you're going to be paying like 700 a month for it or more
plus, with what spaztikid said, you will need to know how to drive a car much better than you probably can now..i was reading all about the STi and how the FIRST thing people say is learn how to drive it or forget it, it's not like any other car.
and i still don't believe you can afford it otherwise, you will be dumping more money out of the bank just to have it...
so would you rather have more money that you have to pay back...or use money you have to buy something that will be equally just as good.
i do not think it is a decision for US to make, this is yours...it's your money, your car, your life..why would we tell you what to do? both cars will be substantially different, it's either you like one or the other.
OK, he already said he's putting out cash and not making payments. And before anyone goes off judging that because a person is young, that he is therefore an inexperienced driver, and therefore shouldn't be driving something like, say, an Evo, remember you can screw up/have an accident/total a car at any age.
I'm still trying to understand the benefits of a turbo on a GTS; I had understood most were still "under development", and what is the downside of putting on a turbo. My bias would be to stick with the Celica, and turbo if possible - I'm not a big Evo fan.
