    1. insurance (very important )
    2. performance (need a fast car )
    3. how easily modded (not to hard to find )
    4. looks (still need to pick up girls
    5. everyday driver (gotta have a job )
    i know kind of picky but its ok. (i know this is a wrx forum so dont give me bull just because uyou only like wrx's)

    ~peace thee~
    1) About the same.
    2) STI
    3) Both are easy to mod.
    4) Both are nice... but I love how the STI comes stock. 350Z looks hot after some mods, stock looks kinda plain... not to mention there are so many Zs out there.
    5) Z probably has a more comfortable ride with a nicer interior... depends on how long you are commuting. But then I again I don't mind driving my STI everyday...

    Not sure if either of these are going to be your best bet as a first car. Both are extremely powerful and need to be treated as such. And if insuranceis a concern, you're going to get burned in either ride (I'm assuming your still in your teens). I know you;ve got your mind set on these two cars and nobodies going to convinvce you otherwise but please be careful and try not to race everything you see out there. Good luck.

    It really comes down to what you want? I have owned both cars. i would take the STi over the 350z. But everyone has there own preference. The Z was a pig out of the whole. The STi was great from the whole. Stock they are real close up top.

    350z with a tt kit can put down 450whp. That's fast. Now if you could make it so the engine wouldn't blow...

    but they handle great from what I hear...

    For less money with the STi you can get the 500 awhp kit with the GT35R and the STi will handle better for less money as well.

    there was a project z in sport compact that they fixed up and they said the handling was on par with a porche's..

    get either a used zo6 corvette cause they will be dropping even more in price now that the new C6 zo6 is comming out. Youll make 650 whp out of that with a supercharger and some other bolt ons. Or the new evo XI is incredible.
