    The one thing every one is missing in this argument is insurance cost. Other than being worried about awd or wether or not you need 4 doors or you drive in snow you need to think about insurance. Especially if you're still in college. Call up your agent and get a quote on the WRX 2.0 4 cylinder with 4 doors vs the 350Z 2 door sports car with a 3.0 V6 making 289 hp. You'll probably make your decision as soon as you hang up. My buddy was 21 when he got his Z and he was paying 276 a month.

    The Z is a sexy car and probably garners more respect from the general public but the WRX is more easily modified, cheaper to buy, cheaper to insure and you'll be part of a group of people who genuinely love their cars.

    I was having thoughts about trading my stage4 wrx in but now with that post I have a new found appreciation for my wrx all over again. Great price, easily mantained, and a great car community.

    im 19 (18 when I had the Z) and right now I am paying almost 400 more a year to insure the wrx, but it was used when I bought and a new Z would have been much more to insure, but used cars are cheaper than their new ones to insure.

    I have researched quite a bit about 350Z.....

    With a decent driver, they can trap even higher than STi and Stage 2 WRX won't stand a chance against well driven 350Z 6sp on a roll. I have stage 2 WRX and won't even try racing 350Z anything above 100mph...

    The Z definitely isn't a slow car car and it looks great so I'd still get it over a wrx if you don't need the space or awd the wrx has

    What do you want the car for drag racing? cruising? Road racing? all of the above?

    Cobb stg 2 or 2.5 in the quarter mile with a good driver aren't really going to have a problem with a 350z in the stock form running 1320.

    Just drive them both and choose what you want, z's are awesome cars. They've got a great feel to them and I think with the newer ones they've resolved the issues with the front tires feathering. Just that if you're buying it for dragging you're going to have to toss some money at it before it's going to get moving.

    APS kit for these is very nice, looks like a fun install
