Drove the gen coupe again and decided that "luxurious" interior was going to feel cheap in a year or so. Also took into consideration that the 13' gen coupe 2.0t has a brand new engine/set up and I don't know how reliable it will be, especially after mods.

I did bring them 1k below invoice on the Gen coupe but they could only offer me 23.5k for my 13' Base WRX...

Purchased an Accessport used on here for $450 and called it a day.

Geez 23.5k sounds high. They're only ~$25k and most times they really low ball you if it's that new of a vehicle. I would have guessed ~$22k.

if you paid taxes on that vehicle and trade it for another you can roll those into the next deal to offset the tax liability for the new car. at least you can do that here

registration...not fully, but you can usually transfer tags between vehicles of the same ilk which helps greatly.

OP, good for you. whatever makes you happy. while posting about it on here will surely be a flame fest, regardless, do what you want and have fun. we aren't here forever, you know?

i had a brand new STI for a few months and it just wasn't for me after living with it for that span. i liked the idea of the STI (AWD, turbo, hatch) but didn't like the poor quality for the dollars.

I don't buy many cars so I forgot about the trade-in offset.

What did you buy after the STI?

a C 63.

i will admit that hatches and wagons are generally my favorite body styles. i like the utility of the sedan (vs. a coupe) but it would have been awesome if they brought the estate (wagon) to the US

Really think some people have malfunctioning hill-assist. Been driving manuals for 15 years, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, and the occasional stingy tractor trailer and delivery truck. The hill-assist in my car has never caused me to stall. I launch fine on hills, and the only difference I notice is that the car simply doesn't roll back on inclines. It stuck for a moment once or twice when i first bought the car, but nothing since. Also my clutch feels just fine...

my sister stalled all the time driving my car with hill assist, while i had no problem. She's not applying enough gas and when she notices the car jolt from the hillassist shutting off, she inadvertently lets off the gas. *shrugg*

yea ive also always driven manual, and i just cant see the hill assist bother anyone that knows how to drive a manual well. Its just an asset to have incase some douche in a giant truck gets right up on ur rear. Even though i barely ever roll back without, you never know when ur foot might slip...

If they made the Genesis look like this... I could look past the Hyundai name plate and jump ship.

Here is a thought, why put it on the car in the first place?!?!? I bought this car because it had a manual, hill-assist should have been an add-on option for people who need a nanny device to drive, the rest of us have been driving all our lives without a need for it. Why teach people the bad habit of relying on a nanny device to save them on hills? For those people who need it, I say buy an automatic, simple solution.

Nothing wrong with assist hill, driving around in Seattle there are several occasions where I learned to like hill assist.

But at the very least they could have included the option of disabling it.
