Hi, I'm looking to buy a WRX or an STI sometime in the next six months, and have some questions:
1) It looks like the 04 Model WRX comes with a 4-spoke steering wheel, but the 05's have a nice 3-spoke. Can an 05 wheel be swapped into an 04? Also, are all the steering wheels on WRX's and STI's leather wrapped?
2) I ran some numbers through insurance, and the 04's were about $20/month cheaper to insure than the 05's, but even more interesting was an 05 STI was $9 cheaper to insure than an 05 WRX?
3) Does anyone make an aftermarket front bumper for the 06 and 07 models that gets rid of the Edsel front grille look? I'd prefer a newer WRX, but simply cannot get used to that look.
4) Are the blue cars any harder to find than the other colors offered? I love the way they look in blue.
Thanks for any help!
