    According to Kelley Blue Book the suggested Retail Value for a 2005 STi is:

    Condition Excellent
    Value $26,150

    So he won't have much left from his $25K

    Maybe a high mileage one (I priced this as if it were mine with 38,000 miles) from a motivated seller would let him have a few $$$ left.

    OK Private party value is:

    Condition Excellent
    Value $23,110
    Condition Good
    Value $21,855
    Condition Fair
    Value $20,140

    That all depends on how you drive man. I tracked my car a lot with the numbers in my sig up to 26K miles. Now, that is relatively low but before I swapped to STi drivetrain all I had was comments on how smooth the tranny was.

    And I do believe that it is fairly cheaper to buy STi parts for your WRX then it is to by an actual STi. The only thing I have that isn't STi is the heads and I still don't equal the cost of an STi

    So you have an STI exhaust?

    What about all the other aftermarket parts in your car. I see a FMIC in your avatar (if that's your car of course).

    You also have to factor in the cost of installation if the person doesn't have the tools, place, or skills to do it themselves.

    P.S. I agree with you on the tranny.

    Well in reference to aftermarket parts, I was only referring to the cost to make your wrx a stock STi. Of course aftermarket parts are going to add to the cost.

    My friend and I did all of the installation for all the parts so I guess that makes it significantly cheaper too.

    That's my car but it has changed big-time since that picture was taken. Need to update it I guess.

    if i had 25,000 bucks i would definitely get an sti.....but if you just want something fast then i guess 02 wrx it is for like 10 grand and put a few thousand into it and bam you got yourself a very fast car

    Well If I had 25000 i would trade in my wrx and use the money plus the trade in to get a low mileage 07 sti and put some money into mods. At the same time i would probably save some money too. I think it is all about what the persons ultimate goal is.

    Would it really be cheaper to put all of the sti parts on your car? I mean the 7000 dollar tranny and other stuff(rear end) with it, as well as new front breaks and the spoiler. Also you are looking at the different engine components, turbo and intercooler. That is over 10,000 and I know for my wrx it was like 25 something so 10,000 more would be a new sti(not an 08 just a very low mileage 07 ). My estimations could be wrong though, I am just spitballin.
