I'm thinking of getting a used WRX. I'm comparing two, each for sale by local private sellers. They are both basically the same price. Here are the options:
1) A 2006, Factory SPT performance package, factory Recaro seats, factory Momo steering wheel, Momo shift, Boost gauge, Hybrid Garret GT35R compressor ball bearing turbo, Cobb Accessport with custom staged map. 4" to 3" turbo back exhaust.
2) A 2004, COBB Accessport tuner currently running stage 2, lowered with COBB springs and has 17' bronze Rota wheelsnew Yokohama S.drive tires.
The 2004 also has some custom audio parts, and only 60K miles.
So, I guess my real question is about the Garret Turbo on the 2006 model. Does that trump the new tires and lower mileage of the 2004? It seems kind of obvious to go with the '06.
Anything I'm overlooking? Any reason the '04 has an advantage?
