Each to their own mate. Everyone is different and uses their car in different ways.

I've had three newage STIs and have had them for several years now.

How long have you had yours to give it a proper chance?

But as I said, each to their own, and if it's not for you then fair play.

:whistle:

Have to agree with Neil, newage is a great everyday/motorway car but for for sheer thrill and driving experience a classic is the way.

Agreed after having the classic on track for the first time its definatley much more raw and a "drivers" car compared to the newage but it was nice to be able to go places in comfort and tbh i'm as happy driving about in my diesel focus estate everyday.

If your buying a toy get a classic somebodys already spent a load on and drive it til the wheels come off B):whistle:

i,ve had the sti for 4 weeks but it,s just to heavy and yes it,s more tuneable but power to weight is a big must when buying a scoob for the track and i just got it wrong i,am keeping the sti for commuting but tracking down a p1 for the weekend cheers guys for the imput

only driven a newage once From Newcastle to Glasgow, was a really nice drive and well refined. The P1 just felt like a feather afterwards and so much more raw.

You won't be disappointed with a P1, keep a look out for type R's too. DCCD is something you don't get in the P1

problem with newage's is when standardish they feel slow and handling is crap.

add some coilovers, ARB's and droplinks = handling sorted

add power including supporting mods (20g turbo) taking power to 380ish BHP = power sorted

Jobs a goodin :driving:

refinement plus added benefit of 6 speed bullitproof gearbox :lol:

You canna compare a modded classic to a standard newage! To compare you would have to have a similarly modded newage & classic :thumbup:

Mod the newage then compare it :D Newage is a better chasis for power its 200% stiffer than a classics.

Look on the bright side at least you never bought the new hatch :P Then you'd have something to moan about :)

Hi m8 if you want the best of both worlds go for a wr1, i have a classic type ra and a wr1 and you you can`t beat it with a big stick.

Couldn't agree more :D
