    Yea it has 22k miles on it but I can talk him down to probably 28k-29k (Grandmother knows the guy and has bought all her subarus from him). I can tell the outside is modded by the housing in the headlights, taillights are blacked out, and red pinstrip at the grill, and it seems to be lowered. So what do you think I should do I haven't bought a car with this many miles on it before but its just too sexy to pass up, I was already thinking if im going with a STI I would go with the sedan. (Also has black STI wheels).

    Just let me know what you think
    if its modded at all i would be careful and check it out. if it was modded incorrectly then that could lead to problems. but besides that it looks nice. i would say to drive it and see what you think, i cant make the decision for you and dont wanna steer you wrong. 22k is higher but not terrible. most likely this car or a wrx would work very well and not have many problems. only reason i didnt get an sti is because they sold the one i was looking at. but for 28-29k is a pretty good price considering ive seen 08 sti's at this price

    Well........ I went to test drive 2 STI's today both were 2011 and one was the white one, I was not impressed at all. The lowest the could do on both STI's was 31k. So I just said no thanks, I was wanting a premium for the sunroof and heated seats on a 2013 but do not want to wait another month for one that they don't know will come into the dealership or not. So... I found a 2013 white hatch base that is coming to a dealership not that far away from me. So I'm jumping on it Saturday and putting a downpayment on it. It supposedly coming in on the 15th but they said it could be 2 days later.

    What I need to know is what should I say to them it's only 27k and I want the fog lights added ( really the only reason I wanted a premium ) should I try to talk to them and say the only way I'll pay 27k for a base is if you add the fog lights or would that be too much to ask for?

    Idk all in all the STI did not impress me at all coming from my 2012 wrx stage 2.and one of the STI's was stage 1. And I have a chance for the base what do you think I should do?

    P.s. does anyone know how much a carbon fiber overlay for the roof of a hatch would be?

    About to get another WRX

    If a fake carbon fiber roof wrap is a priority for you, then probably best to stick with the wrx. The STi is more of a performance car.

    $27k for a car that costs no more than $25k is simply ridiculous. The fog lights are $300. They are scamming you for $2k. The least they can do is throw in the fogs.

    Well it does come with basic extras but not much :
    Off Black Center Armrest Extension, STI Short Throw Shifter 5MT, Black Cargo Tray, Auto-Dimming Mirror/Compass

    And I wanted the SPT gauge and the fogs ill try to talk them into the deal.

    And for the carbon fiber overlay seen a lot of people with white hatches do it just think it looks good, was just wondering no need to bash. And like I stated before I didn't find the STI lived up to my expectations as I thought it would so I'm going with the wrx.

    The arm rest extension is $100, Short throw $300, cargo tray is maybe $40,auto dim mirror $140. That is a total of $580. If you look at the invoice pricing, the car is still overpriced by $1700.

    I had the same problem as with you with used STIs. I was looking to possibly trade my WRX in for one, but the lowest I could find was for 32k and they had 30k miles on them. I know the difference spread out over time wouldn't be that bad with financing, but my monthly is already pretty high so I didn't go for it.

    A base WRX shouldn't be that much, that's what I'd expect to pay for a premium. Why do you want the foglights? They hardly work! Haha they do look nice though. If you really want the sunroof and heated seats you should order or keep hunting, I really like having those things in my car. Don't be impatient now for something you'll have to live with for years to come.

    I like the roof wrap look too and might do that mod eventually. I don't think you'd spend more than 100 bucks on the material and it seems like it wouldn't be hard to do it yourself.

    I would go with the new WRX.. Im very picky and dont really trust used performance cars cant really tell what the previous owner did and what MOD's where taken off for the car to be SOLD! I got my new 2013 base WRX DGM for $25,640 OTD.. Im sure they could have done alittle better but up here in the NorthEast these cars are hard to get a hold of and when a dealer gets them in stock there gone with in days! At least by my house anyway! Like i said tho i would go new. Order and wait or do a broader search and drive and pick up ypur NEW baby! JMO.....
