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.
See if you can talk him down lower... You could do a motor re-fresh for what, couple grand. Then it's basically a "new" car...
