I did the same but with 2012s. The Evo seemed REALLY rough over the pothole-infested roads here in Edmonton. The STi was practically a Cadillac in comparison. The Evo was almost certainly faster, but it was also more money and the Recaro seats didn't really fit me that well (I can't even fit in the Recaros in an RX-8...). The harsher ride made my Subaru decision quite easy.
If it had been the other way around, I'd be driving a Mitsubishi right now. My last three cars were Volvos, but Volvo no longer makes anything that fit my needs... brand loyalty is almost always just stupidity.
