Looking to upgrade from WRX Bugeye to STI Blobeye

Hey guys!

I own a 2000 WRX bugeye which im pretty happy with, however I've decided to upgrade to an STI. I've found a car that looks quite promising here -> Subaru Impreza WRX STi 2003 | Trade Me

Is there anything specifically that I should look out for when I take it for a test drive? I've heard about transmission problems during those model years, and I was wondering how to tell if its the upgraded transmission?

Thanks guys

If it's a true sti then it has the good transmission. The wrx in the younger years had the "glass" transmissions.

Andy...he's looking at JDM Subarus. Slightly different then USDM and not all the same rules apply.
