Looking to buy a wrx from a 350z
So I have always loved sports cars, so I finally decided to get a 350z, a car I have always loved. I have never owned a sports car before, so I figured a 350z in auto would be perfect. Well it is a great car, lot of fun, but I am finding myself wanting something with more power, something I can tune easily and something with manual transmission. So i narrowed the field down to a subaru wrx, 09 or up.
I am going to look around at used ones, but If I don't find anything I might buy it new.
I am very new to this car, I don't know much about it. I test drove it today and loved it though. How does maintenance compare to a car like a 350z? More expensive, less expensive? Also, How is the long term reliability? I know the 350z can go for 200k miles if it is well taken care of, can the subaru do the same?
Last, I am not a fan of the rear end of the car, especially the tail lights. I was just wondering if there are any modifications that you guys are doing to the car, the rear end, to make it look a little less bulky and smoother looking?
Also, any known issued with these cars I should be aware of. Like certain years?
Thanks so much guys!
