How much did you pay for your WRX?? I'm just trying to get an estimate... a new one is around $36000 so I'm guessing a 2003 WRX would be cheaper by a few grand?

With tax they are about $40,000 with no options I think. That is the price when they are brand new. If you go with a old one they will be cheaper.

Yea, 2 doors are always better but I think the WRX is aesthetically better looking with 4 doors because the old 2.5rs coupes did not work at all and the body of the WRX and 2.5rs are the same even though the WRX only came out a few years ago after the 2.5rs

I think they want you to strap your mom and dad in back seat and go autocrossing......J/K
They do a 4dr style because ppl might want to drive their family around town and not just autocrossing, same theory as 4dr M3.......

Insurence is cheaper that way. They seem to have always used 4 door for the rally. So I quess they keeped it that way when it came time to sell it.

Just ignore "Door Knob" Rob. I like the new STI and old style, but only if the old one has the Morette headlights (see pics below).



Here are some sweet WRX tuning sites!

HIM, what are you doing with your BMW, selling it or just adding a WRX to the collection?

anyways, WRX's are amazing machines, I was also trying to convince my dad to buy one too...and not to mention the AWD, perfect for our ****ed up canadian winters!
