    I am finally an official member of ClubWRX

    I joined this site around half a year ago in hope to gain knowledge and get a WRX or STI out of college. A few things have happened since then and I made a huge unexpected step by moving from a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT to a 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX. I just finished all the paperwork and my dad co-signed on the car making this my first vehicle purchase under my name.

    I was unable to drive it home as I have never driven a manual before. I will start learning tomorrow morning hopefully and maybe start driving it to school in the middle of the week or next week.

    BTW I will post up some pics from my camera phone (as my sister is the only person that owns a digi) in a few days possibly but here is what it came with:
    2006 Subaru Impreza WRX crystal metalic grey
    Momo shifter knob
    Short shifter
    Boost gauge
    wheel lock set (can't be too careful I guess)
    amp/subwoofer

    MSRP-$27,600ish
    Sale Price-$24,600ish
    Invoice is $24,500 with destination I think.
    mind you we lost around $500-$1000 on our trade-in but I think we got a good deal don't you?

    I was at the dealer with my dad for 2 days and about 14 hours total. I got 4 hours of sleep in the past 2 days.......... I couldn't wait to get the car.

    Also I am only 19 and I will get ripped on and stuff but I will be paying for 80% of the car payments. I am also on a speeding ticket meaning I CAN'T have fun for around 4 more months. And after that I will only have a little fun.

    Also I bought this car from Gary Lang in McHenry,IL and they were they nicest people ever. I was dealing with a new salesmen (I saw he made 1 sale so far and talked to 4 other people besides us) and he talked about other things more then the deal itself. But they are a great dealership and I recommend them for anyone else near this area.

    Anyways, hoping to possibly see other WRX drivers and maybe get a wave. but in the meantime...I have to drive my sisters grandam till I learn stick. Oh and sorry for the life's story but I am so excited.

    Edit: here are some pics from my camera phone.




    Pretty good for a US camera phone eh?...EH? ok ok they suck.

    Oh and I forgot to mention a few importent things.

    I will not mod my car untill I pay it off which may be awhile. I also will not abuse it on purpose. (my noobness might abuse it a bit while learning ) And I wont rice it out as I will keep the exterior stock for the most part. And this car was love at first sight...That being said, I will try not to raise all of your insurance rates by my actions.

    I fear not for my rates. I drive a very sensible 4-door wagon with front/side airbags, ABS, collapsable pedals, and even child seat anchors in the back.
    It just happens to be a Stage-II WRX.
    Congratulations on your car. There is still plenty of fun to be had with a stock WRX, especially the '06. You make me a tad jealous with your extra half-liter of displacement.

    I actualy was about to buy a blue TR by mistake but my dad said to me, "the blue one is ugly...it doesnt have the skirts or the fog lights" I was like...wtf...wait a minute...*checks the window sticker and notices the TR* lame! I wanted the blue but now that I look at it more I feel much better with the gray.

    But I can't lower my ride because my driveway has a fairly high bump to get onto it. My friends VW golf taht was lowered couldn't get up it without ripping the front bumper off.

    So did you get a reg. wrx or a LTD? I assume for that price you got a reg wrx (which was my first pick but I couldnt find any). Pics or ban.

    Congrats on the purchase......Says you live in Algonquin.....I live in Yorkville, which is a little ways south on Rt. 47 from you. Once you figure out how to drive the manual you should swing down this way. Enjoy the new ride.
    I drive a WRX and work for Harley-Davidson .

    I added some pics to my first post.

    Also, it was my first day driving and I must have killed it about 15 times. But I think by tuesday I will be driving to school with only small jerking. Now I am only having trouble getting it into my garage because its kinda on an uphill and there is a bump right before I enter the garage and I don't want to fly in there too fast.

    But so far my main problem seems to be not giving it enough gas. But on my first day of driving I already am driving decently on normal roads...with style I might add!
