What should I be looking to pay?

Hello all.

New to forum and with a recent change of jobs (one round the corner) with no travelling the country I can now do away with my diesel .

Always wanted a scooby (the sound) so now I'm getting one in the summer.

Question is what should I be looking to pay for one ?

My ideal would be an sti hatch but seem a tad high in price .

A realistic budget would be around 8k so what would be Best Buy?
I can't seem to see any for sale on here.
I see a lot of 2.5 wrx with "sti" upgrades but what's the actual difference between the two ?

Cheers

avoid the 2.5 unless it`s already been forged . . . or save 3k ready.

2.5's in what moddle? I thought it was just the Pistons that went if you tuned it above 360+ but there seems to be a lot to say about the 2.5's

Its all 2.5's, see link below Subaru already know, basically if you get a 2.5 model Subaru is telling you not to modify the engine leave it stock.

So basically Subaru messed it up but didn't want to pay the cost for a recall so passed the blame off. Think il look towards a 2.0sti or wrx then.
Thanks mate 👍🏻

Take a look at the '06 wrx model. It has 2.5 with the 4 pot front brakes which is good.
