Default Wanted: 2000-2001 4 Door 2.5RS

Alright guys,
I am looking for a 4 Door 2.5RS in good shape. Auto preferred, but would not turn down a manual. The stocker the better too, reliability is what I am aiming for. If a body panel or 2 needs to be replaced, I have no problem doing that, and I paint in my garage.

We are expecting our first kid in June, and I don't trust my 1991 Galant VR4 with 230k on the clock enough to carry a kid around in the back seat. And apparently tow trucks aren't made for car seats.

I am very impressed with the 96 OBS we picked up for my wife a couple of months ago. But as always a bit more power is always better.

If you guys see something at a lot anywhere in mass/ri/nh PLEASE let me know. I will be watch craigslist (I missed out on a great one this weekend. It needed some work, but I can handle pretty much anything)

Thank you for any help you can give me.

I can attest that the 4dr is really convenient with a car seat. I'm thinking of keeping mine 2 more years till the kids in school and I won't have to pay for preschool...

How much money would ya throw at me to sell? ;-)
I've got leather seats and the trunk light as the only mods I've done.

I think my old one is still for sale at Wakefield Subaru.

White 4 door 2.5RS Auto.

They had it listed originally for about $10.5K but they are down to about 8K now.

The good :
I owned it from new (lease then buy, don't ask).
It had all the servicing done on time.
Always kept stock.
Had the rotors and pads replaced about 15K ago, 3rd time since I got it.
Always been reliable.
Most of the miles are highway.
Never raced, autoX etc. Some fast driving but not as bad as most people.

The bad :
Accidents, 1 light rear ending from a woman who was paked behind me at a light and took her foot off the brake to get something in the car. 1 scrape down the passangers side, pretty light. 1 replaced passangers door from where an idion pulled out of a driveway into the side of me while I was stopped in traffic.
Miles ~90K, needs the 90 K service which is expensive.
The fuel tank does not fill up right, the pollutions control/gas system is messed up and it cut's out the pump every 10 seconds so it takes 10 minutes to fill the car.
A bit of surface rust on the passangers side door sills, unless they have painted over it already.
