Default Buying a Used Accessport

I have an 2005 WRX with uppipe and tbe. I want to buy a used accessport. Can I buy a 02 or 03 accessport and use the updater software for the 2005 or do I need to buy the 04 and use the updater software. Thanks, David.

you cant use the 02-03 accessport I know that for a fact. Supposedly you can buy an 04 and get a specific 05 map and it will work, obviously the easiest choice is to just buy an 05 one. I would like to hear from someone who bought a 2004 accessport and downloaded a map to use it on their 05 though.

I have an 05' WRX and I bought an 04' AP. All you need to do is download the 05' firmware into the AP and run it. It's that simple. 04-05 are interchangable on wrx's I have no idea about sti's though.

I just bought new for the correct year. In the end it was only $95 more. Ive just heard too many stories of APs sold without being unmarried. An AP going for anything much under $500 I would be wary about.

That is so true. If you have to send the unit back to Cobb, they change a hundred bucks or more for the reprogaming of the unit.
