I almost got an '04-'05 STi, but I don't know how long I'll be making a lot of $$$, since I'm still in Business School.
My Reasons for not getting the STi:
1) I know I'd get in too much trouble with one
2) I hate being in debt, I'm 25 this month and I've never been in debt until now; Credit score is 762
3) It's still a WRX! Rally inspired car, gave birth to the STi, it's a quick car.
4) Way more stealthy (if you want it that way).
If I knew I could have a consecutive 6 years making what I'm making now, I'd get the STi, or Evo
One guy put it best when I pulled up next to his STi in my work truck before I made my decision, "Yeah, it's so F----ing fun to drive, but it'll make you pee blood. The ride is stiff!"
