im turning 17 in about a month and have always wanted a WRX. I drive an Altima right now and want to upgrade to a little more power. my dad made an agreement with me to match however much money i can put down. i have 8500 but my dad wouldnt let me spend that much and get a high performance car for my first year of driving so he agreed on my 17th birthday i can get it! The time is coming and i can spend 17000. I really like the 2006-2007 because of the upgraded 2.5l block that the sti's come with. I also like the body style of them over all the years except the new sti wagons. My question is what can i expect to get? For the amount of miles i can get on the car, what problems should i be looking for in the future and how much will it cost? Our family has been with statefarm for 15 years and i have many discounts for grades, safe driving, and taking a driving course so insurance shouldnt be too crazy out the roof. As for mods, i am not looking to do anything except an exhaust. My friends has the Invidia catless on his sti and i love the sound on it. He has a whole cosworth engine and twin clutch set up and he is always getting his **** tuned. Am i going to need to do this or do they only need to be tuned when you mess with air intake and air/fuel mixtures? Thanks for the help! i am just looking to see what i can expect to get for the money and what problems i can be aware of in the future.
