    New Guy

    What's up guys.
    I don't know what you all want to know about me, but short bio is, I've been working in the car industry since I was 14, and am currently working at a BMW center as a parts advisor. I drive a POS 2000 Camry, which I hope to get rid of ASAP. The car I want to upgrade to is the newest generation WRX/STI. I'm hoping you all have some useful information for me, so I can be the most informed when I go to purchase/lease a WRX. I have tapatalk so I will be putting this forum on my phone and I will start becoming a more active member, hopefully.

    I figured I'd keep this more towards my car and my car interests, aside from my boring everyday likes and dislikes.

    Catch you around,
    Hans

    Thing is, I don't have the down payment to afford a new one, or else I would totally buy a new one, hence the lease. If I buy, it would mean used, and working at a dealer I know plenty of horror stories about used cars.

    Welcome! I upgraded from a POS 1996 Saturn so I know how that feels. Are you looking at getting an '11 or '12?

    You do not have to put a down payment on a new car hell I have never put anything down on any of my cars. But you do have to put some cash down on a lease.

    Welcome...

    I reciently got a job as a service advisor for a Mazda dealer and have been in the auto industry for a total of 9 years... I'd say purchase versus the lease, no sense in making payments on a car you won't own IMHO and why not look into a lightly used 09 or 10 with less then 20k miles? You should be able to find one for about 4-5k less then msrp of a new one (assuming the interest rate isnt much higher)...

    and not to mention, dont dare go over the given mileage on a lease, and this car will be so fun to drive it wouldn't be hard going over.

    No kidding... I've had mine for a little under a month and already have over 3k on it. I did road trip it from Napa down to LA to see my woman though.
