The Mazda MX3 s wins. {hands down}

If you were going to consider a WRX it would need to be a 2008 or newer to even be comparable

I know it's stupid, but I can't get over how terrible the WRX's interior is. I've always wondered how a $35,000 car can have a $15,000 car's interior.

It depends on what you want:
The WRX is very sporty, a ton of fun to drive, and gets quick, damn quick. And if thats highly important you will want to consider it.
One thig to remember, a Turbo that age is getting near its shelf life, and will need to be replaced\rebuilt.

The Mazada, no less sporty, Is not as quick off the shelf, but the engine is considered Bulletproof, and will last as the Ottoman Empire.

Soooo: Do you have the money to spend on a turbo rebuild and does that make it worth the Sporty, Quick upside of the WRX
Or would you rather save the money and spend it one Car Audio? hmmmmmmmm

I have a feeling this is going to be a long thread with at least 2 arguments involved. lol But my 2 cents would be the mazda. Ive seen them get pretty damn quick with the right work done and you start with less miles. The WRX can get a lot faster and it all depends on how much money you are planning on dumping in the engine. Just my 2 cents.
