Default New ride!

Well after graduating college and landing an internship that turned into a full time job...i decided to get rid of my craptastic neon and reward myself

Its a 2012 Subaru Impreza Wrx, just under 18k miles, and is still in showroom condition.
ill try to get more pics up tomorrow, as soon as i left the dealer i had to run home, change, then run to work.

I love the boxer motor! And you're right - they do sound great - open 'er exhaust up!

I had a friend in college with cut-outs on his STI. He'd set off car alarms in the parking garage.

That's a damn fine looking car Sjona - congratulations.

Congrats on the new car, and job. As a car mechanic I have to say, the only thing I have ever had to do to repair a customers car if they drove a sub was change brakes, oil, and tires. They are very reliable and those engines, man they have alot of hidden potential.

Not sure how far I'll take it, but I'll for sure get a cai, exhaust, and ecu tuner, with just those I'll get around 260 at the wheels, stock they have about 210

Love those cars. I got hooked in my buddies 12 sti but I can't afford the payments/insurance/premium gas. Hopefully the next gen leaks soon and I can fall in love when I'm in a better financial situation.
