    Hey everyone! I don't have a WRX .. yet. I currently have a '98 Civic Hatch (which I've had since I was 17 and well i'm going on 24). There's nothing wrong with the hatch. She still works and looks good as new (probably even better )

    I'm planning to buy a new car (within the next year or so, depending on where life takes me) and I've been debating on which car to buy and well, I'm leaning towards the WRX Wagon. My other choice was a 350z Roadster. I decided I wanted a car with more room , 4 doors, and still have a sense of style and performance, so that's why I'm leaning towards the wagon. I'm still keeping the hatchie though!

    So we'll see what I decide on. ;D Just wanted to say hello!

    Welcome!

    I seriously looked at a Z prior to getting the WRX. There is little room in the hatch to the point of not being practical. Inside there is a little pictogram showing you how to stow two golf bags. Thatís bad Ö Nissan thinks you need directions for golf bags! Itís very shallow back there.

    The rearward visibility is also poor. Get the WRX ... I'm a little biased.

    both cars are in different price ranges, but the 350z is not a very practical car if u need trunk space. I assume that if u can afford a new 350z roadster then u have roughly $35k to spend. If that is the case, I would look into a G35, IS300 sedan/wagon, Legacy GT, Forester XT, or Toyota Avalon (lots of leg room and trunk space) for a combination of practicality, comfort, and performance.

    If you're more performance oriented, a VW R32 would be nice because it's a hatchback. STi and Evo are good choices as well, but have small trunk area space.

    I have taken the price into consideration that's one of the reasons I'm leaning towards the wagon. Like I said in a previous posts, my car choice depends on where life takes me in the near future (house purchase, marriage, new job, etc.)

    I was checking out the R32 before, but once again small trunk space and I don't want a small trunk anymore.

    Thanks for your input. It's nice to see other people's oppinion (sometimes..haha jk..).

    i's actually pretty big for its size. You can fold down the back seats, creates a larger surface area

    what if I have passengers/dogs in the back seat?

    And I kind of don't want a 2 door car anymore as well. Just cause it's easier to get my dogs in and out of the car if it's a 4 door.

    After 8 years I ugraded from a 97 civic to a 02 WRX sedan. Seats and trunk both equal in size. Best thing about the WRX is you still have pleanty of room and all the fun of a sports car. I looked at everything else and each time you had to make a sacrifice.
