Re: advice on buying a 2008 wrx sti

Put a link for the advert so we can see it. Me personally I would only buy a standard, unmolested car. That way I know that any mods I do have been done properly. I don't like the hatchback, it looks awful, that's probably why they've gone back to saloon cars now.

Re: advice on buying a 2008 wrx sti

well,i see Zen have had a hand i tuning,so no worries there,cosworth build by maindealer= result...

best bet fella is to go for a testdrive,check the documentation and contact previous owner or subaru main dealer to find out a little more as to why the cosworth parts were installed,was it a failier that occured of was it the owners continueous lust for more power...just cover all angels..
