^Not true. Changing a wrx and sti can be sometimes cheaper than selling a wrx and buying a sti. Now if you don't know anything about cars and paying for labor then yea might be higher but most of the time its not. Not to mention cheaper insurance, etc.
OP The difference in price tag at the dealer has to tell you the wrx and sti are a little different than just some mounting bracket and wire. Their is a good amount different but their is a lot more that is actually the same. Since you don't even know the difference for you I would recommend selling the car and buying the sti if that is what you want. Or just read up a whole whole lot and the more you know the more you will see that doing a sti swap is not that expensive
