Bc I need the AWD and If im going to have AWD I need to have the turbo lol. Here in St. Louis(midwest in general) been having horrible weather that has prevented me from getting to work on 3 different occasions due to FWD of my car and higher tq. Pretty much, a friend sold me on all aspects of the WRX. I was actually in the market for a STI but was told its better to get the 06-07 WRX and mod it with STi components such as turbo, tmic and such and will be quicker, and cheaper at that. so im in the market. saw one I really liked and might take the plunge but still lookking around for possibly better deal.
