    Im thinking of buying a wrx

    Hi everyone. Im new here. Im wanting to ask a few queations and see if you good people can help me. I allways liked wrx but never really been into cars so dont know much about them. But I like wrx. Allways wanted one. They look awsome, Have power and also comfortable. I was looking at around a 94 model and all the ones I see for sale seem to have done high milage. Around 200-300km. Also im a bit worried they have all been thrashed. Tryng to find one that has been respected. All the excuses I see resons for sale seem the standard excuse. Moving overseas. Wife said must go. All that. Sometimes I dont go on it. Seem excuses to get rid of a car cause the engines about to blow from all the burnouts they probably been doing. lol.
    What do you think I need to check to be sure I dont get ripped off. I mean. I dont want to buy one and find in a week the turbo is blown or something. Do problems start to come up around the 200-250k mark on these cars?. Also I only been looking at standard cars. Im not interested in buy one allready worked up. Two obvious they been raced and trashed on the streets.

    Thanks for any help.

    See the how to buy threads in the purchasing forum.

    Problems come about much sooner than 250k km. the cars you are considering would not be my choice for an only car. Time flies and it's seldom kind.

    Yea. Agree with you. Its hilarious. All the ones I been looking at with low miles all have second hand engines. Body has done 200km engine done 29km after I read it.
    I cant afford a new wrx so will just enjoy watching them drive past I think is better option. I dont think I could trust in buying one, not a older model like a 94-96 that im after.Trying to find a standard straight one with low Miles theres just none out there. Not where I live anyhow.
