Hello ClubWRX, nice to see after all this time you're still here.

Sadly, I'm here considering the sale of my 2002 WRX, the very reason I joined the forum to begin with 20 years ago!

Yes, I just said project car. Been going through a lot of stuff since late 2019. A year ago I fired it up to take it for a spin and it threw a CEL and I thought the engine was going to cut out. I immediately pulled the code. Can't recall if it was headers 1 and 3 or 2 and 4, but upon looking into it, it's commonly a coil issue? Was going to eventually have this fixed, but then my local mechanic that I trusted closed shop 6 months ago. So let me be clear, you should not attempt to drive it anywhere without repair!

That said... This 2002 WRX, my WRX has ONLY 48,274 miles on it. Yes, you read that correctly, less than 50,000 (not a typo) miles on it. Single owner only and it's sole driver. Why such low mileage? 99% of that was 2002~2007 at which point I started driving a 2006 WRX STi and my 02 received little to no love. I have kept it all this time because I love how it looks and I'm rather sentimental about it. It's also something of a one of a kind.

The only downside to owning this car is you will be constantly approached by people! lol
I'll still never forget a policeman in Meriden (CT) came up to me once and said "We're confiscating your car for a test drive!" 😂

Good luck with the sale.

I dont want to sound rude, but in my opinion a good cleaning to give it the showroom quality would have been good prior taking pictures. Especially for a « sale ».

Looks like there is puke on the backseat, without going into further details.
