Hey all,

Wanted to say hi...HI! Name's brandon, and I live in the detroit area. Should be taking delivery of my '08 WRX 5-door really soon...and I'm wicked excited about it. Looking forward to being a part of this community...took some time to read through some threads, and y'all seem like good people that know your stuff...and really like your subaru's.

is it wrong that i don't even have the car yet and have already started thinking about what I'm gonna do it it? ;)

gonna be a little bit of an adjustment. i'm driving an F-150 now...so i'll have to get used to the occasional limited visibility caused by larger vehicles...on the plus side, i'll be able to pass people without dumping a 1/4 tank of gas ;)

the truck gets something like 14mpg...maybe...so, that's some suck. i've gotten on it a couple times, and i can watch the needle on the fuel gauge drop while accelerating...not cool

hey, sounds like I'll be taking delivery of my WRX on Monday! Couldn't find a Dark Grey within 500 miles...and after that the trucking fees were getting excessive. So, I'm getting a silver 5dr manual with the premium package...and the dealership is throwing in a sport grille...WOOHOO!

I just switched from an F150 as well! Had a loaded 04 FX4 Screw. I would have kept it if I had a parking space for it because it was a really nice truck. The HOA in my neighborhood would have summoned me before the Association to explain myself if I left it parked on the street. Did I mention how much I hate CA yet? Anyway, enjoy your new car. I have a stupid smile on my face everytime I drive it, especially after 4 years driving a land yacht.

HOA in theory should be wonderfull as to keeping the neighborhood cleasn and all but it only takes a few power hungry jerks to get involved and ruin it all... :mad:

Welcome box, +1 one on the money pit. Once the mod bug bites it is hard to stop LOL. How is the weather there? I am from the Sault Ste. Marie area and lived there most of my life, I didn't miss the winter there till I bought the WRX, now I think I will miss the snow. ::)

Yah I'm mostly kidding. I've lived all over the state for 35 years and I haven't left yet so I can't be all bad. The biggest problem with California is there's too many Californians. I meant laws, too many laws. Oh and taxes, too many taxes. The weather is great though.

hey piperdriver! it's pretty much just cold here now. we got a couple inches sunday night into monday morning, but all that's pretty much gone now. i know what you you mean about missing the snow. i snowboard, when i can, and i loved winter for that reason alone...looks like i have another reason to love winter ;) couple of the guys i work with were complaining about their drive home the other day...i was like "really, were the roads bad? i didn't notice." ;)
