News Why You Don't Buy a 17yr Old A New STI (driver lived)

Call me crazy but I have no idea what this kids parents were thinking. Saw this on the news yesterday learned this am, that he was driving an impreza.
You know I work for a living and can afford a wrx or sti, when I got my first car I bought a beater mazda that lasted me 6 years, why parents buy their kids new cars is beyond me.


Four teens killed in horrific car crash on Long Island; teen at wheel only had learner's permit

Joseph Beer lost control of the 2012 Subaru Impreza that friends said his parents just bought for him after he “failed to negotiate a curve,” State Police officials said. The car, which Beer had been given for graduating early from Richmond Hill High School, split in two — and tossed the teens out like rag dolls.

Do 2012s still come with RE-92s? If so, I blame them.

It's interesting the dichotomy between OT and every other forum on here. This was posted in Tri-State and General, I think, and I don't recall seeing any jokes there. OT will find humor in the holocaust. Love it!
