    I would think it would be the exact same considering they're the same basic layout... ie AWD turbo 4cylinder cars... with the exception of tire replacement and maybe brakes...

    There are slight differences and I think a relatively significant difference in the timing belt change interval -- but I don't own both so am unsure. Also, parts costs are different and can be dramatically different depending on the expendable part in question, but what's money among friends?

    To answer the OP's post - owner's manuals say it all.

    I'm looking into 2011's if the dealers can find one....I plan on having this car for 6+ years. I'd really like to get into an STI sedan, if at all possible. Many people say get used, but I need a warranty.

    Have you priced insurance on both?

    I'm actually still on my parents' insurance and including the 2007 MCS that I'm trading there are 7 cars.

    For the turbo engines it's all the same.
