Just a heads up, the 08 WRX is hated in the WRX cummunity, It is referred to as the Redheaded bastard stepchild! Subaru soften the body lines, soften the suspension, gave it a small turbo. the following year they did some upgrading.

Now I had a 08, found out all this info after the fact, It made me like it even more, because every one on NASIOC tore it apart. After some sway bars, end links, a Bilstein/RCE setup and a full TBE, and a Stage 2 Map. it was OK in my book.

Also when I was looking the 08's were priced a little lower, mine was $18,200 with 32K on it back in 2010. also the early production year had the ringland issues, so check the build date. go onto to NASOIC and search for that info. there are a couple other things people didn't like about them, but if the build date is of a later date, and all Maintenace is up to date, and it's in your price range, with a little extra cash it can be a fun car to have!
