Man, did I ever blow it. I've been a total Honda/Acura fan for so long that when it came time to replace my Integra and I heard that the RSX came out, I didn't even seriously look at the competition. About the only other car I looked at was the Celica (another piece of junk though). I never would have even thought about getting a WRX... Subaru really needs to work on their marketing IMO.
Anyway, I just got a chance to drive my friend's stock WRX and is this car ever incredible!! It kills my crappy RSX in every way possible: 0-60, 1/4 ET, autoX, moddability, interior, exterior, luxury (well, no leather or climate control, but who gives a **** about those??). Those of you in the US who buy an RSX over a WRX are complete idiots!!! At least in Canada we have a tiny excuse since the MSRP on a WRX is $4,000 more but in the US, they are pretty well the same price! I can't think of a single reason why anyone would buy an RSX over a WRX in the US and the price difference in Canada is negligeable considering how much the WRX completely kicks ass over the RSX.
Anyway, props to you guys for having the best car you can possibly buy out there right now. Damn, I wish I had done a bit more research before buying my piece of crap. I can't even bear to look at it anymore. Hmm, would it suck if I got into an accident and totalled it today?
Oh, and for all you stupid RSX people out there who thinks that the RSX has ANY chance against the WRX in ANY sort of competition (standstill, highway, handling, looks, reliability), get with the program. The RSX doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as the WRX.
