Description and Mods:
I am the second owner, purchased private sale in 2007 at about 3,000 miles from the original owner. Major data dump available below the photos, but heres the quick summary
car is in excellent condition mechanically, original clutch, original turbo, no major engine work has been needed, never had any issues with oil consumption. Ive had a Cobb AP OTS 91 octane tune on the car for a number of years, religiously fill it with 93 octane, and havent done any other mechanical mods.
sport package, moonroof, cloth seats, 17x7 BBS RK wheels, fog lamps, HID headlights, aluminum pedals, auto-dim mirror with compass.
Any problems:
Cosmetically, bumpers are marked up, and the left fender has a new dent from a car pulling past it into the adjacent alley (grrr). Two rust spots, one on the roof and one on the edge of the rear passenger wheel well. Both are surface rust (from dings), no signs of deep rust. Ive done a cursory inspection for rear strut tower rust, no sign of any at the rear seatback brackets (which are solid, no flex), and inside the wheel wells looks good, no sign of breaks in the weatherproofing. All dings occurred while parked, no accidents while moving.
Im planning on removing the roof rack (WRX rails will remain), the Cobb AP, and reinstalling the stock horn. The aftermarket stereo is included in the sale, but I also have the original. If youre really dying to get the rack or AP, we can negotiate. Serious buyers are welcome to have the car checked out at the mechanics shop of their choice. If you are buying from out of town, I will assist with having it inspected locally (buyer to cover any mechanics costs). I had the timing belt inspected last week, the shop said its in good condition. Given the car has only 73k miles and the belt is due at 105k, replacement will be up to the next owner.
