I recently ordered a 2012 WRX 5 dr. I drove an STI also, but because I'm using my new car as a DD and not taking it to the track I went with the WRX. Plus I had to be honest with myself and admit that at my driving skill level I wouldn't get the most out the performance the STI offers. I drove an EVO X too but the seats were the most uncomfortable things I've ever sat in. Pinched my legs together so tight it made my nuts hurt (and I'm a small guy). Couldn't see driving that around every day. I can't wait for my WRX it to arrive and I know I'll have a lot of fun with it it. I figure I'll drive it around for a year to really get the feel for it before mod anything. And even then probably a short throw shifter rather than any power mods. Until my WRX arrives I'm having quite a bit of fun browsing around your forums. Lots of good advice on what to do and not to do. Cheers and see around.
