Hello, I just bought a 2005 (?) Subaru WRX Sti.
It has around 26k miles, and here in SoCal dealerships, it doesn't come very often. At the end I just had to swallow the final $24.6k OTD price.
Well, since I really need a car for work and an anime otaku at heart, a fun car like the STi might make me go out more. So under my father's supervision, I bought the car....
A. Without the 4 squares.
B. Without the test drive.
C. Without checking CarFax.
It was until the call to the Credit Union, that they had to check the auto history with DMV, that's when I realize, I really need to start the engine, hear the sound of it and the exaust, plus read some actual mileage.
As a newbie, I wonder if someone could help me know a bit about my car. I have 2 questions,
the 2 holes on the steering wheel dash, was it there initially or something was removed?
Was the engine went through modifications and put back to stock?
And finally, a genuine newbie question. The VIN tag shows the car was manufactured back in 03/04, so technically, wasn't this car a 2004 not 2005?
Thank you for reading, have a great day.
