    The VIN plate displays the trans code.

    Thanks Guys. I am planing on looking at a couple more this weekend. Hopefully They look as good in person as they do in the pictures. They are at dealers so we will see how they look.

    Check out the car purchasing forum, & or the "first modifications" thread to find out what to look for. Be especially cautious of mods that don't fit in that path, and always be skeptical of parts being added that required tuning as that may not have happened. The most obvious will be around the turbo - is the stock heat shield and downpipe there?

    Personally I would never buy a WRX without an openport cable & a laptop and the knowledge of how to look at some really simple things like learning view or even better logging the car. This information is all available in the tuning forum.

    Okay. Not had this halpen before. But could someone help me with this. When I was turning in to spots and put the clutch in it would do a hard stop and bind up what is that?
