Default Rs

i own an 03 RS. I used to work at a subaru dealership here in NY and have driven the full line...TS, RS, WRX and STi. Realistically speaking the TS/RS would be the better option, as insurance prices in NY are rediculous. The WRX/STi insurance rates can get as high as 50% over those of the TS/RS. Also, if you go for the RS sedan, there are a ton of mods that you can do to the car becasue the engine is exactly the same as the previous model RS, and all body components from the wrx will fit the RS as well. for example i am running an 03 RS with the following mods.

-c-west v2 front bumper
-zerosports cf fender vents
-injen cai
-borla headers
-a'pexi N1 catback exhaust
-rotora bbk
-stainless steel braided lines fornt and rear
-stop tech rear rotors
-18" gunmetal zeo's w/ 225/40/18 nitto neogens
-flashed ecu

with all of this i have 197 whp with 216 fpt

needless to say dont be discouraged there is plenty for us RS owners also

well thats my 2 cents

good luck
