2011 Subaru WRX Sedan

A buddy of mine has one, mildly modded, COBB stage 2 tune, coilovers, COBB downpipe and intake, plus SPC exhaust, this thing pulls hard like my old 335i would in the down end, so, one day he asked me to make a few late night runs with him to see how his car stands. We went about 3 runs from 20-120 mph, and I could never pull away from him, perfect shift every gear, (I had a passenger, 185lbs), and I have to admit I wasn't surprised, the 4wd definitely has it traction advantages. This is actually the first time I've done this since my G35 days haha, anyways we're planning to take both of our cars to the track soon to see how we really stack up to each other, but personally, if things get better financially I'd love to get a WRX sedan for a daily, wide range of aftermarket support and drives really good as well, best bang for the buck in the sport sedan market imo, thoughts?

Yea Subaru's are great. They're not on the same level as M3s but they're cheap, reliable, great in bad weather, and pretty fun to drive too. For 25k or so I think its one of the best cars you can get for that price.

WRX is one of the best new cars out there performance wise for the $. If I had to spend 25-30k on new, that would be it. Bulletproof too. I had a Legacy GT stage 2 with 35k hard driven miles, never a hiccup.

Mitsubishi Evo's and Subaru Wrx's are the best cars for under $40k.
