Default Car buying advice

Hi guys,

Fell into some money recently. Looking to spend 40k on a subi. What in your opinions is the best way to go. Whatever i buy will be fitted with TBE and a tune after i buy it.

My considerations from looking around are a 2015 sti with 42000 km or there are numerous 2015 - 2017 wrxs at around 35-40 grand. From my reading it looks as if the wrx is not that much worse off then the sti? Only missing 30 odd hp and having a lesser turbo lag as well. I understand the sti comes with all the gadgets like sports mode etc..jusg curious as to how you guys would apparoach it.

What will the car be used for is the main question?

STI is certainly a good starting point if you intend to modify further than an exhaust and tune. The 6 speed, brembos and DCCD are also great features.

People often buy the WRX and modify it at a cost of double the initial difference to get into a STI.

primarily it will be a daily driver. I had a 265 hp 2013 wrx that was great but always felt like i wanted a lil bit more oomf i think the sti and the bolt ons will provide that. I am just unsure as to whether or not the features oin the sti will justify the price difference.
