and NOT something else? I know I want something I can beat up at the track and still dd it. What about you? :drive2:
You can come and (try) and smoke my Porsche any time.....Because I like to smoke Aston Martins and Porsches with my superior 0-60mph times all while driving a rally car br0!
They weren't plagued with engine failures, but they are more likely to have been beat on.1beastnstl said:Reliability wise, would 02-06 be any better than the newest Subies? If so, in what ways? I know if I go Subie, I won't want a 5sp will try and find a 6sp but other than that, anything make one body style more reliable?
STi's in general are pretty much the same across the board. In 2008 they switched to a double wishbone setup in the rear so they have an advantage there, but older models (excluding 2004) are all pretty much the same with slight mechanical changes, and the obvious change in body styles. 2004 was a bit of a stripped down car that came with very little by way of comforts. 2007+ STI's have a different rear diff and thereby final drive ratio than previous years, but I doubt that's going to affect your purchase decision.
