I mean, the octane difference doesn't really matter that much to me either, it would just be nice to be able to put the cheapest gas in it possible but oh well. And finding a truly stock wrx is hard, especially when theres not many to pick from. And they maybe stock, but half the time they're converted back to stock. Im convinced my last wrx had a bigger turbo and modded ecu right before i bought it with a knocking engine. Im going to try to go that route again and look for a car that needs an engine...cheaper that way. The only thing about a wrx is, insurance is going to cost more than a 2.5i. I paid about 190/month on a 02 wrx, and im only paying 60/month now on my 04 ranger.
