A WRX STi Spec C in Rally BLUE with Golden wheels will do wonders for me. I Love the white one too! Mitsu has little or no character-- upmarket lancer.. they make TVs and Refrigerators too!

The Evo VIII is what Jeremy would call, a Pentium Processor with wheels. Easy to drive and master. It can make a novice feel like a pro.

But, if you're a real driver, seeking real driving skills, then i'm afraid the Subaru has it all.

While the Evo VIII tends to control the driver and dictate terms, the Subaru is at your mercy and that is what i like about that car.

But, no doubt, the Evo VIII is the faster car here and probably the car to own.

The FQ400 is said to have awesome turbo lag, and a clutch which stalls. However, it seems like the majority is for Mitsubishi...but I'll go in for the Subaru Impreza WRX.

That's Jeremy Clarkson for you. Only a fool would be dumb enuf to drive a FQ400 in overdrive at 35 mph. I say, people who complain of turbo lag don't know how to drive one.

I love the EVO and the customizable upgrades make it a hot favorite.
After 2 fast 2 furious, the respect that i have for a Nissan Skyline has increased.

Lancer EVO close to my heart and definitely has my vote
