    i know but i cant make a joke about comparing the s2k and the wrx lol IMO i love em both! not quite equally the wrx is more fun because of its all-year driveability and kick ass bang-for-your-buck performance! but i haven't driven the s2k you should go test drive the wrx and see for yourself!

    first of all i have driven the s2k...in my opinion they are too small and i am 175lbs 5'8" so im not a big guy. i also much rather prefer the AWD over RWD. It SUCKS in snow..but your in florida so just wet roads...AWD you'll never worry about spinning tires from a stop, and awesome traction.

    private sellers in my opinion may be better than dealers (unless an actual subaru dealer) just look more signs it was modded. If you find your car from a private seller goto your bank/credit union and take out a loan. Thats what i did and got a 5.9% interest rate. It was a credit union so naturally lower than banks but you may even find a lower rate from the bank than the dealer...check it out!

    Good luck

    i got my wrx 6 months ago and love every second im in it. i would never trade it for anything, except an STi

    LOL, come to Boone NC - There are WRXs for sale everywhere. I would guess there are four at the Honda dealer any day of the week. Per capita I think we are the WRX capitol of the world.

    I too looked hard at buying an S2000 before the subaru. I drove 4 of them, and felt the same way about the small cockpit. If it was just gonna be a cruiser itd be ok, but the lack of torque kinda bugged me. I also drove Evo's and RX8's, and looked long and hard at a GTO. Drove a few 350z's too.

    BRING IT ON

    What the hell, my car has been in the air prior to me purchasing it. Maybe the OP should be aware of such idiocy. I sure wish I did more research on these cars before buying mine. WRX's are magnets for morons.

    Maybe its our impulsiveness of buying the car that leads to the impulse to go fly off jumps at ridiculous rates of speed...

    I am in the market as we speak and about 90&#37; of the WRX's out there have had a rough existence. BOV's, CAI, jumps rally, MBC, missing boost lines, there is a guy right now selling his vf-34 powered wrx in Utah that has never been tuned. The stupidity doesn't end. yes there are good owners but there are not enough.

    350z, s2000, rx8 were too small inside, not practicle. You could fit you and a backpack maybe. I really wanted a gto, but they only had 2 doors, insurance was outrageous, and they were same price as an STI.

    I liked the Transmission in the s2000 and the start button. The 350z I wasnt hugely impressed with, then again I drove an 06 model not 07. The RX8 had a kick ass cockpit but worthless backseat and trunk, and was down on torque.

    Wrx made sense as it handled well, good power, 4 doors, decent room, and cheap. I liked the Sti but it was about k more than I wanted to spend, and I just couldn't get passed the butt ugly blue interior. I hate it with all my being.

    I speak from experience. I have an 05 s2000 and a 02 wrx. Stock the s2000 is faster, handles better, brakes better, shifts are more smooth and precise and the car has a more quality interior. If you are comparing the sti to the s2000 then that would be a bit more even. If you are comparing a s2000 to a normal wrx then it is unfair. The price tag on the s2000 is a lot more than that of the wrx. I love both cars. I think that the wrx is a more practical car to own. If this is going to be your only car then get the wrx. If you already have another car/truck to drive then go with the s2k. Hope this helps.
