Just be grateful.
Sorry if I seem rude, but these kinds of posts get me pissed when a person gets deffense and picky about a car they aren't even buying themselves.

Um...can we lay off the original poster here please? He just asked a few simple questions and some folks are bombing him here. I don't see anywhere where he is defensive about the car or picky for that matter. If some folks have the opportunity to get this type of car, regardless of the age, more power to them. It comes across as jealosy to pick him apart because of it.
Granted, he got defensive about that fact that he is 18 and has this opportunity, but since when is being young against the law to buy or be given a car? C'mon folks...lets lighten up a bit here. He just wanted to know if WE think HE will be satisfied with the power of a WRX. Of course we can't know if he will be, but offering constructive comments about the car in comparison to others is the right way to go. Comments about his age are not. Please refrain from making it personal. Like the sign says "Can't we all just get along?"

Crap and me being 18 and I had to work for my car. But I do have a driving background under my belt (junior drags, go karts, beater cars,autocross,driving school, and what not) Just be careful we see alot of people my age and yours go because of stupid reasons hell one kid drove his wrx through a house thats how bad it can get. I think you will enjoy the power but maybe you should start out with a 2.5rs and work your way up if you never had a turbo/fast car before not saying the wrx is hell on wheels but it does have power you need to learn how to handle. Goodluck with your purchase.

You will be extremely happy with the WRX... I just got mine 1 month ago and am now starting to enjoy it fully, but then again I was driving a '97 Accord before the WRX.

Atif- Im 19 yrs old...and despite what people will tell you yes 16-21+ yr old drivers can be good. Theres a lot more worse drivers out there than better. I had a 2002 Focus ZX3 for a 1st car....got it when i was 16. Tuned it out a bunch and really learned how to drive on that. I have an 05 WRX now, and am 19 and i can tell you that its plenty fun. Plenty of performance and plenty of power to get you in trouble. Theres always room to mod it and make it faster. I can tell you...youll be happy.
saying someone cant handle a car because of their age is pretty ignorant. Ive got more track time in a Z06 and SVT lightning (theyre in teh family) than most. Expierience...not age
Im 20 and finally bought my WRX and im loving it ofcoarse im coming from a 94 ford probe. but still my father owns a 2002 vette and i drive it around when im around. and i still love hopping into my wrx after driving the vette. different driving experience but both are fun nonetheless. i agree about not everyone under 21 sucks. some people it comes more natural than to others but experience is a big key. too bad the insurance companies beleive we all suck until 21 though.
If my dad decides to buy me the STi (hes being very vague), should I take the offer? I want to go to track days and stuff to learn my limits on the STi. Whre can I learn about things like skid control or accident avoidance?
i just replied to your private message...has a link in there that might help. If not...tell me and ill dig up some more stuffOriginally Posted by Atif Farooqi
OKay enough of the bull ****. i am 16 and i just got my 02 wrx and i dont even have my license yet. the car DOES have lots of power. but nothing a starter cant handle. Buy the regular wrx. i believe its more worth then the sti. but the sti IS nicer because of the new design. but i am more then happy with the wrx. its a very fast and reliable car. i am a newbie but believe me you wont be dissapointed with the rex. And yes i can drive it very well. its just a matter if your are a natrual good driver, or if you are a crappy driver period.

02 wrb wrx stock turbo fmic 26 psi (it can be done)
Im sure youre all right that i wont be disappointed but i dont want to be like if this is the wrx imagine the STi and then be dissatisfied but thats just something i have to work out in my own head.
well with the sti you will be dissatisfied with the price. why dont you just buy a used porsche if your going to spend 30 grand

true very true. why not just get a used C5...Originally Posted by killthelights14
Ive decided to get a used WRX 04 instead of an STi. I could probably put $2000 worth of mods in and gfet it up to par w/ amd STi. It really is easier on the pockets also. Its a better balance to get a WRX b/c it for a beginner its a lower amt of a lot of power, you know what i mean? Im sure Ill be happy with it, if not il force myslef to be happy.
