Hey everyone, my name is Drew and i'm currently in the process of finding either a 2011 wrx or sti. I have yet to test drive an STI, but the WRX doesn't seem too shabby... I currently have an 08 cobalt ss with a plethora of things done to it. I feel it's time to jump ship, i've never owned anything other than GM cars (94 saturn sl2, 04 ion redline, 08 balt ss) (pics on request) I'm pretty sick of fwd cars; horrible launching, torque steer, inability to keep any kind of traction when it's wet, plus there's a great possibility I'm moving to Ohio soon.
I do have a couple questions though. From a performance standpoint, what are the limits of both cars without really digging into it? Do both models use the same suspension and gear box? What are some things I need to look out for? I know most of you are going to groan and say, "use the search button", which I have, sort of... Any and all advice will be thoroughly appreciated.
