    Newb from IL here!!

    Hey everyone just wanted to say "Hi" to all, and had a few questions to ask considering I'm new in the subie world. Well I am thinking of getting a bug eye wagon, and dont know much about em, and was wondering if I could get a few pointers? Like year and model or something? And whats the difference between the TS and RS?

    Thanks,

    JT

    hey welcome to the club


    you might wanna read through this:

    if youre getting a 2002: Subaru Impreza WRX, Outback Sport, RS, TS prices, options.

    if youre getting a 2003:Subaru 2003 Impreza WRX, Outback Sport, RS, TS prices, options. (some slight changes were made)

    it has a lot of good information and if you scroll about 3/4ths down the page it will tell you all the differences between rs and ts (the rs only came in a sedan... the ts was for the wagon)

    Basically:

    TS = non-turbo 2.5L wagon

    RS = non-turbo 2.5L sedan

    If you want a wrx (turbo version) then it would just be termed a "wrx wagon".

    When looking to buy a used bugeye watch out for mods, make sure the clutch is consistant, the shifting is solid, and that boost stays linear to redline once the turbo begins to spool.
    Those are the main things to look for. Some research will give you a lot more detail though.

    I've been out here for 5 years, not at all a bad town to live in. I grew up in the city and am back and forth all the time myself.
