Hello, I am considering on purchasing a used wrx (maybe a wagon) sometime in the future, so I joined the forum. I am a big fan of the Honda Fit as well, and also a member of fitfreak.net. I currently own a 03 jetta 2.0 at, which would be great if it was the 1.8 turbo MT, but it's not, so it sucks.
I have been looking at the Fit for quite a while, bc its a four door hatch, mileage easily in the 30+, easy to mantain, and fun to drive.
But subaru has awd=awesome. and I believe that wrx's are turbo'd (turbo=teh sex) which would blow the fit's 117hp out of the water.
so I will be bumming around here, asking super n00b questions (like 'are all wrx's turbo'd'). BUT, I do know how to click the SEARCH button, read old posts, and how to google.
Basically, my big question is if I want to purchase a brand new econobox and get great mileage, lots of room, and great handling
or, the awd turbo and get some power and cool awdness.
I also want to do some modding, prob i/h/e, sound, some suspension, and shoes; all over time.
eventually, I want to own both, that's gonna take a while.
(nice site btw, very easy to navigate, I think fitfreak is v bullentin too.)
