Hi everyone!

I'm thinking about picking up a 2012 WRX hatch this week but am hesitant. The car has 40,000 miles on it and is first owner but there are some mods:

Protuned by at TurboXS back in 2015 and is making 320whp.

Mod list:
-TurboXS front mount intercooler
-Invidia 3in catless downpipe
-Invidia Q300 burnt tip catback exhaust
-Grimmspeed electronic boost controller
-Hks type 0 turbo timer
-Defi red racer boost gauge 52mm
-Defi red racer oil pressure gauge 52mm
-Smy dual 52mm gauge cluster
-Sti center console
-Arc burnt titanium shift knob
-Evo X recaro seat (driver seat)
-OEM sti front lip
-Real JDM sti rear diffuser
-2011 sti headlights with the black housing and OEM HIDs
-07 sti brembo on the front (fully rebuilt and powdercoated teal)

The seller is also including stock 2005 STI BBS wheels with winter tires on them. Please let me know what you all think.

Thanks!

The car is illegal on any public road anywhere in the USA.

Even if you are not in the USA, it is unlikely the car is legal in the developed world.

In any case I keep my cars unmodified.

Depends on how cheap the car is.

The Hks type 0 turbo timer screams "I have no clue what I'm doing and probably modify for attention."

Hang on I didn't see that.

I hadn't heard the name "HKS" in ages and I had completely forgotten about turbo timers. I am amazed they were still being made as late as 2012.

Gave me a chuckle.

Gotta let that turbo cool down after those sweet pulls to the vape shop.

Me as well. Even still, I'm sure sales have been bolstered by Fast and the Furious and a healthy dosage of ignorance.
