    Looking for another WRX: 02 vs 04

    So, my '02 was totaled a month ago (someone pulled out in front of me) and I am now looking to replace it. I wonder what the real differences are between the 02 and the 04? Is it just the front end?

    front end, mild interior changes, 02 has the brake air ducts. not really sure anything else. i know the taillights and rear bumper are different as well. if i had to choose id get whichever has less miles depending on the price

    Ok, it looks like I am picking up an '04 wagon. I am just wondering if the 04 has the same radiator issues the 02s had? I had to replace the radiator in both of my 02s.

    I wasn't aware of any radiator problems from any generation.

    I just know I had to replace it in both of my 02s and I thought it was mentioned as a weakness for that year.
