|Absolutely no problem deciding.|
STi and Evo are quicker, faster, better handling, way more focused performance-wise, and
have much more attention getting looks. The STi is seriously fast, the Evo has
the handling edge of the two. The STi doesn't come standard with a radio.
The new Evo RS won't even come with sound deadening material.
These are rally bred near-race cars for the street.
That's why I'm getting an R32.
Other than the fact that these cars cost about $30k and have AWD, they have
almost nothing else in common. R32 is a comfortable 6 cylinder AWD performance
hatchback packed to the gills with standard features, that I can live with every day
of the year, driving around the western states, commuting, hauling my crap, tearing
it up on the twisty roads and flogging on the track a couple days a year. The R32 does
everything well, but is the master of no single category. It is not the fastest, or best handling,
or flashiest, or most luxurious car. However, it represents one of the best balances
between performance, luxury, practicality, styling, uniqueness and price.
If you're on the fence, there's no way we can convince you with numbers.
You'll simply have to go test drive it and see what you think yourself.

Now just you wait and see. Watch Ian come back with a post stating that he never said the car was a bad handling car, just not the best handling car lol.

|You both have great input, it just seems that each of you come from different angles. That is just fine for me, b/c I think that you are both right. Hence, I am awaiting delivery of my R. Nice to see that you guys didn't really lace into one another, and just had a substantial and informative debate. Thanks to our resident know-it-all and our resident mechanic ... you guys always help us tease out both the tangible and intangible qualities and concerns that arise when being in love with the R.|
