    This. Although the STi makes for a better commuter.

    Lol that is true, most of my friends like going to the drag. The one who blew his clutch on the evo x is down to hit the track. I think I might get a subaru, but i need to get things sorted out first. Thanks for the tips!

    This always amazes me. I'm on the stock clutch at 100K miles, and have never had a clutch go before 135K miles. What do these people DO to these cars??

    They use 2 step way to much, my friend blew his because he used it 3 times in a row. If you launch to hard or do it wrong you can blow out any clutch. Evos stock clutch is just crap.

    If you don't care about AWD, or having a hatchback, I'm not sure whether the WRX is right for you. It's a great car, but I don't really feel like it's about no holds barred performance. I think of it more like a practical DD that's incredibly fun to drive. STI makes fewer compromises, but there are still compromises

    Personally, I think the STi makes more compromises. It is more of a track breed. Less DD.

    I care about AWD but not so much for the hatch. I had a jetta that had great mpg, I'm just looking for something a lot more faster. I don't get crazy weather conditions where I live so I don't need AWD.

    ive never had anything blow up on my car. it's lightly modded and i keep it up to date with all maintenance. i've never launched it or dumped the clutch but i have taken it to the track once and the autox course.

    treat your car nicely and it will treat you nicely

    Well, everybody drives differently, so wear items are going to be all over the map. Personally, my 9 year old bugeye has been bulletproof for the ~20k miles I've had it. It's at 95k now and the only repair (other than when I t-boned) was a worn-out radiator hose that got a tear in it. I replaced the clutch as well, but I blame driving habits for that, not the car.

    Other than the aforemetioned items, every single thing is rock solid, as you should expect out of any modern car.

    You should definitely buy a Prius, they're really good on gas and the styling has improved over the years. It's suprisingly quick and fiesty, it doesn't quite turn on a dime it's more like a nickel, but still we're just splitting hairs here.

    These are the guys I hang out with, they don't except many imports unless you can hang. I plan on upping this subaru like crazy, I just want to know whats the order I need to upgrade parts. (stages) Thats why I'm depending on finding someone in norcal/this forum to help me mod. I don't need to know if I drive slow forever nothing will break. Thats why I'm leaning more on getting an evo because I have a lot of friends that can help.
