A normal WRX cut is still just a 205 as well. Sti cut = more dollars.

Another one on the do not mod a RX train.

Those mods listed are probably 3-4k worth.

Your car is worth what... 3-4k?

6-8k will get you a

-RS Lib or converted Lib with fruit (suspension at the least, probably 4 pots etc) - for reference see what my old RS had when it sold to lachlan - full of really good bits - rims, 4k worth of suspension, sti seats, boost controller, exhaust, intake etc etc etc, and was in really good condition.

-A GC8 needing love, but you have a RX which needs paint love anyhow so you are no worse off.
Ah yes, I agree.

I was under the impression that the owner was attached to the car. My suggestion would cost u a lot more in the long run and require dedication to the build. My bad

Cost difference between your car and a WRX of the same year will be way, way, way less than the money you plan to spend on mods.
