Well with my LS totaled i need a new ride. Iv loved the STi ever since it came out. However, brand new, the STi is now pricey after taxes. Im under the impresstion that the EVO is cheeper by about 1-1.5 grand. I have not drivin either car but i know the specs for both of them. My question for those of you that have experience with these cars is if its worth cheeping out and settling for the Evo or going the extra mile and breaking the bank on a STi? Things i love about the STi are, 6 speed, DCCD, 2.5 with a SYMMETRICAL drivtrain, only 14.5 lbs of boost and 300 lb feet, vs only 5 gears, unequal length drive shafts, HIGH stock boost of 19.5, smaller motor, less power out of the box. If i go for the STi then id have to put maybe 27 down and pay off the rest in bite size bits. 29-31,000 is the budget im working with. The STi is hitting the 33s and im not too sure about the Evo. What do you guys think?
