Thoughts on this WRX? I miss driving a Subaru.

This is currently listed local. The owner may even be on ClubSUB?

 

It's super tidy and seems like it's a very good buy. I don't have much idea about Version 2 STI's, especially wagons. Thoughts?

It looks quite nice. It may or may not have a closed deck engine, since it was rebuilt too and the price isn't bad. 

Only issue with that era car, is you're limited in terms of mods, as phase one engine.  Give it a good once over at a mechanics on a hoist.

Nice one that v2 but iv seen a v4 sti gf8 for 7k on tm right now that'd be much quicker. But its been to the moon and back in terms of kms.

Another question if someone can answer: How can we tell that it is a legitimate STI?

Sti use a different turbo from wrx, check engine number, check vin/frame no. There's a big thread on here titled 'is my wrx an sti?' it should help if you get the vin and compare it to the list. 

 

Anyone can add stickers/badges for the +10bhp

Most people won't be changing out the manufacturers plate with applied model code on. Look at that first.
