    NEW to ClubWRX//WHY DO I WANT A WRX??

    Hey I'm new to the site. I drive a 2002 BMW 330ci 5-Speed which I love. It's a gem,I picked it up in April 08' with 2300 miles!! The previous owner had another 9 cars ranging from C63 to a Maserati. Anyway a couple of my friends have WRX's, and I know I want one. My Dad is taking my BMW in the spring, and I'm getting a new car. Why should I get a WRX?

    Don't get a WRX.

    Buy one cause you want one, it doesn't do magic tricks.

    Because you live in New Jersey (you have winters) and it's AWD, goes like a bat out of hell, handles great, is made in Japan, has a 5 star safety rating, and costs $24k new. There's nothing on the market even close! The only bummer is dealing with the summer/winter tire thing if you buy an 09. I've go 400 miles on mine and now I'm going to spend another grand on tires and wheels.

    I stated that I did want a WRX. I wouldn't be getting anything newer than an 05-06' so the whole tire situation wouldn't be a problem. Can't I put all-season tires on? Whats your favorite part of your WRX? Handling? Speed? And what's the reliability?

    It's a blast to drive, it's got a ton of aftermarket support for it. The interior of the 02-07 is rather bland and uninspiring, but turn the key and rev the engine with a good aftermarket exhaust system, and start driving and you won't care

    It's a driver car, drive a couple if you don't like driving it, just forget about it, there are plusher interiors (08/09) and also there are more features with other brands/models. But for heck yeah fun to drive, it is awesome.

    what other cars are in your scope? What's your budget? I'm assuming since you're looking to buy a used 06-07 wrx you want to stay at around the 17k mark?

    My big reason behind my wrx was the AWD and the turbo have the wrx turbos are cheap good in the snow and alot of fun to drive and with 1500 to 2500 you can get a wrx up to 250 whp give or take sti of coarse would be more

    If you want one, why are you asking us why you want one?
