Screw the people that don't think subie's are for older folks.


35 checking in - love my 2016 WRX. Best car I've ever owned.


Nothing major as far as mods. Interior - Stage 1 upgrades (Cobb tune, cold air intake). For exterior, looking to get an STI trunk swap, maybe some wider wheels (18" vs 17") and maybe plasti-dip it a different color (I've always had an itch to do blood orange).

34 and just picked up my first WRX. Wife 30 has had a 12 Impreza Sport and current DD is a 17 Forester XT. I've also had an 04 FXT.

Current car is bone stock but that wont last. Probably keep it simple, some cosmetic mods wheels and a pro tune

Got a 2019 WRX at age 57. First Subie, and best car, I've ever owned. It's mostly stock, except for some lighting and cosmetic upgrades.

I am 51 and just picked up a 2020 WRX Premium a few months back. It's stock other than Rally Armor flaps and LED lighting and it will most likely stay that way. This is the 4th Subie I have owned and will be keeping it for a long time.

Default How many here are 30+yr/old and have a wrx?

Iím 38, but I have an Evo X, which is pretty much the same type of thing Iíd say. Very heavily modified, itís probably easier to list the mods I havenít done tbh 530 AWHP (summer) on CBRDs (York PA) Mustang dyno, and 540 AWHP (winter) on Buschurís Mustang dyno.
Actually exterior mods I have almost nothing. I have Rexpeed carbon fiber vents where the fog lights used to be. Thereís an oil cooler on one side sand if you have an MR a trans cooker on the other, I have a GSR. Wanted to open up air flow to the oil cooler. Well, that and Enkei RPF1 rims and Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires

I now own, at age 64, a 5-spd '98 JDM Impreza STi GF8... and damn this car pulls hard.

With over 40 years separating the ownership of these two vehicles, it's difficult to say for sure which car is/was quicker... but if pressed I'd have to say it was the Chevelle. Its engine was an absolute unrefined beast.

But hey, I'm certainly enjoying the Subie!

38 here. 2017 STi with quite a bit of mods being bolted on as we speak. I went stage 2 at 6k miles and once this round of mods is complete I should be around 380-400whp. Hopefully I'll get it back tomorrow!

Early 30's. I was shopping for a Camaro SS but decided that it would've been ridiculous driving that car in the winter. Yes you can do it, but then you just look like someone who couldn't afford to garage their muscle car for the winter.

I also ski and the Camaro would've sucked driving in the mountains. Again, do-able with snow tires, but even those reach their limits once you get enough snow on the roads and you need to climb hills.

So with winter around the corner, I began looking for a ~30k fun daily driver that would be able to handle snow-covered mountainous roads.

WRX was priced right, has a great AWD system, a manual transmission, and comes with a good amount of amenities for under 30k. I went with the Premium and got a few grand off the 32k sticker. A base model (LT1) Camaro with the V8 engine was 34k after rebates and dickering, and they only had one available. That car sold, and there weren't any other ones available within a 250 mile radius. The next cheapest "base" V8 Camaro was pushing 40k. No thanks, GM.

I've always liked the WRX's but was never really a fan. I'm a GM guy, but after being burned once by that company (long story, but the dealer crashed my car while it was in service, half-assed the repairs, and left me with the remainder of the repair bills) I decided to try a different brand this time around.

The only other car I found that was even close was the Golf R. And it was 10k more than the WRX. There's the auto-only A3 quattro, but again, much more expensive and no manual gearbox.

I do not regret buying the car. Another plus is the above average resale value, so when the time comes to sell, the WRX holds its value really well. It still loses value, just not as fast as other cars. My last daily was a Cobalt SS. You don't want to know how fast that car lost it's value after the ignition switch recall.

I'm on my seventh Subaru - first one was an '81 Legacy wagon. Even with just front wheel drive it was a great car. I've driven these cars a lot in the snow as I am a hard-core skier. If you want ultimate traction get some ugly steel rims and mount snow tires on them and drive that in winter. Blizzak, Nexen, Cooper, Falken - whatever. If you can get studs all the better. I could bore you for a long time with stories of all the stuck/spun out American macho SUVs and Toyota trucks I have passed while driving in ice and snow in the Subies. The only drawback I have seen is the Subies clearance in deep snow. These are passenger cars, not snow plows. IMHO chains are so unnecessary on a Subaru with good snow tires.
