I'm 44 and got my 19 STI about six months ago. Also my first Subie. Wish I had gotten one earlier.

48, 2017 WRX. Just finished a few more mods, so now full bolt-ons except for header and around 313whp/339wtq (virtual dyno). I'd like to do the header too, but it is a pain in the azz mod to do as far as work. And eventually I'll try to go built block with upgraded turbo.

Wife isn't into cars, but she knows they are one of my passions, so lets me play a little. I have RCE Yellows sitting in a box in the garage and just waiting for the time to put them on.

Time is difficult to find though because we have a baby ...... Yup. I've got 4 kids. 19, 16, 13, and ......... 6-months. First three were from my first wife who passed away in 2011. Got re-married in 2012, and we didn't think my current wife could conceive (according to a few different docs). Surprise, surprise! She got pregnant last year and delivered in October. And she's 44 now. (And I'm snipped so it won't happen again!)

So now I'm an old/new dad with a baby seat in the back of my modded WRX.

You aren't welcome here for another year

Come back when you've purchased the redesign and are 31!

31 year old with a WRX here. I'm not planning on getting rid of it. Ever. Girlfriend (soon to be wife) of 4 years loves it and agrees with me on the not getting rid of it part. It's practical and fun!

I am 31 and I currently drive a 2017 STI. I have swift r lowering springs being shipped and I plan on installing a front lip, skirts and rear spats. I do not have immediate plans to do anything in the performance department because this car is my daily so I want to keep it as safe as possible until I get something to DD.

I've heard the equipment women display after breast augmentation called 'bolt on'.

I bolted on all kinds of suspension and engine modifications on several of my WRXs. From looking at the vendor forums there is an almost limitless amount of stuff you can 'bolt on' to modify on these cars.

What is full 'bolt on' regarding a WRX?

I bought my first Subaru brand new in 1981 - a 2wd Legacy wagon. Within 4 months it was totaled by an idiot (without insurance) who turned right in front of me on a 55mph highway. The ambulance guys thought they would find a corpse in my car, but the Subi safety design saved me. The spare tire used to be under the hood above the engine, just to help absorb crash energy. I was sore for several months but not one broken bone.

On our sixth Subie now - these are some of the best cars for the money hands down.

36 with a 2019 STi. I did have a '15 WRX that I traded in for an automatic '17 WRX due to some knee issues I had at the time. Had another car for a while then got the STi a few months back and could not be happier!

I'm 33 and just picked up a 2019 STi.

I had a 2004 WRX and sold it 7 years ago when it started giving me trouble that I couldn't afford to repair at the time after a move from FL to DC. During that time I haven't had a car but just commuted.

I started looking at cars months ago and was looking at all kinds of cars but I missed my WRX so much I had to come back. It was my dream car and to get one brand new has made me happier than ever!

I'm 46 and just picked up my 2019 WRX Limited. I was 39 when I purchased my 2012 WRX Premium, but I had to get rid of it along the way due to being misdiagnosed with RA in my knees and being told I would never drive a manual again, much less squat or perform any other leg exercises.

Hating my 2013 GTI managed to get me into serious exercising, and caused me to come back to a WRX. Don't get me wrong, when it had traction, my Unitronic Stage 2 DSG equipped GTI was fast as hell, but it never felt as fast as it was from the driver's seat. Truthfully, I felt the car was boring and sterile to drive. It as if the Germans have lost their concept of "fun" somewhere along the way.

Unfortunately between 60,200 and 66,000 miles I went through two water pumps, a radiator, a serpentine belt popping, and an intake manifold due to the runner flap issue. I performed the carbon cleaning when I changed the first water pump because the valves were nasty at 60,200 miles. Keep in mind, that car was WELL maintained, but maintenance meant nothing with the problems common to the MK6 platform.

Thanks for this story, this is my first Subaru and I'm in love. I can't believe it took 20+ years of driving to actually test drive one.

Took some of us a lot longer than that . . .
