    Hello =)

    Hey everyone! I just joined your site and I have a confession to make: I do not currently and have never owned a WRX, or any Subaru for that matter. I just lost my beloved '04 SVT Ford Focus in a horrible wreck and I'm thinking it's time for a change. I've decided a WRX would be a very good choice for my next car but I'd like to learn more about them. That's why I'm here and I look forward to learning from all you experienced WRX owners.

    Welcome from NJ!

    Sorry to hear about your SVT Focus. Those were awesome little cars, but the WRX is a great choice for a replacement. You'll find almost everything you need here. When are you looking to purchase? Any mods you think you'll be doing?

    I'm hoping to purchase a WRX by the end of the year. I have another DD so getting a replacement for the Focus isn't something I'm going to rush into. As far as mods go, I haven't really given it a lot of thought yet, and I don't really know what mods are most beneficial to these cars. I had a short-ram intake on my Focus but other than that I kept it stock. I have to say, all the different WRX body styles are gorgeous but I'm finding I'm partial to the older ones with the round headlights. I might try to find me a 2003.

    Try to find one with full maintenence records and no modifications. They are out there, but it's probably a good thing that you are in no rush As far as mods go, the link in my sig is a good place to start reading up.

    Bugeye is a great one to find, and they are pretty attainable. But as the other say, take your time. You want to find one that is as much as stock as it can be, with a good maintenance history documented. This will save you a LOT of headaches in the future and ensure you have a good car that should last well into very high mileage life. Goodluck!

    I've had numerous cars including a focus svt, a focus zx3, suzuki swift gt's, subaru rs coupe, ford fiestas, and much more. You won't be unsatisfied with the Subaru. It's a great car.

    Glad to hear it from someone who's had a Subaru. Oddly enough I don't know anyone who's had a Subaru before lol. Are there any issues that the WRX's are known for? Anything I should be on the lookout for when buying one? I'm definitely going to search high and low for one that's completely stock. Also, what is considered high mileage for these cars? I am going to try to find one with less than 100k on it, but I've seen listings online for Subarus with way over 200k that still look really good. Clearly they're a long-lasting car and I want to get one that's going to last me a very long time and hopefully not give me too many headaches along the way lol.

    Coupla good stickies to check out:

    Complete USED WRX Buying Checklist

    How to Buy a Used WRX or STI

    I'd be less concerned about mileage than finding one that is stock and with maintenance records. Feel free to post up any ads you're considering and we can chime in with our $0.02!
