So I am very, very heavily leaning towards getting a 2010 STI, most likely a special edition. My last two cars were American muscle - I had a 2005 GTO, and then a 2003 Terminator. I know what it's like to go fast in a straight line! However, owning two cars is a pain, and I want something nice and fun to drive year round in Michigan. I think a STI would be a perfect fit for me - still quick right from the shop, but can be driven in the rain and snow, and it seems to have a decent aftermarket community. My whole point of posting this is basically to ask - what will I love, and what will I hate about a STI if I get one? I really see no other competitor on the market in that price/performance range. I'm normally all about buying American, but this car looks like such a good fit for me, that I am strongly considering it. What do you guys think? I'm tired of driving old beat up Explorers, and now a (gulp) Chevy Aveo for the majority of the year, while my toy sits in the garage staring at me.
The Cobra is already sold, so there's no looking back now!
