    GOT IT

    UPDATE:

    They would not budge at all on the used 6k miles for $26,400. He said he really couldn't (very nice salesman). I did like the SPT exhaust, but man it gets very deep and throaty in low RPMs (i could do without it TBH). He knew I was not 100% happy about our deal, so he cut me a new deal for $400 under invoice for a 2011 WRX Premium with 3 miles on it....

    No haggling, no back and forth BS, just a perfect experience...

    Only thing I was back and forth on was the extended bumper to bumper, but I got it anyway.. $600 for an extra year and 25k miles to cover the whole time it's financed.

    Here's the pic. AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR THE HELP!!!Click image for larger version.

    honestly the 08 is a piece of crap i found 1 for 23k with 30k miles on it walked away the next week found an 09 for 20k with 30k miles also charcoal instead of silver and the 09+ has stiffer suspension better clutch and overall way better feel

    well people, i would recommend staying away from a 2008 wrx. that model was not successful. the 2009 onwards was much better with the 265 bhp. i would recommend going in for the '11 as it is much better looking and has a striking resemblance to the STI (with the beefed up body) and wider track.

    no offense meant to anyone who has a 2008.

    THIS.

    I think some people would want the less flashy body of the '09 '10, but yeah, get that extra HP, and if you get it with low enough miles you can still keep within that warranty.

    They are just so rare that it becomes a full time job just finding one. GOOD LUCK.

    A little more than a month ago I decided to test drive a used '10 WRX. It was a base model and I wasn't really happy with it. Wanted an '11 and some more amenities. 2 days later my salesman called me. Said they just took in a 2011 and I should come look at it. So I did and I bought it. It was a 2011 WRX limited with 700 miles on it, for $27500.

    thanks! driving it like a grandma still. whenever i hear the slightest pebble ping in the wheel well i'm tempted to stop and make sure everything's okay, ha.

    anything you guys deem 'necessary' to get? i keep reading about the mudflaps; i will be driving it in some snow (NC Appalachians); any thoughts on the necessesity?

    all weather mats? short throw? so many decisions

    i'm very green to performance cars. my car history is - '94 S-10 -> 2000 Grand Prix SE -> 2007 Grand Prix SE -> WRX

    Honestly, take this advice and spend the money ASAP and get a clear bra. I didn't and have 6500miles in my car and I will be getting my front bumper repainted.

    It will cost you $500-$1,000 to get it done. but get the front bumper 18-24inches of the hood done and fenders, I think they usually do 1/f of the fenders.

    Or be like me and want to cry everytime you wash yoru car and find 10+ chips in your bumper.

    RA mudflaps are cool but on SWP I don;t think the look good IMO but will have 0 chips on the side of the car.

    Hi, I purchased my first subie recently- a base 2011 wrx hatch with short throw shifter, spt catback and all weather mats. Am having the rally armor mudflaps installed now. Of these, I'd say the least value to me was the catback. Right now, it's just a noisemaker and makes me look like a teenager (which I am not, by a long shot) . Next up is new stereo headunit, spkrs and audio integration sub. Am toying with getting accessport to go stage 1 but I only have 500 miles on the car now :-) So I think I'll try and use some self control. But from reading the boards, a downpipe in at around 5000 miles is my plan. My dealership installs performance parts and I'd prefer to pay them the extra cash to do the install so that they are nicer when it comes to potential warranty issues...
    All the best! Keep reading these forums and asking questions. A lot of good info here!
