    First-Time WRX Owner

    I finally got my 2015 WRX. I've waited for years and drove a 2011 Legacy, but it just wasn't enough. I'm probably not your typical WRX owner being 65 and a grandmother, but I've always liked performance cars. I live where it snows, so had to have the AWD.
    Are there any other over-60 WRX owners out there like me that just refuse to be part of the Lincoln Towncar crowd?

    welcome to the club! we definitely have an over 60 crowd here. it's not as uncommon as you think

    i could only hope to still be driving an awesome car when i'm a grandma in the future!

    also, just out of curiosity: did you get the 6 speed or CVT?

    Welcome to ClubWRX! Congrats on the 2015 WRX. That's awesome you are 65 years old and drive a WRX!

    Be careful with the WRX in the snow with the stock summer tires. They are not meant for snow conditions.

    6-speed, of course! I've been driving stick shifts since I learned on a '56 Chevy!

    Welcome to the club and congrats!

    I hate vanity plates, but for "WRX GRMA" I will make an exception. That is simply awesome.

    Hope you enjoy your stay! Could be a silly question, but do you plan on getting involved in the WRX tuning community with modifications or will this be a largely "stock" machine?

    Glad to see you here WRX Grandma. 74 year old WRX Grandpa here. Stick Shifts Forever.
    Took my neighbors 10 year old grandson for a ride yesterday. His comment was "Awesome". I asked what was awesome, he said this car, I should be driving a van.
    I gave him a short turbo blast.
