Hello everyone, I am a new member, but I've always been a wrx fan. I was very close to purchasing a 2.5RS as my first car, but unfortunately I couldn't find a good deal. Since then, I purchased a 2004 dc5, which I've grown to love and hate.
The reason why I love it is because it is a fair (not great) daily driver. The quality of the buid materials is great. The reason why I don't like the car is because it is horrible as a trip car. Obviously, it is a two-seater so it isn't meant for long hauls, but I snowboard many times throughout the year. Also, the car's power output isn't all that great.
I've been thinking of purchasing a car within the next year or two. I may be thinking too far ahead, but I tend to do that. I've brought my choices down to the Subaru WRX STi or the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (not sure on which trim).
This being a WRX forum, I'm sure I will get more biased opinions than not, but I don't care. I am also a registered member of another EVO forum. I'm just trying to get input from both sides
Which car do you suggest I purchase?
I just need a car that has superior snow handling (with snow tires) and is very, very comfortable on long drives. Also, reliability is probably the highest necessity in a car for me.
