If you get a WRX, that isn't thrashed to all hell, yer gonna wanna mod it as soon as you get it. It'll be another tricked out ride that prbably won't make a good DD - you ready for that?

Just use your 135. That 10K -11K you spend will not compensate for fuel efficiency. Also a WRX is not exactly fuel efficient. It probably gets about the same MPG as the 135.

In that case driving the truck would be the best solution

Subarus don't get good gas mileage. Fun? Yes. Great in the snow? Yes. Reliable? Yes. Either drive what you got or maybe look for an old Insight, had a buddy pick one up for cheap and he gets ridiculous mpg.
