This will fly in the face of many Subaru fanboysl I don't care. I love my 2010 WRX and cannot, for the life of me, think why I would want an STI. That's not to say others don't have great reasons to go to the more significantly more expensive car. Realistically, you cannot even vaguely legally use the extras (HP, brakes, etc.) that come on an STI on the street. But, if an STI helps your sex life, great. (Some people have trouble that way, you know...) TBH...for the money that a new STI commands, I'd look at a lot of other cars...new and used. Do you really, really want a car booking in the mid-30's with this level of stereo and other refinements that make a care livable on a day-to-day basis?
