    Mustangs have always been my fav, go with the cobra... Though my 91gt sleeper would run circles around both cars...

    It's real cheap to mod up mustangs...

    To the above statement, I already have a corvette

    Ive narrowed my decisions down to these 2 cars. The Cobra is nice because its already powerful, and has tons of room for upgrades.

    The WRX is an awesome handling car and a lot of fun to drive. For around 2000-3000 I can get it up near the 300whp mark (thats HP to the wheels)...but the tranny in those cars starts to hate you. I think its the only thing holding me back actually, is the tranny.

    The EVO is not under 20k, and if i were to spend that much on a car like this, id still opt for the STi.

    yeah, definitely go with the stang bro... i'd take the mustang gt over a wrx, but if it's a cobra there'd be no comparison (in my book anyway)

    i hear ya, its a divided crowd between the two. its like the camaro vs mustang crowd.

    EVO's are a bit more rare here as well...just have always been partial to the imprezza, even before the WRX.

    Not sure about in the UK, but mitsubishi, as far as the company is concerned, is really lacking here in the US.

    If you already have a vette, then get the WRX (we're talking STi here yes?). The EVO is sweet but if you're talking everyday driver I'd take the WRX over the EVO.

    Nope, the non-STi (regular WRX)

    This is going to be a somewhat cheaper (under 20k) daily driver to make my long drive. Regardless, I still need/want a fast car for the trip.

    I'd still go with the WRX since you already have a vette.

    Personally, I think the WRX is a car with no class, no style, no design no nothing....it's a box. Ugly as hell !!!

    So, i guess that leaves you with the cobra....

    The Cobra without question.........

    Either way, you're going to have a common looking car..... why not build one yourself?

    wrx. i got one. put alot of mods. love it. it was my first car and i've had it for almost 3 years. for the money there is nothing better. sickest handling, engine is very strong and reliable, and dude-man im sorry but it is far from ugly. 375 hp from the engine and it is still a daily driving car.
