Post decisions, decisions

now that i have a good career and im able to afford to have both rs and wrx, im wondering if i should get the wrx (227 hp 24k)or wait till oct and purchase a nissan skyline gt-r r32 (500+ hp for 40k-42k). i can either get my wrx in july or get the skyline atleast by oct, if not earlier. im leaning toward the skyline, but i might get the wrx since i want a new place to live, if not ill still be living w/ moms.

I say turbocharge your RS and use the money you save to buy beer!

With a low boost kit you'll still be a second quicker in the 1/4 than the WRX.

You can make you car really fast with a more aggressive turbo kit.

Just think of how fast you can make your RS with $15,000 to invest in it!

You'd be surprised how easily "new" cars cope with power. I have a 1966 Pontiac GTO, I built the motor and it has around 450hp. For an old school car with such little suspension technology or anything it is relatively easy to drive. I have a friend that used to have a 530rwhp Camaro that wasn;t that out of control either. I never drove the car, but was surprised how he handled the car when he was on the throttle. I just got finished reading the SCC article today with the Skylines....awesome cars!!! I LOVE the way the R32 looks, nice and small yet so powerful. I would imagine that an AWD car with that much power would be a blast to drive, and not that bad as long as you you respected the power. Of course you said that the money could go to place that is without the moms. As much as I love my parents, and as much as I love fast cars....living on my own rules! I am in my senior year here and just about to graduate...but I loathe the thought about having to be at home for a while till I finda job. Lots of choices..good luck!
