    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.

    Thanks guys, and yes this is my first WRX. Tried an 2011 Impreza OBS for a year to get my feel of Subaru, and got to say a thoroughly loved it, but the NA motor just needed a little more, so I upgraded to the WRX. I have owned more than 100 different cars and I am looking forward to seeing what makes the WRX tick. Thanks again for the welome.

    Crazy enough, yes literally. Used to buy them tear apart, fix them up, get bored with them, then sell them to move onto the next project. The longest I have owned one would be the 15 years I have had the 71 Triumph Spitfire and my 78 Pontiac Firebird. Other than that 6 months would be having a car for a long time. Marriage and kids slowed it down quite a bit, but the kids are gone now so the fun can begin again....

    Well took all of 24 hrs before some ass-hat gave me a door ding. Parked as far away from anyone as possible but yet someone still felt the need to throw a door into mine.
    Thanks again for the welcome..

    Hopefully, no paint damage? If not, go see the paintless-dent-remover guy (I will now refer them to ass-hat antagonists). They can do WONDERS.......well worth $100 or so on a brand new car.
