Hey guys, long time lurker first time poster. I just want to say that I have learned so much information on this forum that it is incredible, I appreciate and love the wrx community. Anyways, I am in the market for a rex and I currently live in Washington state. They tend to sell for a lot higher than any kbb value or site that tells the value of a car, and it is a problem to find the right price usually. I have contacted many private sellers and stomped around the dealers in my area for a couple months now. Which brings me here, I have found one that I am interested in and was wondering the forums' opinion.
Here is the link to the car in question: FS/FT: (For Sale or Trade) CA, 2011 Subaru WRX, 70,000, with nice mods, 20,500obo - NASIOC
It is the same 2011 body style I have been looking for, low miles, clean, 1 owner and the guy would take 18k$ for it which is an awesome deal considering the prices of some of them in the NW area where I live. The downside, is that it has quite a few modifications. I never really wanted to buy a rex with mods but this deal is so sweet that I lean towards it. He said there has never been any issues, or reliability issues whatsoever (you can only take his word for it), and that if I bought it for 18k he would put it completely back to stock besides the bushings.
My question is, should I jump? Everything is what I am looking for besides the mods, he also has the stock rims and everything. Idk like I said I never wanted to get a modded rex, but the year, the price, and the deal in general is very tempting. What are your thoughts? I am thinking about flying down to buy it.
Thanks! Input is appreciated. Also if I do buy it I plan on going to stage 2 instantly with an accessport tune.
