I'm 32 and currently in a Golf 7R, but will be moving to an 18" FA20 WRX - from watching Youtube videos, it seems like in the US only under 25 year olds that wear flat brim hats drive WRX's, but for me it's the perfect for practicality and a car that I can regularly track and enter events in, and luckily in Australia it doesn't seem to attract the same buyer group.

Early 60's, so I'm probably one of the oldest WRX owners here.

Bought a new 2019 WRX Limited (6 speed of course) earlier this year and absolutely love it! In some ways it reminds me of the old Saab Turbos I used to drive in the 80's and 90's - great ergonomics and visibility, practical yet fast and excellent handling.

The stiff ride might get old after a while, especially on long trips, but for now I can't think of anything I'd rather drive on a daily basis (and I've owned well over 100 cars in my life) (if Kia offered a stick in the Stinger V6 I'd probably jump on that, but it will never happen).

I suspect that the posting of videos is something that is skewed toward the younger generation(s), their desire to publicize so much of their lives and need for "likes" and such - in other words, I don't think you've been getting a very balanced picture.

If you're talking about new car purchases, the average age is probably closer to 40. Older WRXs tend to be owned by younger people on the basis of lower up-front cost, while older owners may not be as willing to deal with as many repair issues as older cars tend to bring.

I'm a bit older than AnalogMan (I'll be 72 before the year is out), and if there's a single encompassing reason why we went with a WRX Limited it's because it promised to be a really fun car to drive. We'd never settled for a car that we couldn't anticipate was going to remain fun to drive, and we weren't going to walk away from that mindset this time either. I say 'we' because the WRX is now the "family sedan", and she's nowhere near ready to give up doing the gearshifting herself either.

Our WRX probably won't ever see track time, at least nothing above a highway-speed parade lap pace. I've got my own car for the faster stuff (which I do have a few in-car videos of up on Youtube).

65 now and retired.
Still have my 03 WRX, 20,000 miles, and my 88 Supra, 41,000 miles.
Both perfect and heavily modified.
