Sti or evo 6

ok, I have nailed it down to two cars: One of them i'm afraid to say is an 03 sti impreza the other is the silver evo 6 we have been talking about.

sti: http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/82658.htm
evo 6: http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/87627.htm

I know what looks better, the evo of course
But the scoob is cheaper to run..
But I want performance too, which is the quickest/best handling out of the 2?

Thanks in advance..

The 6 will be a better handling car, Scoobys tend to understeer more than Evos when pushed to the limit. Running costs will be similiar, apart from the service intervals on the 6 being more frequent. The engines on Evos tend to be more reliable, especially if you are going to start modifying the car in the future.One other factor in favour of the Evo is it is a little more exclusive, how many Evos do you see on the road compared to Scoobys?

as barry has said better handling,quicker,more presence,and if its the one on pistonheads alot of nice mods have already been done saving you thousands.the people that have looked after the car,[email protected], are second to none.

That's exactly what draws me to evo's
They are indeed way more exclusive than scooby's your'e right, I see 3 or 4 scooby's to every evo plus evo's look better for sure..
Would the sti be quicker in a straight line though? I've heard those things are fast how would the two shape up in that situation? (both standard)

They revised it didn't they, I hate the round headlighted one's they changed it a bit on this model, doesnt look too bad in my opinion it's mainly the performance standard i'm looking for and it seems to be the evo that's winning anyways

Out of those 2 cars I'd probably go for the Impreza.

If it was between a 2003 STI or a 2003 evo 8 then I'd get the evo 8. The 6 will feel very dated compared to the impreza IMO, especially the interior.

With my sensible head on I'd say go for the Scoob as its newer and has less mileage.

However I haven't got my sensible head on so I would go for the EVO purely for the Exclusivity factor. The Subaru is a Clitorous of the car world, every C**t's got one.

evo V sti

Hi all, i've had a sti ver 4 and in my opinion the scoob was more refined/comfortable inside,was just as quick as my 6,ran it for 3yr no problem,but then started modding it,after 300plus bhp was so UN-RELIABLE,headgasket/crank/oilpump/,

but i bought mine when there was hardly any other sti's out there but now,everyone has got one,i thought i'd try the 6 to compare,and one thing is since owning it is the amount of people who stare,

say awesome car matey,better than a scoob!!


i also think the evo is better built mechanically,plus the drivetrain
so if you can live with the interior of a 6,
get the 6,better looking/more reliable/even when modded to 350,
less chance of everyone saying

'oh look another scoob'

and being miffed when the crank walks

plus the MLR is ton's better than Scoobynet in my opinion.
