Sometimes? Doesn't count. If it was his, then I would be intrigued. The title of this thread is "...30+yr/old and have a wrx"

Ah, the MR2. Love that car. Just replaced my third Mk2 with the WRX. Thought I'd miss it more, but the WRX is doing a great job of making me not regret it.

I'm just wondering because this will dictate how I build my car when I pay it off. Im currently 28 and like the racer look, but not sure if it would look cool when im above 30, (ex. too boy racer)
Hey, I'm 60 yrs old, have a SWP 2010 WRX HB with tint, SPT goodies. Will be ordering RCE springs/Bilsteins to improve the suspension and get a subtle drop. I buy cars that are fun to drive...pure and simple. No Buicks for this old dog

Agreed,
Mines like yours; SPT stuff, tint, 2004 STI BBS, just SSM instead of SWP.
Older guys like us can usually afford the parts easier than the youngsters.
A lot of guys posting in this thread are 30 somethings. That's not old.

35 years old and have owned my 09 WRX for a little over a year now.

I had all these plans of modding it- Stage2, suspension, wheels/tires, etc.

...All I ended up doing was Stage1. I have no desire to do any other mods. The car is ridiculous just the way it is and I rather have a full warranty (I commute to work in this car and can't afford any problems).

A couple of days ago, my steering wheel would start shaking when braking at any speed over 50mph. I went to the dealer for an oil change and they must've test drove it and noticed it, because they replaced my front rotors and pads and didn't ask me 1 single question.

I don't think I've ever owned a car and not voided the warranty on it. It feels good to have one.

Come on, just having some fun! But honestly, my dad would love the WRX that I will be picking up in the next few weeks...he used to do rally races back in Japan when he was my age.

And he used to drive a late 80's GL Turbo 4WD...does that count?

I barely remember that car, but I remember it being awesome.

I'm 32 and bought my dad's WRX off of him this year for a DD/beater. He's 63 and has been driving it since he originally got it in 2001. My mom always made fun of him for driving a "high schooler"'s car (especially with the mods he put on it).

Also have a Murtaya coming...but I was a bit younger than 32 when I officially "bought" it...

My WRX was a mid-life crisis car because I couldn't afford a 'Vette and was too scared to buy a Harley

I bought my '09 WRX a month before I turned 30. That was almost a year and half ago. No exterior mods so far, though I plan on adding some Rally Armor mud flaps before winter gets here. Car was completely stock for over a year, but I recently added a Perrin stage 2 power package. Other than that, no other mods.

Judging from the wheels, that's an entire STI swap, so, it has a real transmission in it.

Having a real trans was the biggest motivator - Need at least 1 manual in the family so the kids can learn how people drove cars before computers did it for them

Thats really sweet...


I picked up my '04 STi for my 30th Birthday, and will be picking up my '11 STi for my 37th.... Always fun to start a new project, even as the wife rolls he eyes. The kids have their toys and I have mine... ;-)
