Re: Advice please

Must admit, it does look nice and has great mileage for the year. Worth a closer look.



Would still take a look at some STi's though. Grin factor is a whole lot bigger.

Re: Advice please

I have to agree a wrx is a great first step(imho) but a sti is where you will always want to be, You know they are that little bit tougher/better so will always feel wanting,
I cant say if a wrx bugeye would have felt as good as my sti did standard but a remapped wrx is a lot of fun,
Can you insure a sti cheap/easy enough? If you can then stick to your guns and be patient is my advice.
