I'm pretty stoked to be on here. I'm looking for a WRX right now and have been reading these forums religiously. The car buying threads have been wicked helpful so far. I do have a question for you guys concerning rex buying though. Right now I'm checking out two cars. One's an '03 WRX wagon, black, original owner, 138k miles, some rust on the rear wheel wells, he's putting in a new tranny (5 speed) and claims to have "broken it in correctly"(his words), asking $5500. The other is a 2004 WRX wagon, black, 141k miles, clean body, and the engine looks clean, asking $8,900. Both claim to be stock with no engine mods. The '03 sounds like a solid win right now but the body rust concerns me. I have an '03 legacy wagon right now with the same deal. Bought it two years ago and the "minor" rust on the wheel wells is pretty much gobbling up the back quarter panels. SO is it worth it to spend more on a solid body with more miles or go with the cheaper one and get the body work done somewhere?
