    Well it's a long and sad story lol but my past cars have always been domestics and v8s. I bought the evo not knowing too much about imports and it was already heavily modded but not tuned correctly because of the vta bov. It ended up blowing up not too long after I bought it. I bought an engine but things went sour with the company I was going through ( not sure if I should throw out names on here lol ). I pretty much said screw it, I want to start fresh and I sold the evo and here I am. I am now pretty heavily educated about how sensitive ecu's are with these type of cars but I'm here to learn a lot more.

    Sorry to hear about your experience. I love the Evo platform, but am really enjoying my WRX so far.

    I just bought my WRX almost 3 weeks ago and i was thinking about the 2014 WRX an a 2010 EVO. The EVO was a sick car and a tone of fun, but I thought the WRX felt better just for normal everyday driving and was still a tone of fun to drive. Glad to see your liking your WRX

    Ya I definitely felt that the evo was more of a track car and the wrx is a nice daily driver.
