Here's my first post on this forum. I have been eyeing the WRX's ever since the '02 came out. I really don't know too much about them yet, except that I like the looks and they are a blast to drive. I currently have a 1991 MR2 turbo and a 1989 Nissan Stanza.
I guess I kinda lied in the subject - I'm not gonna get rid of my MR2 for anything, but I want a WRX also. I'm hoping to replace my Stanza (which is my daily driver/beater with something newer, nicer and more fun) Since the MR2 is pretty impractical, I want my second car to have 4 doors, a back seat, and a big trunk. I also like the appeal of AWD. It *sounds* safer...is it really? I know the WRX sticks to the road like a fly on flypaper.
I personally like the styling of the 02/03 WRX's better than the newest ones. I have always wanted silver, and prices are getting to where I can afford one now. I still need to find out how it will affect my insurance, but I can see myself getting a WRX soon. I live in Eugene, OR and wouldn't mind going a few hundred miles for a car that is right. It seems like people on this board are typically against buying a modded WRX because the history is unknown and it could have been thrashed on. I can understand that. So this means that I'm either looking for one that is not modded, or lightly modded. What would be the best is if I could find one from a member of this board/club since I know then it would have been well taken of.
Well, that's all for now. I'm glad to find a bunch of people that love cars as much as I do! I will be posting on this forum from now on and hope to find the perfect WRX sometime in the not-so-far-off future. Oh, and in case anyone wants to see the MR2, it's here:
