43 and a 2019 WRX owner here.

Performance-wise, I plan to do the intake/exhaust, tune, etc route. Nothing too aggressive, just the basics.

Aesthetically, I'm going to debadge, tint the head and tail lights (to match tinted windows and a dark gray body), and then add a single subtle Decepticon logo somewhere (because I'm a TF geek). Considering adding a better spoiler or wing; I am not a fan of the duckbill or the look of the back overall.

Otherwise, I immediately (before cracking 100 miles on the odo) ditched the unacceptable audio and replaced it with an Alplne R setup (speakers, amps, 12" sub in a custom box, etc). Just waiting for the Maestro kit to show up for the 2019 model, so I can install the Halo-9 head unit.

I figure -- I may as well have a little fun with the car, being that I drive it so much.

33 and a 2003 Black WRX owner.

I would like the car to be as clean and OEM as possible. The only exceptions include:
  • Aftermarket headunit
  • OEM shift knob from 2008+ WRX 5MT
  • Considering the pink rose badge
  • WeatherTech floor mats

Planning on spending some money to do paintless dent removal to remove all the dings to the car and get it ready for a good interior/exterior detail.

My dgtr drives a 2008 Outback XT with mods and a tune also.
Ok I'm having my midlife crisis, but having fun. My kids they are just spoiled.

Also have a 2002 blk WRX 4 dr tuned etc. as well.
Damn, if you're having your midlife crisis at 63, Social Security is going bankrupt.

34 y/o here: 2013 WRX hatchback built engine, etc..how could I NOT love it? I came from a 2 door, rwd car. I drive a lot for work, it makes visiting any client fun just for the drive there haha. I love to bike (downhill mtb, road, bmx)...haven't even needed to install a roof rack because there is enough space. I don't care how old I am, it's a PERFECT fit for me

39 and have a '15 WRX that's stage2 with some other lil' bits here n' there. Wanted a WRX since I saw my first bugeye in 2002.

Owned an '04 350z and a '12 Cooper S prior to this car. Miss the Z sometimes, but that Mini ***** the bed and had a rash of problems about 2yrs into owning. Sold it and bought the WRX - never looked back.

Bought our 2015 STI for my 40 year old wife. It has been very hard to get her to give it up for something newer!

There's an elderly lady that lives near me that has a sweet 2011ish purple STI. She's got to be in her late 60s but rips around in that thing.
Got 2019 wrx. Added so much air in it gobbles when turbo unspools

47 and have a 1997 WRX track car and a 2001 STi. Both 500 bhp and being rebuilt for 700bhp. Both stand out in their own way

Daily is a tangerine scream (orange) Ford Focus ST diesel. It stands out.

Age is just a number. Gonna be dead one day, so why be conservative.

Decided to take my 2005 WRX sedan off the road now. Iíll cover it and store it for the future. Still runs fine with its Cobb stage 2 setup and 106k miles. Clean body too, WRB color of course!

Loving the smooth quiet ride of the orange 2019 limited Crosstrek and all its tech.

Starting from the age of 17 till now I have owned:

2003 WRX
2005 STI
2017 CROSSTREK
and just picked up another 2005 STI

also, about to trade in the Crosstrek for a 2020 Outback for the wife.

I have owned other performance cars including 3 different Camaros. But since we had our daughter I sold my ZL1 picked up a ZR2 colorado truck and picked up a 2005 STI complete project car. No matter what I did, I couldn't get away from the feeling I had when driving my 2005 STi. This coming from a previous owner of a 650whp 2013 ZL1 Camaro. That car out performed my old STi in every way... But I just never built a connection to it. Hence while I am back... haha

Default Camaro: not in winter

I bet the Camaro did not outperform in winter weather: snow/ice. There is a reason that Subaru is one of the most popular vehicles in mountainous winter states like Vermont and Colorado. I live in Texas now, but when I lived out west I put studded snow tires on my WRX and drove past so many cars spun out or off the road I would lose count. Once I drove from Seattle to Olympia on Interstate 5. That's about 60 miles. I counted 165 cars off the road, a few upside down. Not a single one was a Subaru. The road was sketchy so I just cruised through the wreckage at 45 mph.

well of course not. But I didn't really drive my STi or the Camaro in the snow either because I always had a 4x4 truck. I didn't want to raise my suspension, swap a rim and tire setup, and then worry about road salt eating my car. I took those couple months to work on the car in my garage. But I get your point. driving a WRX all season is very fun.
