    27, single father of one 5 yo boy, working in service engineering. The WRX is what 'grown up kids' would drive, and are driving.

    WRX is where it's at. Age ain't nothin' but a number.

    Theres a guy at autoX thats gotta be mid 60's, literally waks around with a cane, then gets in his 06 Sti and dominates. I think thats awesome. Plus somoe of the mods are pushing 80+ so don't feel bad.

    I read all 3 pages, and I think you have your answer. Go get a WRX already.

    I think you mean you have the rich parents because I drove a 91 Ford Escort when I was 17. BTW, my parents haven't had anything to do with a car purchase since I was 17.

    Dude, with all due respect, stop that "stinkin thinkin!" Who cares what mhigh school kids are driving? I see teenagers in everything from Mustangs to Civics....

    Myself, I am almost 40 years old and I just bought my first WRX 2 weeks ago. Let me tell you this, its not going to be my last WRX either.

    I am almost 40 years old, hold a "distinguished" white collar job and I keep a clean cut image for work.

    EVERYONE that I know who is my age or close to my age are driving around in Saturn Aura's, Ford Escapes and 500's, or they are in Camry's and Accords and.... Hmmm... Well lets just say they are all driving cars that "vanilla" and have no soul.

    Believe it or not, I get more "awesome!!" comments than I ever thought I would.... Dude, the WRX is a sweet car. Your car is going to be the only 1 of its kind in your jobs parking lot.... Even when you go to the mall or to a resturant... You're not going to see 500 of them like you do with Malibu's and Camry's and Escapes and CR-V's.......

    My WRX is a sweet car. Yeah, its not "refined" to the point where you feel like you're floating on a cloud. The WRX is a car with personality.... Its raw and "gruff" and you will feel the road unlike the other bland cars everyone else is driving. It's also fast.... Damned fast in the 0-60 sprints and even in the 1/4 miles.... Look up all the other cars (all cars!) and check out their 0-60 times and their 1/4 mile times. The WRX is going to be damned near the top of this list with the shortest times. Want to go even faster? Get a tune for a couple hundred dollars and catback exhaust and you got a little "pocket rocket" car on your hands.

    Yeah, I briefly thought about getting a Ford family type car or a Mazda6 (weak engine and an open differential!!!).... I am loving my WRX... and believe it or not, other people my age and older think its cool that I got a WRX.

    So stop the stinkin' thinkin' and buy the car that YOU want to drive. After all, its YOUR car and you should buy what you want.

    Its also not like you're 55 and balding and buying a convertible Mustang to recapture your youth. People buy WRX's because they are great cars for the money and not to boost their ego's and get a younger girl.

    Got my first WRX new in 03 when I was 48.

    My 08 STi should be here next week and my WRX becomes my wife's daily driver.

    When I'm not driving, I enjoy carving the curves with my bike.

    Hey another old man like me tooling around in a WRX! I almost bought a bike a few years ago but decided to throw away some $$ on flying.

    28 and Too Old for WRX....REPLY

    Hey Man- I just turned 36 and bought my WRX when I was 35. A buddy of mine who is 50 said I was having a midlife crisis...whatever. Thats his issue - not mine. I'm in insurance - a pretty sedate field. A client (senior) has already commented that he really likes my car and used to own a subaru. Anyway, I was wondering the same thing you were about the age thing cuz all I seem to see are kids 20-25 driving these. But I agree with the guy that said drive what you want and forget what people think! Life is short - have fun! Screw the camry's etc. - I had an '01 Prius before this and this is SOOO much more fun!

    Bump. Ray is old and he has a WRX. Buy what you enjoy to drive.

    As far as what high schoolers drive, I've seen more than a few 16 year olds behind the wheels of BMWs, Range Rovers, Mercedes, etc. The only cars I'd be embarrassed to drive would be either huge SUVs or anything rolling around with huge spoilers and melon-launchers hanging off the back.
