Ok, to anyone saying that this kid will wreck it is full of BS, I have driven a 2002 wrx every day for 8 months since I turned 16 and haven't even got close to wrecking it; I haven't even been pulled over. Although, if you go with a wrx, in my experience, you will have to like working on it. There is alot of small stuff that will pop up that you will have to fix (unless you like getting bent over on parts and labor), regardless of maintenance; it is a 10 year old car. If you understand your limitations and the limitations of the car you will be fine, besides AWD understeer is predictable AF. But yes, get a wrx, bitches don't like bugeyes... or wagons in my case, but you will like it and then you will gain confidence swagg, and bitches dig swagg.
