New ride - 2012 WRX

Replaced my 05 Grand Cherokee with this. Loving it so far. Got the premium trim level and added spt exhaust, short shifter, sirius, and the factory sub.

That looks like fun! Excellent choice on the options as well. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it all cost?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Congrats, looks sweet.

300+ HP and FPT out of a 3K lbs AWD Car that can be modded to well over 500HP for less than a $5K - Only issue is the Trans taking all that extra "umph"

It is AWD and wit the right tires will go thru snow like my VW

Its the Car you see ken Block doing all his Gynkana stuff in

Low center of gravity, faster acceleration, and wicked engine note. Couple that with AWD, sport tuned suspension, and a turbo charger, and you have a nice little pocket rocket. Throw in a hatchback for practicality and you basically have the perfect ride. I will say I do not like the interiors of the previous body style.
