    Agree, the STI Widebody hatches will become a hero car. Probably have only a little bit more to depreciate and then the ship will be at the port.

    2dr. Purely because 2dr.
    That’s why I don’t think the 4drs imported in the next model-year will do as well over a WRX.

    I thought they'd started at the ~$60k they were imported as, and by, say, 3 years later any without 800k kms of track usage & three assploded engines were worth what they'd cost new, and they'd slowly embiggened in value since?
    Or not?

    I've been looking for a low perfect body/interior wise MY00 Wrx in in crystal silver for ages. Just just don't turn up.

    If could find one I'll squirrel it away until I find donor MY05 sti to transplant mechanicals.

    ​​​​​​Sigh...

    GC8 2 door STi would have been my pick.

    Think the ship has sailed on GC8s and now others are catching up

    edit: I have no idea.

    Agree, i was thinking an early STI may still be a good pick up.... Otherwise hit me with some other ideas?

  • Early WRX's, what models will be desirable in the future?

    I know this is a bit of a crystal ball topic, but what model WRX's will be desirable in the future?

    After selling my R32 GTR a 8 years back and watching it appreciate, I'm thinking one of these may be a good investment to put in the back of my garage.

    Any advice or other suggestions would be appreciated

Working...
