    Thats a really lame argument.


    If the S2000 was a few grand cheaper (for a new one) and came as a coupe it's possible that I'd be driving one right now instead of the Z.

    You should spend a few extra g's to get a 02 STI rather then a WRX.

    Oh and I don't know why you compare the WRX to the S2000. The MSRP of the S2000 is around $35,000 which would make it more comparable to the STI. This being said, the STI is faster, has AWD, and looks better IMHO.

    I am sorry but I don't think the S2000 is a very good looking car. The Saturn Sky looks better then it...I guess I am just weird but I love the look of the WRX/STI more then even a vet.(I know that seems impossible but the only reason I wouldn't pass up a vet would be to sell it to get money AND a STI. ) Now a Dodge Viper and a Porche Carrera GT looks better in my eyes but most would agree with that. I hate toy look-a-like cars. (meaning all of the tiny cars out there including S2000 and Z3; It is just my preference but you can't just say any car looks better as a fact.(expect for the Scion xb...that thing is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ugly ))

    So if you compare the cars that should be compared, the STI looks much more appealing.

    Oh but I would say a 02 WRX would be a slight downgrade overall...a 06 on the other hand!!!!!!!would be a bit better.

    The 06 is still going to have a crappy transmission, won't handle as good, and won't be as fast as the S2000. I'd say thats a downgrade.

    However the WRX would be an uprgade in practicality if that what you want.

    The WRX and S2000 are being compared because he already has the S2K.

    I'm not quite quite understand how you can like the looks of a impeza more than the S2000 or Z3 nor do I understand why you consider those toy like and not the little 4 door with a boy racer hoodscoop and spoiler. I guess that just goes to show how subjective aesthetics are. I mean I liked my WRX despite the way it looked not for how looked.

    You're 17 years old and drive a Taurus that you probably didn't even buy yourself. What do you know about being a man, boy?

    First off I never said a 06 would still not be a downgrade. I said it would be a bit better refering to an older model WRX. also he doesn't have a WRX so it would be more valid to compare a S2000 to a STI and I am guessing he can afford a 02 STI if he has a 02 S2000.

    Second, I mean toy like as in small. they look like some rc car you would buy. Call me crazy but I just don't like the look of small cars. Well...I do like how the Lotus Elise looks, so not all small cars.

    I mean I liked my WRX despite the way it looked not for how looked.
    What? I like my WRX for how it looks and how it is looked on by others. (if that is what you meant) If they think it's rice I laugh at them. If they think it's nice then that is good. I could have bought a mustang or mazda but the thing is that I love the way my WRX looks. What you call "boy racer" I call style and additude. Only wish I could have afforded a STI.

    I didn't buy it, it was sitting in my driveway for 3 years.... Should I have bought it off my mom?
    Most people would agree that they would rather have a STi than a s2000.

    You a better DD? Get a Civic... seriously! If you want a fun DD, get a Civic Si 4 door. WRX or STi arent much of a daily driver, especially once you start modding it.

    For the SECOND time, there is no such thing as a USDM 2002 STi. It was introduced to the states in 2004.

    I was wondering why nobody was picking up on your first comment.

    I traded my S2000 for a WRX...and dont regret it for a minute.

    I dont think you would be disappointed with the WRX. More room, a lot more comfortable, AWD vs. the seemingly tailslide happy S2000, generally less expensive to modify.

    Different strokes for different folks.

    I was a bit rude before I apologize. It must have been the beetus acting up.
