i just read your post on buying a sti, and thanks those r all good points you bring up. i just have some questions about the 04 sti, as i said in my profile i co owned a 05' sti in 05'. but it never got over 27k on it. my new market price puts me into a sti with 66k on it. when do things start to go bad on the sti. the sti i m looking at is fully stock and the owner seems kind and not the type to beat on it. i drove it and the turbo still pulls strong and grear box is smooth. but what should i expect the life of the factory turbo to really get to? and other major parts of the car. thanks for all the help. also if i remember the back end does have some sounds to them when going over bumps right? from the stiff suspention.
