Well as the title says I have a Volvo v70r, 6sp manual, etc. It's now 5 years old and I am thinking about replacing it with a WRX or STI.
If I go subaru, I'm leaning towards the WRX, less boy racer looking.
I test drove a new WRX today and it was nice, the seats don't hold you like the R's but still good. The power seemed good, especially 3k rpm and up. All in all a nice car with good power and handling.
So my question would be to anyone who has had experience with both to chime in and give me their opinion.
Also is the STI really worth the extra 8-9 grand? Is it cost effective to upgrade a WRX (tune, brakes, exhaust) to get closer to 300hp?
What about cargo room? I know it wont be as much as my current wagon, but how is it for a family of 4 and road tripping?
