I had a BMW and now have a Subaru. If you want comfort, quality, status, get the BMW ... otherwise get either the Lancer (if it is Evo) or the WRX -- their build quality is much worse than BMW's, but they are very fast and very cheap to mod.

Basically, if you are going to mod for speed/power, BMW isn't for you ... and the other 2 ... just get whichever you like more as the mods are about the same price for both.

sp0rky is an unknown quantity at this point
Let me just start off by saying that if you aren't talking about a lancer evo, that is the most random list of car's I've seen. They are all SO different.

If it's the evo, scrap the BMW 5er and go for the WRX / EVO if your looking for fun (tossing around, modding, etc). (although I'd pic the evo. )

go for the sti... youll already enjoy the speed as it seems thats what your looking for, but realisticly, which you probibly havent really noticed yet since you havent started driving, is all cars are fast... doesnt matter if its a civic or a ferarri, they will both get you past the speed limit before you even realize it... sti is one hell of a first car, and i would be very careful driving it... if you dont know how a turbo works then make sure you read up on it and read about it expectially about the one in your car and when it kicks in... 90% of my body mans customers are teens that strap turbos to thier civics and stuff and high rev around a slick corner and the turbo kicks in and sends them off the road... just play it safe man, dont wana end up like buuuhhh...
