    Buying 017 Base Model in Silver on Saturday morning in Waco,TX

    I still haven't even bought the car yet but wanted to post here to see if there was any advice when purchasing a new Base Model WRX. I have driven it twice already and it was very hard to not pull the trigger on the second road test.
    I am originally from Seattle and these cars are everywhere up there but down here in central Texas west of Waco there are almost none. Its crazy hard to find them down here.
    Any tips or advice before I buy the WRX?

    Guess it depends on what type of tips you are looking for?

    Financial tips?

    * Secure financing before you go to the dealership on-line, credit union, etc. since it will give you an idea of what you will pay per month at X dollars as a down payment and more importantly will give you an idea of what you can get for a annual percentage rate on the loan . . . but don't be afraid to see if the dealership can better that offer.

    * Ordering vs. buying off the lot often can save you money . . . plus you get all the stuff you want and none of the stuff you don't.


    Break In Tips?

    * Keep it under 4,000 rpm for the first 1,000 miles.

    * I personally chose to change out my oil at that point . . . some folks wait.


    Maintenance Tips?

    * Watching the oil level and changing oil is pretty important . . .

    * Depending on what you get for weather you may want to consider all weather tires or snow tires for the winter months.

    Many people indicate the stock audio is terrible. I have the harmon system and I am happy enough with it since im not a audio nut.

    Advice would be to buy what you want, not what someone on here tells you.

    When I went to the dealer I was planning on a base model Impreza, walked out with a WRX and have been smiling since.

    I couldnt wait until tomorrow, I went and bought the WRX this evening. I cannot wait until the sun comes up so I can go put some more miles on it. It has 81 sitting in the driveway at the moment.
    Thanks for the advice everyone. Very much appreciated.

    The Silver looks really good in bright sunlight, which I imagine you have a lot of down there. ;-)

    Tint your windows and get a good windshield sun screen!

    BTW, my fiancee is addicted to Fixer Upper, so I guess I have seen every single house in Waco at least once. It looks really cool on the show--didn't know there were so many neat houses and neighborhoods in that town.

    I have spent a lot of time in San Antonio with the Air Force--only a short drive in Texas miles. I do like that part of the country.

    I was researching a new Impreza, before the 2017s came out. I did it that I couldn't get both a sunroof AND manual transmission. That left me with only one choice....
    A BRAND NEW 2017 WRX!
    This is my first turbo car and I'm loving it!
    My last DD, for about 9 years, was a 2003 Legacy with sunroof and manual transmission. The new WRX is virtually the same size and weight with 100 more horses. WAHOO!
    On 09 September 2016, I drove off in a Lapis Blue, WRX Limited 6mt, with NAV/HK/BSD/RCTA + STS, Homelink, Aero Splash Guards, Side Molding, Door Edge Guards & Cargo Tray.
