    02 wrx with 68,000 for $7800?

    From easy driving. The original set lasted 45K, the next set 35K, the next 40K, and I'm on the third replacement. Rotation and inflation make a huge difference.

    Each time I've replaced a completely shot set of four with a new set of four.

    I did get my money's worth, but I really like money and would prefer to keep it.

    See what the shop says about the car. I've heard good things about Yimi as well.

    But if something isn't right to you, walk away and find something else. The mods on it seem mild enough, and if tuned correctly, makes for a very nice car. 300hp is attainable with a VF34.

    But if you are willing to shell out for all the maintenance, then go for it. You're looking to turn a $7800 car into a $9500 car by the time you're done.

    I'd say let this one go for now and find something more along the lines of completely stock. She sounds like she has had a hard life. Just bounce out from this one, a removed cat is not something I would want to deal with myself.

    If this is something that you think that you are serious about getting into, bring it to a reputable shop and make sure that all the issues you see are the only concerns you will have to have.

    I removed my cats very early on, and I can tell you that my 2005 was superbly solid. The biggest thing is, do your homework and don't be afraid to shell out a little money up front to have the car gone through.
