52k on the dash. I cant stand people who leave their STi in a garage and drive 95 civics as DD's, these car's are DD's. Dont buy it if you wont drive it is my opinion, and I will gladly drive 2500-3000+ miles/month and continue to do so.
beater dd's usually have better mpg and takes all the daily wear and tear away from your sti. plus wear-and-tear items are much cheaper on the beater dd's, so it makes sense to have a cheap beater if you ask me. i'd rather waste the sti's brake pad and lifespan by having fun with it, rather than cruise a steady 70mph all day long with it. ONLY IF you drive more than 1k a month. luckily i only drive about 200-300 miles a month. and i also do not have an sti.
plus beater dd's are more comfortable, and won't have an obnoxiously loud exhaust. theres plenty of reasons why a cheap beater is a worthwhile buy for SOME.
