on the WRX... I just wished the 2 doors were available. The damn dealers don't even know whats going on with those. The front end is wicked [censored], they just need to work on the rear, it's too bland. It's one bad ass car tho. Gotta love german engineered engines.

WRX is smaller than the SVT, ugly too in comparison. Performance is better for the WRX.

1. It's Japanese (reliable)
2. It's tried and true (long company history and racing)
3. It's very now, and many aftermarket parts avaliable
4. You can easily get the cool rally style headlights
5. Prodrive makes THE WRC body kit (looks great and geat quality)
6. It's new,warranty,resale value,etc.
7. No FORD recalls!!!!
8. Great handling and power and AWD
9. Cool seats,MOMO wheel,even cool factory options (exhaust,short shifter,etc)

I'd have to go for it,sorry SVT guys.

I love that car. I've driven it before and it has great acceleration and a turbo and AWD. Turbo's respond better to mods, and when the WRX aftermarket does truly open up it will be amazing. With the Michigan winter I would take WRX over my Tour any day of the week. I don't think it's fugly at all! But if Ford ever decides to bring ove the Cosworth turbo AWD Focus I'll be all over that Like white on rice!

The WRX is awesome...for an Imprezza. That's the problem with it. The construction is just plain cheap. If you really like it, though, buy a two year old Imprezza with AWD (Subarus generally depreciate faster than almost any other make) and do whatever mods that suit you. You'll have a much better looking car and you'll save a bundle.

I am goin' to stay out of this one. My friend has an 11 sec. WRX w/out NOS and with about $1500 in aftermarket.

Oh yeah, it gets pretty good air also.

Sorry but that will never happen unless he made everything himself and paid for material. Goto this site, www.turboxs.com Look in the top left corner to see a 11 second wrx. You can see what they have installed on it.

I say you wait and buy a Lancer EvoVII, 276 turbocharged stallions. Suposedly those things will keep up with a Z06. 0-60 in 4.6 seconds, fast!

Low end, WRX... High end, SVT! Ever seen a WRX in action over 100mph? You haven't? That's right, it is somewhere a mile back behind the SVT.
