If you really don't mind getting a car made from the tears of 6 Million jews while trying to establish a 1000 year Reich which resulted in their defeat over the Southern Skies of Great Britain. Get the Mini

Otherwise get the WRX.

for the record, I'd get a WRX cuz I want to snowboard a lot more this year.

If I didn't board, I'd get the Mini.

I'd get the Mini, unless AWD and space are really important to you.

I like the last gen mini cooper S better. The new one looks too girly and cute for me. I'd go for the WRX hatch or the last gen Mini.

Neither of these two - Pontiac G8 GT.

360hp ftw.

G8 couldn't give me a deal on lease
they'd take a shitload off the price though like 5 or 6k
That cars resale value doesn't look promising either...

Lol Elkayem, didn't I post that video of the wrx?

They won't lease to you cuz there's not going to be any more Pontiac. How about buying the car outright? Factory rebate allowance is up to 7.5k, so if you can play hardball and bring it down to less than 30k for a loaded G8 GT you're golden!

Resale value on domestic's going to be meh, though... but I don't think Subies are all that hot either on resale. Mini's I don't know either.

The fuel economy of the V8 GT is disappointing, real world would probably be >15L/100km in the city.

used rex's look good in resale value still worth above 50% after 4 or 5 years, which I guess would be decent especially in these times.
