Hey guys. Im Alan. Just wanted to swing over and say that Im in the market for a new car. I've had an 00 S4 which I loved, though it was an automatic since it was my first car but got rid of it due to it having high mileage and didn't want to risk any problems, and presently have an 07 Rx8, which I learned manual on, and loved the car at first, but I've had so many damn problems with. Im convinced its a lemon. ANYWAY. So I've been in the lookout for a new car possibly. Even before the S4, I had almost purchased an 05 Sti. I've loved the subies from way back when, and had always wanted it even as my first car. Ended up skipping over it though due to such high insurance for theft reasons here in NJ. Started looking at the 08 R32's but I need manual! Then I started looking at the 08 09 Wrx's. At first I hated the hatch, which is mainly why I hadn't even thought about purchasing a Subie, but then it grew on me and now I love it so much. Im convinced this car is the car for me. Awesome power and torque (which is lacking in the rx8) and AWD which again, the Rx8 blows in NJ snow, and who can forget that awesome rumble that I cant get enough of.
Anyway, sorry for the long read guys. Just wanted to share my excitement with all you guys and Ill keep you guys updated! Cant wait for the snow to come
