Default The time has come... STI!

Alright, I figured this would be a good place to check other than those crafty dealers. I am looking for an STI in the next few months(could even wait till summer beating on the old Integra, but I'm ready to step it up). YES, I have the cash on hand and am a serious buyer. I'm looking for an 04/05 with <40k and for ~$23,000. I would REALLY prefer unmodded if possible. If anyone is considering selling or knows someone who is, let me know please! I'm im Southeastern MA. Thank you

Doug

Make sure if you are considering buying at or around those miles you check to see if the car has already had the brakes done and or the tires replaced as that could be an easy $1000+ additional dollars you didnt factor into the original purchase.

That's getting up there in miles. I know it's going to be hard to find an unmolested STI, even though those are very minor mods, I'd still prefer one without engine management for sure. DP would be ok. And especially buying a car I know has been tracked.

I know, I know, I'm living in a dream world where I can get an STI that wasn't "driven".

Anyways, got pics? How often was it tracked? PM me or email nickhater1@yahoo.com

And great point about brakes/tires/scheduled maintenance. That's def something to look at, thank you

No prob... Im nearing those things so its fresh in my mind.

Just keep them in mind even if the car needs brakes or tires get a realistic price for the repairs/replacements and subtract that from the buying price if they are not interested in doing it. If they wont do that... find a better deal

You might be better off to buy it with bald stock tires so you can get a little discount and put that towards winter tires

I am considering selling mine. It is a 2005 CGM with 22K on the clock. I purchased new from Patriot Subaru and have all maintenance done there so complete history is available.

No performance upgrades. Only upgrades added to protect car such as rally armour mud flaps and primitive plates front and rear. Also has three gauge dash cluster--oil pressure, boost, oil temp, and I have the original clock and OEM undertray. Two sets of wheels--winter/summer. Summer wheels like new--tires shot as they are the original RE070s. Winter wheels have curbage--but winter tires are in great shape. Both sets OEM BBS.

PM me and we can chat. I miss the practicality and cheaper insurance of my wagon.....

Yea, I've already looked into the winter tire setup. I think rather than mounting/balancing every time I'll get some Blizzak's and put them on the $90 ASAs from Tire Rack.

I would def have to knock that off the price, if something needed to be fixed. That's like paying for it twice

And I see RyanC is one of the veteran trackmen around here(im n00btastic). I'm not interested in a car I know has been driven that hard. Sorry

Thats makes great sense seeing most tires places cant seem to mount a tire without damaging a rim...

I am still scared to get mine changed over...

Last time I had a run in with tire morons was when they damaged my brothers 18"x10" (iirc) Magnezium saleen wheels... The guy hit the rim so hard it left hammer marks in it.

The guy says "They go on a mustang" with an attitude like that makes it ok he damaged them.

They paid to fix them... but it still wasnt worth it.

Yea, if you think about it, with the tire package you pay for the tires and then 90 per rim. If you don't get the package, thats still the price of tires, and then changing them twice a year. Now that might not cost 90, but it's a helluva lot better to change yourself. BBSs are crazy $. I'd rather hate myself for a mistake than some drone that F'd up my wheels.

yup I totally agree. If you can afford 2 sets its clearly the way to go.

I'd love to get a set of BBS's for the winter also

Yea, if you do it yourself you shouldn't have any problems. Although I don't know how people who do it for a living end up having problems. I'd just go for the winter package from Tire Rack with the ASAs so you're not going to get them mounted/balanced twice a year, just a wheel change.

That's tough with the STI. I'd get the ASA's just because they're winter rims and I don't care if they're not hella mad tyte siq JDM yo! Unless you could get a good deal on some used Rota's, that would be a good alternative.

I have run Enkei RPF-1's (yummm, gold) with Hakka 2's on my STi for the last 3 winters. They have proven strong enough for the potholes I haven't been able to safely dodge. I didn't want to be mounting and dismounting tires from the same rims twice a year and I wanted to protect my BBS's. This solution has worked for me.

Still looking for an unmodified(or lightly at most) 04-05 STI with <40k for ~$23,000. If you or anyone you know is looking to sell their STI in the next few months(no rush, but would buy if I found the right one) let me know please. I have the cash on hand and am a serious buyer. Thanks

I just traded it my 2004 STI Blue/Gold rims to Long Subaru in Webster,MA. Just got done converting back to stock. You may be able to get a good deal on it. Just had it fully checked over at the dealer, and then traded it in on a 2007 Legacy SpecB.
Also, some mods may NOT be a bad thing. Headers and uppipe (XXtuning), downpipe and cat back are fairly normal mods. The Cobb AP Tuner gives a bit more power, without having to worry about high EGT's. However, be careful of 'loud pipes', unless you like meeting policemen. I got away with it for a while (I'm over 55!), so normally it was just a warning for me. Finally found some catbacks that were fairly quiet, but produced some sound. End result of mods I made were plenty of power, and 26 mpg on the last trip. Normally around 22-23 mpg in town. Also with the Cobb AP tuner, you can set Valet mode, economy mode, change from 93 to 91 octane in other areas of the country.

Good luck with your quest.

You wanted to know what they would quote me on the STI you traded in, here it is: about $27,000 "since that's what your Legacy was approximately." With 46,000 miles, that's absurd! Most I see around here are about $24/25 with 30k or less.

Needless to say, still searching. New year, new car. Anyone selling their STI or knows someone who is/will be, let me know!

So youd rather buy an sti with just a downpipe and no EM? are you sure your ready to own an STI?

The tracked part, yes could be bad down the road, but ive seen more cars have things wrong because they werent driven hard....youve gotta open the car up, if you baby it most likely something will go wrong (in my own experience seeing it all the time not only in cars but the snowmobiles and four wheelers i sell) the longest lasting ones are the ones that are ridden hard...

Just my $.02

Granted if the car has downpipe it has probably already been flashed, but not necessarily. It's easier to swap the downpipe back to stock than to have no AP or Ecutek and try to flash back to stock via some magical wizard. Basically, I wouldn't want to spend that much on a car and then have some sort of problem due to the non-stock ECU configuration and be left stranded by Subaru. That's probably not going to happen, and is quite unlikely, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. That's all. And like I said, I'd prefer a totally stock STI to avoid that $hit completely.

Unmolested=less probability of problems

Pizza, you can keep your anus for Hellboy's pleasuring. Go break some bottles behind Wawa's!
