    I see you fixored the blobeye for me.

    Fill me in, is the blobeye one to be shunned for some reason (other than obvious ugly stick)? Or is it pepsi/coke?

    In terms of looks, from best to worst I think it goes Stinkeye > Hawkeye > bugeye > blobeye.

    A WRX is AWD. 4wd implies that you can change between 2wd and 4wd.

    Quick question, or maybe not.

    I see a lot of Hawkeye WRX's for sale on the interwebs. Are there particular model years that are problematic / have issues to watch out for? Yes I can search and read, but I'm wondering if there is a quick answer to this.

    I don't know. I really only have been considering selling the GLI for a WRX.



    Pic related, that's mine. Love the car, but want more.

    Hah! I love Miatas but the connotation is a little too ghey. Plus, Ill become the new Beerguy and I'm already enough of a whipping boy on RC (self made, I pride myself on being a great whipping boy).

    Ok so lets hear about your WRX

    Are there any inherent issues with the Stink-Eye that I need to watch out for? I'm still going to be looking at used cars if the price is right.
    Stay away from the 09 WRX. There were some bearing issues in the engine. Yes... it is build date dependent... but I wouldn't trust that one of those bearings wasn't tossed in my engine from a later date.

    Ah another Bugeye guy!

    Thanks for the advice on the 09, Sinister. What is the cutoff for the build date? There seem to be a lot of 09's in a great price range. Not that I want to tempt fate... But...
