Question Used '99 2.5 RS (or) New '02 2.5 TS

Hi! Can you help me to make my decission?
I found an used '99 2.5 RS with 80000 km.
However, since the engine was having problem (due to the after market controller), the engine has been exchanged with a brand new one under the warranty. Now this person would like to trade in this one to go for a WRX. If I buy this used rs, there are still 1 year or 20000km warranty. Is this good? Comparing to a 2002 2.5 TS which is selling for CAD$22000 (around USD$13500-14500), how much would make the used one good to buy?

I heard that the '99 RS do not have LSD. Does it make a very big different on cornering? Will you decide not to buy this used one because of the missing LSD?

Where can I find out more on the '99 RS on the web?

Speak too much, but thx for your suggestions and comments

but in that special case for the car has run 80000km but the engine has been replaced, how much would be a good bargain for a 99 2.5 RS? For a 2002 TS, it is around USD$13500-14500 as a posted price. However, 2002 RS is around USD$16500-18000 as posted. Base on the price for the new model, how much should the '99 2.5 RS be?

In my opinion, a fair price would be between $10K-$11K. Also, true, the 99RS does not have LSD, but neither does the TS. I had a 99RS, and liked it. I would buy the TS simply because it is a brand new car.
