    hmmm.. dont know. I wonder how much body work will cost? not sure if i would do this one. i bought my 03 bugeye last january for 9,500, only had 68,000 miles on it and was in perfect shape... two sets of wheels, and a badass stereo system.... so if it were me, i'd pass on this one and keep looking around. but its up to you.

    I payed just a bit more than that for my 2003 with 70k, all stock, all maintenance records, and no accidents. With damage, high mileage, and judging from the pictures, probably not up on maintenance, etc, you should immediately walk away.

    I see from the license plate, you're in Washington. Care to share what area? I'm in Portland, and I know how hard it is to find a nice clean WRX around here. Keep looking, though! The perfect one will find you.

    Huh, that's still a lot to ask for a high mileage WRX, even a clean one, around the NW. The Stage II clutch is odd, and the fact he doesn't want many questions is odd as well. I feel like if you're trying to sell a car, you ought to know a bit about it. I guess knowing nothing about cars has worked for most car salesmen for decades, though.

    It did take me more than 6 months of scouring every possible classified (newspaper, autotrader, CL, you name it). I eventually found mine on AutoTrader. How far are you willing to drive? I could keep an eye out around here here for ya.

    In my search I had to face the facts that you cannot get a decent WRX for less than 10k. It just isn't gonna happen unless someone is desperate and needs to sell quickly.

    here's one thats a bit lower on the miles than the ones you showed us, and also still pretty good price tag. and by looking at the pics, seems to be pretty unmolested. Just depends if you're willing to do some traveling.

    02 Subaru Impreza WRX 5 Speed AWD Turbo

    just gotta keep your eye open and look around, dont rush into something to quickly. might end up regretting it in the long run.

    It says it is blaze yellow but it looks gray?? Blaze yellow was the rarest of all WRX colors (too bad it looks just like a post it though).

    I paid 9k for mine, but I'll admit, it took a while to find a good one at that price.
