Hey everyone, I am new to this.. Im pretty sure there are tons of threads like this out there and I apologize, but anyways- I am 20 years old and I am looking to buy my first new car pretty soon (currently dd-ing an older civic ex - auto tranny) and looking for my first manual trans. I really like the 2015 WRX because i have always been a fan of the Subaru, however I'm also indecisive towards the 8th or 9th Gen. Civic Si. I live in the mid-west, where snow is a problem and would love the AWD but I also have to be financially considerate, not to mention the WRX has stock turbo- meaning more insurance (Especially at my age) along with WRX maintenances and gas mileage. I want something reliable- but also something that I can have fun with and not regret it in the long run due to early issues with the car. I will be daily driving it and want it to last me awhile... So, it would be helpful to hear some opinions and information about either car.
