I'll always remember the first time I watched "The Fast and the Furious": it was the day I fell in love with the Lancer EVO and rally cars in general.
But, that was a loooong time ago. I feel that I've matured, and my tastes have done the same. But I'll always be a rally tuner at heart. But with that shift in maturity, I've fallen head over heels over WRX's and STI's.
Here's a really broad and subjective question for everyone (): which car gives you the best "bang for you buck?" As in, is the EVO more comparable to a WRX or an STI? I'll try and rope the topic in with a few specific questions:
- Gas mileage?
- Horsepower? And by that I mean "useful" horsepower (I know that some people are totally in love with higher numbers, even though torque should be something to consider along with just horsepower)?
- "Head-turning-ness." Like I said, I used to be really into EVO's, but I moved to Maine a couple of months ago and there are Subies everywhere. And I have to stop and look at every one I see :rofl:
- Upgradability. Which car is easier to upgrade/mod? Which is the cheapest? Which gives you the best results per mod?
Feel free to discuss anything else I've missed. I'm totally on the WRX side and would sell both my kidneys for an '07 STI. But I do want input from both sides (I know, maybe it's asking for a little much since this is a WRX forum. But I'm sure there are plenty of you out there that aren't just super-fanboys (or girls!) and are willing to discuss the upsides and downsides to either make, and both models of subies. Thanks!
