Alright I'm considering both the impreza and the RSX. Bassically this is
how I see it.
Leather seats (big plus for me)
Associations with Honda/Acura fanboys
AWD (I prefer it over FF)
Cloth seats only
Bug eyes are a bit sketchy
I'm having a lot of trouble deciding.
What I'm thinking of now is saving a up a bit more for an 04 impreza and putting in either STI or leather seats.
Subie gets my vote. Don't get me wrong, I love Honda. It's just the sound of that flat 4 banger is heavenly.:drool:
WRX all the way.
Leather seats suck, maintenance is a bitch, the age quickly, and during the summer their scortching hot and the winter their cold enough to give you herpes.:orglaugh:
WRX all the way not even a contest. Its gonna be easier to make power with because of the larger displacement and the turbo and once your making power your not going to be limited by traction due to the FWD.
I'm with this guy.
Also, you can put leather on later.
since its 02 models. get the wrx!
now if it was hte later models. id have a hard time deciding.
i had an 02, i traded it off with my brother cause he wanted lower monthly payments. the 02 was alot funner ill tell you that. and i felt more comfortable in its interior. but i have alot of friends and im pretty tall my self, i need a 4 door.
I thought they where called boxer or punch engines. Is a flat engine the same thing?
flat-4 boxer-4 horizontally-opposed-4 :laughing:
theyre all the same
Now you have me confused, are you trying to say that the FWD setup somehow helps towards traction? If so, it's wrong, simple as that. FWD is only going to hamper the handling with the more power that's added, especially given that it's Turbo Charged :thumbs:
I think he means that in a WRX, you dont have to worry about that FWD+Power handling
I see what you're saying....I read his post again and it's sudenly alot clearer...I blame the lack of sleep, lol. Thanks for pointing that one out!
Scooby Doo all the way!:thumbs:
even if it is the bug eye:ohcrap:
wrx all the way. in my opinion awd cars are topps plus the wrx has alot
more power and leather sucks in the summer and the wrx in my opinion is one
of the best cars in the world i like the sti better than the plain wrx but
thats my oppinion plus u can get alot more power with a few mods and they
P.S the sound of that engine is a sound i would dump my girlfriend over and thats a fact
actually i was thinking about this the other day. Except i also had the Srt
4 in the mix.
The way it came out to me is
02 WRX (in silver preferably)
PROS: AWD, 4DR, Turbo, Bug Eye look (i like)
02 Type S: (only in the Copper/ orange color)
Pros, Styling, Honda/Acura reliability, nice interior
Cons: LOw Torque ( all hondas), FWD, HIgh
03 SRT 4 ( in yellow or copper/orange)
Pros; Exterior Styling, Turbo, 4 dr
Cons: FWD, CHEAP feeling interior, Truck like shifter
I got a wrx raced a friend with a type s i won, in 1/4 mile i had a car length ahead of him.
We already established that an AWD turbocharged car is faster than an FWD N/A car...Over a year ago. :banghead:
