After a couple years with my Fiesta ST, in early July 2017 I placed an order for a brand new WRX; a 2018 Premium in Lapis Blue Pearl. This was something I had dreamt of doing since shopping for my very first car as a teenager!

The WRX neatly filled the void left when I sold my Fiesta ST, and proved to be a much more practical daily driver, without sacrificing too many of the fun-to-drive qualities that made the ST a great car.

I had a great four and a half years with the WRX, but as I hit 30, my priorities shifted drastically, and I needed a car that better suited our families needs. So in March 2022 I decided to trade in the WRX for a 2022 Legacy Touring XT.

I’ll always consider the WRX my “attainable dream car”, and absolutely loved every day I was able to drive it!
