    Subaru owner, just not a WRX, yet...

    Hello Club WRX, I just joined the site. I'm on my second Impreza, the first was a 1999 Outback Sport that was totalled by a new driver that came flying out of her driveway into my passenger-side. Nobody was hurt, but my beloved Subaru was destroyed. Now I'm driving a 2007 Impreza Wagon, a good car but I'm seriously thinking of a 2012 (or 2013) WRX 5-door. Got some decisions to make... the WRX does look good.

    The only things holding me back are that my 2007 is paid for and that I am trying to decide whether to sell my old Miata or not. The Miata has a rocker panel/rust issue that will need fixing so I need to get a price on what that will cost to repair. If the cost is too high then I will probably sell the Miata on eBay, trade in the '07 Impreza and go for a WRX. Plus I only have room in the garage for one car. The Miata is not a snow car, I need a good snow car up here in New York. The Miata is a summer car, I take it off the road from Thanksgiving until St. Paddy's Day, seems like a lot of time to sit in the garage under cover.

    Well, if you're looking to go from two cars to one car that can be fun and practical throughout the year, the WRX is it!

    Thanks for the welcome guys. I have a feeling the estimate from the body shop to fix the Miata's rockers is gonna be pretty steep and will make the decision for me. The big decision will be a 2012 or wait for the 2013 to come out...
