    Need Help Deciding!

    Selling my 2008 WRX due to the body style, loved it but honestly I like the 05-07 and 11-13 better.

    Now here's my problem, I either can get this 2007 WRX or 2005 STI, STI has 90k, Wrx has 60k
    Which should I choose? I also like the 07 style a bit more but the STI raw power is also awesome.
    Any reasons I should go one over the other? STi is a bit pricier, but not too crazy.
    Both completely bone stock, and clean histories.

    Personal opinion is 05 STI, becauseSTI
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Haha, I'm only 20 and don't work at google or anything too crazy for income.
    It would be a dream but, reality is alas a pain in my ass.

    +1. At 20 yrs old, this is probably a very good idea if you haven't already done it. The premium might help to make up your mind.

    Go with the WRX, my insurance company does not recognize the WRX as anything other than an Impreza. You will also get better fuel economy (barely I know), and it is just a more practical daily vehicle. My 2.

    If the insurance premium for the STi rather than WRX isn't too crazy, I'd go with the STi purely because of the 6spd transmission. But you have to guage whether the price differences are worth .5 of a Liter and a better tranny (among other things like Brembos).
