    how much?

    how much does a spec v go for anyway? If it's in the low 20k range, that'll get you a new WRX if you do your shopping right?

    I got my 03' WRX for $22,600. No sense in getting something you really don't want when you the car you really want may cost just a little more.

Also Nissan really droped the ball with the 2.5 they put in it, i personally know one guy who was gone through 2 of them with bad bottom ends, and ive heard a lot of people misshifting and breaking the rocker arms to pieces. Anways your better off getting an older SR20 powered SE-R. Being a SR20 convert to the WRX myself i am really not proud that Nissan put the SE-R badage on the Spec-V. Although the SR20DE has much less power output in stock form compared to the 2.5 in the Spec-V, the SR20DE has much better potential, in that it was designed from the ground up to be a turbo engine. The SR20DET varrient only has few extras such as oil squrters, but is basicly a SR20DE with a turbo bolted up. If your looking for a fun to drive and fun to work on car i would highly suggest the early 90's SE-R's or even say a 1999 Sentra SE-L (thats what i had). There is plenty that you can do with 'stock' parts from the DET bolted up to that engine. In closing it has been shown that the SR20DE can handle around 400WHP on a stock bottom end, now that my friends is imprezive (hehe). Anyways the Spec-V is a nice car but i just dont think i would drop 20K on it. Good luck with what ever car you choose.

    I agree, the SR20 is a very good engine. The aruguments that i've heard was to give the QR25(Spec V) more time. That might be true... but I won't be getting my hopes up too soon.

    To answer the other question. I saw an ad for a Spec V for 16k, 0%APR, 0 payments til 04.

    Price came down hard because of competition and the fact that not many people are raving about the QR25 now.

    I guess if you really can't afford a WRX that is one thing but if you don't have to stretch too far I would still get a WRX. I went throught the same thing with a lot of cars and you end up kicking yourself in the butt for not getting what you really want. It usually ends up costing you more too since you usually will eventually trade in the car on the car you want and lose money
