I wouldn't call it a steal...

But some people are willing to lower their price a bit for a quicker sell. I would ask how long it's been posted though.

He is charging what the market will support. Other similar STi cars are going for that price, so that's what his goes for. Are you going to buy it?

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder man. It may be worth gold to you and silver to others. It seems like a nice car. Fwiw I didn't see any wrb sti for sale in Michigan. I just bought the same car except an 06. Mine came from Wisconsin. Just don't over think it. If it is exactly what you want and your happy with the price tell him you'll be on your way with $19,000 cash. If he goes for it you have your dream car. I know I looked at a lot of Sti's for 5yrs. I settled on a Wrx that I found for a good deal. When I found the one I bought, I said ooh. That's the one. If the car does that for you get it

Ya well he was at 21. I offered 20, to help with gas. I can ask 19 but I doubt he will take it.

I always ask people should I buy it when I know that's a nice car for the same price everyone is asking. It's hard to find a deal because the cars are so desired that they sell so quick. I mean it's hard to have over 20k ready to go ASAP when u find a car.

I love the car, and I know I'll walk out to a smile everyday if I own one. I used to think I wanted a 08 hatch, but not going to lie, the 06-07 sti I think are way sexier now. The blue interior has me just In love

If you already offered him 20 and he accepted I would go get the car. I would re negotiate. Now if you get there and it is t as nice as the photos I E scratches tear in interior etc. then renegotiate otherwise you both agreed to a price call it a deal

I meant to say I would not re negotiate at this point if you agreed on price unless there were flaws that were undisclosed that don't show in the picture and you can't live with them

No dealers would go by kbb. They are always high on pricing.

What's Republic? My beers are 4.75, but they're damn good. The Dark Knight Lager is excellent.

We need to schedule a meet up here at some point. It's closer to you Aron, and on your way home.

Never heard of Rockies. Where is it at?

Drinking 3 of those beers on an empty stomach was a bad idea.. I'm still a little buzzed and I leave for work in 15 minutes, haha. Oh well, it's a Saturday, how productive were they expecting me to be anyways?

This might be a bad question but do Subaru cars come with dexcool in the coolant as well? That guy from Pensilvania said the trans fluid looked good at 62,000 but wasn't flushed.he said at 90,000 I'll have to flush it. Should I do a coolant flush as well because I did on my last car because of dex cool.
