Hey man, I won't sugarcoat it for ya. Whatever you do now, you're going to loose money no matter what. If u got a really really really good deal on the lancer, u may be able to come out even, but I doubt it. When dealing with new cars, you're always gonna loose money, and thats how the story goes. However, new WRXs go for like 24-25. I got my new 03 that was still on the lot for 21,700 which is pretty good. But yea, the WRX and lancer OZ arent even the same car. WRX is the most amazing car ever, and if its really worth losing money, go for it. I promise you wont be dissappointed.
