    Had both 05 WRX and 06 STI

    Just from my personal experience, I would go with the WRX. Yes the STI has more power but just getting into the Boosted Impreza world, the WRX would be a good start. The big difference besides power is the tranny. STI-6 speed, WRX 5-speed. Also, if you go with the WRX, do not go with 02-05 as they have the smaller 2.0L block, the 06-07 has a 2.5L block, similar to that of the STI. The WRX would be cheaper as it is the mid-grade Impreza, but tuning wise, there is plenty of aftermarket support regardless of the platform that you choose. Either way, the cars may not be cheap to get into, but they are worth every penny (in my opinion).
