Just stopping in for the obligatory introduction thread. Not sure how long I'll be around this community, but I'm hoping for a while at least.
A bit about my current situation:
I drive a 2005 Focus ST. Decent car with decent handling, yada yada. I purchased it about a year ago after being carless for a few months. At the time, I was a new buyer, no money down with decent credit (needed more history, as always).
Anyway, LONG story short, I've since gotten a few raises, might be getting another one in the next 6months. I like all the features of the ST, but it's never been a snug fit. I've been looking into a bunch of cars, mostly older and used ones. Specifically, 91-94 DSM's vs. payments/insurance each month. However, I like the idea of a warranty and don't plan to extensively mod any car under warranty (haven't touched a hair on my ST, despite having the itch).
I've put in the word to a friend of mine who works at a dealership. He's looking around for an '05 Silver WRX (I considered the STi, but would rather have less money tied up in payments and insurance each month). So we'll see what happens.
So, as of now, I'm shopping around...but I always like to know everything about a car I'm interested in. I've been scanning this forum for about a day or two now and feel right at home. I look forward to learning more about the cars and becoming more familiar with this crowd.
