    Thinking of buying 04 05 wrx help!

    I'm wanting to buy a 04 or 05 wrx. But i'm not sure which one is better, performance wise and interior wise. I'm not an expert with cars just a beginner but i have heard that changing spark plugs requires moving the engine. Please help and tell me which one to get. I'm looking for all stock only.

    Thanks

    Holy crap where did you hear that? Some spark plugs are more difficult to get to than others true, but i haven't heard needing to pull an engine to change spark plugs.

    Utilize the search on the site. The info is out there.

    Whoever provided you with that nugget of information needs to be ignored from this point forward. There's a nice tutorial for changing plugs on this site.

    The '04 and '05 are very similar, from a performance and exterior perspective. The '05 was the year when they revamped the interior, and most people think that it was a major improvement.
