I'm close to purchasing a 2005 WRX. I asked the dealer if the anti-theft system that the car is pre-wired for included an immobilizer. Everyone at the dealership thought that the system included one, but could not find anything that explicitly stated it. They contacted Subaru today to find out, who told them that it did include an immobilizer.

Just wondering if anyone can confirm this info.

Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I probably should have mentioned that I already knew that the STI has the immobilizer in the key. They're telling me that the optional security system (not the keyless entry) on the WRX has an immobilizer.

Am I wrong in assuming that the optional security system with the immobilizer is the upgraded one that comes with the auto-dimming rear mirror?

True, but you can( and I did) get the Security System upgrade separately. So does the Security System Upgrade kit include an immobilizer?

The factory security system has an ignition kill if the alarm is tripped.
So is an ignition kill basically an immobilizer? Or is the difference, that the car would start if they could get in without tripping the alarm? Where an immobilzer wouldn't start unless the key/chip was used?

the imobillizer system is only for the sti . its built in too the whole electrical system and ecu . you can not add it on it comes from the factory only. the standerd security upgrade for the regular wrx is good for one thing only opening the doors. I wont get into details cause the car thiefs allways read are threads.
