Before getting married I had a WRX and a Caterham 7, I really couldn't ask for more motoring fun. Both were pure excitement but each had its place. The WRX was definatley faster in raw terms but in a race I'd take the 7 every time. On 7 owners trips to Le Mans I've seen 7's race big bikes and win, I wouldn't want to drive it to work in the winter though.Originally Posted by Ricky327
The WRX however was incredibly fast but also very forgiving. Too much power in untrained hands is a recipe for disaster, the AWD makes the car much easier to drive and makes it much less likely to see one in a ditch at the side of the road.
I unedrstood a ricer was a car made to look fast but without the performance to match - there is no way you can say that about a WRX. If anything it's the complete opposite - understated looks and a blast to drive. The STi looks a little more angry, but it can justify it too..!
Just a little ramble, sorry.
