    The RSX-S was, in my opinion, one of the more competent interpretations of the "FWD enthusiast hatchback" formula. 6-speed manual, 2700 lbs, Honda reliability, and an active aftermarket. Given equal drivers and a technical road course with stock cars, I'm thinking an RSX-S could give an '04-'06 WRX a pretty hard time. People adored (and still adore) those cars for good reason.
    I actually gave some thought to looking for one for my kid, when she turns 16 next year.

    What kinds of cars do your friends have ? What are you trying to keep up with?

    I don't want to sound like a ****, but a stock wrx would probably spank your RSX. Once you own a wrx you'll realize that you were delusional to think that your fwd was fast.

    Also, $2600 will get you more than 11hp for sure. I know in the 2011+ models ~$1k will get you to the sti power levels. The 0-60 in those models is faster than the sti 0-60. The newer models also have a much improved 5 speed, the older transmissions are known as "the glass 5spd".

    If you are def going with the older models, you should go with the sti. For the newer models, the wrx is the better choice for you.
