You obviously are a very young child who has a lot to learn... First off, COBB ACCESS PORT not "cob aces port" will not tell you if you have blown rings. It COULD BE a bad head gasket. Second off, 32k ? are you out of your ****ing mind? You have no clue what you are talking about in any of your posts so either this was your Son's car or you stole it... either way.. you will never sell it with your ignorance.

Even if this Sti is incredibly built, judging by his intelligence, there is going to be a huge mess to clean up engine wise.

to be honest, judging by his mansion of a house next to his sti... I would guess its a stock long block with a ebay catback and ebay fmic.. He posted a receipt on CL that totaled up to a bout 2k worth of parts but ... none of it was specific to a Subaru and looks like he printed it himself ... .. another thing is when I said " i bet you still have your stock VF " he didnt reply to that at all...

To be fair, check out the receipt closer. The cost on it is for the install labor. That doesn't include the cost of the parts. He also does have "turbo kit" on the list. Whatever that may include.

I am just pointing this out. I am still 100% positive this STI is a ****liner

I've sold a few cars on craigslist and honestly it is easier to generate interest when you post fewer details.

For example: I was selling my '93 impreza and put a huge list of maintenance and parts replaced in the ad and generated no interest. A week later I posted up one pic and wrote something like "1993 Subaru Impreza. Runs Great" and got tons of interest. Sold it for my asking price to the first guy who came to see it.

Sometimes if you put a lot of maintenance stuff in your ad, people will think the car is a piece of crap.

This was true when I sold my 1JZ Supra a few years ago. I re-posted the ad a few times, each time with fewer details, and each time I got more interest.

Also, don't be too harsh on people who live in trailers; you don't know their life story. I live in an area where they are drilling for oil, and guess what? You get a trailer house while you can, you overpay for said trailer house, and you be thankful you got it before the oilfield trash did.

Pretty much this.

If gives simpletons less to think/worry about. Anyone who gives a rip will ask for a list and even then, most won't even know what the hell they're reading.

Yep. I noticed this as well.
However, I've noticed the intelligent enthusiast buyers will respond to the well written ad listing important information regarding the car and it's history.

The minimalistic ads however..
they seem to attract the brotastic cavemen that text in syllables and type with their faces.
*selling car for 20K*
gets text messages like: "i hav 5K CASH now fer yer car"

I HATE craigslist, and I've sold a ton of **** through there. It seems to be the largest hive of villany and scum and misdirected mutants on the planet.

As much as I hate craigslist, that's where I found my car and I'm very happy with the purchase.
