B, I'd disagree with the FWD comparison. Most times, it's going to outhandle the STi.
But otherwise, you're on the money.
I'd also refer you back to the thread about Mitsushitty being on its last legs, and the success of the company being largely dependent on the success of the new (blech) Eclipse.

Two recalls already, I believe. Brakes yes, and something else I can't remember.
I also can't recall the last time Mitsushitty was in competition for Manufacturer Points in the WRC.

Well, don't go comparing the WRX to the EVO. You probably meant the STi. As far as I know, B is the only person on Hondaswap who has an STi. Celerity and I both have WRX's, but his is stock.
There are pros and cons to both the STi and EVO.
STi has more displacement (better acceleration out of turns, better stright line), better brakes, better interior. EVO has better cornering/handling, bigger turbo, FMIC.
Truthfully, they're both damn fine cars, and I'd be overjoyed to be able to afford/own either one. Given a choice, I'd pick the Subie, but only by a nose.

yeah, i did mean the sti, thanks
i've been in an Sti. When i used to valet, i parked one, and about 2 hours later, i decided to take it out for a quick joyride. and quick it was. that shit moves. i was actually kinda scared in first gear. well, not scared, but shocked you could say. basically, i was like "holy shit!!!". took me a minute to get it into reverse though. but yeah, the seats are cool, the dash is cool. it is a cool car. but i dunno, just something about the evo makes me (just sold a battery to a lesbian in a 2.5rs, what a sweet car) anyways, i love the way the Evo sounds with an exhaust. this guy is Stamford has a yellow one, with bronze rims, and a loud ass exhaust and BOV. i can hear that shit from like a 1/2 mile away and i start drooling. damn i want one of those so bad. in my opinion, this Evo sounds better than any Sti i've heard. but i'm not knocking the Sti either, they sound amazing also.
