Been there, done that. Performance-wise, MR>STi. For daily driving and all practical purposes, STi>MR. End of story...

Well I dunno. J/K

STi. I just find it to be a more driver-friendly kind of car. Their 0-60s are near identical, and they have about the same performance (actually the STi has 22 more hp if I remember correctly). Really they are both great cars. It is up to driver preference.

I agree... personally I would much rather drive the STI than the Evo8 . However right now I cant afford either one so I'll just stick with my EG-6.

Me two. I was just saying that the two cars are good since we could have the potential to argue this forever, just like several threads like this one that are in this board.

That's weird, I wonder why the EVO VIII won SCC car of the year it's first year in the U.S. (along with the STi).

Hmmm. I've read that the Evo is very expensive to maintain? Is the STi the same case? The evo barely nudges out the 350z for maintainence per mile. And the 350z is pretty expensive to maintain, clutch is a little weak.

Yea I would imagine the EVO would be alot higher maintenence, ESPECIALLY if you don't break it in correctly. It WILL turn into an oil burner and money pit. I've heard of alot of cars breaking from driving them hard and dealerships being pissed and not covering certain things. Let's not forget the SoloII/AutoX warranty voiding that goes on. I would imagine the STi is alot more reliable in that sense, since they hand out SCCA SoloII/AutoX signup sheets at dealerships with their WRX's (at least to my friend when he got his).
