    newb here. I am picking up a 2006 STI this week. Can you help!!!?

    ok, so I've been looking for a while now and I finally found a clean STI that I want. It is pretty much stock with an intake and clean title. 75k miles and supposedly well maintained. The guy is asking 21k, I am trading him my 2006 yamaha R6 raven edition in clean never been down condition with a yoshimura exhaust and a few other lighting mods. I'm trading the bike and giving him 14,900 cash. Does this sound fair? Is it a reasonable deal? Who is getting a better deal? My bike is worth 5500 private party and it retails at around 7k.

    That sounds like a pretty killer deal.

    Sounds like a good deal. I sold my 2000 R1 to pay off my wrx, you will be a happy and sad person after this goes through.

    Both are over priced, IMHO.

    i'd take the 06 over the 08.

    my rule of thumb is a car should average no more than 10-15k mi per year. 65 on a 3 year old car is way too much.

    75 on a 5 year old car is right at 15k per year. not bad.

    Yeah why pay $5k more for a car with only 10k less miles?

    Well, I bought a 2008. The 06 had title issues so I picked up the better looking one IMO.. I think I will keep this thing for a while! 20k with Full invidia exhaust, Tein coils, Hks bov and tt and new Falcon tires. Also has a Cusco front USB and a new clutch. The driving difference was huge between the models and it just felt luck I was getting so much more for with the newer model. Plus the wife hates the blue interior : p I actually enjoy it alot! I'll post pics soon
