Hope this is the right forum, thought it would be.
Hey guys, as you can see this is my first post on the forum. I've bypassed my "first car" and as of next summer I'm going to be getting a new car. I'm looking at buying either a WRX, which I've always had a thing for, or an RSX Type-S. I'm really not interested in fanboyism or anything of that sort and I am posting this on a couple different forums to see the responses.
Anyway, I have about 17-19,000 to spend on a used car and I've narrowed it down to these two. I would love an STi but I guess since money is somewhat of an issue for the initial purchase it's out of the question. I'll have money to mod my car over the next few years, and once I decide on which car to buy I'll need to figure which direction to take it. This will be my DD and my ONLY car, and I need to have it last for at least 4 years. I'm not the kind of person to really dog a car out or anything so that's not really the issue. I just need some advice on what's going to be the most reliable and fastest car for what I want. I do want to mod it, and will probably spend a considerable amount of money in that department. Does anyone have any input they'd like to give me to go RSX or WRX to meet my needs?
17-19k for initial purchase, 3k yearly for mods
Most reliable after turbo: WRX or Type-S
DD, must last 4-5 years or ~200k miles
