Post '02 OBS looks better than '02 2.5RS!?!

When I was deciding between the two, I wanted the OBS, but I always thought the 2.5RS looked so much better! But after I saw the pictures of them on-line, I think I have made up my mind..the OBS it is!

Just one question..should I go with the stick or auto..I love sticks..just want to make sure there is nothing wrong with them (like the clutches wear out fast or something)

IMO, if you enjoy driving stick, how could you even consider atx?

there will be wear, as with any other clutch setup, but i, personally , cant go back to an ATX car after driving 5 speed..

and, since i dont want this to become another manual vs auto thread, let me just say that you should pick whichever you want.. as long as its MANUAL j/k

If you prefer a manual, get a manual. Besides, automatic is like $800 more, isn't it? If your clutch wears out, and you replace with a nice ACT clutch or something else, it won't cost you near that $800, will it? See, you are just saving all kinds of money!

Does anyone else have an opinion on this...who thinks the '02 OBS actually looks better than the 2.5rs for a change??

Or does anyone disagree??

I totally disagree, I CANT STAND that "Outback" 2-tone paint in the Impreza OR the Legacy! Blah!

Besides, wait until you see the RS in Blue-Ridge pearl or that Blue/black color with the Foglights option... Mmmmm...
