Finally Bought A New Car!

So after months and months on the fence, I finally bit the bullet and bought a new car. (I actually bought it 3 weeks ago, but forgot to post about it)

I have been using my Porsche Boxster as my daily driver since getting rid of some other cars in my stable. It’s a blast to drive, but it’s not practical in the least. 2 seater, tiny trunk, crappy gas mileage, and a pretty rough ride. (Awesome on the track, but murder on our pothole-ridden streets!

I looked at quite a few cars, but most of them weren’t the most practical choices.. I had to consider the amount of snow we get each winter, and that took a lot of RWD cars out of the running. (If I lived in a warmer climate, a 2011 Ford Mustang GT would already be in my garage!)

Car magazines have been writing about how great the 2011 WRX Sedan is, so I had to check it out. I’ve wanted a WRX since back in 2002, and almost bought a few of them along the way, but for whatever reason the deal never happened. In 2008, Subaru redesigned them, and the sedan was downright UGLY. In 2010, I briefly considered getting the hatch, but I wasn’t really feeling the hatchback look.

I’m glad I waited. The 2011 sedan is bad-ass! Finding one in stock is damn near impossible, so I ended up ordering one from the factory.. I’m hoping to take delivery in late November or early December. When I do, you can be sure I’ll be posting pictures.

Until then, here’s a brochure picture in silver. Not a bad color in person, but the Satin White Pearl color I decided on is something else altogether!
