My story is the same as the guy with the STi. Even if it seems silly to eco mod a fuel hungry performance vehicle your first new vehicle should be what you want.
I went all out for my limited budget: Extended Cab; Turbo Engine; 4x4; Off-Road Trim; Max-Tow Package.
I was able to tick all the boxes except for a manual transmission.

My vehicle history is all over the place but I have had fun.
My favorites have been:
'92 Skyline GTS-4 Auto
'92 Cherokee 4.0l Manual
'93 MX-5 Auto
'95 Jetta GL 1.9TD Manual
'00 Jetta GLS 1.9TDI Manual
'01 Impreza WRX Manual (US)

And of course my current F150.

I prefer manual vehicles for the control and enhanced driving experience and obvious fuel savings.
Same for turbocharged charged engines for their versatility.
