If WRXs started coming with things like electronic dip sticks, you can expect to pay BMW prices for it. I think we all agree that no one would find a WRX @ 45K a value. I don't mean to come off crass and this isn't directed to you, just a mechanics musings in general. People need to stop relying on the idiot lights, read the owner's manual and stop thinking cars don't need supervision and maintenance. I make no excuses for the factory sending them low or the techs missing it on the PDI, but I find it even more discouraging that this happens in a community like WRX owners, because I always, for whichever reason, was under the impression that the people who bought these cars were hands on, so much so that they become a bit of an annoyance to the techs with how meticulous they want things done.
