    First time Subaru owner !

    Heyas !

    Finally traded in my Mazda Rx-8 for a White WRX 5 Door !

    I test drove the veloster turbo and focus st but I've always loved the look of the subie and I just had to have it ! Plus I wasnt excited about going to FWD after owning a RWD vehicle.

    Anyways, glad to be a part of the community and I've already found some good ideas for mods here in the forum.

    Oh and I'll post pics this week when I take delivery.

    It was terrible. About 20-21 on the highway and about 14-15 in the city. Ugg.

    So I finally am past 1k miles (yeah I know took me a while but I live 10 minutes from work)

    I've started getting on the gas a bit and wow it's a LOT more fun than the RX8 !

    That feeling around 4k rpm is addictive lol. It almost feels like the car is gonna ride right out from under me. I love it hehe.

    I'm only at 200 miles...1000 is going to take forever! I only work 2 miles from my house lol. How are your MPG's? I don't think they'd be THAT much better than the 8 lol

    2 miles from work ! Lol I feel for ya man.

    When I got on the gas in the 8 I could swear I saw the fuel gauge dropping. Yeah I'm exaggerating a little.

    The WRX is better. Not a LOT better but it is noticeable. Maybe 4-5 mpg better all around. But it's a hell of a lot more fun so I'll take it
