Age: 27, Been driving my '09 Subaru Impreza Sports Edition since age 18 in 2010 - it's been a good 9 years with this 10 year-old car. of the 116,000 miles, 100,000 of them are with my butt in the driver's seat.

Pictured here is me at age 18-19 with my Impreza in all her glory - only we just got dumped on the night before. But, to be fair - I bought her exactly for weather like this!

Default Hi

I am 42. My first Subaru was a 2005 Impreza Outback Sport. Very dependable and good car, especially with all the crap I put her through. The wife and I also have a 2016 Crosstrek. My middle daughter (19) has a 2017 Forester that I helped her buy. Her long time boyfriend has a 2015 Outback. So you can say we are a Subaru Family even though I also split time driving my 1995 Ford F-350.

Hi all. Semi rude question. (Not out of jealousy, but curiosity )

How can y'all afford brand new cars around 25ish age?
I see people my age getting '18 and '19 model cars.
Are cars so much cheaper over there?

A couple examples of car prices over here.
A 2018 WRX STI starts at €100.000,-/111K USD (yes, a hundred grand) over here in The Netherlands.
A 2017 Camaro SS (6.2 V8) costs €120.000,-/133K USD
Even the most basic 2019 Subaru BRZ starts at €62.000,-/69K USD without any options...

If these cars were $100k here, there would be almost no 25 year olds who could afford it. There is a huge range when it comes to what an "average 25 year old" would make, but if I had to "guess from the hip" i'd say most 25 yr olds make less than $50k per year (many much less). Which puts $100k cars WELL out of reach

A brand new STi here is less than $40k...

Guys - your non-Subarus are the only two cars, in exactly those trims, that I would currently consider if I had to replace my '08 Mustang

Then I had to drive a Tribeca and Infiniti G35x for a few years before I was back to boost with a 2015 Forester XT. I passed that to my son 2 weeks ago and traded his 10 yr old RAV4 in for the new WRX.

Now 57 years old, and still with the 2017 WRX LTD at 34,400 miles.

I had picked up new wheels a while back, taken off a 2015 STi LTD. They were gunmetal grey, but had been curbed a few times, so got them repaired and repainted for father's day this year. I kept the stock wheels for my winter tires.

After early years of loud cars, I started making them stealthy daily, I chose a chassis that was originally equipped with a 4-cylinder and made it deathly silent with an mostly original V8 engine for reliability


Had to stick a turbo on it thought because stock 4.x/5.xL Engines with a small cam and factory head only makes like 350hp by itself, so this way it can have 700~hp instead

I made the engine easy to work on and remove, I have full plug access (30 minutes to change all 8) and can remove the full exhaust system/turbo in around 1.5 hours. Its about twice as difficult to work on as a 2.0L or 3.0L inline engine, but the displacement and robust drivetrain (wheelstand capable for around $300 in hardware) make up for that.

Looks very docile with the hood down, like a regular 240 4-cylinder. Stock wheels on the front help the disguise but it needs meat and weight on the rear for traction using street tires. I can get 0-45mph before most people can lift their foot off the clutch from a red light without making a sound outside the car.


With just 4-5psi of boost and 87 octane I've put around 10,000 miles on it with the OEM camshaft last year (approx 350ft*lbs of torque from 2500-5500rpm) at 3000lbs using $2.25/gallon fuel

I'm an economy nut, build thread if curious, and its for sale soon also (I build something every couple years then sell and build a new combo)
