Which Impreza?

I'm looking to buy my first Impreza. Which model would you recommend and is there anything I should be looking for so I don't get ripped off. It will probably be about 2004/05 reg.

Hi,
Great time to buy.... but remember the golden rules

Service history vital and car of that age should be main dealer or specialist serviced

Write down a list of questions, how long you owned it? why are you selling? what faults are there, does everything work, HPi check it if private sale, take an experienced friend as second pair of eyes, check all paper work and study it carefully, ring main dealer or service agent and check vehicle against their records, etc etc

The buying guide is very very usefull.... check list cover most stuff

Apart from that... you have big selection to choose from... enjoy the hunt and dont rush in

Thanks for the advice. I'm hoping to have about 7500 to spend.
