Bought a Ď17 STI last year at 40. Always wanted a Subi, just took a while to get around to it. Stage 1+ at the moment, but trying to figure out the path I want to take with her. Someone here mentioned itís like working with a blank slate and you can turn it into whatever you want. I couldnít agree more!

53 here and recently bought a 16 w/9k and I love this car. I really enjoy driving this car (save for the clutch during takeoff). Seems to me you get an awful lot of power and handling capabilities for your 30k.....ish.
Now if spring would hurry up and get here so's I can put the summer tires back on

I started out with a Subaru, my first car was a 2001 NA 2.5RS which I adored. When I got my first job out of college I got my first and only WRX. I later traded it in for a 2005 Evo RS.

As I got to my late 20's I kind of got bored with 4 banger Turbos. I wanted to make big power without having to do all kinds of crazy voodoo to support the extra power.
So I kept the Evo for autocross and bought a 2018 Mustang GT. I plan on making 600-650 WHP just by slapping on a super charger.

I'm turning 30 in 2 weeks.... and I bought a 2018 WRX as a present to myself...

I'm going to mod it, but I'm going to keep the scope of my mods w/in warranty.... I see no point in throwing that out the window

I'm unsure about aftermarket wheels... I want to keep it "adult looking" but at the same time, have subtle mods to make it my own

I'm 35 years old and own a 2018 WRX premium. Wish I owned one sooner now I know what I was missing out on. Great car. Have friends with older WRX s and wish it had that same sound but it's all good

Just shy of 50 here .......
Had a 02 WRX wagon, and a 05 STi.

Current ride is a stock/original 2004 STi (including the still original radio delete) in PSM .Never modded/tuned/abused.

I hear it all the time ......... "aren't you too old to be driving a car with a hood scoop and a wing like that" , "Thats a kids car" ........
I just tell them its an all original collectors car, and I enjoy driving it once in a while (not my daily) . If I really don't like their comment , I will ask them if they want to take it for a spin . After they get all big eyed, smile, and start drooling , I just tell them they are too old !


I may have to part with it soon though ........I have a son who is turning 16 , and I dont think my insurance co. will be wanting to see it on my policy, and will do so by upping my premiums considerably .

Oh...... here is my stock/original/unmodded 04 Sti ,

^ this guy...

Why is it that so many in here leave them stock? You're really missing out on all the fun. If you think stock is blast then an STi at 400+ whp and a properly done suspension setup will rock your world.

Stock is ok too ....... keeps it reliable , and very street-able . Just keeping her as she was from the factory as much as possible ...... something to be said for that too ehh ? Lots of modded WRX/Sti's out there .......very few stock ones left .
Its not that I dont have the ability , the last "toy" I put together was a VF Supercharged BMW 330i . That was a RWD beast !

I agree with your thought process... seeing a stock WRX / STI is like seeing a unicorn (ESPECIALLY one that's more than 5 years old)

I am going to mod mine lightly (nothing to void the warranty) because I want to keep the reliability and fuel econonmy

maybe eventually, I'll pick up a toy / unicorn

46 and 11/12’s. Just picked up a 2018 WRX Premium tonight, 6 miles on the odometer. First new car I’ve ever bought. My 2006 WRX Wagon blew up after 170K last Monday. I put 160K on it. VF43, Koni’s, Whiteline this and that. Lovvvvved that car. Did the math on a rebuild and started looking at used VW R’s and Caymans. Test drove a new WRX and was like, what the hell, why not. Picked up the new car tonight and Drove it with my hound in the passenger seat and love it. RIP Trixie. These new cars are fancy. AC works, defroster! ...turns cleaner, doesn’t rumble as much, but that’s okay. USB connectors, Bluetooth...it’s like Subaru is from the future now. Love this thing stock...will leave it that way for a couple years...I think...my wife hopes so.

Will be 40 in June....just picked up a new 2018 WRX Base 6MT this week.

Also have modded S550 Mustang (2016 GT PP set up for track days) and a tube-frame sports racer with Hayabusa motor.

Never quite saw myself as a Subie guy, but was looking for something cheap, reliable, fun, MT, a back seat for the kids, and can handle snow. And there were no other options!
