I just picked up a 2013 STI limited. It's a sedan. It's black and and completely stock. Has just under 14k miles. Hoping to learn a bunch. I have a little bit of mechanical knowledge and most of it is from working on miatas. I got rid of my 2014 lexus is250. It was boring me to death. I can't believe how expensive these subaru things are. I was looking at two other cars, evo x and 135i. The evo was ruled out due to the interior feel and most importantly because it didn't feel sporty when I sat in it and drove it. The 135i is faster and great build but I was disappointed on resale value. Maintenance and repair cost kinda scared me a bit having owned a 335i before the Lexus too. All in all I'm happy with the decision. Yes I drove the new STI but I prefer the looks of this body better. And to make the STI feel a little more up to par I waited for one like this, with leather, sunroof, navi, and all the nice features.
Best part of it all, my car allowance covers the payment with a little extra that'll go towards the principle every month. Cheers and good to meet you all.
