My buddy has 2 RS's, one with a japanese STi swap dedicated to autocross and the other dedicated to rallycross. The STi swaped rs is a monster, although I rode in a 2005 sti with 500hp last night. That thing is freakin'



Yeap...some of the RS 2.5 owners usually would swap their engine to sti....

You should get one...even though they're old they still look hella good...and won't break down on you.


Agreed. They're as reliable as a Honda.

Yeah, I couldn't wait that long, so I picked up a WRX instead. I'll probably pick up a GF wagon and swap the wrx motor out, and turn the wagon into a dedicated track car.

Do you have any pictures of your RS?

Howdy.

I had a 2001 2.5RS in Blue Ridge Pearl. Handsdown, it was the best looking car I have ever owned, and probably will ever own. I kept the car bone stock. Despite only having 165 NA ponies, it was still lots of fun to drive. The brakes were decent and it cornered well on the stock suspension. I traded it for a 2002 WRX wagon. Though I loved my waggie, I always missed the 2.5RS. I'm now in a 2008 WRX, and I still miss the 2.5RS. The 08 is nice, though. Comfy and more refined, but still has a little punch when needed. I just received my STI Pink Springs for it yesterday, too! w00t!

I'd love to get my hands on an Impezza, even just the older models like the late 90's. But it's too bad there aren't many Subaru Imprezza WRX being sold in my country, only the brands like Mitsubishi, Toyota, Honda, Ford, and Suzuki are more popular here.

make sure you steer clear of the 1998, i have one ... and 98's are notorious for problems (headgaskets and whatnot) 99 rs's have flimsy Mass air flow sensor films that tend to fail with aftermarket intakes. 00-01 are good, some 2000 rs's and all 2001 rs's have have the 4.11 limited slip rear end in the 5spd manual's. but if you want a cheap fast car, get a 95 subaru impreza L coupe (only year with OBD1 and coupe) and swap in a jdm wrx, or wrx sti motor in it. and all the other wrx goodies. most rs owners wish they went that route. that's just my 2 cents

[purple]Back then when i was still searching for one, i found a rbp 98 subaru rs but they say it's overheating because of the radiator so yea, thank goodness i didn't buy one. I did hear that 98 rs has alot of problems...i love my 01 rs...its da best!!

yeah, because you know aesthetics make a difference in how they get you from point a to point b. (sarcasm)
yes, they are likely to break down as alot of them are old and have high mileage on the internals and shell.
