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
