Yes, we all know that the STi is better, it's just a fact. I want to know what you folks think is better for me though.
So firstly, my car history and what I'm used to. Front wheel drive mostly, I've owned a Golf Gti vr6, and a Honda CRX. Neither have much power, or could be classified as even close to a standard Impreza.
I'm looking at a year around 2005, since budget is an issue
No, I don't plan to go to a track, or even try to race random delinquents on the street. I'm just looking for a fun, 4wd, reliable car, and the Impreza caught my eye.
If I decide to get the WRX, I wouldn't try to modify it to have the equivalent power to an STi, but I may tinker. If I decide to get the STi, I probably wouldn't be replacing anything unless it breaks.
The big thing though, is that I want to have fun. If the WRX is difficult to just have fun in, then maybe the STi would be better for me.
So, with all the "STi or die" thoughts out of mind, what does everyone think?
