2011 WRX Sedan


29, 2011 WRX Sedan in DGM. Just traded in my RSX-S for this. Definitely and upgrade, has a lot of creature comforts over my bare bones racer Type S. Definitely feels more mature.

This car's perception can sorta go both ways. A Blue or Red Hatch gives a different perception then a Dark Gray Sedan imo.

2011 Wrx sti


Will be 34 this month...Just got my first STI. 2011 Blue and by far the coolest car I have ever owned. I have always been an Acura TL guy but I think I have found a new favorite.

I'm turning 32 this month and have my 2004 WRX sedan (fully paid off). An STI would be nice (or many other things would be nice to try out too), but I think saving the monthly payment is probably better for me for now till I can make more money.
I don't own a house yet, not looking forward to a mortgage in the future :P

Here's the STi when I bought it, right after finishing One Lap of America 2008

Just google "Boxer4Racing STi" for more pictures

31.. Have an '05 11 second DD Wagon.
Built for trackdays..

Stripping it down / parting out and selling.

I've been doing the turbo 4 thing for a long time. (I'm a tuner)
Time for another grown up car for me as a DD..

The Subaru "scene" around here is essentially composed of either "street racer/drifters" or Hipsters.. None of them knowing the first thing about cars and 90% being of the ages 17-19 and 1/2..

(Picking up an M5 shortly.)

37, Married W/ 2 Kids, 11 WRX, Mods: stock for now.
It's nice to see I'm not the only one 30+ who loves these cars. I traded my B6 A4 for a WRX. Everything in my life has to be practical, so when It came time to choose a new car I wanted something fun and awd.

34 married and expecting my first baby. Got a 2010 WRX sedan spark silver and traded in for a 2010 Legacy GT limited.
I miss the SPT exhaust and the quickness of the Rex. But Iove the looks and extra room of the leggy.
I'm keeping this one for a while.

Performance wise, on 3rd tranny, broke second on the 0e 5 speed, had a ppg box built and broke a shift fork and syncros, currently running a 4.44fd fxt tranny, carbonetic rear r160, jdm ver8 big port motor, perrin 3076 rotated kit, custom IC piping, dumped wastegate, all work including tuning done by me.

2003 Stock WRX wagon


IM 30 an bought my first bugeye. I think its a good car for my age. When i was in my early 20's i was facinated with hondas, then mustangs, then sport bikes.
Now its subarus. I think in my 40s it ll be infinti and bmw. Im pretty sure im done with honda and toyota for fun cars.

I think this car is so versatile, and i love spanking hondas even with a mountain bike on the rack and the hatch full of sporting gear. Its just too fun.
Def more useful then a slammed honda with about 300LBS of "weight reduction" haha. Ive been through that phase.

i'll be 30 in less than 2 months, have an 02 wrb wagon right now, will have an '11 dgm limited hatch next month. I definitely wanted a more toned down color this time around, plus the leather seats, moonroof, HID's will be fantastic. it's been a 4 months wait since i ordered it and i freaking can't wait to pick it up.

37, picking up 2011 OBP WRX hatch this week. Owned a Civic, then a Mazda6, but need more get up. Tint planned immediately...other mods w/time for max handling, slight power increase.

Still 30 and traded my '05 wrx (stg 2 - but went back to stock) in for a '10 sti last month. Gotta wonder why I didn't just buy an sti in the first place. Will keep just stock enough for B-stock.

For now. 25mm FSB and muffler delete are on the way.
