    Why would you buy a new one... they depreciate like a rock.

    Buy a 2006 with 5-10k miles on it.

    Buying a used performance car doesn't strike me as an intelligent thing to do if you can afford a new one…unless you're prepared to replaced abused components right from the start, which could very well make it cost as much as the new one.


    Furthermore, depreciation is only a valid concern for people who plan to resell the car. We don't know that he does :dunno:

    I tend to sell my cars after 1 year. :o

    If I get an STI, I'm gonna try to keep it for a while, though :noes:

    oh and btw, if you are under 25 years old or don't have a near flawless driving record, forget about it. insurance on sti/evo is bananas.
