    need advice fxt or wrx or sti

    hey whats up everyone..soon to be sellin my gti but am unsure what to buy???
    im torn between the three for some obvious reasons..
    pro
    wrx-cheapest out of three,easiet to find
    Con
    wrx-after some semi serious modding have to possibly replace tranny void warrenty yadda
    pro
    FXT-sleeper with good potential and cheap on insurance
    con
    fxt- lil pricier than wrx and harder to find in stick,void warrenty yadda yadda
    PRO
    STI-no need to mod for a while all the power i need for now therefore no voidage at first lol
    CON
    STI-higher monthly payments and higher insurance

    You might wind up finding an older version of the STi for your price range. For what you are looking for, you do not want to void any warranties, want it affordable and still give you the satisfaction... The STi will be the one.

    BTW, forgive my ignorance, but what is the FTX?

    If the STI is a doable option then get it. You wont have to mod it and the tranny will hold up fairly well. I'm looking now and semi considering trading in my 06 wrx.

    I wouldnt buy a used wrx, sti, evo etc.

    I would in a heart beat buy a used civic, accord, escort etc.

    Sure not all of them are, that would be an absurd assumption, sure not ALL sti's are beat on, but the majority have been through their paces. At the very least I'd have to know the previous owner and all maitance records before I'd even consider the idea. To many horror stories of modded-returned to stock cars causing alot of headaches.

    don't buy the FXT in stick because it will be worth less if you decide to get rid of it in the future. most SUV's are not stick, so it will sit at the dealer lot for months, and they will not give you a good price for it.

    if an STi is out of your price range, get over it: don't buy a used one unless it has really low miles. i just can't imagine anyone babying an STi for too long.

    that only leaves one choice....
    embattled, we prevail...only victory exhaled.
