I might get a 08' WRX tommorrow??

Some of you know and alot of you don't know but I have been having some severe electrical problems with my focus lately like all my inside lights not working then the all the parking lights stopped working except the headlights and to top it off it was raining and I was in scrubs so I got soaked trying to check the fuses. Well I end of taking it to my mechanic friend who i trust and we check it out and find out it must be the head light switch so since it was night time we rigged up a switch and bypassed the headlight switch for the parking lights till I could get one well being hooked up that was the license plate light was not working so I got pulled over luckly I quit doing ah bad things for a little while and he only gave me warning well I go back and we go to wire it up to the tail light for a tempary fix well I loose the the whole right side. So I knew it was my hazard swtich again so I buy another and i go to junk yard and buy another headlight switch since the new part from ford is a $170!!! well i put it in and I blow the fuse so by now I'm getting real pissed my cars been off the road for over a week because I do all my driving at night so I put a 15 amp fuse in it instead of a 10 and it works apprently there is a short somewhere but I've had with my focus for has much money has I spent on this thing keeping it going such has a another motor and various other parts and not to mention I can't get the damn thing to idle right. Tom said it sounds like I'm having ground issues on that idle problem I'm getting extremely weak spark. I've cleaned the big three and every other one I can find but to no avail so I made the decssion to get rid of this curse that this car has on me I love the car but its just does not love me back and I do believe it is time to move on to another car. Now don't get me wrong I love the focus and others but I feel since there are no good offereing from ford such has the new focus wich I do not like I looked at a SVT but honestly my car has balls compared to it I've beaten other SVT's and the one I looked at needed a new clutch and new brakes they were down to the metal thought so it needed some work done to it and it was'nt a euro package ether. So I decided to get what I always wanted which was a mustang but the ole' wifey wants me to get something family friendly so I'm in the market to get something new. The stang would be much cheaper but she and I does'nt wasnt to deal with problems again like my car had and there were many from the begining. So I decided to buy new or well she said how about a subie and I went for a ride in one and I liked it it has lots of low end tq now compared to the older 2.0 wrx's the turbo spools up quick. So she and goes and test drives one and is like that s way too fast so her saying that makes me want one. I really wanted a stang so I could run some vettes down but I can still do that with the subie I already checked out if they even make parts for the new one and they do but they are pricey but I woul'nt buy any right way being that there is a warrenty and the mazdaspeed3, srt-4, and any other hot hatch is out of the question I"m tried of front wheel drive and going through tires like there is not tommorrow so hopefully I'll be able to get the wrx for the price I want and payment and not to mention the amount I want on my focus if they don't give me what I want I'll go get a stang so ether way I'll be happy. If ya'll have any questions feel free to ask I'll still be cruising the forums here and I wonder if tom tunes any subies's?

Um...you need to use the enter button more. WRXs are good cars though, and I have heard that interior quality on the 08s is a vast improvement over the older versions. Do you plan to mod it?

^^good to hear I'm a little worried since this is a totally new car and we all know the problems the first focus had and my wifes pacifica had alot problems too when they came out too most cars do till they work out the bugs. Sorry about the mine novel there that was an aprreviated version too i've had lots of problems I just thought I should try and justify myself before getting flamed.
