I love my 02 RS and like the fact that it generates so much argument. It's also pretty cool that there aren't many around. I have yet to actually see one besides mine on the road. Tons of Rexs around though.
I also think us '02 RS owners get a pretty sweet deal. Think of it... we get all of the proven 2.5L engine mods and they're all readily available and lots of people have experience with them PLUS we get all of the new fresh body kits and new product hype surrounding the WRX.
Let's see what new products become available for the <=01 RS's over the next year or so.
