    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Salvage title is a bit iffy. A quick eBay search showed the GTIs closer to 18-20k.


    Great. I am in somewhat similar shoes as the OP except I won't be getting anything for another six months. And I am in CA so don't need AWD. Looking for something more fun than a Civic, which is the obvious / smart choice. 4 door ideally.

    OP,

    How about a Subaru Legacy GT? You get the turbo and AWD of the WRX, but it looks a lot more grown up. With a simple stage I flash you can hit around 300hp.

    Mine's been a rock and is pretty fun. Engine/transmission have been around forever and are solid. The overall build quality of the interior/etc are just so-so though.

    When I bought mine, it was 2.5 years old / 30k miles and I paid $15.5k for it with the premium trim ( turbo, leather, moonroof, premium sound, etc )
