    Ex Mustang owner

    Hello all-
    I bought a 2006 WRX (w/ the limited pkg.) two days ago in Blue Pearl- and am loving it! I've been eyeing these cars for several years now, and am finally the proud owner of one! My previous car was a 2001 Mustang GT- which was a completely different experience. I finally decided that I needed a more practical (yet fun) car that I could drive year round, and am I glad I did! The WRX is SO much quieter and better than my mustang- it's light years ahead of what I was driving. I can actually carry on a conversation w/ my wife now and hear what she's saying! I know people have bashed the interior too, but it's light years ahead of my old mustang. No more worrying about ending up in a ditch if the road is wet either... lol Anyway, got a great deal on it- 24,500- it was the last 06 limited pkg. on the lot- in the color I wanted... I haven't been able to wipe the smile off my face the last two days, and can't wait to get the break in over with so I can open it up a little bit....

    Sweet!

    Welcome man, leftover 06s are they way to go. Got mine for about 24 too (Black 06 limited wagon) gotta love the incentives and mine only had 12 miles on it so I knew it wasn't a demo, just a poor car everybody forgot about ...lol and now shes my baby!


    Your going to love the new wheels. Only time I drove a mustang was as a valet when I was younger, and I must say didn't car for it one bit....I could see how it has its culture....american muscle and what not but to me the clutch was unnecessarily heavy, the car was heavy...I don't know just my .02....but welcome to the club, lets see some pics!

    The mustang was fun when it was dry outside, in a straight line. But I can tell already that the WRX will be fun in all conditions around the twisties and in a straight line. Most fun car that I've ever driven! I can't believe I didn't do it sooner...

    Lets say the WRX is medium

    I say this because I've driven many cars whose clutches felt like I could literally slam my foot into the engine bay they were so soft and light:

    Mini Cooper (Non-S)
    Scion Tc
    Toyota Camry
    Mazda6
    Audi A4
    and more...but everyone knows what I'm talking about I think

    then you have the heavy clutches like the mustang and such and to me the wrx falls somewhere in between, but this mustang that I happened to drive was given me some burn in my calves and quads! ha maybe not quite but it was heavy-is this normal for mustangs?

    I'm guessing the WRX clutch is as light or lighter than the STi clutch, and I dont know if Im just used to the ACT clutch, but I went to move my buddies STi and it felt as the clutch was non existant. I've driven my fair share of standard trans, and i dont think its any heavier than my 84 Honda Accords or my 91 Nissan Pathfinders. Just my opinion, yours may vary.
