My 2008 impreza 2.5 i, has 50k on it. its in good condition too. a few mods like sway bars and an exhaust.. but i will be trading it back OEM. So i get the best trade value for it. I also have great credit. So should i trade my car for a 09 legacy 3.0R?

Take all of your mods off as you won't get any more trade in value for them. Especially if they don't know about them and they aren't visible. Your car is worth as much as kbb, nada, etc They could care less about your rear sway or other mods. Too them it's just a better selling point but don't give you more.

im in a similar boat. 2010 obp 2.5i hatch with 26,000 and they offered me 12,900 for it (what i owe) im torn between sticking with the expensive payment (356 a month) or trading it in and buying a 2004-2005 wrx for around 13,500 and knocking 100 bucks off my payment
decisions decisions lol

Got 26k - Bought brand new (first car ever bought new), Owe a few k less than KKB value. Going to pay it off and just keep it, and have new-ish car with low mileage and no payment. No desire for WRX or anything else.

Don't think so, I think That would be too specific and not many people would be on there.

The closest would be year and model


Any of you guys heard of a fumoto valve?

Yes, and I want one! Makes oil changes so quick and easy! They have great reviews and a double locking mechanism to insure it does not fail.

I want one but am still trying to sell the scoob. I'll have ISC coilovers, 5x100 BBS, and a Rally Innovations light bar for sale soon

Want a 3g Legacy OBS sedan but they're so rare! But also looking at 98-01 2.5RS or Impreza OBS to build and swap

They'll be on the car, but they're getting a make over before I sell them. Last owner spray bombed them very poorly but I practically stole them. I had a cash offer of $1000 from a friend haha

I've looked into those, but they worry me with how far they stick down from the oil pan. If you happen to hit it with something, bye bye oil.
