    Wrx STI vs 350z

    Im planning to buy one or the other as my first carcuz i have some money in my pocket, and i wanted to know which is overall better:
    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~

    um i loved the z when it came out it sounds great handles great looks great.....but i never ever felt like i was going real fast....it has no pull when compared to the sti...which looks amazing, sounds great....and so on and so on.......and for the same price the sti is more of an every day kinda car.......4 doors way and bigger trunk.......and awd for the wet and winter....


    my buddy has a z and the fist time he saw my sti he fell in love...i think i made him jealous....plus when i went to mach v and saw 2 tt 350z's and 1 tt g35 sport coupe i asked while they were all there and they had blown engines.......i rather have and mod a car thats engine is made for the turbo


    350z's are great so either way you win

    STi

    I looked at a lot of cars when I bought mine and felt like it was the all around best. Although I havent had it very long, I definately dont have any regrets.

    yup.

    The STi is much more practical and has a lot more power to give. The one thing the 350Z holds over it is the overall "sports car feel" and the looks of course. Either way you get a winner. If I had a second car I would get the Z. If all I had was one car, probably the STi.

    Go test drive each. That should help the decision making process.

    Get the STi over the 350Z. I looked at both before I got my STi and it was no contest. The STi is better in every way. Plus the 350Z is the official Cheezeball Dude car currently on the market.

    Man, you hit the nail on the head.
    The 350z has the worst reputation around. The general consensus in the automotive community is most 350z owners are tools.

    I personally think its a "pretty boy" car.

    I wouldn't even think twice. STi all the way.

    The list of guys that have traded in their 350z for STi's is pretty long. Thats should tell you something right there.

    This is coming from 2 V8 guys. The Sti is definately the better buy. And believe it or not, if you really do care about what chicks think, they like the STi too, especially after you give them a ride in it.

    I honestly think it is worse. However, I am just happy I never got one, seeing how I might have turned into a rico suave cheezeball.

    Yea, the smarter chicks usually like the STi better.
