I figured wrx over sti personally for dd uses. 5 spd has taller gears to make that easier. Current models are very similar 0-60 and 1/4 mile. I'm not to big into speeding, I can break the law just fine in a wrx.
You can break the law in a 2.5i easily lol.
The only thing I can tell you is get a short shifter it makes shifting much more enjoyable in the WRX. Pitch stop and some bushings (tranny group N, positive power (front and rear diff) and sway bars + endlinks (22/22 is popular) cleans up the slack in the drivetrain. *pitch stop does transfer some more noise into cabin, you can really hear the car crank over otherwise it's minimal*
Motor wise stage 2 should make most people happy.
