            RS Libs are in the same boat too - can't find a good one.
            Yeah RS Liberties went through double the Skint Owner Syndrome, they were a cheap performance car which didn’t get maintenance, then a few years later they were a cheap not-as-quick-as-a-WRX that didn’t get maintenance. Plus they had all the gearbox problems of the first WRX.

            And had a propensity for being used in bank robberies ...
            Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

              Yeh I wouldn’t buy a GC8. They were great in the 90s but not any more. A 2005 STI would be the pick I think!

                Hence clean body gc8 with a 2005 STi driveline conversion,

                  Also known, due to the GC8's lack of torsional rigidity, as "the pretzel conversion".

                    i'd love an '05 sti but i don't mind the GC8. slightly more classic shape and whilst not 'fast' certainly quick enough on the street imo, great fun up in the hills.
                    shame about the shitful five speed though.
                    apart from that it's served us well.

                        that's probably what it's worth, it's not a genuine sti, previous owner put the dress up bits on. does have sti gearbox and some other bling parts at least.

                          Well, it does look nice and I wouldn't be getting rid of it for $15k (unless to me).

                            If you are going to get an 04, get the 05. Upgrading from 100x5 to 114.3x5 is a complete headfuck and worthwhile.

                                Left of field but I'm interested in the manual 07-08 Sti Liberty, relatively short production run in Aus ~300 and can still be had for ~20k.
