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
wheel lock set (can't be too careful I guess)
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.
