    So I just got back from looking at this one

    http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...ag=1&cardist=9

    It was a teenage kid with cross drilled rotors, sti trunk and wing, eibach springs, some kind of up pipe.

    the good
    - 52k miles
    - affordable $12.5k
    - new transmission w/ paper work from local dealership
    - offering to put all stock parts back on
    - offering set of rims for free (in picture)

    the bad
    - vented his bov to the atmosphere
    - aem sri
    - car is cambered, will need new tires
    - looks like it has been in a fender bender
    - teenage kid
    - has up pipe (don't know if that will effect emissions in Colorado)
    - front bumper is not on very tight
    - rear bumper missing some side bolts to mount to rear quart panel
    - wheel wells have holes in them
    - i test drove it and it felt a little sluggish, I've never driven a turbo car before so I wouldn't know how hard it is supposed to pull.

    I'm getting it car faxed by a member on this site but here is the Vin number if someone could do it before he can.

    Vin = JF1GD29683G505906

    That is a great example of a 7k dollar bug eye if I have ever seen one. I wouldnt give anything over 8 for that car...honestly.

    It looks like the car has beat it up pretty good and broke the tranny. Mom and dad paid for the tranny work and told him he needs to sell the car.

    I wouldnt touch that heap with a 10 foot pole.

    If the tranny went due to how he was driving other stuff is more then likely on the way too
