    what do YOU know?

    Having my 05 STI delivered from Missouri in 4 days. needless to say - I CAN'T FREAKIN WAIT.

    it has 19K miles - spotless car fax report. Dealer says there are no problems. the car has an existing warranty etc etc.

    when the car is delivered what should i look/listen for. aside from the normal checks for noises (clicks/pops). are there any areas that needs special looking at? are there any elec things i should check. transmission checks.

    the car has a factory boost guage. i read alot about boost creep. what should i look for re: that.

    ablah blah blah.

    and welcome to The Club!!!!

    Congrats on getting your very own STi!

    As far as what to look for, just do a normal inspection...make sure all liquids are filled, and looks for any aftermarket parts. There are some clues if a subie has been previously modified (such as, is the stock heat shield still in place?).

    I would recommend browsing around the site a bit to get some more info on your car and what to look for. The Car Purchasing forum is a great start.

    Also, don't forget to post up pics when you get her!
