I love the Subaru, but, I'm more of an EVO fan. Its has to be the EVO VIII for me.

I love the WRX, a good car to see. But compared with the EVO, it just blinds my vision.

among the two Evo VIII it is!

P.S. If you ask me about all rally cars, I'd take the Citroen or Peugeot for looks!!!

After watching this weeks Top Gear, i like the Evo8 even more. They tested the FQ400 against the Murcielago and guess what, the Lambo couldn't get away from it.

And yeah JC did power drifts on the Evo with one finger on the steering. That is good handling. And with a lap time of 1:24, it's leagues ahead of the Subaru.

My money is on the WRX STi,many say that the EVO is better,compared to the EVO the Impreza is an underdog,so wat,many times the underdogs come out successful.The SUBARU looks better n yea wat sounds better,the word SUBARU or MITSUBISHI???
Just feel Subaru has to think a lil bit more on its competition.Cmon SUBARUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Sorry, but the topic says EvoVIII vs Subaru WRX STi. hehe

As long as no model of the Evo 8 is mentioned, i think i'll stick to the FQ400. Even if you consider the FQ320, the Evo 8 still has the edge. And as Jeremy has said "The FQ 320 is the car to buy".

Default Scooby all the way!

The Sti's you get in most of the car markets in the world isn't really fair to Subaru. The US doesn't get a powerful enough version, although they do get the 2 ltr engine and most of europe get the Sti with the 2.5 ltr engine which isn't the engine Sti's are supposed to come with.

I think to truly justify a vote we have to take the real Impreza and the real Evo into consideration. Subaru has come out with a new model called S203 which is burning hot.. here is the link
http://www.rsportscars.com/eng/cars/impreza_s203.asp

So if we compare the S203 to the Evolution MR, you can see that the Scooby is much much better. In my opinion
