    Finally getting the wife to "settle" for a WRX

    So my wife decided she wanted a new car. We own a 2004 jetta so i told her to go ahead and see about trading it in. Needless to say she comes back and tells me she wants a GTI, i was like....UM, how about NOT!! So i agree to go look at this GTI. It was ok i guess?? My buddy had been talking about his WRX and how he would just stomp people to sleep in it. So i started to look at WRX online. I have always liked the WRX and new it was a good car. My wife didnt take to them too well. She was like "it looks like the one we have now (jetta), i was like "ok, WHATEVER" So one day out, i decide to pull a fast one and get lost to the Subaru dealer (WHOOPS). Needless to say she was all pissed off. Yada, yada, yada......you know how wifes can be. To make a long story short; by the time we were leaving she was telling me that i wasnt getting dinner if she couldnt drive the new WRX home. Once she starts she will want one of her own!! ~new WRX owner~

    so you were going to trade the jetta in on a car for her, but instead you bought a car for yourself that you wont let her drive now?

    i can think a few four letter words to describe you, but i'll hold them back

    Grats on the new purchace! I am a new owner also! Hope you and your wife have fun in your new WRX and maybe your WRX will get its own partner in the garage! WRX's get lonely when not driven so what better way then to park it next to another WRX?!?!

    congrats on the car. I too just bought an 06 WRX. I guess i am lucky in that my wife was into a new WRX , however wouldn't let me get the STI..i guess this gives me a couple of years to work on that STI, haha

    I reccomend a downpipe at least, you can get em for like 100$ and it makes a difference. After that away you go!
