Yes, you'll be 100% happy... unless you develop a case of STi envy, in which case you'll be 75% happy (give or take). The 2012 WRX comes with a nice turbo (VF52) and has plenty of modding potential. The body styles are really cool too with the flared fenders and all. Are you looking at the sedan or the hatch?
There are really no significant cons to the 2012 as it's not the first model of the third generation (2008 was). The biggest con of any year WRX are the "weak" 5 speed transmissions. At stock power levels and when they're not abused, they're great, but add enough power and play around a little too much and they tend to snap (ask me how I know). The good news is that there are plenty of options for transmission upgrades. Your first mod should be tires.
