Go out and buy a 2014 WRX. Then you will have a fun sporty car with no worries of tuning or anything and it will be reliable. No one is forcing you to tune any car you have.
If you don't have the time then you shouldn't buy an older turbo charged car IMO.
I just found out today that the 2009 WRX that I bought two months ago is in fact a 2008 wrx. Yes the vin says 2009 but after two very stressful days of trying to get to the bottom of my question, all started by a brand new COBB AP, I now know for sure my car only has 225 HP. It has the smaller turbo on a 2.5 l motor. I paid 19,900 for my car, Plus 3500 for the aftermarket warranty till it hits 200,000 km to time limit, Then taxes. I live in canada, so prices are a bit different. I overpaid for what is now a 2008 WRX. So I am very confused at to what i should/could do. The bottom line Is I am not happy with the amount of power I have for the money I paid. So to increase the power, I will have to void my Warranty. So If I am not going to have a warranty then why dont I sell my car and buy something older that has been modified and had lots of its parts changed out and has the power I am after, Example
I could sell my ride for 17000. I hope. Buy this car. Still have 10000 to fix anything wrong with it. And still have money left over to act as a warranty in case something does break. I really only bought something newer as I wanted the warranty. but have covered that already
Or this fine example. I could buy this. I might lose a grand or two trying to get this one. But I wont have to worry about upgrading or fixing this car.
Since I am very new to suburus this is why I am asking for some advice. i live in a town were we will have alot of snow for the next four to five months. So AWD is a must. I want something safe and fun to drive. If anyone has some advice for me please chime in. As I said to get more power out of my car I will need a DP and maybe a new turbo, injectors etc...and with that I ###### wont break 300HP. And because I am getting close to 100,000 kms à(2 78,000 now) there is the timing belt to worry about coming up, clutch, ball joint, tie rods, I could go on about what things I need to watch out for coming up. i really didnt get a WRX so i could spend alot of time tuning and fixing it. I am 38 years old and dont have the time for that as I have three kids to spend my time with. I just want a fast sporty and safe ride to rip around in when i fell like it. Please only reply if you have something valid to say. I dont need to hear ,
just be happy with what I have!!
get a DP and call it a day!!
Thanks in advance to all valid advice.
