Ok, so here's an update for the people that care:
Just got back from looking at this guy's 2002 WRX who lives about 10 mins from me. Absolutely fell in love with it... the guy is really cool, he's in his 30's and was the first owner of the car. He bought it back in 2001 right off the showroom floor. Great guy, really knows his stuff, and the car is absolutely immaculate.
So here's the run down on his car.
2002 WRB WRX
5 SPD Trans
FP Green 16G Turbo (500 miles on it)
Upgraded TMIC (ebay I believe)
Eibach ProKit Springs
Cusco rear sway
Cusco front sway (not installed)
Front H-Brace (not installed)
Set of 4 rims in gunmetal (not sure on brand, Rota maybe) w/ tires
STi Gold BBS rims on car currently
Full Audio w/ Pioneer Headunit w/ Nav
Gutted STi Exhaust (catless)
Catless DP (not sure on brand)
COBB AP V2
Stg. 4 Clutch (brand new)
OEM Flywheel (brand new)
Recent service/oil change
JDM Rear Spoiler
Un-painted side skirts
**All of the turbo work, etc., was done at Mach V.
He has some other goodies that he would throw in (Cusco sway, rims, etc.) which would be pretty nice. I know the car has 108k on the clock, but damn, this guy has taken care of his WRX. The paint is flawless and by the way he talked, I could tell that he really cares and has babied his WRX through its entire life thus far. All of the mileage (according to him) was from the highway with about 30-40% coming from city driving around here in NoVa. He also took me for a quick spin down the FFX County Parkway and holy carp...it pulls hard ; and sounds amazing!
So what do you all think? Good deal or not? Considering everything that I've stated above, should I keep this at the top of my list, or should I get over myself now and look for something that has less miles but is more expensive?
EDIT: some pics.
