27. Until I can't shift smoothly I'll drive whatever car I want.

Once I can't, I'll let the autonomous vehicles take over....

57. The RS is supposed to be a transition vehicle until Subaru WRX/STI 5 doors return. We've owned (4) of those but this car is fun!
Exactly my plan. Warranty was running out on my STI hatch and Subaru hasn't changed the motor in 12 years, plus they killed the hatch. Hoping they come out with something better in 2020 and maybe I'll go back in '21.

30. Seems like that's on the young side. Props to people under 30 who can afford this car!

30, 31 in a couple weeks. After daily driving an 04 Sti for 60,000 miles, a 05 Evo for 20,000 miles, an 06 S4 for 50,000 miles and a 12 Sti for 40,000 miles, it was time for something different, just rolled over 600 miles this weekend. Got 31 mpg on my last tank of gas during break in, way better than any of the previous cars I listed.

I'm pretty happy.

Bought my car (first brand new car) at when I was 31 last October. I wanted an STI since I was 20, but I'm glad i bought a house instead and now I can "responsibly" enjoy my AWD turbo 5 door smile maker.

haha 47, though it seems that it takes till this late in life to be able to afford* a sports car for a lot of people.



*afford = not just $$, but fitting it into your life/style

56 years young here. Haven't had a new car for me in 26 years. They were always for the wife of the moment to haul the kids around. I drove mostly modified e30's for the last 18 years. Don't get me wrong I built some outrageous e30's!
