Ok guys, I have narrowed down my search. In my last thread I introduced myself and asked a few questions, which were met with great answers! (This might be the nicest forum I have ever been a part of)
Now, I have a couple of other questions and I know its been asked a million times, is it worth the extra coin for the STI...blah blah, Im not going to ask that.
This past weekend I was able to sit in a 2012 STI, first time I have ever sat in a Subbie. I was nervous I would not fit and be uncomfortable. I felt great in the seats. Took if for a short drive, maybe 5 miles. The engine pulled very well and shifts were nice as well. LOVED the car, HATED the wing!
The other issue is I havent been able to drive a WRX. Do the have near the same feel, power, pull through the powerband, or is it a huge noticeable difference as to how the two cars drive.
I have 2 options of what I am going to do, and would like some input as to what the best option would be.
OPTION 1: Order a 2014 WRX limited with SSS, all weathers and maybe homelink, total cost around 30k
OPTION 2: Buy a used 2012 STI with 20k or less miles, without the leather, but a bit more fun to drive with a total cost of about 34k
This will be my DD, and I drive a whopping 5 miles to a from work everyday.
I dont race, I dont hot rod around, but I loved the way the STI felt and drove, and if the WRX is very similar than I think it is a no brainer.
