I've recently bought a 2008 WRX, selling my 2001.5 Passat 1.8T. I'm still learning how to drive the WRX smoothly, but my biggest problem is that I often realize that I'm driving far faster than I should - shooting past another vehicle at 50, in a 35 MPH speed limit, or hitting 80 on a 55 mph freeway. Now, it's not that I'm an excitable youngster (I'm old enough to remember when the first vehicle in this class, the Audi Quattro, came out), but it's just too easy to go fast in this thing.
No speeding tickets (except one from a traffic camera) in 30 years of driving - I hope this record lasts.
I had your same problem.
The first week I had my car I got pulled over doing 92 in a 55....the worst part is that I didn't even realize it!!!!
In my case, this just goes away with tiime...but what could you expect from a WRX.

Yes, I didn't mean my comment too seriously, just an indication of how much fun I'm having. When I first bought the vehicle, I was dissapointed that it didn't feel much quicker than my Passat. But the vehicle is deceptively fast - the comes in so smoothly that you don't realize the acceleration, so you can't just the speed by "feel". I'll learn - hopefully before too many tickets.
Buy a Honda!

Observe the Recommended engine break in time like the gospel and you will be rewarded with reliability and complimentary fuel mileage to boot.
