Default 05 STI, 6k miles for 13,000? Somethings not right...

??????

http://www.autotrader.com/fyc/vdp.js...e=&cardist=264

Either this is a scam or somebody doesn't know what they are selling. From the pictures it looks like it has a Front Mount Intercooler as well...

The Autotrader information states the following: " 8cyl. automatic, 2wd "

Nope, I have not tried to contact him, I'm not looking to buy. I just stumbled across the link and found it to be interesting.

Most likely is a scam, the details posted make it mad sketchy...

Does that picture look to you like Buffalo in November? I graduated from UB a long time ago, but I don't think global warming has progressed that far...

I've seen some suspect ads on autotrader before. I'm surprised these people are actually paying autotrader fees to scam people... maybe they think it's an investment?
