Hello, thought I'd give a quick "about me". My name is Eric, I'm 21, and I'm from New Jersey. I've been lurking the forums for over a year now trying to decide which car is best for me. I graduate this summer, and am hoping to get hired at where I am currently interning. Best case scenario, between my 09 Civic EX and the pay I am expecting, I will have enough money by October to put a down payment on a new car, including registration, insurance, etc. and have enough money put aside to pay 6 or so months of insurance and car payments.
After more than a year of research and wishful thinking, my problem boils down to this: which model wrx do I buy? By October I expect Subaru to have announced the 2013 models, so I am going to say hypothetically they are exactly what I have been hoping for and around the same price range.
Based on current prices and features, I'm not sure which model I want. I do love my sunroof, but heated seats are not really my thing. For the price difference, I'm not quite sure it's worth it from base to premium. I'm not a fan of leather seats though, so I'm not interested in the limited.
The STi is an entirely different scenario. I'll have to wait longer to get it, or risk not having a few months for a safeguard. The 6speed transmission and extra horsepower and other goodies may make it worth my while.
What I'm asking is for your input. I'm definitely getting a wrx, I made this decision over a year ago. It's definitely going to be a hatch because that's my taste, and I either want it in black or wr blue pearl and I want the short throw shifter. I am open to pretty much anything else.
So what do you guys think? Give me some insight.
