[/quote] Second..... and most obvious reason for the swap vs. buying a WRX/STi is the price of INSURANCE!! its way cheaper for a 2.5i than a Turbo car, About half the price, I know this because I had a 05 STi and 03 WRX at one time. My insurance company uses your Vin# to base the vehicle make & model off of, yes they are aware of the swap and said if its factory Subaru parts then they dont care, any body shop will just get the price of repairs and parts for what they see.[/quote]
