    That everyone has them and they're too common.
    But that's my opinion

    Just do what you think you will be able to afford in the long run, and how much sentimental value your Coupe has.

    Is it the bug eye? Not very pretty, you might be able to get the next gen up from that, which are sweet!

    Love scoobies, mental cars but are common as muck for what they are!

    Go evo?

    From what I know on the engines, you can't squeeze much more power out of them without spending a lot.

    TTIUWOP's!

    Always fancied owning an Impreza turbo just because. Friend had one years ago and there's something about the sound, the 4wd, the poor build quality, that makes me want to own one even for a few weeks.

    If you want an Impreza then go for it, as has already been said the build quailty will not be as good as that of the Astra. There will be the odd rattle etc but as a drivers car the Impreza is much better, much more involving and fun to drive than the MK4 Astra.

    The WRX doesn't really have any common problems that i know of, just make sure its been looked after. FSH etc

    As for tuning, its easy to get the WRX engine upto 260-270BHP with little more than an exhaust and a remap, however after that it can get quite costly.

    Other things to bear in mind are insurance, WRX is circa Group 17
    Fuel consumption, it will around 25MPG, Less if driven to enjoy (35ish is the best you will get on a gentle Motorway trip)
