    So i test drove my 1st STI today....

    WRB 2005 STI in Dublin OH. Met up with the guy and checked it out. I must say they look way better in person. Im very impressed with the car overal. I have no intent of buying it after he told me what has all been done to it lol.

    -Was in 2 accidents
    -Engine replaced
    -Turbo was blown by a test driver and replaced
    -Had a blow off valve
    -Stage 1 clutch


    Other than all that it drove pretty good and i loved every minute of it lol. My search continues.....

    whats wrong with having 'had' a blow off valve and a stage 1 clutch?

    I mean, if all of that stuff was replaced professionally and he has paperwork, wouldn't that bet better than buying some beat on STI that looks pretty?

    Hell..you could probably haggle him down because of all those things and end up with a very nice STI

    ^^ thats not entirely true. Depending on the accidents it was involved in, i wouldnt want any part of it. A car after an accident will NEVER be the same. Its just not possible to pin point evey single item that was damaged, twisted, loose and replace it all. So even thou the clutch is fresh, the turbo is fresh, a new bov/bpv dont mean nothing.

    If those parts were replaced at such an early stage, im sure other parts are probably or were probably abused just didnt fail ... yet!.

    +1 go look for an accident free car.

    Dealerships! Pay more for people who know what they're talking about. If you don't mind me asking how much do you have to spend?

    I saw that you want a black one but you were checking out a WRB STi so I figured it was an OK color also.

    Your best bet is an 04 for the money.

    i would watch out for black ones on lots within the tri-state area of us. like cincy/ky/ whatever other one is counted. my buddy traded his off a while back and it is f'd up. wont run right, burns up plugs, stalls (after you stop at lights but not when you first start it up) plus it was damaged majorly on the drivers side. 04 jbp so you know. think it still has an exhaust on it and coilovers.

    there is 3 evo's and a silver STi down in fairfield on route4/dixie highway. a place called prefered has an silver evo, and the silver STi then performance honda has the other two evo's, black and a silver. black one is modded with wheels already and exhaust. and it has AMS on the front mount and looks slightly bigger.
    both lots are side by side but prefered is a little lot that always has performance oriented cars. he's usually cheaper by a couple if not alot more thousands

    hah yea if you have your heart set on getting one color that is something you cannot easily change. I would definitely hold out for your first choice color. Not so much on whether you want gold or silver BBS's though you can always trade those.
