Subaru also has the highest predicted residual value in the INDUSTRY, so when cars roll off the lot, they don't lose nearly as much value as other cars would. 20 still seems a bit high, but not completely off the mark.

What wheels are you running? They look awesome. Are those the 17's or 18's off the sti?
What NA said, but thank you!! Some of my buddies thought I was crazy going out of my way to try and find a set of those wheels instead of just getting aftermarket wheels, but I'm really happy I went through the trouble to find them. Also, I thought it was neat that the '14 WRX Mule we got test shots of this summer had these wheels on the modified 4th Gen Impreza they were using for the base.
