im right now looking at trading in the venerable bug eyes for an STI in the next 3 months. I have an offer for a REALLY great deal on an 04, only with 5k miles but it's black (and I kind of wanted blue w/ gold) I could also go for an 06 and finance a small portion of it. Between the two cars is there a reason to go with one rather than the other? is there a significant difference from 04-06 that would compel you to pay over 30k for the new one instead of mid 20's for the used one (suspection of abuse aside, since I know the 04 is VERY well taken care of and comes with a sound system from alpine) I'm really thinking of snagging the good deal on a black 04, however I had some questions: Headlights are HID? the smaller hubs are significantly weaker? will i even notice it? I will be keeping the car stock, unlike my bug eye.
