Ah I see. Well I would still defend the forester because it has a more adult beginning. You could mod the forester to behave pretty much like a stock sti. Even if you upgrade the exhaust there are still a few options out there that are pretty quiet. Personally I would be happier having a car that is quicker than others like it than a car that's just stock. There are people who know what sti's are and they might still consider it a kid's car even if you've toned it down. A forester you have to mod to a certain point to make it a kid's car. An sti you have to mod to make it an adults car.
No matter what we say it is still your choice. Hope you enjoy your decision!
