04+ wrx isnt a fast car. Just about everyone has a car on the market that is faster and arguably handles better (atleast in the dry). The WRX isnt a strong holder in the sub compact market like it was several years ago.
And after test driving a Mach and a GTO I think a stockish WRX will leave him wanting alot.
0-60 faster then your first sexual experience.

My buddy here at work has an 06 Ford Mustang GT. He put a cat back on, then did headers, did the power pulleys, did a reflash, did the k&n filter kit.. 14.3 in the quarter mile. With Steda traction bars, struts/shocks and Eibach Pro Kit... He also has 20" Boyd Coddington wheels. He put a Saleen Supercharger on it and got it to 13.5 in the quarter. Yes he is spinning the tires all the way down the track... But my opinion 3500 dollars for a supercharger for a mid 12 sec car is Expensive to modify.
I think the WRX is cheaper to mod hands down.

to the g35 suggestion. that crossed my mind. ya it'd be nice luxury sport car, but to get one w/ low-ish miles like the gto and at the same price, would be hard.
the g35 one of the cars i could compare the gto in 'overallness' if you know what i mean. coupes, backseat, luxurious interior, sporty, etc... etc... but not so much modability.
GTO is the obvious choice and GTO is the final decision!!
i'm sure you guys knew that was coming. love that torque from it. and the backseat is a must for me, even though i'm hardly going to use it. i just like having it in a coupe and the extra space it gives me. and all the other pro's and advantages mentioned.
don't know if i mentioneded it, but i've got 2 i'm looking at 04 black 25 k miles for 21 and 04 red w/ 35k miles for 20k. black is my color, so i think i'm going to go w/ that. but i'd be happy with either.
when i get it. i'll be sure to take lots of pics. i like it here, this is a great forum. a lot more informative, friendly, and respectable than the other subie forum i went to for advice.... who's name i shall not mention, lol. you've got a dude who's going to be staying for a while =P
i give major props to all those that helped me out. thank you all.
Fender + WRX > Fender + VW...
GTO is a great car with a great history. Wise decision
