36 - ordered a WRX yesterday. Wife, 2 kids, 2 dogs and mortgage. My job allows me to expand from bikes (2008 HD Night Train and 2007 Triumph Daytona 675 (track)). I need a bigger garage.

I'm 25. Just purchased my first subie a 2011WRB WRX sedan and plan on keeping it for a very ling time Completely stock DD that I cart my 5 month old around in. I also have a 00 mustang GT vert (weekend car), and my wife has a 07 Honda CRV. My 67 y/o father in law drives a 95 supra that he bought brand new in 1995.

I have a professional career and when I was thinking about buying a car I had to decide if I wanted a "professional" looking car. (my one boss drive a brand new Audi A8 and the other drives a brand new Jaguar XF). I test drove some BMWs, Audis, and Cadillacs. I knew I wanted a AWD car. I always liked Subies but never drive one. So I test drove a WRX and was hooked. Bought it right away. My clients like to talk to me about it. It's a good conversation starter. So is there a definition of a "professional" car?

I'm 34, single dad of 3 and 4 yr olds, and I'm toting them around in a 2011 5 dr wrx . The most useful car for me in a long time.

42 here. I do understand that there are a lot of younger people who drive a wrx or sti and sometimes I feel like an "old timer" . I have simply wanted my sti since 2004 when I first noticed a coworker with one. When I purchased my 02 wrx in 2007 I instantly fell in love. It also helped that I had a 98 v8 mustang before that and every time I would hear about a snow storm coming through I would get a chill up my spine. Adding to that when I almost got t-boned in a snow storm with my daughter in the car, an AWD car became a new quest. When I found out the sti was the wrx "on steroids",(please forgive me for that cliche') I knew I had to have one. I don't have any mods yet as I bought it from a dealership and it still has a considerable warranty remaining on it. I'm not sure which mods I can install and not have Subaru say "were not gonna pay to fix that" if something fails. I've been searching to alleviate this issue and haven't found any concrete answers. Any help from those more knowledgeable than me is greatly appreciated.

Do you guys feel that you are being stigmatized by your neighbors, co-workers for owning WRX? Or this thread/discussion is just because majority here on these boards are in their twenties?

+20. I couldn't care less what anyone thinks. I'm driving a car I want to drive and none of these people are stepping forward to put a dime into keeping it up and paying for it. I dont make purchases based on the approval of some person whom I barely talk to.

33 divorced, with a 4 year old son who loves the racecar. Traded my 1st WRX back in 05 for my first STI and thought it would be a good idea to trade for a TriBeca. Miss that car everyday! Bought my 08 WRX 9 moths ago took it to stage 2, springs, short shifter, grids. I got the WRX for the payment alone. I'd rather have the cash to mod when I choose than pay extra in payments and insurance for an STI. I bought It for 9k cheaper than the cheapest STI

Over 40 years young.

Had my '05 STi for 8.5 years, and it doesn't feel old at all.

I'm 34, married and planning on having kids real soon. I just bought my first WRX a few months ago. Always been a fan of the WRX/STi but always found an excuse not to get one. This time I decided to go for it. Glad I did, however, I am finding that I am obsessing over things I want to do to the car even though the money isn't there. So far all I did was tint and clear bra.

It's funny that I came across this topic. I was talking to my brother about the possibility of me purchasing either an E55 AMG or a STi and his first words were that the AMG is an adults car and the STi is a young kids car. Reading this topic definately solidified my decision in looking for a AW 05 STi.

I know you don't understand but most likely, when your older, you will not think working 55+ hours a week to have a nice car is so wise. You also may stop saying things like suck a dick to try and prove yourself, maybe.

I never used to see WRX's around here, but now there are several and they're all driven by young kids. Two are former students of mine. I can't ever see owning one again because they seem like juvenile cars to me now. I still think they're great vehicles though.
