    05 Black Wagon

    Hello ClubWRX!

    Okay so after years of lusting and wishing and hoping for it, and of course being really good this year, I finally went out and picked up a 2005 Black Wagon! As I sat in those great “lock you in your place” seats and looked out the windshield over the “bow down to me” hood scoop, I knew this would be the one!

    It is so nice to join the family of cars as beautiful as the WRX! I must say that stepping out of an 89 Honda Accord DX and into an 05 WRX.... Hold on... wait a minute... I can actually pass other cars now?!?!?! Hills are no problem and the air conditioning doesn't affect the performance…. SWEET!

    1st week down, a lifetime of fun ahead!
    While it is nice to be important, it is more important to be nice with a WRX!

    Congrats, sometimes I wonder if I should have gotten the wagon myself, for the sleeper effect

    I got it at the dealership in Van Nuys, CA.
    I was luck to get it for just over invoice! Of course with financing and taxes and all that jazz, it was $4000 more than invoice. Just be ready for that when you go out an pick one up.

    I still can't believe that the dealer took my honda! I mean I was the second owner, but still I had 316k and change on that bad boy! Never again could I drive a car that isn't a suby!
    I have faith scootigee... it will happen!
