For a 2001 2.5rs, for head lights and other parts, do i buy the 2000 or below parts? Cause when ever they show 2001+ parts, they always show the wrx.

The 2000 and 2001 are identical (as far as I know) in just about every respect, so yes.

However, there are bound to be a few differences (both minor and major) so do your homework if in doubt. :D

mmmm...

It looks like there are more mods for the my00 instead of the my01? Is it me, or does the my00 and my01 use the same parts? They look identical but what do i know?

Depends where you are. In the US, the 00 and 01 are identical except for the fake carbon fiber trim in the 01. But in Australia, for example, the new-age WRX was introduced there as a MY01. So if you're buying stuff for your car from Australia, buy stuff for the 2000. It should work perfectly, as long as your 2001 is the old body style.

The new age Impreza introduced in the USA in 2002 is a 2001 model everywhere else in the world. So when you consider parts it's possible that a 2001 part maybe for the 'old face' or the 'new age' depending on whether the manufacturer took the US market into account.
