The interior includes dark trim borrowed from the top-of-the-line WRX STI, including a black headliner. --> Subaru decided to say goodbye to the current generation of its Impreza WRX pocket racer with a limited run of Special Edition WRX sedans, all with a tangerine orange pearl and black paint. The exterior differences include jet-black, 15-spoke wheels, black front-fender badging, black exterior mirrors and custom black graphics.

A: Two parts to this answer.
1) Service Records. Without complete proof of a car with this many miles on the odometer being serviced strictly in accord with factory recommendations, DON'T BUY IT. You need, at a minimum, a stamped service record showing all oil changes and other required services.
2) Overall Condition. This is a high-powered automobile commonly used for competition. Has it been modified, and if so, were those modifications expertly done? Check the exhaust system's condition. Does the car have a "cold air" inlet? (Cheap exhausts are common and will cause problems; "cold air" inlets indicate less than a real understanding of legitimate tuning.) If anything internal to the engine is claimed, you need records -- receipts, dynomometer records with the proper VIN on them, etc. A car that has been raced extensively will have more wear on it than one that's been used by a little old lady only to go to church on Sunday.
Check, if the records exist, for replacement of the following: clutch, battery, tires, serpentine belt, radiator hoses, fuel pump, water pump, brakes, etc. You need to know if you're going to have to put several hundreds or even thousands of dollars into replacement wear parts after buying the car.
Check the Car Fax! Don't buy if the car has been totaled, issued a "salvage" title, etc. And, when you're right down to negotiating price, pay the couple of hundred dollars for a Pre Purchase Inspection by a certified Subaru mechanic (not your uncle who "knows" cars).
This car has been used -- a lot and possibly quite hard. Know that there are parts, such as the catalytic converter, that could fail tomorrow and that will cost you over $1,000 to replace. Don't take anyone's promises. Promises are worthless when it comes to used cars.
3) (OOppps) This car will be pretty expensive to insure. Know what you're getting into. (answered by designergenes on December 02, 2009)
A: No you don't need to pull the axles to replace the clutch if you are pulling the engine to do it, but as a mechanic I can tell you it's easier to pull the transmission ,in that case yes you need to remove the axles. (answered by wrench.monkey on May 25, 4669)A: Most likely yes. Ask a wrecking yard especially one that deals in these cars. (answered by DEE W on May 25, 3862)
A: Engine and tranny are very strong on those and 81,000 miles is not that much at all on a Subaru but is needs to have been maintained properly so make sure you see proof of all maintenance. S far as what different things can cost you, it will depend on what you can find at the time. Subaru's from about 94 on are like Lego's. very interchangeable. A tranny from 94 to about 00 WRX will bolt right on. Should be fairly easy to find for pretty cheap if yours breaks. Engines are the same way. You may need re tuning but short blocks for 94 to current model WRX's will bolt right in too so that should be easy to find. All in all, I wouldn't be to worried. With low miles, that car should give you years of fun. (answered by I <3 my Suby. on October 22, 2008)
