Having said that, I ended up driving home in an 04 WRX wagon (5sp) because the whole package feels sportier to me than the Forester, in spite of the turbo lag. My goal in replacing my Outback wagon was to get something sportier, and to me the WRX fit that perfectly. I loved the XT, but not enough to write a check for it.
Compared to the XS, the XT has mostly subtle differences (other than the motor). Both are really well equipped, although I was sad you couldn't get a sunroof with the manual transmission XT.

Oh and the forester has ALOT more toys.
Basicly if you plan to mod the car at all the Forester XT is hands down teh winnar. Stock V Stock its slightly better.
BTW the WRX springs and struts bolt right in and lower the forester ALOT even w/o lowering springs. So some nice STi takeoff's and you are set for suspension...

On price. Although the sticker prices may be similar, the dealer I went to wanted like 29000 for a forester XT. I dont think it even had leather or moonroof or anything. So it was comparibly equipped to an automatic WRX wagon. Which the same dealer would sell for like 23-24000 I think. So the amount in which the dealer is willing to bargain is the price difference I really notice I guess is the best way to put it.
