    Maybe this will help you decide if you want an SRT-4

    STI
    Pros
    Stunning acceleration, slightly more forgiving ride than Mitsubishi Evolution, high-quality cabin trim.
    Cons
    Handling not quite as sharp as Evolution's, vague gearshifter, audio system is a pricey option.

    Hi, I have a post on my blog discussing general reasons to buy a subaru here:
    Why you should buy a Subaru

    And more details about the STi (it's comparing the STi to the Evo, but it lists some good details on the STi anyway and info was from multiple sources too):
    STi details

    Good luck on your decision!

    werd. 'only' 60k miles on it. and itll run like a champ right before the engine blows up, too.

    seriously, dont buy a used performance car. youre buying someone elses abuse, and itll piss you off when you have to fix it. its just different if the car is yours from the start, and you break ish.

    SRT4-Pros: Acceleration
    STI-Pros: Acceleration, stopping, turning.

    Honestly the choice is yours. Don't trust anyone here.

    How did you wreck the car?


    Why would you want a sti if you couldnt handle the power of the ss? (assuming this was the case)

    He's asking a Subaru forum if he should buy a Subaru. It seems to me that the replies are going to be a bit biased.

    there are lots of non subie drivers here, the WRX is a cult car and past owners love them so much they still hang around and shoot the **** about them.

    also we have people who buy and sell used cars as their job here, plenty of objectivity.


    there is of course some Bias but we care love our cars, and for most of us not the first or last car we will ever own.
