Default Found: a bunch of new 2.5 RS parts in the trash

Does the name Sean Hahn ring a bell?

Did you lose a bunch of new parts for your 2.5 RS? Had any stolen?

A buddy of mine found about $2,000 of unused parts in the trash with Sean's name on a box. They're available for recovery now if you can tell me the story of their loss, and what parts are in the bundle. He already called the police and they didn't have any reports of parts theft.

If no one steps up, they'll be on sale here soon.

My buddy found the parts in the trash at his storage lot. He is a mechanic and currently runs a mobile tire sales and installation business, so he recognized the value of the parts. He called the cops, then rescued them when the cops gave him the green light.

He showed them to me, and they are indeed brand new and in the box.

That's pretty crazy, but good on your buddy for trying to track down the rightful owner first.

If the box is a dealer box with the guy's name on it, then they were special order parts. Most of the dealers mark the parts box with the customer's name.

Try calling some local dealers to see if he is a customer, and have them call him to notify.

Thanks to HOV for posting up here and thanks for all the positive feedback for trying to find the rightful owner - Just trying to do the right thing.

I got in touch with the guy who owned the parts, apparently he was cleaning out his storage unit and didn't feel like ebaying any of em. He'd done a 2.5RS - STI conversion and these parts were leftovers. He's a mechanic at Ferrari which jives with the clearly labeled boxes, the fact most parts have all the bolts you need to install them threaded on halfway and everything is in good shape. Can always tell a good mechanic when you see his work...

So, without further ado - here's what I've got. Not trying to make a killing here (esp since I found it in the trash) but I know fair market value for used parts. I'll be taking some pics once I gauge interest. Hopefully this is ok since I am a new member - if not HOV and I agreed that he can be the intermediary.

RH & LH Headlight assembly (in original factory box, indistinguishable from new – but I can tell it ain’t)

Mass air flow sensor

Foglights (small newer ones) (same OEM story, indistinguishable from brand new)

JC sport cold air intake (Brand spank new in the box, blue color)

Airbox and resonator assembly w/K&N filter

Front shocks and springs (Bushings in good shape, overall good shape – box marked 60,000 miles) - Potentially sale pending

Rear shocks and springs (Same story) Potentially sale pending

4 Drive axles in OEM boxes, definitely used but in excellent shape

K&N Hi-flow air filter (new in box) part # RU-3480

JBL 6X9 speakers (New in box) part # GT645 (70 watt output per speaker , 140 watt max) box looks dated but speakers are still in their plastic.

**WRX STI** Shifter linkage (complete) with new bushings - marked 26,000 miles.

**Volvo (of some sort) overbore kit (head gaskets) for what appears to be a 2.2L - marked "No longer produced" 2 sets

One side note - I just bought a '97 Legacy Outback GT (2.5) with a bad diff/clutch packs/viscous coupling (have yet to diagnose it, couldn't say no for $300)- I'm willing to trade parts (assuming their worth is sufficient) for the whole diff/case/clutch packs once I diagnose the problem (just bought it today) and would be willing to trade parts for help from someone who has dealt with this before. I'm flexible here, don't be afraid to ask.

I reserve the right to sell these parts to anyone locally at any time if you have not paid yet, once you have paid it is yours. With that said I will honor any gentlemen's agreement we have made.

I'm happy to answer any question by PM, phone or in person (Sterling VA).

I've been lurking since HOV posted up the original post, and this forum prompted me to buy the Legacy - I've always loved Scooby's and I can't wait to start to work on it. I look forward to searching (first), posting often and generally becoming part of this community.

Morgan

^^^ based on our emails earlier, and what I just read, sounds like these parts are from an 04+ 2.5RS.

That would be the main thing behind swapping the headlights. You can only swap the sti headlights into the 04+ bodies.

I'll have to read up here tonight/tomorrow and see if I can use those struts or not. I may just have to source 01 RS suspension instead =P

Thanks,

-- Dave
