    Hey everyone, I picked up an 08 sedan a couple weeks ago and have been loving it ever since. I got a great deal for the car with 14,250 miles, stick shift, pretty much base model. I've wanted a WRX since I first started watching the WRC in 2001. I haven't decided if I'll be driving it off road or not. I've been through the site learning a ton about the car. I definitely agree with many people's choice to change the stock stereo, it's aweful. I'll be doing that first. Here are a few pictures I've taken of the car.
    This picture was taken at the top of Cheyenne Mountain AFS


    The next couple pictures are from my phone the day I got it.

    The car came with a SPT exhaust and I love the sound it makes. Is this an option from factory? The guy at Carmax said they don't sell cars with aftermarket parts on them.


    This was taken May 2nd. I absolutely love Colorado Springs because of the cooler weather. I moved from TX in Feb so the change in climate is great.


    That's my 91 Suburban as well. It's the reason I was looking for a car with better gas mileage. I have an 05 Ninja ZX6R but it's not warm enough to ride it every day. I'm looking forward to learning about and upgrading the car and possibly the meets I've read about people having. Oh yeah, does anyone know how to get a subwoofer box into the trunk with the slope it has?

    Nice car, I'll look for it in the parking lot. Mine is the blue one, usually parked near the TSF or whatever the building is called now.

    Bubba02Sti - I don't think I'll be tearing up the dirt until I get a good percentage of the car paid off so I won't have any hassle with the insurance if something bad happens to it.

    momo02WRX - Thanks, hopefully I can keep it that way for a while.

    Stawgn10 - I may have seen yours up there. I'll keep an eye out next time. My company moved me to Peterson so I only get to go to the mountain on tuesdays and thursdays and that's only in the GOV. I liked working up there MUCH more than where I work now. I was looking forward to driving the WRX up the hill in the winter.

    Another WRX owner from the Springs. Picked up my 2010 sedan in Dec. Maybe I'll see you around town.
