    is it only $13k????
    that's pretty darn cheap for an STi...especially one with all those mods.

    also curious what are "Bridgestone Pirellis?"

    and I don't know who installs a vf24 turbo on an STi and DOESN'T run high boost. isn't that a really big, high-performance turbo?
    so IDK about how slowly it was driven

    even if it has a lot of miles, 13k is WAY too cheap

    13 is like.. bugeye pricing, not sti pricing


    btw stock wheels are 17" not 16"

    My tendancy is to believe that anyone who has installed a boost controller at one point or another cranked it up......dispite what they might say.... low boost or high boost (whatever that means) sounds scary to me.

    yeah the whole car sounds kinda scary

    i personally would never buy a fully modded car like this. especially for 13k. it probably doesnt run or something. either that or the tranny is on its way out or its 2 seconds away from blowing up. who knows

    He did not specify currency. He's in Auckland.

    I'd still avoid a modified car -- this sounds like a Jap. import? Can you find one with no modifications?

    Follow link, search for "forged" on that page:

    Incidentally, a car that's been taken care of would have four matching tyres.

    Well that explains everything.
    The old STi's are pretty darn sweet. I love them. Lucky you live in a place where they have them. none here.
    but ya, I don't know much about them except that they're bad*** IMO.

    do your research

    I think it's pretty much the same for all of them.

    Subaru and some reviews say 4.5 seconds. But I think it's more like 4.8-5.0. But I guess it all the depends on the driver.
