WRX running costs??

Hey people. I'm new to this site, and was after some info on running costs.

Currently driving a '03 206 GTi, but it is TOO slow, am after something faster.
Either going for the CTR or an '03 WRX.

How much more are the running costs of a WRX compared to my GTi?

eg.... i currently get about 34mpg and spend 40-50 a week on petrol.
Last service cost 350.

8) hi mate & welcome to the site .............

firstly i thyink your insurance will deff cost more as for petrol THAT depends on how you drive :twisted: :twisted:
The servicing is another matter , it'l depend on what model you get plus IF it has any warrenty on it .......
WARRENTY will mean a trip to your local dealer & probably pay dealer prices........ :wink: :wink:

I currently get around 20 mpg and spend alot on petrol :P (but i get most back from the company)
My last service was free as im with the threee years free service deal. My previous 99turbo service @ subaru was 500 @ 60k (but this is a big one as mentioned above)

My guess on insurance - will go up by 300 to 500

Please keep us informed of results and good luck with your purchase - YOU WONT REGRET IT :twisted: :P
