Paul, it sounds like you keep trying to convince yourself that this car, and by "this car" I mean every car you look at is "THE ONE".
You were dead set on a hatchback STI, and the coupes didn't do it for you. Now you are settling on a coupe because THIS one is the one for you.
Like I said the other night, you are blinded by lust for this car, and it's going to get you into a car you're going to regret. $20K is a lot of money to spend on a used car that doesn't meet every prerequisite you demand.
Be honest with yourself, is this the absolute, undeniable, 100000% "dream car" STI you are looking for?
My money is on that it's not, and you're settling on the first pretty girl at the dance. Buy a cheap winter vehicle, get through until you save enough coin to get that absolute, undeniable, 100000% "dream car" hatchback STI you are wanting. Might take a few months, or even a year to save up the extra loot to get to the '08 hatchback you so long for, but you'll appreciate it that much more.
That's my opinion, I won't say another word if you don't want me to.
No chad thank u very much. I mean damn good advice. I heard the 2008 and up have ringland failure issues in the engine that's why I was looking at the 07 and below.
The hatch it's cool, they both are, I mean 07 is the nicest of the sedan, 2009 is nicest of the hatch. I mean side by side idk what I would pick TBH. They are both nice.
2009 is a hatch, more room, better trans and power, nice style. 2007 is the rally style, bad ass blue interior, wing, gold rims, and a nice set up. I mean between those two idk what I would get. I lean towards the 07 due to insurance cost, but then could get a Wrx and build it to be better then a sti.
And I know they are a money put. All newer cars are that are over 10,000. I know I will loose money and I'm ok. I'm tired of these beat to **** cars, so if u have to pay a tiny bit extra to get a well taken care of car, I totally would.
I learned from my cobalt this and just impulse buy is never ok. I have been looking for what 3 months non stop? It sucks. But ya don't rip into me I already know
