Let me get this straight. The STi is quicker to 60 by a pretty fair margin, out pulls the Evo in 5-60, 30-50, 50-70. Was within 3/10ths of a second on the road course and 2/10ths on the dirt of the EVO on lap times which is a wash as far as I'm concerned, has a substantially nicer interior, better reliability, better powerplant and the only major gripes were steering wheel ratio and off throttle undrsteer. Did I miss something?
I think if you have to live with the car day in and day out the Subaru is the clear choice, but for those who will spend time at the local autoX and track days the EVO may be a better choice.
