    That said, I think a lot of people buy these cars (both styles) because they combine some practical in with the performance. From there it comes down to individual preferences. If I just wanted performance I would likely have gone a different direction, but for a guy with a family it's a great compromise. (and if I had the money I still would have gotten the WRX because it fit MY needs best) I mean, that's a trip to the Caribbean for two weeks right there ...

    VERY Well put

    I think this is by far the best answer for a WRX vs STI thread. Just order a 12' wrx limited and here's what I think. If you compete with the car in any form or just need to have "STI badge" and can justify paying $6k difference and extra insurance cost then STI is way to go, if you like me and others who see a great value in WRX and will be content with simple pratical uprades like Stage 1, sways and good stereo for roughly $3k, and nice rims and tire for another $3k then none other than WRX.

    To me, that's a much better way to spend that $6k in difference that I probably will do anyways with the STI.
