To buy a 08' STi Hatch or 12' WRX Hatch?

Postby Climic » Wed Mar 14, 2018 7:33 pm

So I'm looking to buy a new Subaru, and i have a few options but just wanted to ask opinions on:
08' Subaru STI R-spec hatch - 130xxx kms
Or
12' Subaru WRX hatch - 65xxx kms

I know people say WRX good Daily but Sti handles better, they are both around the same price 21k


Which one and why give me your opinions.

Cheers

Sti if you want superior equipment as stock, or the wrx for newer and less km's.

You can mod the wrx to handle as good and better than the sti, and also mod the sti. Basically with mods you can get similar handling. It comes down to the better drive line in the sti along with much better brakes. But the wrx will be less harsh to drive.

Such a hard decision to choose between them. Ive got to consider longevity of the car if I hold it for atleast 3-5 years.

Leaning towards the wrx version for low mms, but want to be convinced that the STI is worth it instead.

Forget the ks and get the sti...130k is nothing..The rex is due for timing belt + $1500+... The sti has already been done.. It's a no brainer....

Even though I've a wrx hatch...
I'd definitely go for the sti, that comes better equipped with bigger brakes wheels, cooler rear spoiler, ect...
