Alright i just sold my 02wrx for 6 grand and am looking to buy a new wrx or sti.
I found a clean 06 wrx that’s stock only has stage 2 clutch, with 85,000 miles, and its wingless for only $11,500.
The color of the car is dark silver. I have bought new Rota Grid Wheels it will look good on the wrx.

my second pick is a 05 Sti
the car is rally blue with a carbon fiber hood that pretty much it for looks. The car only has 70,000 miles on it. Plus it has a full turbo back exhaust with upgraded EWG on the vf39. My friend is selling to me for $16,000

My plan is a 12second car.
I have bad driving record so my insurance will be high.
If i get the sti for 16000 i will have to take a loan for 10grand.
If i get the wrx for 11500 i will have to take a loan for 6grand.

Plus if I get the sti my insurance would be like 500 a month.

can anyone help me decide.

1) i wouldnt get the wrx because the mileage is outrageously high & a stage 2 clutch causes extra wear & tear on the transmission. there's no need for it on a stock car.

2) i wouldnt get the sti either because it's been previously modded.

STi will carry a higher insurance but has the 6-speed

Thw WRX is a good year for a WRX, but the mileage is high and a stage 2 clutch on a stock car seems fishy to me for some reason

They've both been modded, so, I'd avoid them. It's harder but I'd look for something 100% stock.

What Dez said. Finding an 05 with that low miles is pretty rare.

Stay away from the 04. (turbo swap, etc......) This was the entire emphasis on not putchasing the 06 or the STi. Modded!

go test drive. look for signs of being previously modded (no heatshield by the downpipe is a tell-tale sign usually).. if it drives fine and you like it... then yes get it asap!

STi

Get the STi because if you get the WRX you will want to mod it with parts to make it like an STi. Been there and done that with my previous 2004 WRX. IMO.:thumbup:

That STi has to many miles, IMO. I'd go look over the WRX real well it sounds like it could be a nice one!? A low mile STi will be way more money is another reason I'd say the low mile WRX will be a good choice.

So you're saying 70,000 miles on an 05 is too high but 85,000 miles on an 06 isn't? :screwy:
