Default Best Year WRX and STi??

I know alot of you are going to say that the 09' WRX is the best ever but I want to know what was the best WRX ever made before the 09' came out?

Also STi's are included.

The 2006 WRX and 2005 STi get my votes

mmmm i think its too early to say that the 09 wrx is the best so far...09 STi is arguable but alot of people will say 06 wrx, 04 STi...I say 04 STi because it was the most RAW...but I like the 05 and 06 STi

Agreed.
06 wrx 2.5l a world of improvement over the 2.0l

04 sti felt the most raw and also the most tail happy!!!
05 felt a tad slower but was sharper in the handeling department.
06sti felt a little snappier and improved again in handeling
07 sti was laggier until 3500rpm and better gearing to...

This question should be banned along with the "what insurance" question

It's like saying: "Who has prettier looking kids? You or Me?

blah blah blah.

1998-2001 GC8 JDM... there..

For best "value" I'd say 06/07 would be best since it pretty much is the most factory pimped WRX. 2.5L engine, 4 pot/2 pot, TR option, etc. Just a shame it has the pignose front end though

+1 for the $$$ the 06-07 WRX is pretty much the best deal.

Are you saying the TR option is "pimp"?
The whole point of a TR is that it was unpimped.

Best WRX - 05 (Newer interior, blob eye, 2.0 FTMFW)
Best STi - 04 (The key says it all!)

Perhaps this thread might be better served by a poll?

Given that it's mostly a matter of personal preference, I'd have to say the MY06/07s.

I cant get into bugeyes. The design just looks too dated and the headlights look like a neon to me.

06+ wrx wins on engine, 04-05 wrx on looks.

2004 STi es el mejor pero el 08 STi crecen en mí. Por supuesto hay un botón de la búsqueda que trabaja en este sitio y muchos hilos en aquí acerca de este mismo tema. Así que por favor parada, piensa, la búsqueda y respuesta antes de crear.

Judging from all the different opinions... I would say All WRX's and STI's were and are the best.... after my bugeye of course

Really though... it should be even across the board... they all have a unique personality which is what makes a Subaru a Subaru
