I saw one dealership in the NASIOC vendors forum advertising brand new left over 06's for 29K. I certainly wouldn't buy this car for 27,500, but I'm sure there might be someone who will.
I hope the insurance rates go down a little on those cars in a year or two; I'd really like to have an 05 or 06 STi.
Were not the lower 48s... and NASIOC vendors are not in Alaska as well. The vehicles sold here are much more expensive compared to the 48s pricing. Their is a reason you have to put in a zip code to find out the NADA value for a vehicle. Different prices have different value due to the demand of the car. Especially people here wanting AWD our prices are higher. Yes ebay or watever vendor may have it for cheap and than shipping needs to be paid. Some people go that route but being in Alaska you should know how the system is here. Everything is more expensive here... but we also do make more money than other people in other states. For example their minimum wage in may places is around $6 while ours is $7. You can buy Evo MRs for like 33k instead of this BS 41k markup here. All about supply and demand. Yes I know that turbo is shot on the car but from what it seemed to be said. 27k for a good condition STi is about right. For one that is not good condition than no.
