Post The best thing about my WRX

besides 3000-7000 rpm..

Getting the wrx was my last link to being financially dependent on my parents. I was driving 1 of their cars throughout college. They never bought me a car.. the wrx is all mine, with my own money. unfortunately my parents DID pay for my college tuition.. so instead of mods i must pay them back...

Hey HKBeef!

I'm in the same position. I saved up and paid my own way for my WRX. Unfortunately, I can't go out and get the mods I want cuz of rent, educational loans and money for my parents. All I've down so far is the relatively low cost stuff, like my PIAA bulbs($100), K&N air filter($40) and a momo shift knob($70).

Sweet! My WRX is the first car I bought "new". Sure that means I'm eating it in depreciation (as with all new cars). But for the first time I have a car that I picked out because I wanted it, not strictly because of financial considerations, and I have a car that I'm completely enthusiastic about.

Sure as hell I want to do some mods. But, as my buddy says, at this stage I'll see more improvements in the car if I tweak the nut behind the wheel. So I'm gonna tear up these RE92's and decide what to add in a couple of months.

Ditto here. My parents bought my last car (though I paid for a good bit of it afterwards), and the WRX is the first car I'm paying for solely on my own. What's more, the financing on the WRX is the first thing on my credit report since I just turned 18 in December.

hey me too! I've been driving my parent's 82 corolla throughout college (god I love that car too, very well kept, low miles) and the wrx is officially my first car. I'm gonna pay it off in less than 2 years even though I financed it for 5! Don't want too much debt, cuz a house is next Great to be financially independent, isn't it

And seeing how this is my first manual car (I did learn before by driving my dad's occasionally) I'll be like gpxl and try to get the most out of the stock car first. Besides, money goes to car payment first.

Well, my parents did pay for my RS, but they didn't have to pay a penny for my college education, so I think they're still making out good.

It only took me three years to pay off my family for college, but I have 20 more years to the bank on the med school loans

Same boat here I saved up my money and the WRX is my first "new" car that I have bought on my own! Did buy a 96 GSR last year but sold it for the REX!! I feel your pain Jackblock, rent, student loans, and various Bills, Bills, Bills, will definately slow down the mods process! Sucks because there is so much stuff you can do to the REX! Well I guess I could just max out my credit card and worry about it later, ahh maybe not!! Momo shift knob, nice set of seat belt pads, and a spoiler is on the way, that all I've done so far!

Scholarships are paying for my tuition, I'm working to pay for rent, food, my RS, its insurance and its mods. Sometime after I graduate next year I plan on getting a WRX (STi if it is available then) and then making my RS into a monster as well!

iT's paid for in full. Traded-in a `96 RAV4, and plopped down $14,500. It's the 1st time I've never had to finance.
...also the 6 CD changer is nice for those long trips. The power for passing & the "twisties" is ideal.
