As for colors, I would go white. The black looks really nice, but black cars in general are hard to keep clean, and prevent chips/swirls, and the subaru paint is absolutely horrible so I wouldn't risk it.
I say got silver or white. Silver is the most balanced, but white looks amazing when it is clean.

are there any bad aspects of the 06 or 05 that is worse then the other. I hear the 06 had bad motor mounts. is there anything more major?
and I know I can search and find this but its a lot easier to just have it here.
Welcome to the club!
I have a white car right now and it is a ***** to keep clean. I assume black is the same way. Silver is right in between so I'd go with that. Sure, black looks nice and adds some class, but the maintenance factor.. damn.
Problem with silver is that it is all too common. What, they don't have WRB for 06?

Welcome to the club. I'm a noob here and so far it's been great here. I've learned a lot in the 3 months I've been here. I purchased a 2006 wrx in white with no wing. I've washed it once a week by hand (recommended not to go through the auto car washers; can damage the paint). I noticed that dirt builds up a lot on the back bumper; even after just a day of driving. I get a lot of dash build up too. Oh!! this kills me... the car isn't all that big (enough room for me being only 5'10") and I fit perfect. But the first couple days I was getting in and out I would accidently kick the door right by the speaker. Almost every time I did it would leave a small mark on the door. Anyway, the car is amazing!!! I'll have a bad day at work or be upset with some girl and as soon as I see my car I just want to drive and by the time I'm home I don't even remember being upset.
Hello, im new to! I have not bought a wrx yet but its on my list. How are reliability issues with them? Thats the only thing that scares me off. My list conists of a 350z, a evo, cooper s, rsx type s, g35 coupe. Im just confused. Im not new in the knowledge of the car. Ive been watching rally since i was young and have seen it grow into what it is. Good luck with your purchase.
Most cars today aren't that abd in terms of reliability. All of those will last you a long time if you maintain it right. In stock form the Subaru will probably be the most reliable of the bunch.
I got me a black 06 and it is a pain to keep clean and there is an assload of swirlies in the clear coat now...... but I love it and you dont see the imperfections at 130mph My womans got an 02 rsx type s that shifts smoother that my wrx but you definately gotta use all 6 gears just to cruise at 40-45mph. I know the v-tech loves r's but to me it seems like its too much. A nd the steering is stiffer than a piss hardon. The plus side is that the K20 has endless upgrades. Because I just cant leave cars alone I'm probably gonna be soopin her ride up too (hee hee)
