    Hi

    Hi im another new guy, I am finally merging over to the Subaru world from the BMW I am an owner of a 1990 325i (e30) no where near stock. I am in the market for a wrx or 2.5 rs. Is a 2.5 rs a wrx only without a turbo or is there more to it are there any tranny differences or even differential differences? I donít much care about esthetics I just want to go fast. Looking forward to hanging out hear.

    Greetings and welcome!

    The 2.5 RS is non-turbo (normally aspirated 2.5 liter) and the WRX has the turbo engine. From 2002 Ė 2005 the WRX had a 2.0 liter; 2006 Ė 2007 uses a 2.5.

    We look forward to having you hang out here.

    yea

    In my experiences, I would highly recommend WRX not 2.5rs. 2.5 very slow. WRX very fast.

    I'm from the same background, driving Bimmers before (In my mind) graduating to Wrexs. You'll find the WRX more enjoyable than the 2.5RS

    To make it simple, it's like comparing a 325i to a 335i. Obviously 335i w. Twin Turbo is a lot more fun

    Good to have you here!
