    UH OH!!!!!
    I've always liked the older 2.5 rs (03 and earlier). Before the WRX, the 2.5 was Subaru's sports car......so if I was gonna get one I'd get a 99-01....plus they're like 10 grand.
    I could be wrong........but....160 hp +/-........0-60 in like 7+ seconds.

    i don't think its hard to learn on the rex... i think it would be easier since the clutch play is much better than other cars. i learned on a protege5 and the clutch was deep and 'gripped' so close to the 'fully depressed' state. the rex is shorter and its gripping point is much more predictable. that being said though, i still think it's a better idea to learn on another car, just so mistakes are not at the expense of a sweet tranny heh. maybe it won't be so hard on the tranny/clutch since you sorta know how to drive stick already.

    Don't let it bother you.
    I still stall time to time when I'm not carefull...

    Just practice and get a feel of the clutch meet point.
    You shouldn't have any problem driving Rex!!

    Good luck!

    If I learned to drive stick, ANYONE can!!!

    Trust me, you'll regret it if you don't drive stick. Besides, being able to drive a manual looks good on your resume. lol
