This is a discussion on 2008+ WRX within the Personal For Sale & Wanted forums, part of the ClubWRX.net Marketplace category; I wouldn't suggest a car older then 11 though. The 08-10 had engine problems and now firewall welds breaking...

    Yup and that's essentially the plan. After the initial mods I will move to the bigger things. 1st I need to finish my S14 build.

    As much as I'd love to get a "newer" WRX, my budget still stands @ 17.5k max and I'm not really having any luck finding the later years in this price range.

    Again, my budget is pretty much set, I can't lie to myself there. Also, it appears that SOA (in nearly most cases) is fixing the spot weld issue free of charge.

    Well, with a little help from my awesome wife, I was able to bump my budget up a bit and get something newer! I remember seeing a post here in the for sale section, of a red 2011 WRX. Luckily, it wasn't sold! I got the check from the bank today and will be picking the car up Wednesday!

    Here's the link to the For Sale thread
    . I cannot wait to get it!

    Woot woot!!!
