But for someone who would prefer more performance then luxury , the STI would be a good platform to start with cause it can easily outperform a stock M3 for a lot less money and still be a good daily driver ! Personnally I love my M3 , but if I did'nt had the budget for it , the STI would probably be my choice for a trackable daily driver , instead of a Mustang for exemple ! In fact , no , it would be a B8 S4 that I would buy , back in 08 when I bought my 09 STI there was not that option but now it's an easy choice between those two !!
For a track car I'd want a RWD car. I think that makes you a much better driver in the end. But that's just me.
