    I really wasn't sure about them at first, I was kind of set on looking for a 2011 since I already fell in love with our STi, all it took was seeing the blue in person, and bam, I was sold the headlights aren't as "bright" as I originally thought, look much better in person imo.

    Thanks again everyone!

    Welcome ma'am.
    Very nice car.

    Whats the differences you quickly realized and liked/disliked between the R32? a kid in town has a tuned one, I was wondering if its just like the wrx? (he has an older AWD model)

    I absolutely loved my R32, and really had no complaints about it. He probably has a 2004 R? I would imagine that would be a closer comparison to the wrx than my 2008 was. But then again, they are two totally different animals.

    -One of the biggest things that I missed while having the R was having a manual transmission as in 2008 they only came with DSG in the US (which was awesome and can shift way faster than I ever could imagine), but it took some of the fun out of it.
    -It was a more "refined" car than the WRX or STi, as far as the interior and some other minor things go, but I already knew that before trading her in.
    -I needed a more practical car..... 4 doors....better mpg (I was pleasantly surprised when driving the WRX home)

    I need a week or two to really become one with the WRX

    and a picture for good measure

    Good, glad you enjoy the new vehicle.

    Personally, no manual? Not interested. One of the things I look for more then any other, is does the car come in stick lol, I feel even tho the other trans can shift faster, its still not the same, you can't completely control everything. Either way, Nice lookin R32. Enjoy the WRX!

    Thanks At first I was unsure about the DSG, but it was actually a lot of fun to drive, paddle shifters made it a little more fun, but it was definitely missing something. I had my fun with it and would recommend it to anyone if asked, I was just ready for something different. It didn't help that shortly after getting the R, my husband got the STi, I was soooooooooo jealous haha.

    I do not regret my decision at all

    Can someone please make it 5pm? I want to go for a drive
