  1. Source : http://www.carscoops.com/2014/07/2015-subaru-wrx-sti-is-most-technically.html 2015 Subaru WRX STI is "The Most Technically Specialized Car" for Under $40,000 Think of a car that provides more performance and capability in one single fairly-affordable package than the Subaru WRX STI. In Europe, there may be some alternatives, but for US buyers it really is the most technically specialized car for under $40,000, as CNET’s Brian Cooley points out in this review. Its interior is still about a decade behind the competition, but then again this could be thought of as a character-building feature of the car, and not a true negative point – it will feel quite dingy if you’ve just stepped out of a luxury limo, but otherwise you should be able to live with it. Buying and driving one of these is worth it for the experience of having so much control and grip within easy reach, with handling limits that can be gently and progressively approached. Subarueven went ahead and ignored the electric power steering trend and gave the STI a proper hydraulic rack – that alone should make some enthusiasts really happy… By Andrei Nedelea
  2. Hi guys, I was just wondering approx how much would the premium for a 2005 WRX be if the driver is 21 years old and just pass TP? For example the WRX below.. Thanks! http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=392578&DL=2015

  7. These are the first spy shots of the new Subaru WRX which is likely to go on sale later this year as a 2014 model. According to Autoblog and WorldCarFans.com, this is the next generation WRX STI
  8. [extract] The next Subaru WRX and WRX STI are definitely undergoing some changes. Just two months ago, senior representatives of the company from various markets gather in Japan to discuss the model
  9. [extract] The Subaru Impreza WRX has always been known worldwide for its rallying prowess and also for its sonorous Boxer engine. And since it was first released, there are distinct differences between the base Impreza model and the top of the line model which is the WRX STI. But things are about to change this week when the company
  10. Since the introduction of the third-generation Impreza, Subaru has been making incremental improvements to the rally-bred WRX, first with a significant bump in output for the Model Year 2009 and now the adoption of the iconic STI's widebody design for 2011. The wider body designs give the 2011 WRX an aggressive road presence and also allow wider track dimensions. An approximately 1.5-inch increase in front and rear track, firmer rear subframe bushings and wider 17-inch wheels and tires deliver improved grip in the 2011 WRX. Tire size is now 235/45R17 vs. 225/45R17. The 2011 Impreza WRX uses the Continuous AWD version of Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. A viscous coupling locking center differential nominally distributes torque 50:50. Should slippage occur, this system transfers more power to the wheels with the best traction. The Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) stability and traction control system is standard. In front, the 2011 WRX models feature sharpened bumper corners and wider, blacked-out fog lamp nacelles to accentuate the "wide and low" profile. A jutting lip spoiler with three-dimensional detailing emphasizes the cars' sporty intent. The newly designed front grille with black base and blacked-out Subaru wing highlights the headlights' shape to give the entire front end a more powerful appearance, accentuated by larger grille and bumper intake openings. The whole package only increases the curb weight of the WRX by 34 pounds, and coupled with the "265-horsepower" turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four, the 2011 WRX has the goods to back up its looks. The 2011 WRX will make its international debut at the 2010 New York Autoshow.
  11. One of the activities that most motor heads do during the weekends is that they congregate their friendly neighbourhood specialty mechanic shop. There they exchange views and look at each others ride while having the mechanic change their engine oil or brake pads. But some go there just to meet up with friends. Usually the shop that is frequented by them are specialist tuner type shops and not the average workshop. Take for example the workshop in the photo above, it is filled with Subarus as well as a few fast Mitsubishis. The fun thing about specialty shops like these is that there are bound to be rare cars brought in by customers. For example, in the pic above we can see a Subaru Impreza WRX Type RA from the mid 1990s. These type RA models of the early or classic Impreza were a good 30-40kgs lighter than the ordinary WRX of its day and was the first that utilized the roof scoop to ventilate the interior of the car. It was a homologation special for Group N rallying and was not produced in large numbers compared to its usual WRX stablemates. These older Imprezas are slender machines and feel nimble and light on their feet unlike the newer ones, which have crash impact beams, airbags, and every other modern feature that adds weight. 280bhp in one of these is like having 320bhp in a newer model. I caught sight of a burnt out Impreza WRX STI Spec C Type RA. A mouthful, but that rare Impreza had basically caught fire and the whole front end was totaled by it. I am not going to show that photo here as it is a painful sight to see but I do want to share with you the ZR rated Bridgestone tire that had partly burnt, exposing the insides. From the photo below you can see the amount of steel wire required to make sure it can withstand speeds over 240km/h. You could say that there is an equal amount of steel and rubber in a very high performance tire and that is also the reason why old tires are mainly recycled for their steel and only partly for their rubber. Recycled tire rubber do not have much use aside from making rubber mulch that are used for playground flooring. This flooring is somewhat soft so that kids have some impact cushioning when they fall from see-saws or slides. That said, I now know that I am in very safe 'hands' knowing the fact that the ZR rated tires that most of us use look like they are extremely strong based on the photo above.
