    My 2003 WRX now has a 2012 WRX brother!

    I've been a member here awhile but thought I'd post up pics of my new 2012 WRX. I decided to keep my 2003WRX and trade in my Miata instead. Sounds stupid but I didn't want to part with my Bugeye WRX. It's actually kind of neat driving both cars. My 2003 feels very raw, loud and rough unrefined compared to my 2012. Damn, the engine in this 2012 is a jewel. I'm so used to the turbo lag in my '03 that I find myself jack rabbit starting all the time in my 2012. Anwway, here's some pics of them side by side. I didn't realize how much bigger and roomier the 2012's were until I test drove one.

    Love bugeyes. WRXs are one of the few car models that I consistently love the design over all of the years.

    So how do you choose between the two?

    The best way to choose between two vehicles for me...which one can I leave behind so that Lindsay has to fill it up if she uses it? lol

    LMAO!

    Actually, the '03 makes kind of a good "beater car" for when I drive to places where parking sucks

    I cannot believe how in demand WRX's are. Two guys at work found out I bought a new 2012 and they are hounding me to sell my 2003 WRX to them. When I was at the dealer they were pretty much begging me to trade in my 2003.

    My car has its share of dings, and a dent or two. It looks decent from 30 feet away, so it's all good.
