I am about to purchase a WRX. However, I am stuck between either the 02 "bug eye" version or the 04 "blob eye" version. Can anyone tell me which one I should choose so I can finally buy one :tongue:? Thanks in advance.
I recommend a 2003. You'll need to do some searching to find out when the transmission gear width was changed. 2002's are known to have "glassbox" transmissions. However, if you don't shift like an ape - they'll be ok.
Thanks for the suggestions so far. The widening of the gearbox makes me nervous with the 03. Am i going to have difficulty with that? Any other suggestions on what year to get? Also, what is the main difference between an 03 and an 02? Thanks.
I'd take the 2002 wrx. Although I may be a little biased since I own one. I added quite a bit of hp to my wrx before changing to a custom transmission. I never had my original break on me but don't launch it too much once you do add some hp to it or you will.
