I have been car shopping for about 8 months. I have narrowed it down to the WRX or a GTI. I spent the day with a 5spd WRX yesterday. Really liked the car. all wheel drive feels very stable in the corners and off the line. The interior is not quiet up to the level of the GTI though. Believe me this is the he toughest car buying decision I have made I think ever. Does anyone regret buyin a WRX. The 08 feels less rally and more sedan to me, but its still a blast to drive. Any help would great.
