It's got 19k miles on it, hks exhaust and bov, and its in my price range. The only thing i don't like about it is the interior and it doesn't look like ****** car to me. I'll prolly put some 18 racing wheels on it to make it look a little better. Thoughts?

a few years ago my mom had a subaru impreza wagon and it was very reliable and had some balls to it, i went up to the dealership to check out some wrx's but they were all way to much $$ for me... the sti's were well over 30k and regular wrx's were not but a few g's behind them (brand new mind you)

she had the 2.0 if im not mistaken, although not the turbo one :(

The SRT-4 is faster then the Rex, but the Rex makes for a funner ride, especially in the winter time if you live in a snowy area

If it's not an Sti, the srt4 is indeed faster.

We are picking up an 07 next week. I personally love them, i mean I'm not 100% sold on the looks, but the AWD system is amazing. Feels like your driving on rails, and hell even the 2.5(non turbo) has plenty of power.

Like i said, I'm not sold on the looks, i never used to like these cars until i sat in one....The moment i pulled out of the dealer lot, I let it rip and WOW!!

I'm buying it for the wife as she needs a awd car with good gas mileage, but its gunna be my play toy when she racks up the mileage in a couple years...

I like WRX's too but I think some of you guys are hyping it up with a bit too much credit. For under 10g's if that's true I'd definitely scoop it up. Its a fun little car with some decent potential.

The one in the pic looks great as it is, honestly.

Don't discount the Lancer Evolution; Dealerships have a healthy stock of the 2006 model (they skipped 2007) and the Evolution X is on it's way out toward the end of the summer, so the IX should be available at a smashing price.

Evo X:

Evo IX:

I found a 95 Z28 for sale for 1k with minor body damage (front bumper), cold air intake, and cut outs.

Hell go spend 30,000.00+ on a brand new sti, and I'll get the z28 for 1k, and put 1k in it, and we will line them up, and race for 5 grand right now as we speak. :yumyum:

The SRT is defintely faster in a straight line, especially at highway speeds and up. But when the WRX is defintely a much better handling car, and probably more reliable. Just beware... They have an explosive 3rd gear... By explosive I mean metal shards in the tranny explosive, not the tire chirping kind of explosive.

you're comparing a vehicle thats meant for road courses and dirt tracks to a car that was meant to go in a straight line and not do much more. of course its going to win on a drag strip... that proves absolutely nothing.

ok....

Ricer Burner = Car from the land how rice

However, in todays day and age most people refer to a ricer as some douche bag with the APC Catologue on there car.

STis trannyis fine, its the regular wrx that has problems

That was fixed in 05

06 and up Drive by wire Blows on the automatic

The STi is plenty fast

and the Wrx is geared twords rally racing wheras the Sti, is just a monster...

Hence the tranny problems people encounters trying to run a rally car on the streets...

Thats easily fixable before something goes wrong..

Opinions vary gentlemen. What one defines as rice is apparently different from another, so let it go. And as an overall generalization, comparing a new(ish) vehicle to a budget buy in performance for value categories is ridiculous. Obviously, there are some crazy fast race cars that can be had for say $20k and then you look at a brand new car line up and of course nothing will touch it. Cars should only be directly compared on a bang for the buck basis if they are of similar model year and category and preferably in the same cost bracket to begin with. That's really it, bottom line. People want different things, thats why some buy new and some buy used.

I have 2006 WRX, it is now at Stage 2 with about ~290bhp. If you are trying to go super fast in a line, or do any thing from a roll, you won't be too happy. But if launched properly (remember it is AWD so no dropping the clutch unless you want to break something) or in the twisties, there is nothing more fun. And NOTHING sounds like a Suby (flat 4 and un-equal length headers = Suby Rumble). You will love it without a doubt. If you get one head on over to www.nasioc.com and register.

If you get an 06 or newer you will get the 2.5L motor, more low end grunt, and peak HP/TQ hits quicker. There is little turbo lag.

Hence the rumor that suby's have weak trannies, they are not weak at all, but they will break if you abuse them. The only people that break them are the ones that go to the track and sidestep the clutch :suicide:

WRXs are very good cars. My sister has had 2 of them and they're both great. Go for it man.


I have 2006 WRX, it is now at Stage 2 with about ~290bhp. If you are trying to go super fast in a line, or do any thing from a roll, you won't be too happy. But if launched properly (remember it is AWD so no dropping the clutch unless you want to break something) or in the twisties, there is nothing more fun. And NOTHING sounds like a Suby (flat 4 and un-equal length headers = Suby Rumble). You will love it without a doubt. If you get one head on over to www.nasioc.com and register.

If you get an 06 or newer you will get the 2.5L motor, more low end grunt, and peak HP/TQ hits quicker. There is little turbo lag.

Oh and wagon = super sleeper.

Now that is ****. My sister's is a black 06 sedan. True the turbo lag is much less noticeable with the added displacement in the 06s, but if you (OP) were to get a 2.0l, you could always get a catless downpipe that was relieve a LOT of the lag

Thanks for the compliments.

Yeah a catless DP + tune is stage 2, also the 05's and prior have a catted up-pipe, so if you get a catless up-pipe, catless down pipe, and a tune you'll be at a full stage 2.

See, this is the reason you dont think the STI is fast, because you dont know how to drive or build boost, and you only care about going in a straight line.


A lambo and an evo in a straight line.... WHO ******* CARES?!?!?!?!? Only a retard would buy either for the 1/4 time.

Moron.your making yourself sound dumber by the second, preston. you think a race with a ton of cornering is only about speed?! and not a straight 1/4!?!?! oh ****, the sti can handle like a mofo, therefore it must be fast as balls. thats the stupidest arguement in the world. are you mentally retarded? you must be. of course the 1/4 mile isnt the only important part. and where did i say i would buy a car based on 1/4 mile times. get your head outta your @$$ preston.

A vehicle that can maintain speed through turns is much more impressive performance wise than a vehicle that can blast down the straightaways. So yes, When compared to a Camaro SS a STi is still fast as balls.

Meanwhile your argument... lets see how fast they go in the quarter... like that proves anything. And 'dumber' is not a word. Moron.

Meanwhile your argument... lets see how fast they go in the quarter... like that proves anything. And 'dumber' is not a word. Moron.not the same words. go get yourself a dictionary and look up the word "fast" then come back and try to argue your point again. you are gay for the WRX, congrats. but just cause a car has great handling and can take turns faster than an ordinary car does not make it a "fast" car. your argueing the wrong arguement, and your points are just opinion based anyways. you **** at life so STFU

and again, let me restate what i said b4 so maybe this time it'll sink into your small head...i never said the WRX wasnt a great car or wasnt fast or couldnt handle good. i only said i drove an STI and i wasnt impressed. I expected more from something that claims 300hp. ive driven 300hp cars that are none turboed and ive driven other turbos, and i believed their ratings. in fact, i think my buddys WRX was faster than that sti. and he says hes under 300hp. i dont know what to tell you...maybe that sti was a jinxed car or something, but i didnt like it thats all i know

You ever seen the Cars race across america? They go through the twisties, highways, straights, hills, citys, and everything. There's a reason they all have muscle cars, zo6's, camaro's, chargers, and etc. :p

If you decide to get that rex, the first thing I would do is get rid of the BOV and replace it with the stock BPV. The BOV might sound cool but it is robbing performance and damaging your cats. The moter is expecting there to be lots of air, so it injects more fuel, but since the pressure was vented to the atmosphere, the car will run super rich for a short amount of time. BOV's are useless unless you are running 20-22+psi.
