I am 21 now and bought my first 2006 Sti when I was 20. I just put my down payment on the 2013 Sti.
I am in an apprenticeship so my school is paid for so that makes it easier.
But the car payment is easy to swallow, but my insurance suck if you have a good driving recorded it's not to bad though
I pay about 600 a month on insurance and car payment
