yeah at 300 a month getting a 2014 may not be such a smart idea. I had to hold off from buying a wrx until my financial situation stabilized after college. My 2013 wrx runs about 429 a month, not including insurance/gas/tabs/ etc.
I'd follow the life advice from Mikie:
Plus the jump from a crappy honda into the wrx when i could afford it made it that much sweeter. No one can take that satisfaction from you, no matter how badly you might mod your car (in other people's opinions)
Um.. I haven't read through all the posts yet to see if this has been addressed lol. But this is completely wrong. I see your intentions though! If he had a car such as a civic or something that got much better MPG then a wrx then it would make a difference between filling them up with regular, and filling up a rex with premium.
haha whoops ^ my point stands

Graduate college and hold a job that will allow you to maintain your monthly bills with the WRX. It's easy to budget for a car when you have no other expenses but that's not realistic for most people. As someone mentioned all ready, don't make your whole life revolve around this car. The honeymoon period will end and you may question whether it was worth it.
I drive about three minutes to work and of course I drive on the weekends. I usually have to fill up about once every 9-10 days. I do get on it a little bit but not much due it being new and not broke in yet. Ive yet to take it over 5k rpm's. With that being said I'm sure it'll get worse MPG once I get into the turbo more often. My opinion if your living at home and having mommy and daddy take care of things for you then heck yea go buy one. But if you ever intend on getting out of your parents house one day and getting a life of your own then I would suggest keeping the car you have and when your out and on your feet making more than 300 a month go get a new Subi.. Dont break yourself on a car payment. never know when the folks will get tired of ya lol or the girls you try to bring home find it odd you still live in your parents basement!
RIP Paul. You will be missed

Okay so considering that most of you guys are discouraging me about getting a new 2014 WRX considering my financial, living and college situation how would you guys feel about a 2014 Subaru legacy 2.5i sport/limited or a 2014 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart AWD (which I've heard has a hell of a lot of turbo lag. please dont rip me a new one for suggesting this, just using it as a reference due to its similarities with the WRX) or a Ford Fusion Titanium? Pretty much has to AWD and leather options. Thanks
