    Just bought a 2002 today!

    This is my first Subaru ever! It is a 2002 Wrx, it is not a Sti though... is there a big difference between the two and what makes it different from the other one?

    Congrats on the bugeye purchase! Do a search and you will find what you are looking for. There is a huge difference between the 02's and the STi's (which first became available in teh US in 04 MY)

    First off, how much did u pay for the car. I paid 12500 for mine. I got a K and N filter, but that's just cuz I like oiling a old K and N instead of buying paper filters. I would start with an up pipe. Check out this thread it will point you in the right direction

    Decent, I want to find some cool rims. I got heavy ass 17's but I'm not putting them on. I bought them for my Alero I traded in for the WRX.
