Hi guys, new to the forum and I have to say that you guys seem to be a pretty good bunch of people.
In any case, thought I'd ask this as a search yielded small to no results.
I'm in the market for a new (or used) car, and I've narrowed it down to 2: '06 WRX TR or an '05 STi. I really like both cars, but to be honest, I love all the things that the STi stands for (somewhat nicer interior, nicer engine components, more power, etc.).
Do you guys think that it'd be worth it to go for the STi? I love to mod my cars and would probably mod the heck outta either one. But I'm not a track person at all, so I wouldn't be planning on taking it to the strip or autocrossing.
I can afford both price-wise (insurance, etc.), the STi would be a bit more, but not to the point where it's ridiculous. On the STi, I'd be worried that it's a used car, whereas with the TR, it'd be new.
What do you guys think? Should I save money, be responsible and get the TR, or just go with the STi?
Thanks for your feedback!
