also...

WRX Twin-tip exhaust, RS single tip (assuming both stock)
WRX has standard (black) sideskirts, most RS do not (optional, and I believe they're painted)

That's it, from the outside. On the inside, the pedals are different, radio is different, steering wheel is different, maplights, and the tach is different.

The hoodscoop is a dead give away. If the car is standing still you can look at the VIN tag through the windshield and if the 7th digit is a "9" it is a WRX.

You have to be careful here. If the WRX owner opted for the STi exhuast then it is a single tip.
