Took delivery of my 08 Spark Silver WRX 4 Door base around April(forgot the exact date). The car has 1300 miles on it right and love every part of it. Sure the suspension is a bit soft and the exterior isn't as aggressive as I would have liked, but the car overall is fantastic. This is my first Subaru as well as my first manual transmission car. This car is a large step up from my previous 06 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

I'm in West Bloomfield, a footstep away from Commerce. All my buddies actually live in Commerce :D.

Yeah, I can't always make a smooth 1-2 shift either, I guess that will come with experience.
