    FWIW the carbon hood on the car is heavier than the stock one.

    The STi badge on the grill is like putting an "SS" badge on a 6cyl Camaro.

    Personally I would want to know:

    1. How extensive the damage to the front was.
    2. Was it taken to a frame shop?
    3. Was the front of the motor damaged? If so what was repaired? * It says new timing belt and tensioner....why at that mileage? If the front of the engine was hit what about the crank pulley and idlers?
    4. The intercooler looks crooked.
    5. Was it registered out of state to "Wash" the title? Clean or Salvage?
    6. Is the Ac condenser original pre accident? Does it work? How many fins are bent?
    7. Service history, recepits?
    8. Is there a diverter or bellow forcing air through the intercooler?
    9. Why is the tow hook cover black? too lazy to paint it too?

    Personally, for that money with knowing what I do from pics alone I would pass.

    THIS is the kind of scrutiny I have been looking for! This is a possible purchase I am looking into this weekend! could you check this link out and tell me what you think about the mods and your overall opinion. I am also completely new to Subarus so any advice is helpful! 2007 Subaru WRX

    Might want to start your own thread as well but, I wouldn't go near that if you paid me. It is too modified for my liking.

    Hard to tell front night pics, but something doesn't look right with the shade of the front bumper especially where it meets the fender. Grill has been replaced.

    It's got a TMIC, and air box and is stage 2.

    I seriously doubt with those mods he's at 300awhp. Maybe 300hp at the crank, but not at the wheels.

    He's fishin with that price, it's high.

    I think its high as well my 2007 wrx goes for 17k in KBB and its stock with 25k on the odo. I look at modded cars as a downgrade because of the abuse they most likely take.

    Also from the mods and look of the car I'd bet this is some boy racer. Namely the 50/50 bov and the tein springs assuming the are s-tech. No respectable subie owner gets those they make your car worse. Just my .02.
