I am looking to buy a WRX, but I am also going to be getting a house soon. That being said, I will not be able to get a car loan out before my mortgage is all set and I'm moved into my hosue. My buddy is willing to sell his WRX for 15k.
It is an 03 body, new engine, upgraded transmission, clutch, turbo, exhaust, and a number of things inside the car. The original engine had a lot of miles on it, the new one had a few then had to be fixed due to an issue caused by fuel injectors that were too small. He just upgraded the fuel injectors and everything is supposedly working fine. Since being redone it has about 3k miles on it.
Also, before the new engine/transmission/clutch, he got in a small accident that did some damages to rear corner panel. I don't think any structural damages were done though. He has since replaced the panels and other cosmetic parts of the car.
I know the car has probably been driven hard, and I will drive it hard as well I'm sure. I am wondering what the opinion is on this, because I am worried that I will get the car and end up being screwed in a year to replace something. I should mention, I do have a buddy going to take a look at the car with me on Saturday, but wanted an overall consensus.
Thanks for any insight!
