    ok last thread i posted was should i buy it well after alot of thinking and my wife telling to shut up and buy the dam thing i have to decied to buy the wrx. But there was one more thing i wanted to know if i buy this 07 wrx with hks turbo back exhaust, unknown TT, and hks BOV will all this hurt my motor if the vehical wasnt reflashed and if so what do you think might have been damaged. i ask the dealership and they said that it was a lease return with 21000 miles on it. I dont know sounds kinda fishy bascialy i want you guys to give me a reason not to buy this car.

    Later cars did not respond as well to modifications without reflashing as the earliest US model cars did.

    The modifications are reason enough. Find a stock car properly maintained and with all receipts, plus a factory warranty intact.

    Find someone local with a tactrix cable and have them pull the ECU ROM - they should be able to tell you if the map has been modified. While your at it, if you have the chance, have them datalog for you and make sure the map that's on there is safe.

    As SD_GR said, I'd look for something stock (unless you're in dire need of a vehicle, but with a modified vehicle, the chance of something happening increases and warranty may not cover you).

    Just popping in to give a "+1" to the previous two posts.

    Unless you really need the car ASAP, look for a babied one in stock condition. They're out there.
