    I'm a new member from Memphis tn. Fixing to head to boot camp this tuesday for the us air force. As of right now I'm driving a 2002 celica gts but after boot camp and tech school I'm planning on buying a brand new impreza wrx. I love the sedan but the hatch is growing on me.

    You're in the military, the practicality of the hatch should be no contest!

    The STI is always the better option,but if you don't know if you want to spend that much,the WRX will do.
