    So it's modified? The car was $24k new 8 years ago. Seems pretty high to me even if the car were completely stock. How many miles are on the odometer?

    I paid $12.7k for my 06 TR in January of 2012. Car was 100% stock with 79k miles.

    $16k for a modified version of my car is too much IMO.

    Kbb says it's worth 10000-12000 but since it's modded I guess it's worth the extra couple grand or no?

    No, modified cars are not worth more simply because they are modified.

    Some people are willing to pay more because of the mods but, I never would.

    I would pay less for a modded car, not more. Just IMO.

    That car has been significantly modified (new turbo is no small job) and you could be getting an incredible car. That is, if the mods were done right, tuned for properly and, the car was very well maintained.

    On the other hand you could just be buying someone else's problems. More often this is the case. People put tons of money into a car and it doesn't turn out how they wanted or something goes wrong. They then sell the car for someone else to deal with.

    That's low mileage?! Hell my 2003 has 15k less miles!

    Mods generally diminish the value of the car. If you want a modified car, buy my bug with 15k less miles at LESS than half the price of that car!

    For the most part mods bring down resale value. When I trade mine in I will return it to stock, then sell parts online. I wouldn't buy a modded car especially high mileage. You have NO IDEA how it was driven/ maintained or raced and otherwise abused. I had an 04 I bought in 2010 with 19,800 miles for $14,500 I sold it 3 years later with 31,500 miles for $9,000 the venture shield coating, and a short throw shifter with bushings. I don't know why dealers think high mileage is worth that much. For a better estimate of cars value check Kelly Blue Book value and Edmunds.com and split the difference. Kelly way over values WRXs while Edmunds under estimates them, at least in my experience.
    You could do better than $16,000 for that kind of shape. Plus with everybody clamoring for the 15s you should be able to finagle a great deal.

    Check out Zax's shagging wagon. That thing is ill, if your in Michigan it's definitely worth it. Just look at his build thread, not to mention you would be buying a car blind from dealer. Zax has one of the nicest bug eyes i have seen. BUY HIS CAR I think it was $8500 or something?

    Just get a fabreeze car clip. Zax car might smell a little like Unicorn!
