Insurance, how can this be??? WRX vs STI

Hi Guys

Been looking at a few scoobys recently, both WRX & STI, obviously with the WRX being a cheaper, and less powerful car i ASSUMED that it would be cheaper to insure. However my quotes have come back as follows:

2002 Subaru Impreza WRX AWD 2.0
4,257.96

2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STI
1767.95

I've tried on various websites (price comparison AND companies which arent on those) and all are the same, the WRX is coming back as 3 times more expensive than the STI.

How can this be? Realy dont understand it!

Thanks

I also found that i was asked for proof of a tracker on my wrx but when i got the sti, they weren't interested. Even when i told them it had one i was told that because the system doesn't flag it up, the tracker won't reduce the price! Insurance companies work in strange ways!
