    Wanting to get into an STI

    Hi, my name is Ian and for the last three years I've wanted to buy an STI. This year I am finally going to be able to get one, so I'm hoping I can get some help here. Anyway I want to get into a stock STI as cheap as possible since I want to do all the work myself, but have a budget. I'm also relatively new to moding cars, I've taken a few auto shop classes. Anyway if I could get some input from some others on where I can find a car pretty cheap but reliable that would be great.
    Thanks

    Yeah it's a small place, kind of a retirement community but it gets me off base, something those crazy rangers never seem interested in.

    Howdy. I suggest Craigslist for helping you find an Sti for $20k.

    In your opinion do the people on CL have a history of being dependable?

    It all depends on the person. Ultimately its up to the buyer, same as at a dealership. Personally I use craigslist all the time for both buying and selling.

    Get a carfax, do your homework and have the car checked out.
