Owned mine for a year and it was a
piece of crap. It had problems with
everything from the suspension (5
times), ECU, exhaust, windows, interior
falling apart, fan rattling. Got to a
point where I was dealing with the
regional representative on every visit.
No mods, just a junk build. Major turbo
lag and significant lack of low end
power. Terrible experience. Some
owners get mad when reading this, but I
too drooled over the release of the
WRX. If the quality isn't there, it
cut it. Run away from this purchase
and shop for something else. Lost
tremendous amount on it after only a
Burst of power when turbo spooled, I
like the front styling.
Build quality -- learn what it is and
try to apply some of it. If you put
300 horsepower into a steaming pile of
dung, all you have is really fast crap.
