No more playing around with ya lol. That's no fun that a WRX insurance is that much more.
Yes totally b.s and has me turned off .so basically stick with the wrx at 330 per month and 180s insurance...or trade it for a uses type r 400per month 130s insurance...same 💰

I’ve never looked at what my car insurance costs before I purchase a car that I want.

The classic "I-lost-my-job-so-I-bought-a-new-car-and-now-I-want-to-buy-my-old-car-back" thread... :rolleyes1:

Nah my old car got totalled by the 18 year old who bought it the first week no joke... lmao 🤣. I still would have sold it I made 7k over msrp.Now I'm waiting for the bubble burst to get back into another type r for 100s cheaper than my 2021.

Great spirit, but you're going to have a challenge finding said deal I'm afraid. Good luck though!!! Personally if you made 7k over on your last one, then I'd be open to spending a bit more to get back into one while the miles are nice and low. I did the same as you - sold a 19 for profit - bought a 21 before things went truly bananas. But I did pay much more for the 21 than the 19 but I wasn't going to let this beauty get away. FK8 FTW

I think the dry heaving when he walked up on the WRX without sufficient preparation when he saw the rear end helped him turn the corner.

Never left the honda world had a s2000 my best car ever and a type r. I have also owned 3 wrx's 13,16 and now 22.The 22 is the best of the bunch performance wise and can look the best with cosmetic work.The fa24 is a beast and puts down 248whp stock.E30 will get you 300whp with just a filter and catback.The fk8 rear is not the prettiest either honestly .I buy cars for the performance per dollar value.

22 wrx is actually a good car but It's not a type r.wrx insurance is stupid high 185per month vs the type r is 134 per month.I will be back...it's just when ever I can get another for a decent price...
Several years later....

So you made $7k on the old FK8, bought a WRX and added $2k in taxes to that price, and now you will buy another FK8 and spend another $2k+ in taxes on that car. This is why trading in and out of cars is a waste of time.
