Anybody consider a WRX when buying IS300?

I am looking at these two as well as used M3 or S4. I'm leaning toward getting a new car - so the BMW and Audi are probably out

The WRX and IS300 are different in many ways, but they both feel like performance cars. Also, I haven't driven a 5sp IS300 yet - drove a auto this summer.

I did, but in the end the handling of the WRX put me off.

Nothing more fun, IMO, than a RWD car tuned for sport...

That being said, that WRX has one helluva stonking motor. It very much reminds me of our Saab. Lotsa power, slightly gritty and hoarse... But pulls like a freight train.

Just depends upon what cooks your goose!
