    Hello

    One of our most enjoyable allrounders was a 2006MY WRX 2.5 with Prodrive PP and Prodrive spring kit (owned for 10 years). Bags of power and torque - 5 speed box, in my opinion, perfect rather than current STI's too close 6 speeder. If struts prove to be a problem, KYB superior gas struts can no doubt be sourced from an independent supplier at a decent cost. Don't think of Subaru prices!

    Hello everyone

    Hi Roy, car look s awesome. 👍

    Hello

    Hi Kyle and welcome. All the above advice is good. 👍 I would only add that if you are looking for a WRX I would be looking for an unmodified one. There are many WRX's out there that have had bits bolted on to give them STI levels of power on the WRX internals. Looks good for 10 minutes but often costs more later on. If you are wanting a little bit more power then look for an STI instead.

    Hello everyone

    It can only go up in value. Look after it! After three classics, incuding a RB5 PPP, a blob eye, a hawk and current WRX STI, quite like Subaru!

    Hello everyone

    Hi mate ye it's a rb320

    Hello

    Welcome Kyle,. Good history and well looked after is more important than mileage I would say. Opinions suggest the 2 litre motor ( blob) is more reliable than the 2.5 in the hawk, but that's a big generalisation. Hawks are a touch newer so it's down to individual cars. Drive both before you decide what power characteristics suits you. Money spent well on good maintenance ( like tensioners along with / at Cambelt time) carries more weight for me than money spent on mods, unless you want those particular mods. Get the undertray off and check the crossbeam under the rad for rust,. Often the first place to start. Good luck with your search. take your time. Cheers

    Hello

    Thanks for the reply, trying to do as much research as possible before going for one, been looking out for standard ones, not a great deal of them out there but will keep looking, will also look out for the struts, seen a good example last week but it had quite a bit of blue smoke which put me off

    Hello everyone

    Welcome. Is that a RB320?
  17. johnmacdonald

    Hello

    Welcome. Best to look out for a standard car (perhaps with highly regarded Prodrive Performance Pack), decent service history, especially timing belt replacement if appropriate. You can always carry put some mods once the proud owner. Knocking struts are a known problem...

    If you look on the j g a Staffordshire detailed valeting Instagram or Facebook page there is loads of photos of it. It was a very clean original car. Now had 120+ hrs spent on detailing it. I was wondering what decent shows there are to take it to?

    2015 WRX STi Struts/Shocks

    After my experience they dont understand or deal with suspension or performance issues. I will NEVER use a Desler again I will always use a specialist I not surprised dealer incorrectly fitted suspension or guessed the wrong fault. I doubt they will redress all your losses. Regards tony
