mmmmmmmmmm this could turn into a big topic on its own so heres my 100 word version - Having owned both (currently own an evo8) - To be honest they both have their strong and weak points..

This evo 8 reminds me very much of my 99 uk turbo in power delivery and roughness. My 04 wrx was completly different (more relaxed and subtle) - The best way to describe the base model evo 8 would be against the STI...

EVO8 against STI Power in the same region, intercooler spray, deeper bucket seats, brembo discs and pads as standard... (wrx against the same year doesnt come with these items) Personally think the Evo handles far superior against the impreza as im almost definatly pushing this car harder around corners / roundabouts than the impreza (even if its all in my head!)

EVO requires servicing every 4.5k miles ouch!
Impreza requires servicing every 10k miles

My Evo is currently running around 16 to 18 mpg
My Impreza was running around 18 to 20 mpg (wrx)

Insurance group 20 for both cars so shopping around is still seriously needed!

Both cars are awsome in every / different ways.... Both in my opinion are a true working mans performance car..

Both Impreza and Evo depreciate in the same manner (maybe evo holds a little better at this moment in time - dont think it will last though)
