I just ordered my first car: a white pearl 2014 wrx hatch!
I started driving a my dads 87 land cruzer and after getting a full ride to college they bought me a 01 bmw 330i with 70k miles... Now 7 years later it has 150k and counting! I love that car but in college I started getting into camping and mountain biking and I just feel bad taking it on all the fire, rock and dirt roads. Plus repairs0 are starting to cost more then what its worth.
I was originally looking at trucks and almost bought a Toyota Tacoma TRD sport. Lucky for me the dealer jacked us around for about 4 hours and while we waiting my dad suggested I test drive a 2012 wrx sedan they had on the lot. The sales guy obviously had no idea what it was and made the mistake of telling me to "test out the power".... The rest was history. I came back with the biggest smile and a very rattled car sales man.
I have always wanted a wrx/sti but that was the first time I actually got to drive one. I still plan on purchasing a Tacoma eventually but I'm very glad I decided not to get one as my only vehicle.
Here are some pictures of the bmw since it will be a LONG wait for my wrx.
After driving thought a snow storm (scary **** for a rwd car on sport tires)
