    Questions for the 04-05 owners

    Hey guys im currently in the market for a 04-05 WRX and
    just wanted to get your input. My current car will be paid off in
    April of this year. Its a 2004 Honda Civic Ex 5spd, and i plan to
    trade it in. Im going to be 22 by then, just curious how much
    insurance is on one of these. I know these cars are supposed to
    hit around 14 flat in the 1/4 but is it real easy to push it in the 13's
    with bolt-ons? Sorry im such a noob, im just a Honda guy and im
    really interested in this car bc I dont know much about the boxer
    motor and im getting mixed feelings about that. I just need some info
    and encouragement from you guys so please help me out.

    For insurance call your agent give him the year your looking at and get a price quote. Every driver has way to many variables to give you a close idea of insurance. Like age, driving record, where you live...blah blah blah.
    Sure its not your average motor, but IMO its a heck of a lot easier to work on than a 4cyl motor with the belts and accesories on the side of the motor. They are very reliable and can definetly show great numbers with something has simple has a downpipe and engine management. I was looking at RSXs and drove this and i havent regreted a thing. Go find one and test drive it!

    I believe Allstate has that "Ballpark estimate" that they can give you so you don't have to provide any personal information - that would probably be a good place to start

    Bolt ons work...

    Stage 2 which is a Downpipe (or Turboback exhaust if you want to add a full catback to the downpipe) and Engine Management (simplest is Cobb AccessPort) will get you running as low as 13.7, pending on how well you can drive and such...

    However...biggest thing is, to take care of your car. They will last every bit as long as a Honda, so long as you don't abuse it and you perform your regular maintenance

    Search through stickies, Mod's Sig links, and anything else you can. Knowledge is key with these cars...the more you learn, the better off you are

    Greetings and welcome to the club!

    I would opt for the 2005 - its steering rack is a bit faster.

    Welcome. I looked at an 04 Civic EX just before buying my 04 WRX. I'm very happy with my decision. I even bought a Subaru Legacy for my daily driver. I probably won't drive anything other than a Subaru. Do it. You won't regret it. Insurance will vary depending on where you live, etc.

    Awesome! You guys seem really cool. Ive surfed other car sites and
    some people can be so ignorant it kills me. Thanks for the welcomes,
    the car seems sick I have sat in one but yet to drive it. I have actually
    driven the 2005 RSX-S already at my previous work (Tire Kingdom). And
    wasnt all that impressed, my brothers new 07 civic si 4 door felt faster
    than it. Im really opting my choice as the WRX, maybe i can lean my
    folks into the larger co-sign amount i.e. Sti but who knows.
