Hey guys, I have been wanting a wrx for several years now, and I have been saving/investing money for a long time now and I plan to finally get one in the next couple months as my first car. I have been looking around for awhile and have spotted a nice one near my area.

http://detroit.craigslist.org/okl/cto/2791728971.html

I like this one cause it has a lot of modifications I was planning on doing, already done. (rims, turboback, suspension, etc) and the money I was using to spend on those can go to other mods I wasnt sure if I could afford.

What would be a realistic price to pay for this, and what kind off questions should I ask?

Thanks in advance. Can't wait to start using this forum more often.

That's a good decision to get a WRX. I'm in the Troy area as well! You should check the local forums like misubie or xceedspeed for some for sale ads.

He's asking 13500, but I have done some nagotiating already. I just want to see what you guys say a realistic price would be.

Thanks for the quick responses

The car is not legal for road use anywhere in the United States. Your call.

Are you saying that cause of the street legal part or is there something else?
This is not in my opinion the ideal first Impreza. It has been modified and if you are not very familiar with the platform, you will know neither what to look for nor what to discriminate against -- or how to fix either.

I took some time and read through them all and learned some important stuff. Thanks for the reference.


Anyways here is another wrx I was looking at. I emailed the dearler and talked a few things over. This one seems like it hasn't been tampered with, very clean, and it has potential. (I really like the red, as I haven't seen it much on a wrx.) this one just seems much more practical than the first one I posted about.

That one looks like a much better candidate. Mileage is a little high but that just means you should get a pre purchase inspection done and have them do a compression/leakdown test at a Subaru specialist shop preferably. Hard to tell if there are any modifications as there isn't an engine bay picture but nonetheless that is a much better choice
