    Goodbye VW, hello Subie! - '15 ISM WRX Limited

    I've made a few posts already, but not an official introduction. Just bought my first Subie two weeks ago; a '15 ISM WRX limited with nav/hk audio. I had my last ride, a VW GTI, mildly modded, but it doesn't even compare to the WRX. Love this car.

    Welcome and congradulations! I just went through a similiar experience, came out of an older audi a4 and into a '15 WRX WR blue, and the feeling is mutual to yours!

    And the first upgrade... I'm pretty sure it adds 19bHP [baby horsepower]

    you see this is where the hatch comes in handy, it was much easier to convince the wife to let me get the WRX because how sporty could a hatchback be? lol plus I actually could fit the stroller in the back easier than her old dodge caliber. However you could always pull the "this car is stupid safe just check the crash test ratings!" no mom is going to say no to safe car for their child right?

    Well played. My wife wasn't too hard to convince since I was coming from a 2 door with a failing clutch.

    The trunk on the WRX is pretty ridiculous. I can get the jogging stroller in and out with no issues at all. Even fits several sets of golf clubs with ease... Just sayin.
