actually, STi's look a little rediculous, too rally for me.
the WRX is nicer than you might think on the inside. The STi is even better.

Yea... I can take pics of the inside of mine tomorrow. It's minimalistic and certainly not fancy. The cockpit is nice and who cares what the passenger side is like right? haha

i can also take some pics of my sti, i'll be paying or it for a long time, but i guess that's what a jobs for, but it's a perfect car for all around performance, style, and comfort. the only other car i've owned that was jsut as nice was a vw r32 (crashed, but not my fault) which also has an amazing vw interior and tons of power and control, and looks are just icing on the cake

both, the 1.8t is nicer for those who will mod the car, if you keep it stock, the VR6 is more powerful, although the 1.8t is still funner to drive...

the GTI handled better than the cobalt, but the VW still suffers from its infamous body roll...

my car is a woldsburg jetta, which has the exact interior of the GTI, and the VW sport springs, which are for that year (2001) eibach or H&R....but it still has body roll


to get say, my car, to be better than the cobalt ss, your looking at $500 to get it to 205/210 hp/tq....

a set of lowering springs an billstein sport shocks will run 600, cmaber plates, 150, and alignment, 65...

your looking at 1350 ish plus 12000 for the car, and it will out handle, out perform the cobalt, you can easily find it, and its overall, nicer....

just my 2 cents....

i was in your shoes, and am going this route...only i got a steal on my car
