    New Guy here

    sup everyone. My name is Jan(im a guy btw if u think its a girls name). Anyways I drive a 1999 Honda Prelude SH with a few modifications to it. I got that car back in my JR year of High school, and im now 22. Had some fun with a few mods, taking it to autocrossing and road racing at streets of willow. But after just recently graduating from college and getting a new job as a RN, I feel like selling that car and getting a new car that fits my style. I love to snowboard, want to get into surfing, biking and all kinds of sprots, and i love take long drives and plan to take longer trips(mainly snowboarding) d/t funds ill be receiving from my new job. I figured that getting a WRX wagon will do the job. so im here to learn all about the car ask some questions and hopefully fall in love with the car so i can finally make a decision and buy the car. I really love the 07 model but i know i want a new car so the 08 is going to have to do. i hope to learn more about this type of car since i have no idea about Subaru cars and turbo/AWD types. thanks for the future knowledge ill be learning from here

    07 wagon owner here!

    I am still hearing people on this forum saying they are buying new 07s still... Once the 08s came out, dealers had a hard time getting rid of them. I bought mine in late September, and there were still 2 more on the lot.

    Either way - any WRX is great. Good luck.

    interior room is also an issue... due to the new "rounded" hatch, there is substantially less cargo space in the 08 than the 07. My subaru dealer was telling me that lots of people who buy the outback were upset with this. I guess it depends on what you are going to put in the back
