    Search for the "so you want to buy a used wrx" thread (can't recall exactly what it's called).

    There are lots of tell tale signs about which cars to avoid like the plague; it's often easier, and far more thorough, to have the car inspected by a pro. If it passes all the basic inspection process then I'd pony up for a compression/leak down test, a couple of hundred dollar expense that can save you thousands.

    Don't fall in love with a car right away and buy it without knowing everything about it. Things can get expensive if you end up buying someone else's headache.

    "Just a WRX"??? Pbbbbtttthhhhh.

    WRXs that spank STIs and EVOs on the track aren't "Just a WRX" are they?

    Differences between 06-07 WRXs:

    TR model - has 2-piece seats, straight rocker panels, black mirrors, cheap stereo
    Standard model - 1-piece seats, contoured rockers, painted mirrors, double din stereo w/ cd changer

    ^^^^ Mechanically, they are the same.

    2006 - "Gunmetal-ish" colored headlights and taillights
    2007 - Chrome headlights and taillights

    2006 - Aluminum control arms
    2007 - Steel control arms (although I've heard a few came w/ aluminum leftovers from previous year)

    I recently bought a 2007 Impreza for about $16000 with only 15k miles on it, but that's in jersey. I think i was lucky to find this one, but I'm sure there are ones out there for you. Even if it has more miles you cant go wrong with a subaru. I don't have any problems with mine at all (no accidents). But the only thing is that it doesn't have any mods and its automatic. If you buy a newer model, you may still have a warranty, like mine, and that means no mods for a while. If the car already has mods, it would cause problems anyways. My insurance really sucks even with the good grade discounts and patron rates. It almost doubled from my last car's insurance. Good luck with your search!!

    I think that WRXs usually have higher resale values than base Imprezas. It would be damn-near impossible to find a 2007 WRX w/ 15,000 miles for $16,000... and if I did find one, I wouldn't buy...

    Any base model would sell for less than the upgraded versions of any cars. I think that if there wasn't anything wrong a WRX like that I'd buy it. I've seen some pretty sketchy WRXs when I was looking to buy that had less miles and were selling for less. That's why I got a base model. I didn't want to risk that much money!
