Default The hunt for a new car (previously spec B at BMW)

Anybody know anything about it?

My dad is looking at it.

The BMW salesman said there was something wrong with it mechanically...

It had the spec B number badge on the center console, however, it does not have the red leather interior. So, is it actually a spec B?

08 i think was the only year you could get a color in the specs too. 06-07 were only black, light black, and lighter black if I remember right. However the 07's got some sweet killer blue swade

^ Incorrect.

06 was the first year for the spec B, and the blue didn't come until 07.

They are all a graphite color.

I'm just concerned because the VIN says its an 06, but all sources say that the 06s only came with the red interior which this does not have. We're going to look at it more closely tomorrow.

I've only seen 06 specB's with red int. Shouldn't is say specB on the back unless it was de-bagged? It should also have the 10 spoke specB wheels. Also, it should have Spec B embroidered floor mats, and a navigation system. Only 500 were made in 06. All the same color in and out.

They want 19k for it? They are selling it as a "2006 Subaru Legacy 4dr Sedan 2.5 GT Limited"

Has the wheels, has the limited plate, has nav, and they didn't badge them until 2007.

Do you know which number of 500 it is?

Does it have the Bilstein Sport Suspension?

correct. 06 Specs had brick red interior and leather door inserts. they were also a silver color and 5MT. the 07's were a DGM with blue/charcoal suede interior and 6MT. Unless they completely redid the entire interior, then it's just badging and not an actual spec B. what color is the car?

Yeah, it's all sounding fishy. I might have to order up a Carfax on it.
