I found a 2005 WRX STi on craigslist, with only 17,000 (yes, seventeen thousand miles). This is a pretty rare find to find a car in such a condition. According to the owner, the car is in excellent condition. Here is a link to the ad:
Obsidian Black Pearl 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi | 17k miles
It only has the following mods, and is stock otherwise.
He is pricing the car at $30,000, I was trying to bring him down in price but he made me another offer. For $30,000 he says he will include a Cobb Accessport, as well as a downpipe. What do you guys think about this car? He states that the car is mostly garaged because he has a few other toys to also play with (including an EVO 9 which he also has posted on craigslist, 76k miles)
Seeing as how he is offering to include the accessport and downpipe, I'm guessing he's modded the car previously, but has taken those 2 off since. He states he didn't use the accessport, and removed the downpipe at a point because it was too loud for his liking.
So, ClubWRX, I will trust you guys to give me good advice here. I've always wanted a WRX STi (2005 or 2007 specifically) and I have found this one. But $30,000 is a steep price, what do you guys think? I am ready to buy the car, and before I purchase it, I will use the guidelines for buying an STi posted here on the forums (seems like a really nice guideline to make sure everything is good) and I will also bring a mechanic possibly, or maybe take it to a local shop to get it checked out before I purchase it.
What do you guys think about price? Condition? overpriced or does this car retain value?
