This is a discussion on Vexed about car purchase within the New Member Hangout forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; I'd say that's a pretty decent trade in...

    Vexed about car purchase

    The car has another thing going against it... No extended armrest. Mine is always in the "up" position in my Rex. Why can't this be easy?

    Sounds to me like you have made up your mind that you want the STi. When I went to buy my car they had WRX's that I could have bought right there and I was tempted just because of the savings in money. The thing is though is that the STi was always what I wanted. When I had my 2.5i I always looked at WRX's and wished that I had bought one of those because I could have afforded it, but figured it wasn't the most economical decision for a college kid. I remembered that when I went to upgrade my car and I figured...What the heck...I can afford it and if I don't get it now I might never get it...

    I am sure you wouldn't regret your purchase, but you might regret not getting it when you look back on it if you don't.

    As far as the WRX being just as fast as the STi, sure it is...But the STi has a lot more potential if you want to do future modifications (obviously unless you just gut everything in the WRX...then we are talking about pretty much the same car and if that is what you are going to do then go for the cheaper WRX).

    Yeah... I saw a few places on ca with cheaper prices as well. I also saw other places with more expensive prices. Oh well, that is the curse of location for car buying! .

    Black STI, I think you completely understand me! . I am trying to explain this concept to my wife. I have shrines/collections of STI photos. I too was just trying to be practical saying, "I don't NEED a STI. There are a lot of things we don't need. I could probably get by with an 84 Pinto with a gas leak... That doesn't mean I am willing to

    I almost bought a black WRX after a test drive, but held off. Then I test drove an STI and purchased that. I can't say that that there where that many noticeable differences other than "STI" and the 6 speed tranny, but I am happy that I held out. Why? Because STI!

    I am going to pick up my black 2012 STI 5 door tomorrow! I finally am going to own a STI! Thanks everyone for the advice. I still can't believe I am getting rid of my WRX. I thought I would have it forever...
