Pros of 2.5RS: AWD, 5 sp, 160 hp 160 ft lb tq & four doors. Easily modifyable with STi parts. Relatively cheap on insurance. Cons: it's not the real model I want, I'd have to drive far to get one (unless my dad's friends can pull one out) It's not quite as fast as some cars in it's price range. Pros of 2000 SI: Nice ass car, cheap (hp per dollar), extremely reliable, and relatively quick. Cons: More expensive on insurance than the Subey (2 door sport coupe). It's used & my brother already owned a red 00 SI so I feel like I'm almost copying him.
