    Hey guys n gals. Finally sold the crap machine (srt-4) Got an 06 charcoal WRX with 3 miles on it! This car feels soo much better than the neon. Quicker, electronic windows, awd, i could go on for hours. Just wanting to say hello. Im a military guy stationed in pensacola. Be seeing you.

    Heres pics of old and new. The neon had turboback, intake, s2, and a huge fmic. it was at about 300hp 310tq


    Me and my flight suit.






    I love my interior!

    Congrats on the new Subaru! I amdit too that I used to have a Nissan, and my new WRX is the best car far and away that I have EVER driven. How do you like yours so far?

    Wow, you really got hated on by those SRT guys. . . .



    They're probably just mad because they drive Neons.

    Seriously, welcome to the WRX. You made a good choice

    Oh, and I read your thread on the SRT4 forums. If I had a car that gave me that much trouble, I would be upset too. Subarus from what I know of them from my family who has one and others are not only reliable but excellent on safety and performance.

    The SRT4 might be fast, but they still WERE neons. A light car plus a turbo should go fast. I might be wrong, but I don't see them offering much else. Besides, the new 2006 WRXs 0-60 times from what I have read are around 5.70 for a manual, 6.55 for the automatics, STOCK. That plus AWD, safety, reliability and performance and comfort, I would and did choose Subaru.

    I just read the whole thread on the SRT forum. I don't think a single person said anything good about the WRX.

    One word wow, how come all other turbo car lovers that are not Subaru's or Evo owners (ie srt, cobaltss, ) think there small cars are the best, yes you do get bang for your buck but you also get what you paid for, i personally came to Subaru not only cuz it can own almost any car off the line but becuase it is reliable if mod it right and it is soo safe Goodbye SRT-4 Hello very friendly WRX members

    It's sad when car enthusiasts cannot appreciate car brands besides their own. Do people even use SRT-4's on the track or for auto-x? It seems they are just highway beasts.

    Congrats on getting the wrx. You'll be happy not having to fix your car all the time.
