First, let me say if there is a better place to post this let me know.
A little background: I had originally planned on keeping my ultra reliable, ultra gas saver echo until after I graduate university in 2 years... but two of my friends just bought wrx's and now waiting isn't an option.
Ok - I am looking at a 2004 Silver WRX sedan, 5 MT, 131,xxx miles, clean title, 3 inch cat back exhaust, alpine CD player, optima battery, all emblems are shaved off of the exterior. The owner says it has had regular oil changes, iridium plugs and trans fluid change 10k miles ago and that it is mechanically perfect.
The bad things about the car are it has about a 1 square inch of paint chipping on the rear bumper, and little paint chips all along where the front license plate goes. The car also has some ghetto fabulous chrome wheels, I planned on getting aftermarket wheels anyway so this isn't terrible to me.
He is looking for a gas saver to trade. I have an 01 Echo, which I have been offered $3300 for and he wants $3500 on top. So, basically thats $6800 to me without the hassle of selling my car. To me this sounds like a great deal.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
