I've going back and forth over buying a nicely modified used or buying a newer model with less miles but stock. Both will end up about costing the same, I know. But I know mods can get expensive, which I will want to do some day. Here is a list of a car with some upgrades. I talked with the guy who owns it. Seems to be an intelligent person with-eeeck- some common sense. I think the car has been well cared for and not abused. But I'm sure it has been driven, otherwise would you modify one?! Let me know what you all think and possible questions forthe current owner. Thanks in advance.

Prodrive-GC-05F 18x8 British Black (They are part of the Prodrive GC series, which are made by Rays Engineering (makers of Volk) and designed by Prodrive. They come standard with carbon fiber center caps and steel valve stems. For the ultimate in racer look these are the best. Forged aluminum and lightweight at 17lbs.) Rims are in mint condition.
Tires are kumho ecsta mx 235/40/18. They have about 90% of tread remaining. The tires have less than 4500 miles on them.
Ohlin fixed perch strut / 25 clicks for adjustment (The improvement in ride quality vs. the stock '04 STi inverted strut is huge. The ratio of bump to rebound damping feels enormously better then stock. All the front to rear pitch that the stock suspension had over bumps is gone, the handling is not compromised in anyway.)
