THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE OF OWNING A 2001 WRX FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS NOW TO GIVE PEOPLE AN IDEA OF RUNNING ONE DAY TO DAY.WELL FIRSTLY ALTHOUGH THE CAR IS ALOT MORE EXCITING THAN ALL THE SILVER AND BLACK REPMOBILES EG 10 A PENNY AUDI/BMW'S THE CAR DOES HAVE A CERTAIN IMAGE THAT YOU HAVE TO LIVE WITH OF A BOYRACER CAR BUT TO LOOK AT THEM AS JUST THAT IS ABIT NARROW MINDED,BETTER TO LOOK AT THEM AS A DRIVING ENTHUSIASTS CAR AND THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE FOR THE MONEY.THE ENGINE IS GREAT WHEN THE TURBO IS ON SONG BUT FOR NORMAL TOWN DRIVING AT LOW REVS IT FEELS VERY RAW AND UNREFINED BUT OBVIOUSLY THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY ARE BUILT FOR SO DONT BUY ONE IF YOU JUST WANT A TOWN CAR,THE GEARBOX IS SLIGHTLY NOTCHY AS STANDARD BUT AGAIN WHEN DRIVING QUICKLY YOU DO NEED A TOUGH GEARBOX THAT WILL LAST ESPECIALLY WITH THE 4WD SYSTEM WHICH ALLOWS THE CAR TO STICK TO THE ROAD LIKE GLUE BUT YOU WILL PAY THE PRICE WITH THE OCCASIONAL CLUTCH JUDDER WHEN SETTING OFF AND INCREASED TYRE WEAR,THE TYRES NEED TO BE CORRECT FOR THE CAR AS SOME CHEAPER BRANDS ESPECIALLY V TREAD TYRES CREATE SOME REALLY BAD ROAD NOISE WHICH SOUNDS LIKE WORN HUB BEARINGS,I HAVE PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED THIS SO CHECK THE TYRES BEFORE REPLACING WHEEL BEARINGS,YOU MAY SAVE YOURSELF SOME MONEY!THE RIDE AGAIN IS QUITE HARSH FOR TOWN DRIVING WITH 10 MILLION SPEED BUMPS AND POTHOLES ON OUR ROADS BUT GET THE CAR ON A NICE COUNTRY ROAD AND IT WILL COME ALIVE AND BE IN ITS ELEMENT.ECONOMY WISE I HAVEN'T FOUND IT THAT BAD EVEN THOUGH YOU DO HAVE TO RUN THEM ON SUPER UNLEADED FUEL TO KEEP THEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY ITS ABOUT THE SAME AS V6 CARS IVE HAD IN THE PAST EG MONDEO V6/GALANT V6 BUT YOU DO GET ALOT MORE PERFORMANCE FOR THE FUEL YOU ARE USING.BEAR IN MIND THAT INSURANCE IS NOT GOING TO BE CHEAP,I,M 33 WITH A CLEAN LICENSE AND 15 YEARS NCB AND THE CHEAPEST I COULD FIND WAS NEARLY £800 TFT WHICH WAS ABIT OF A SHOCK.THE BEAUTY OF THESE CARS NOW IS THAT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE BREAKING THEM ON THE INTERNET ETC THAT YOU CAN GET ALOT OF PARTS SECOND HAND WHICH REALLY HELPS KEEPING COSTS DOWN AND ITS ONLY REALLY REGULAR SERVICING,FUEL AND INSURANCE COSTS THAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A WRX OTHERWISE IN MY EXPERIENCE THEY AREN'T THAT MUCH WORSE THAN ANY OTHER PERFORMANCE CAR AS LONG AS THEY ARE MAINTAINED CORRECLY YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO MANY PROBLEMS AS THE ENGINEERING OF THE CARS IS VERY TOUGH AND TO A HIGH STANDARD.SO TO SUM UP YOU COULD EITHER GO AND BUY A BMW 318i FOR £2500 AND BE BORED EVERY TIME YOU DRIVE IT OR FOR SLIGHTLY MORE RUNNING COST YOU COULD HAVE AN IMPREZA WRX THAT WILL EXCITE YOU EVERY TIME YOU DRIVE IT AND AT THE END OF THE DAY ISN'T THAT WHAT DRIVING A CAR SHOULD BE ABOUT!BUY ONE AND START HAVING SOME FUN!
