well me and sickfinga are having problems of my future car
i dont have any problems with either one.. except wrx inside looks like a toy box (hummer1) UGLY!! but plus side to that car is SPEED!!

Its as easy as pie, WRX if u want speed, and RSX if u want looks. I hope by RSX you mean the type S

yea the new WRX mogie posted is awesome! get that! i heard some bad things, they are small but annoying bout the current wrx..like while driving you'll notice the steering wheel shakes, not little tiny vibration but u can literally see it, and yes the old WRX does have a cheap looking interior...but the new one is totally off the hook! plus its AWD and smokes s2k!

that's a very hard decision indeed
Here's a basic on the spot direct comparison-

Pros of the WRX:

Turbo power!
AWD
Can be crazy modded easily
Can probably be taken off road a bit (or snow driven)
If you like hood scoops and rally lights then *th-up*
VERY nice handling
Not considered ricey (as often)
Designed to be a sports car/rally car

Cons of the WRX

Smaller than what it looks like in pictures
AWD (drivetrain power loss)
More expensive than RSX
Parts can be expensive, especially for AWD components
Crocodile Dundee

Pros of the RSX:

Cost
Cheap Mods and Parts
6 Speed!
Slightly more room than WRX
Nice straight line speed
Looks great with a body kit!
It's a Honda

Cons of the RSX:

It's no type-s! (unless you're thinking of those??)
FWD
Got Rice?
Looks ugly without a body kit (sorry, it really does!)
No Turbo (why can't more companies include a turbo!!)
Mediocre in winter time
It's a Honda


I am still going to side with the WRX though
i just love boost!

new STI will cost around 50k, I don;t think it is a good choice at that price.

i would actually rather have an impreza. not a wrx. it still has the 4wd but it won't cost you an arm and a leg*th-up*

Well I went to Thunderhill Raceway last saturday (its only a 30 min drive away:D ) And I saw at least a dozen or more wrx's going around the track, they were doing pretty damn good. Then when I thought it was over, there were more of them that showed up to rip up the rally course nearby........in conclusion get a wrx. Those things were off the hook
