Hey, you can join Doctornick in the 02 RS department. You are welcome here is what seemed to be the general consensus when Doctornick asked that question. Feel the love!

The low-down torque of the 2.5L will always be welcome! And since the MY02 and pre-MY02 models all share the same driveline, there should still be plenty of info here. Welcome, I say!

Yeah I feel for you guys. Some old school RS guys don't like you cause you got the new body style and WRX owners don't like anyone unless they owned an RS before hand.

Same here i feel that the i-club is turning into a wrx club. We RS owners should have our own place since the wrx populatrity is skyrocketing. But we wont be held in the shadow of the wrx long live the gc8! RS pride fo life.

But the real question is, 30 years from now, what will be worth more, a mint WRX or a mint GC8 bodied RS?

I was worried I was going to be :flame: 'd because I figgured the GC8s don't like us because we look like wrx's and the wrx's don't like us because we are wannbies in the looks department(even though who wants to look like that? ) :/

I was by the dealers the other day just kinda hanging out.Iwas talkin to the salesguys.They said,,they wish they had more 2002 RS's to sell.Evidently Subaru is REALLY pushen the wrx on the dealers.Another thin g they mentioned is the RS is easier fr the young guys to insure.Some ins. co. wont even rate a rex (turbo thing i guess).
Anyway any RS is welcome in my book.Welcome aboard.

The 2002 RS's are rather hard to locate around here as well. But most of the dealers have plenty of WRX's and can't sell because they are not willing to make any decent deals on them.
