STI Hands down, No competition. Those good looks, More comfortable, Much better sounding, I LOVE that Subaru F4 Flat Rumble, Fun gearbox, Easier everything. And better in the wet. This Boxster is nice, But Impreza all the way.

@ Viking: It doesn't snow much here In Georgia, but it did last week. Someone at work has a Subaru Impreza WRX.

I also prefer the Porsche. If I lived where snow was a problem the WRX STi would be nice and useful, but since it doesn't snow here I can enjoy mid-engine rear drive fun year round. :)

BoxsterS not too much faster but much more expensive.
