Subaru WRX/STi 1994-2003

WRXs in parts of Australia where 25 years marks the transition from regular registration to ‘Historic’ can now save their owners some money.

Some vendors have however reacted by almost doubling the asking prices for 1994-97 Rexes but demand doesn’t seem strong enough to justify movement of that size. 1998-01 cars remain the most affordable of WRXs and are hard to distinguish from the early ones.

After that came some controversial styling changes which seem to be supporting a strengthening market for 2001-06 cars.

An estimated 10,000 of the 1990s two-door STI were made and, with new import rules being rolled out, availability of Type R versions might improve. The ultra-rare 22B STi is worth $200K and unlikely to ever get cheaper.
