Don't get me wrong, I knew I was going to like and enjoy the hell out of the car. I was just very pleasantly surprised. The more I drive it, the happier I am I decided on it. It just keeps getting better and better.

I'm sure I'll enjoy it even more when I can drop the top and it not only be 50 degrees out.

No, that was this "dumbass." I'm going to daily drive my STi if it snows. Easily done with snow tires.

I picked mine up for $17k. There are better deals out there every once in a while, but those are few and far between. My friend picked up a black 2003 with 7k miles for 19k. Probably the best deal I have seen.

KBB on these is mine is only $14,300. After some research, I've learned the KBB value is very low compared to what they're realistically going for.

Factor in rear tires to your quarterly budget. It's just how the car's set up He's settled in on Kumho MXs the last few times... bang-for-the-buck, you can't beat them for the stock size.

I cannot believe that's a MY2000... looks brand new! Black interior, or red?
Black interior. I just couldn't sell myself on the red. There's just TOO MUCH red. If it was just red seats, maybe. But the red seats on top of the red carpet is just too much for me.

Nice.
Careful with the throttle in corners.
That car likes to whip it's tail out more than any other RWD I've ever driven.
Tons of fun when you have room to slide a bit, but scary when you're not expecting it.

damn, really clean for an 8 year old car. And only 21,000 miles? I'd say you made out like a bandit.

Correct. Mine is the MY2000, so it has the uber-fun 9000 RPM redline.

I've now had the car for a couple days, and I can say it just keeps getting better. It's so much more refined and better built than my STi.
