Hmm...looks like I'm the first here to vote for the WRX! Well, its the scooby for me. they are both comparable in performance (discounting the 0.1 sec here or there), but somehow the Scooby has a bit more character than the current VIII.

Dont u wanna worry being alone rtech...U got another one of True Subaru fans here supporting the car...thats me!! Its not bout the car alone,,its about the driver and the tech team behind the brute machine...Evo VIII is as awesome piece of engineering but as some one long said " ITS THE CHARACTER AND NOT THE APPEARANCE THAT DOES THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE".

Another subaru fan here... the blue WRX STi with that dark golden alloy wheels rocks. Have had that as my wall paper for long.

Having said that, yesterday night i spotted a **subaru** forestor on airport road. Guess the owner rebadged that machine to its original name

Evo 8 here, love that styling. It's got the power, the performance and the handling. "Scooby Doo" can keep all the character it wants.

I like cars that cross the finish line first.

Also EVO VIII should be compared with WRX(as in title) and with WRX STi(as in poll). WRX STi is top end, plain WRX comes second. Atleast externally STi has that huge rear spoiler. Plain WRX comes with a smaller one.

Similar line up in mitsubishi too. Top one is MR edition or some thing like that i guess. EVO VIII is second in line which has 5 manual gear same as plain WRX. MR has 6 manual gear same as STi.
