    Unexpected

    Wellllllllllllllll...I am a new proud owner of a 2012 WRX Limited. Had zero intention of buying one but someone I got bit by the bug. I called the local dealership looking for a STI hatch and he basically told me that its impossible to keep anything like that in stock and they could special order anything I wanted. So we set up a meeting for me to come in so we could discuss everything. I got there and started bull****ting with him about cars and stuff. I currently have a 2010 Genesis Coupe 3.8 also and a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500. So we started talking about the Subby's. He then told me, "I know this isn't what your looking for but trust me, take it for a test ride and I gaurentee you will not be dissapointed. They had one WRX left, three on the lot and two sold just hours before. It had everything I was looking for, minus the STI. Heated seats, sun roof, back seat, nice size trunk, manual tranny, and the list goes on. This car was ordered for someone else but they test drove it and decided they didn't like it. So it only had 17 miles on it. It also came with the SPT Exhaust. So to sum it all up. I test drove it, and couldn't of been happier. We got back started punching numbers, I traded in my Ram and joined the WRX Club. I've had the car for one week today and I just crossed the 500 mile mark. I have a lot of plans in the future for this car, intake, BOV, extra rims for winter tires, debadging, etc. I am also a very passionate photographer so I'm sure I will be posting a lot of my photos and joining in on some wrx talk.

    Thank you.Yeah I am very new to WRX's and even modding cars in general. All I did with the Genesis was put a exhaust on it and got some nice rims. I will be sure to do a lot of research before investing any money. This will be a long term car for me.

    Nah, I wish I had the time for another hobby. My wife tinkers with the camera while I tinker with my car.

    Congrats OP...great pics!

    Definitely skip out on the BOV...and when you order some wheels, they will come with rims on them
