    Hello

    New to the Subaru scene. I'm in the process of looking for a new vehicle particularly a pre-07 WRX wagon. If that doesn't work out as it has been kinda difficult to find them I may go with 2011 WRX sedan. Right now I have a '02 Focus SVT which I've had a lot fun with but a baby girl is on the way and need something bigger.

    I did brush through the "before you buy a wrx or sti" threads which were helpful. This Friday I plan on taking a look at a 07 wagon. It has 58,xxx and no mods except a BOV. Which I thought was a little weird. I'm not too familiar with turbos, is there a reason for just having a BOV other than a little more noise? Is there anything else I should look out for?

    There is another 07 wagon in PA if someone wants to check out for me It has 38,xxx and from what the dealer has said it is stock. Which doesn't mean it wasn't in the past. There is a couple newer Sedan in my area I may give a look at.

    Here is my car. For sale if anybody is interested


    One I'm looking at on fri


    Another in PA

    Pretty sure that blue wagon isn't stock. WRX's didn't come with brembos, only STI's.

    Those are Brembos? I zoomed in the picture and it's the Subaru Red painted clippers. I thought that was stock with 06-07 wrx? Also, maybe its the angle but does the blue one looked lower? Just comparing it to the gray one it seems a little lower but probably its the view.

    They are stock calipers; 4/2 pots.

    As for whether it's lowered, what color are the springs?

    Both wagons seem to be the same height.

    Red calipers are stock on 06-07 as stated.

    Blue one looks better though....just based on looks
