Wrx

Hi everbody, Im new to the Subaru after many years with RS Turbos. I need some help. I ve been looking at buying a new WRX 2.5 from my local dealers but noticed Motorpoint and others doing them far cheaper, does anybody know what the diffrance is in the 2 cars, is the Motorpoint deal as good as it looks?

motorpoint tend to be parralel imports, none uk models. plus warrenty is an issue with them

you'll get a better bargin from them,but for the price of a wrx at a dealer you'll get an sti from motorpoint, i know which i'd rather have
