    I drove jeeps and large trucks on our property when i was 10. Instead of buying me a GoKart i had a old ass jeep that my uncles got me for hunting. I didn't need a license to drive on our property so i had tons of fun.

    When i was 15 i had a Civic that i took to the track and when i turned 17 the WRX hit the market but i didn't have the funds to buy one until i joined the Marines. However, I never purchased my childhood dream car until i was almost 30 (well im a few day away now).

    If you can afford the car then buy it. You only have one chance in life to do what you really want to do. Then you'll get married and you gun money will turn to baby money. Therefore, i suggest having fun and being safe while you can. The Subaru is way safer than the Honda. If you plan on modding the car then youll blow crap up in the honda anyway so you might as well get a car that is turbo charged already.

    Ive owned 3 hondas and they arent bad cars to modify but they cost money to make reliable power depending on the block (these were 90s early 2000s. Not sure how they handle power these days since ive been out of the Honda game for a while now).

    Neon SRT 4s can be decent cars. I've seen some fast ones, and if you dont heavily mod them then they are pretty reliable.

    My buddy had a 2006 WRX that he just gave to his 15 year old son as a track car. The car is still as reliable and safe as it was from day one. They are great cars if you find one that's been taken care of.

    My grammar sucks at times when im on the forums and im an English major. Im not getting paid to be here and its not an assignment so there is little reason for me to care if my sentence is grammatically correct. Moreover, i use a tablet or phone to communicate on the forums so ensuring my sentence structure and word choice is up to the high standards of those viewing my dribble would take more time than i care to put forth on such an endeavor.

    Thank's for the helpful advice!! But yes i've thought long and hard, I really want one. Not because someone wants me to get it, or to impress people. But because I love the car, I'm sure I wont be that stereotypical teenager that everyone talks trash about. I'm also currently practicing in an empty parking lot with my uncles 2015 STI. If you guys have anymore advice i'd love to hear it btw.

    If your practicing i dont see the problem jumping straight to a wrx or Sti. If you have the money to throw down then its not an issue. It only takes a short time to get used to these cars and awhile time to master it. I dont regret jumping straight to my Sti and my buddies who bought other vehicles wish they had.

    ^Agree. Some people just cant handle the responsibility. Be safe and im sure your do fine.

    Also, your uncles car handles differently than an older model so make sure you practice just as much, if not more, than you are now.

    If it's all your money and help help from parents, get a beater. If your parents are going to help you WHEN it break down, then by all means, get a stock 2002 wrx. Just wear a helmet.
    I don't put too much weight on age, you know yourself better than we do. I sold my 2001 z28 bolt on camaro to a 24 year old with a solid job. 3 weeks later I called him to see how my old baby was treating him to find out he wrapped it around a tree, killing himself, the week before.
    Good luck!

    It's not meant as a personal slam against you. We just like to encourage people to use proper grammar as it makes our reading pleasure go up a few notches. Just keep reading posts from people that don't care to type legibly and you will get to that point too

    Most of us aren't English major's but take the time to type up readable posts and appreciate it when others do to. If you choose not to you will still get responses in a helpful manner, but also slight nudges to type more legibly

    All is good in the forum world.

    Also. Despite the fact that we view you as a young driver and that brings out the parent in us telling you these cars can be dangerous, we also realize that any vehicle can be dangerous. We are just telling your our personal opinions, which you can take as you will. I know I for one appreciated the lower cost of the 2.5i that I drove for 5 years before my current car. I appreciated having the money to spend on things that were more fun than driving a car (believe it or not).

    I say get what you want. Its not like your buying a brand new 30k wrx or 40k sti.. I will say I agree with what a lot of people are saying and learn the roads. You can do this in a wrx but just be safe. I prey nothing happens to you or anyone else on the road while your out. But I will say accidents do happen and as a first time driver your more prone to them. It be your call on what you get in the end. Just my thought is i'd rather wreck a crappy car learning the roads and more important how other people drive than to learn the hard way in a car that you fell in love with the moment you seen it..
    RIP Paul. You will be missed

    I must say,remembering when I received my license, I was very alert and obeying all the laws to the fullest extent. I was very responsible. And then two to three months rolled by and you relax a little bit. Make sure you just stay on top of your everyday driving skills as a whole. Dont get lazy.

    +1...it was to the OP anyway.

    I've always thought that if you take the time to better your speech/grammar/spelling in ALL facets of life that it will make the world just a little bit better. So many people just don't care anymore and its sad. Its completely evident on forums and in text land these days.
