    New WRX Owner

    Well, I joined the forums a few years ago with the plan to get a WRX, and that never happened....until now. I just purchased a 2008 Satin White Pearl Sedan. The car is fantastic, and I've already got a CAI, Springs, and an Exhaust sitting in the garage waiting to be installed (I'm going to wait until I have 5K miles before putting them on). Anyways, just wanted to say hey, here are pics:

    Congrats on the car. The sedan isn't my favorite, but good looking all the same.

    I almost bought the exact car until the salesman opened the trunk and i seen the rear suspension bumps in the trunk liner.I asked him if he could fold the seats down so i could see the room and he said "they don't fold down".I just looked at him with a disgusted look and said "serious?" He said "I think you would be happier in the hatch."And I am.
    Is it true that they don't have a 60/40 split?I thought all new cars had that

    Still an awesome car.Congrats!.I love mine more and more everyday.

    Welcome Littleguy! I almost bought the same car, but the white one on the lot didn't have premium package.

    Your salesman was highly misinformed. Why didn't you check out the back seat yourself?

    The back seat most definitely is a 60/40 split.

    Very interesting.Thanks. I think i will pay that salesman a visit soon.He misinformed me on many fronts and i would love to clarify them all with him.
    I was fed up after having 3 used STI (04 and 2 06) fail inspections.I said F-it , I'll just buy a new wrx.
    After financing ,trade in,test drives,color and option choices i just wanted to get the hell out of there with my car. I somewhat trusted what he had to say.Big mistake.
    I know for my next car i will be fully armed.

    The only reason I've been thinking about it is because I love the ability to just pull off the road onto a field and have fun with the car. I'm afraid I might lose that with the springs. Although, I was looking at them last night and I'm really tempted to just install them this weekend. I think I'll install something this weekend, maybe the intake.
