Another Newbie "Which Model" Thread

Had a look around but couldn't see any of the which model threads mentioning the newer series of Sub's...

Really like the look of the latest Sub, especially the 2.5 WRX styling, however the running costs and insurance are a little out of my league at the moment even though I could afford the initial price of the car. So my question is, what other lesser power models are offered in this range and how viable are they? Also, what would my options be for imitating the WRX model in this lesser powered model in terms of cost?

As I said, it is the styling and badge of the 2.5 model that appeal to me as opposed to the power and just wondered what my options were of getting the styling while avoiding some of the power costs until I can afford to upgrade to the actual WRX!

Thanks for your time in reading my newbie post

If you Mod a base model to upgrade to the WRX styling you would have to declare the mods to your inssurance company.
Even a change of Alloys would need a notification, just bare this in mind ? Otherwise you could be uninssured if the unfourtunate happened to you.
