DILEMMA. Please chime in!
Hi there, I'm new to the forums, new to Subarus. I am very excited about owning a WRX/STI soon and need some wisdom. My choice right now are:
2010 WRX STI (red)
23k miles, 1 year left of warranty (planning on purchasing extended warranty for $1500)
No mods, just tint, mudflap
Owned by an older gentleman who is looking to get a Cadillac
$28500 + tax = $30000 (roughly)
2011 WRX (base model)
30k miles, extended 6 year warranty
$21000 + tax = $22500 (roughly)
My uses are:
1) Daily driver
2) Spirited driving through the mountains (live in Northern California)
3) Towing a motorcycle to the tracks (less than 700 lbs)
I'm more of a bike guy, but can definitely appreciate the performance in cars and I'm hoping this dive into the WRX/STI world will be a solid start.
STI or WRX? Is it worth the extra dough? Thoughts? Thanks in advance!
