    STi (04'-05') OR WRX (06' -07')

    Just looking for some opinions. I'm stuck on the STi but want to know if it makes more sense to just get a newer WRX TR. My budget is about 25K for the car. I plan on moderate modifications. I'm leaning towards the STi but how much would I need to put into it to get STi performance.

    Anyone?

    IMO, I would get an '05 STi in a heartbeat.

    first off....the 03 has a different front end from the 04-05's.....and second... i think you meant to say that the best looking bodies are one the 02-03's!!!

    +1 ... make that a nanosecond for me. IMO 2005 was the best WRX year so far.

    Oh, I forgot ... welcome to the club!

    I'll go heavily against the grain here...ALTHOUGH STi/STI is the better car, I LOVE a brand new car. I'd rather not have someone else's problems. I just picked up my 06 limited WRX yesterday and boy do I love it. I guess it depends on what you come from when you get the car. I loved my 02 Celica GT but going to this seems lightyears different in every sense. There's not to many people who have the ability to have a brand new nice car, let alone a brand new car. BTW, i'm prepared to get owned in a debate if it happens.

    I just bought an 06 WRX last month and looked at on 05 sti as well. I went with the 06 cause it was new, and I knew it hadn't been beat up by some knucklehead. If you can find one that you know the history on (and trust), get the 05. I couldn't, so I got the WRX. Yes it lacks the many cool things that make an STI trick, but I am very happy with the car.
    Plus, once I am out of warranty, it WILL make as much HP/TQ as a STI. For now, I am more than content.
    Good luck either way.

    If there hadn't been the perfect 06 Wagon the day I wanted it at the perfect price, I'd be heaping miles on an 05 STi right now.





    Had Subaru done the right thing and made an STI wagon for USDM consumption, I wouldn't wake up in a cold sweat screaming about EVO wagons every other night.



    If you aren't a wagoner, and you can find a well maintained 05 STi, jump all over it like it's a live hand grenade in front of your mother...

    That's not a word. That's an acronym for...like...4 words.

    Now, this man loves his wagons, but it's not like the EVO wagon is available in this country either.
