    Yes 02-03 WRX only

    04 was the first year of the STi.. Kinda a lame version deffinately worth finding an 05+ if possible.

    05 was the same body as the 04 technically but a little better lot of bugs worked out.

    06 was a body change went ugly imo also has a different turbo.

    07 stayed the same as the 06 but they had a different turbo.

    08 is another different body that just got fugly.

    2005 the WRX used a 2.0 liter motor

    In 2006 the wrx upgraded to a 2.5 liter motor and really good brakes.

    2007 wrx stayed pretty much the same as the 06.

    2008 wrx body changed and brakes went back to crap.

    09 the wrx has a few options... The wrx upgraded the turbo giving 265 hp but stayed with the 5 speed trans and crappy brakes. You can also purchase a WRX GT which is basically the same as the 08 WRX (227 hp)

    Prices really vary on mileage, year, location and blah blah best to check out New Cars, Used Cars, Blue Book Values & Car Prices - Kelley Blue Book

    What's up Oregonians. Going to be comming home for a few weeks this summer to visit the family and go to a buddies wedding in Eugene. Tentative dates are Aug 10-28th. Curious if there are any drives that are usually scheduled around that time of year or any regular meets happening in Southern Oregon (from Klamath Falls). I sold my bugeye after owning it for a year and am concentrating on the 08. Got the ok from the wife to do a VF52 swap amongst a few other things. Just waiting on taxes. So hopefully that will be complete come this summer.

    suspension help...

    I have a 2003 wrx and I know Jen has Endura-Techs on her Forester so I got that covered but my issue is trying to find a good comfertable coilover for dd. I would be willing to do springs/strut but the wheel gap in the front drives me crazy! So if anyone knows of a good spring strut set up that combats the front fender gap unlike the majority of the springs out there please let me know. Also I'm lookin for someone that has Stance LX+ coilovers in the area, and the TiC SST coilovers. Please if anyone ca help me out I want to know what the opinion is of these set ups for daily driving. Or if possible I could ride in the car to see for myself. Jen I will hit you up as soon as I have time to ride in the Forester. Thanks all!

    you need to take a ride in the forester. its a comfortable coilover and does well in performance. Forester rides nice, looks good low and performs great. hope to see you soon!

    I personally wouldn't consider coilovers for a dd. If your concerned about raising and lowering I'd keep the factory springs/struts for winter and a performance setup for the other 10 months. But I'm just that retarded

    I've had coilovers on both of my subaru's as Daily drivers ....on my wrx (when it was my daily driver and but now only in the front) and forester. If anyone knows me they know how picky I am about the ride of my car! LOL I'll complain to bobby til I'm blue in the face... LOL. He has put on Cusco's and DMS CO's and I was not happy at all!!! Nor did they stay my forester for long either! I'm happy with my CO's I have now. (Endura-Tech ftw) I drive my car everywhere! Another thing I like is I can lower my car and make it higher when I please. I've had a few different CO on my forster and the Endura tech is by far the BEST! Its even softer of a ride on the softest setting then my stock STi suspension was... But I guess if you're not sure about them then maybe you should start out with springs/struts combo.

    I just buy struts and springs to best fit my needs and run them. I don't need the adjustability coilovers offer. I never change the car other than alignment after I lower them. I set it ad forget it.

    I wish I could do strut/spring but everytime I see a WRX with springs and that front fender gap I throw up in my mounth... lol basically I hate it. And so far I have not found a springs that takes the measurement from hub to fender to around 13.25" or 13.5. If you know of a spring let me know and pics if you have any. I drive an 03 wrx. So far the closest I have come is the H&R. But people say those suck. This is why I must run coils for dd. Any help please?
