    Tough call.....if MOD money is fairly accesible and trading in your current car won't hurt you financially I would say go for it.....I am not sure what else you can upgrade on your car

    I would trade my WRX, but for now it does not make any sense (finances wise)



    .
    My car sounds like a LIGER.......ERZ + SPT = LOUD......pretty much one of my favorite sounds.....

    it all depends what you want to go for...if you want to go mod crazy the evo would be a good pick because the block is very strong...i love the looks of the STI more and it also comes with the 6 speed....the STI just looks so much more agressive...but i want more reliable power so i might go w/ the evo
    05 STI

    KEEP YOUR WRX

    why do i say that...
    1. all the money you put into it
    2. you're starting all over with payments...again
    3. STI or EVO= higher maint... tires, 93 gas, moble 1 sytec, all starts to add up

    i was gona trade my wifes car for a STI...but why her car has just hit 14k miles, and in september we're paying it off.... and we're keeping it.. and modding the hell outta it too.

    Keep the wrx and just get a really fast bike to feed your need for speed.

    Sell the WRX, buy an old L and do an STi engine swap or a 98-01 RS and do a WRX/STi swap, jdm or usdm. No monthly payments & lighterr by 300-500lbs. If you wanted to keep the WRX, a V7 jdm engine will go right in, P&P.

    I've wrestled with the same decision. If I could afford to, I'd sell the WRX. If I wanted to keep the new car stock, for inspection purposes or whatever, I'd then get the STi. If I planned to mod the next car a lot, I'd spring for the EVO, which can easily be turned into an amazing, AWD monster.

    Look at all these Scooby Guys jumping ship and swimming over to the Evo Camp, what no Loyality?


    Step 1, return your WRX to stock or as best as you can.
    STep 2, Trade WRX in for an 05 GSR EVO, all you need
    Step 3, Sell mods off car
    Step 4 Purchase a Cat Back/MBC/MR BOV for the Evo, Enjoy 300WHP of Warranted Evo.


    Any questions?
