I dont remember the fake trim being standard... but im not sure on a lot of it....

98 had the DOHCs and was the last of the phase ones

2000 was the first of the 4 doors.... and ya at some point I think they lost the rear lsd but I dont remember when.

The only changes between 2000 and 2001 were cd player standard instead of cassette and the fake CF trim. Everything else was the same as the 00's, including the color choices. The 98 had the DOHC, different front bumper, rubber shift boot, and the gold 5 spoke wheels. All 98's were coupes. The 99's had silver 5 spokes, the "new" interior (ie: a leather shift boot ), the first large fog lamps, and all were coupes. The 00 and 01 had the silver 6 spoke wheels and 00 introduced the sedan body style. 8755 coupes were made through all four years of production, with 7352 sedans made over their two year production run. I probably missed a few things, but the truth is out there as they say . Check out a few websites for more info- cars101.com, edmunds.com, and my site and Peaty's site as Ed mentioned .

Leather was a port installed option. I almost got leather on my old RS but ended up getting the cloth.

I got a Ridge Blue , 2 door , 5 speed, 2000 2.5 RS. Has 67 thousand on it.

211 miles of drivng to show up and have someone test driving it.
After missing out on 3 different '01 models (same types - DAMN u Mr LA who bought the ATL one and whom ever in Texas who got the one for 10,900 at 42,000 miles! ... urghghg - bygones) I
didnt really hesitate to purchase even though I have a bit of worry on why it has brand new Toyos with the steering wheel cocked to the right with no real noticable missalignment while driving. If something is wrong I will be sure my mechanic and body man finds it this coming week casue it has a 3000 mile / 30 day unlimited guarentee (bought from Subaru dealer). Any problems and I'll let my wife loose with her steel toes.

Do they make RS floor mats? They had WRX mats in. Not a fan.
Im not into drag racing so turbos arent for me. Cruising at 110 is me though so I will be looking to mods going top end. Looking at the 6 speed tranny along with one of the axis motors. Will be talking to them soon about custom job for my driving style. As of now I think I will be driving about 5-10 mph SLOWER than in my Accord. Gear ratios I suppose.

I know you already got your car, but the differences are CF trim and Black Diamond Pearl was not an optional color in 2000 but it was in 2001. Also, the CD player is standard in 2000, I have my window sticker to prove it, the upgraded stereo is just the factory subwoofer under the driver seat and better speakers.

i have my window sticker also and it says cassette stereo with 4 speaker is standard not the cd player

on the right side of the window sticker it says
cd player - 350.00
tweeter kit - 100.00
subwoofer/amp - 260.00

i bought this car on 12/28/99 and maybe it wasnt standard on them yet...it was assembled in japan in 9/99

The CD player may have been standard (ie: already installed and/or a port installed option) on the car you got JewPac42, but it did not become a factory standard until the 2001 RS .

I have the OEM sub too. It's not bad. I'm not one to blast bass heavy music anyways, though.

Do you know how to work it? I can't find any buttons on mine, I guess I'm not looking right or something.

I think the only way to work it is to adjust the bass on the actual stereo. More bass, more subwoofer. Too bad though, cause my driver's side front speaker has a lot of vibration coming out of it when i turn it up. Not fun.

I will try that when I leave today and see if that works, from what I can see all the connectors are plugged into the sub correctly. Its that big white cluster that holds all the wires and it's plugged into the side of the sub.
