    And if he's paying for the car I'm assuming you don't have much money to mod it or take it to the track. So I think the best fit for you is the WRX.

    But be sure to test drive as well as check out some other cars just for comparison. Mazdaspeed 3's and Evo X's are both worth a comparison IMO since you mention both the hatch and sedan, and they fall into the same budget and performance specs.
    wouldnt the Exo X par with the STI? i think the mazdaspeed 3 is inn the WRX's league.

    ^^ Yeah, definitely. But you can get a new Evo X GSR for $30,200 here in So Cal so that puts it's price between the $25k WRX and the $34k STI. So I thought I would throw it into the mix since power-wise it's close. But yeah, on paper it compares more closely to the STI no question.

    But i couldn't tell you how much it would be for a used STI depends on year but the price wouldn't change that much between years.

    for the insurance rates people are listing, where do you live and who did you go with (any infractions counting against you too)?

    I live in Pittsburgh and will be getting an '11, only looked up one place so far (i think progressive) and for full coverage looking at $166 a month.

    I'm 24 so next year that will drop a good bit, but I think I'll be going Erie Insurance since that's what i'm currently on for my Pontiac.

    I went through the same dilemma about two months ago before I got my car.
    The Sti is great if you want to rally it.... Upgraded brakes, suspension and traction system. Assuming you are talking 09, 10 Sti. My 2010 WRX was faster than the 10 Sti by a tiny bit. This is due to weight reduction by not having all that stuff. I'm not rally-x ing it. So, I didn't care. Save the cash and get the WRX, see if your dad will put some of it toward an exhaust, down pipe and tune.... It's a lot cheaper to work on a scooby btw...

    I'm with State Farm located in Newport Beach, California.

    21 years old. No tickets, No accidents (i've been rear-ended 3 times, none my fault). I get a multi-line discount because my El Camino is also insured through them. I'm rated on the El Camino as well, so the WRX will be insured as an "extra-vehicle." I also get a 10% multi-line discount for having a $125 dollar renters insurance and good grade discount until i'm 25 because I graduated from a University with over a 3.0. $78 a month.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm using Progressive and have been for some other vehicles. I think for the car it's $840 a year. For my Ninja XZ 1200R it was only $360 a year w/ full coverage. I have had one claim on the WRX for a gas tank (hit a steel shelf bracket on the road and put a hole in the tank) and was happy with the service speed and overall experience.
