    WRX coming next week!

    I first drove a 2001 WRX and loved the experience. It was an automatic, but I was hooked from that point on. Over the years I have never stopped wanting one, yet went with other car choices. I first had a Scion tc, then last year moved to a Hyundai Elantra. I do a fair amount of commuting with a 45 minute drive to work, but I found the driving experience in my Elantra to be severely lacking. That fun to drive factor was missing, and really any steering feel at all for that matter. After a year of driving it I came to the conclusion I need something different. I was originally going to wait for newly designed WRX (hopefully for 2014), and in the meantime was going to pay off the rest of the Elantra. However, today I went with my girlfriend to the Subaru dealership to look at a new impreza for her. Upon arriving there was a bright blue WRX sitting there on the lot. I didn't think there would be a chance in the world that there would be any 12s left, but there it was. This was strictly a trip to look for a new car for my girlfriend, but as the day went on it became something different. We left the dealership to look at a CRV and the whole time my girlfriend was encouraging me to get the WRX. I couldn't believe she was on my side, and after talking it out we ended up going back to the subaru dealer. Long story short; awesome girlfriend and 2 subarus ordered (2013 impreza hatchback for her and 2012 WRX for me!)

    Its a standard model, with short shifter & spoiler. Here are a few pics from the dealer:







    Can't wait for her to be mine...Next week can't come fast enough. Look forward to sharing with you guys on the forum.

    Congrats! I'm confused though, why do you have to wait until next week if the car is on the lot now?

    I have to pick it up next week because I won't be able to get to the dealer until next Friday. Plus I didn't have my Elantra with me to be appraised for a trade in. It's okay, one last week to say goodbye to the Elantra. Hello WRX!

    Yeah, that's cool, you'll love the WRX. I just sold my 2006 Scion tC to get my new 2012 WRX, liked the tC, did a TON of work to it, but it just doesn't compare to AWD Turbo
