Also, if you haven't already, test drive a 370Z. I personally find them to be a bit rough and not refined.

Good luck with your search!
Just want to chime in about the WRX/STi performance comparisons; people tend to quote the two's 0-60 times quite frequently with the allusion that they even in a straight line, but the main reason for the similar 0-60 times has more to do with their gearing than anything. 1/4 mi times are still a good deal different.

The WRX is still a great buy. I was (still am) hugely into the hatch myself. Not too big on the sedan though, even post-facelift with the widebody.

The 370Z has always been a car I've liked but could never see myself owning. The NVH issues wouldn't bother me so much as all the other choices that are available that I'd rather have.
