I never had the chance to say hi to everyone before coz I jumped straight to mods. Lol!
About three weeks ago, I purchased a silver 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX with the Premium pkg. I traded my 2006 Scion tC primarily because I want to drive stick and I want an AWD w/ turbo. Rather than spending $$$$ on mods for the Scion tC, I just traded it in and used the money I saved as down payment.
I love the WRX! I've driven it in the city (I'm from NYC-Queens) and on the highways (running a steady 75 and pushing to 100 is really fun LOL!).
I have never driven a stick AWD before. I guess the two concerns I have are 1) it feels sluggish taking off (I change from 1st to 2nd around 3k rpm, is that normal?) and 2) gear whine on 1st and 2nd gears.
