still love it?

hey guys, so ive been on here for a good two months listening to everyone itch bout things such as the recaro staple coming out and dash rattles and such

so my question is for guys who've had the car for a year or so

if you could go back and buy a different car would you and why?
if so what would u buy?

reason for my question is because i wana see if im gonna love this car more after i buy it/mod it or will i start hating it for its "discomforts"

An STi

Just not a Mitsu, ever again, unless it is used and well over 30k, and I'm prepared to deal with the... consequences. Then maybe I'd pick up a IX for a track car... maybe.

X is a great car for sure, but I won't buy one that is within "warranty" range, Mitsu screwed me over, and I'm never giving that up.

Still love it. Nothing quiet compares to the way an Evo drives to be honest.

Will be a year in May and I think it's by far the best vehicle I've had. This thing handles like a dream! and looks mean as hell! We've laughed, we've cried. But no regrets.

Still love it. Only bad thing is the OCD it causes (aka mod fever)

I've had my GSR since 02/01/09, and like all cars it's got it's faults, but I'm still loving it....much better than my modded out 2007 WRX.

Compaired to my old Subaru, my Evo X handles better (even with it's just about stock suspension), way less rattles & road noise (thanks to the full frame windows), and with the Stage 1 Perrin tune my X feels quicker/faster than my old Stage 2 WRX.

All and all I need an AWD vehicle up here in Mass, and since I have always perferred driving a "sporty" vehicle, my only choices really were the STI or the Evo X. I test drove both cars, and both cars were awesome, but IMO Subaru really screwed the pooch with the redesign of the 2008 STI...I just don't like hatchbacks...period.

In the end the Evo's new body style, the fact that it's slightly quicker around the track than the STI, and the 0% financing swayed me to buy the Evo.
