But it's your money and time... My prediction is you'll spend ALOT of one while trying to safe alittle of the other so good luck.
That's what I thought someone was going to say. I bought a 04 sti 2 years ago with 131k miles and ran flawless. Sold it stupidly at 155k miles and motor was solid. I paid 12.5k for it.
I'm not scared of the high miles factor like most people. I see subies all the time having motors go bad at less than 100k. Probably because they were mistreated. I have already found several high mileage sti's. Just waiting for the right one.
I don't need the negative feedback. Good advice is appreciated but I know the risk involved already.
Btw, 9k for one with 200k and a bad motor isn't that good of a deal. Maybe 7k.
