If what you like about the car is that other people like it then it is what you like and that is what you should drive.
Of course. As you said, if trying to impress other people is what a person likes and wants, then it's completely their right to buy whatever car they want to do that.

I'm certainly not a psychologist, and could use the services of one. But I think along the same lines as @PenGun and @Capt_Spaulding. If the main motivation in buying a car (or anything else) is primarily what others might think of it, more than a person's own intrinsic liking of it, I think there might be healthier ways of addressing a sense of low self-esteem.

It's like when I was in high school, and I got rid of a Ford Pinto and bought a 1969 Mustang Fastback. I thought it would be easier to get dates. At the time I was choosing between the Mustang and a Saab 99. I also happened to like the Mustang, but one of the reasons I chose it was because I thought it was a 'hotter' car and I would likewise be seen as 'hotter' by the girls at school.

I was woefully wrong.

Sixty-one

61. I picked up a used 2013 one month ago. It makes me smile every time I drive it. It's going to be my new favorite car.

I’ve noticed a lot of the YouTube BRZ videos are kids anywhere from 18-25ish. But maybe that is more to do with younger kids videoing themselves.

I’m 30, FWIW

Yes, I agree. We youngins love filming our install videos and posting them on You-Tube.

I sampled autox a couple times in a school car, and did very well. I'm liking my road course focus, tho.

I tried having fun once. I hated it.

Bought my FR-S at the age of 55. 60 now. I drive a lot. Don't race. Like driving in winter in snow. Don't like it when other people drive in winter in snow around me.
