ive been a member here for about a year, and clubwrx for about 4. i skipped buying an 03 wrx for a bike, scared of blowing the tranny. now im saving for a black or white 05 sti. yesterday my roommate came home with a brand new PSM 06 wrx. i hate him. lol. the new front end is growing on me, i think its best in white or cgm. my question is, would you rather pick an 06 wrx brand new (and of course go to stage 2) or buy a used sti and put it to stage 2. im thinking in terms of gas mileage, cost, new vs used, etc. i love the drivetrain on the sti, knowing autox wont break it and all id want is stage 2 and id be happy for a while. wrx would want springs, stg 2, wheels, short throw. so since u all have the sti, what are you thoughts? thanks guys.
