I am currently looking to buy a wrx though I've looked at some sites here and there and am wondering which year would be better choice to buy. I'm currently looking at a 05 and a 08. The 05 is roughly $15k and the 08 is $18k. Seeing as the 05 has roughly the same amount of hp as the 08(please correct me if I'm wrong), I'm leaning towards the 05. However im a big fan of the 08 hatchback. I don't plan on upgrading either car for a few years if at all.
What are your opinions? I figure you guys would know better than anyone else.
