Howver if you insist on buying an auto, then I would try to consider an evo ( woud never put my self in that position though) , however its an easier target for your case.

By thee way am based in Dubai, and can help you source out parts if needed ( as an act of support), am not a tuner nor own a tuning place

But can help if needed.

Hsein
that actually sounds reasonable because the EVO MR comes stanrdard automatic. it'll have more options to modding it than a auto-sti that is not fully available everywhere.

I know in the US the sedan is approximately 3000 USD cheaper than the hatchback. The hatch does not have the option of the base enkei wheels and a couple other things if I recall correctly.

I would love an auto STI. Think about the stoplight to stoplight battles... untouchable! Just solid waves of torque, never a blown shift... Why do think serious drag racers use automatics?


I know it's heresy, but a CVT would be even better. Accelerating off the line, RPMs to max power, and hold.... no revving, just solid, steady acceleration. Cool.
