as of right now, i have saved up 12,000. My dad agreed to match whatever i pay but when i got to 8000, he put a limit on it. I have a job as a busboy at possibly the nicest steak houses in town and make around 60-100 a night in tips. I could easily save up more money but i want your guys opinions. Performance wise, the 09 winds hands down. 265 hp stock is amazing but the body style of the hatch and sedan are disgusting. I really like the 06-07 but they just dont perform as well as the newer wrx's and most of them are beat and have higher milage. If i could pick any model, i would go with the 2011 wrx forsure. The huge sti fenders they put on it and the other options added are a big improvement. However, i know that there will be no used 2011's up for sale. What is the lowest OTD price i could get on a 2011 wrx hatch with taxes? Is it even worth it to get the 2011 over the 2009? Keep in mind, im 17 and am a junior in high school. I know insurance is going to be up there but my dad agreed to pay however much my insurance is now(2008 altima) and i will pay the difference.
