Buy a beater.

Seriously though. . .I've already spent about that much on my car. Modified everything from engine to suspension. The only other thing I haven't touched is interior dress-up items.

Trade it in for an 05 Legacy GT wagon, then upgrade that with STi drivetrain and suspension.

i'd go with sti ver 6 motor with 6 spd tranny. although, in my last post i would like to drop the ver 8 motor in there with the tranny. the sucka would be fun, but like i said, i don't want to die from speed. ....i would also buy new rims and put some decent suspension mods on.

If I was forced to spend 15K on my WRX and couldn't just trade up or spend the money on wiser things....I would drop in the 2.2 liter turbocharged motor (if I could find one!), custom 6spd tranny with sixth gear being an overdrive (much taller than the USDM STi 6th gear), and some suspension work probably Eibach springs and a suitable replacement strut keep swaybars stock, iON/KVR two piece brake rotors (with red hats to match the car) with AP calipers that still clear 16" wheels and wow that would probably total $15K right there....any leftover I would paint my sideskirts. I already have two sets of 16" wheels with great tires, so I'm good on those.
