    Don't take what people are saying to negativly. They just dont want to see you wrap it arround a pole.

    Honestly ask your self why you really want the WRX. If it's to show off then thats the wrong reason.

    If I we're you i'd pickup a new Impreza 2.5i. You get your AWD plus it's prety peppy. Drive it for a couple years and gain some real world driving experience. Then trade up to a WRX or STi.

    But get what ever you want. This is just my .02

    I couldn't even get through the first page of this thread because it is so rediculous IMO.

    I hate when other people try to discourage someone into not getting a car they want just because they are "not experienced". Furthermore why suggest to someone to get a 2.5rs when they want an STi.?

    Most any car can get to 100mph whether it is a corolla or a STi. If someone irresponsible enough they will kill themselved in any car.

    More power to the OP.

    It does seem to me that the initial responses were a bit strong even if well intentioned. When I was in high school we all drove V8 rear wheel drive cars in the snow. I don't remember anyone having a ridiculous wreck, although we bent some rims and others a quarter or two. Driving any car is risky, and you have to be careful no matter what. If I was 16 and could convince my parents to but me a WRX, I wouldn't listen to anyone trying to tell me to get something less. Would you?

    You're right, if I was 16 and in this situation, I probably woudn't listen either. The point is, that most of us that are simply trying to caution him are no longer 16, some of us are actually twice that age and more, and are only speaking with somewhat of a hind-sight, which, as the saying goes, is 20/20. The fact is that while you can go 100mph in nearly any car you are more likely to do so in a sporty car because it's easier to do so. Being that it is a WRX only makes it a bit worse because it is a more confidence inspiring car, which could be a bad thing for an individual with limited driving experience to begin with.

    His parents WILL buy him the car, he WILL "eventually" mod it, he WILL learn how to drive it, he MAY end up respecting it, and hopefully he WILL NOT hurt himself or others in the process.

    Good luck to the OP in any case.

    I am also 2.5x his age. The thing is, he has been called irresponsible, he has been told that we assume he is an idiot until proven otherwise, and one poster hopes he hits a pole. Welcome to the club!

    yes this is refered to me, i'm sorry but when I give advice and try to help someone and then it's thrown back in my face, it angers me..I guess I shouldn't of given him advice then..but i'm a person that tries to help people. maybe next time he can have some manners and be more polite.

    maybe next time you should put together an intelligent thought rather than just making assumptions. Whether or not I actually pay for my car means nothing when it comes to how i take care of it. i may be well off but i'm not some spoiled prick who doesnt appreciate what i have.


    i hope YOU smoke the pole

    You're alright. I guess some of us might just be overly concerned. Welcome to the club and learn as much as you can. Just be glad you didn't ask a BOV question.
