    after reading just the first sentence i'm going to go with a pass.

    modded wrx = bad idea.

    stock wrx = great idea.

    also- body kit? 20" wheels? theft recovery? ..... this has my stamp of disapproval.

    Here's my opinion, I would never buy a car from someone with such horrible grammar.

    But in all seriousness, try to find a low mileage, stock WRX in your price range and build it yourself. I believe you will be much happier in the long run.

    Good arguement I'm just trying to save money and buying one already modded is much cheaper and I might be trading my truck so thanks for input nothing is set in stone yet still looking around

    buying an already modded car might cost you MORE money in the long run

    you have no clue if the car has been maintained. if the mods have been done properly. if a proper tune has been done, etc.

    it will be a lot better to start with a stock wrx & put your own modifications on it.

    taking the cheap way out is NOT a good choice. if you cannot afford to do what you want to it- keep it 100% stock until you have enough money saved to do what you'd like.

    Dez has the modifiable words to live by. When buying a used WRX, you want reliability first. If it does have mods, you want to know what it is specifically and when it was done and by who, and especially why they did it. Preferably you want to see things documented well with a modded used car.

    The thing that scares me about it...is that its claiming outright to be a Theft Recovery with no title...

    Walk away from this please.

    I agree with all the others. You just don't know the history of this car. You'd be better off finding something unmodded with a clear title. Pass on this, you'll regret it if u buy it I think.

    Besides, I've never heard of 20's on a WRX.
