Advice on buying a scooby

I have saved up for a year now and am ready to buy a scooby and needed advice from scooby owners.
I have considered buying an evo 8/9 but i found them difficult to drive compared to the scooby.
During my last test drives i couldnt drive the scoobies properly so could someone tell me the difference between the performance of a 05 sti ppp and a type r ( my current vehicle) as i do not want to pay a lot of money if the performance is not a massive difference.
Btw how much should i be paying for a 05 sti ppp, about 40-45k miles. cambelt, recent service and 12 months mot and tax.. average condition with a mildly rusty exhaust.. 3 owners.
id rather buy a 07 2.5 sti ppp but its 460 tax a year scares me..but if the performance is worth it i will consider it .

Prices are all over ATM, with fuel and insurance prices people are being put off so you can pick some bargains up, Auto trader etc is a good place to get a feel for the current market.
