First WRX, first post! So I was looking for a WRX for a few months and when the new ones started hitting the dealers in September I felt like I had to jump on it. Man are they in demand and fly off the lots. I found one about an hour and a half away (a dark gray base model with a couple options -- spoiler and fog lights) and put a down on it over the phone. Went to the dealer, finalized the details, and then it was time to teach myself to drive stick in the parking lot, haha. After 20 minutes or so of starting (and stalling), I was ready for the trip home.
The next day I called into work and designated the day just for driving it. I started out just driving around the neighborhood, starting and stopping every couple of houses. Well... one of the neighbors ended up calling the cops on me later in the day, but the cop was understanding and got a good laugh out of it.
I've had it less than a week, but love it already. I'm still learning how to drive stick smoothly so that's where most of my time has been spent, but it sounds really good and already I can feel how well it handles and man is it quick (however, I'm trying to stay out of the turbo for the first 1,000 miles or so to help with breaking in the engine).
I was already part of the Subaru family (my wife and I bought an 05 Forester a few years ago) but am definitely glad to have a WRX now too.
Anyway, here are a couple pics (and lets go bills!).
