Default OH: Impreza / OBS 5spd for $4500.. Have 2000 VR6 GTI to trade

Hello. My name is Kyle, and here is my story. You can skip this paragraph if you want, I just figured I would tell it anyways... I am new around here, and don't own a Subaru. However, I have been looking for an Impreza for a good while, and stalking NASIOC, learning lots about Subarus. Imprezas are hard to find around here, but I finally found this 2002 Outback Sport located about an hour away. So I went and test drove it Wednesday evening. It looked good and pretty clean, and drove nicely. Last night we went down with money to pay for it and do the paperwork. After a very rigorous inspection by my father, we found that the CEL was throwing codes for catalysts and IACV. I cleared those out with our code reader and they didn't come back, but it still idled funky. I know how to fix an IACV, so I wasn't concerned. Then, we noticed that the front passenger side inner drive boot was torn. Again, a minor concern. The biggest problem came when we noticed that the back driver side of the engine had some oil dripping from it. Having read a lot about Subarus, I assumed this was the known EJ25 head gasket problem. The dealer said "That's what you get buying a used car, there will be problems" and "we can't get it checked out by our service center, it is easily $800 as soon as the car rolls in there". All in all, we decided that for the price, the car wasn't worth it, especially with no warranty or any guarantees from the dealer.

So, that puts me where I am now. I am looking for an Impreza for sale pretty close to central Ohio. I would like to keep it at or under $4500. The car must be a stick shift, and in a sound mechanical condition. I am handy with cars when they need it, but would like to just buy a car with no problems, leaks, rust, etc. My top couple preferences...

WRX (highly unlikely, but still mentionable )
Bugeye OBS
Bugeye 2.5TS
Earlier OBS, if in good condition
2.5RS sedan
Possibly other Subarus... let me know what you've got.

>>If it helps the deal at all, I wouldn't need wheels with the car. I have some 5x100 motegis in the garage ready to be mounted <<

I have a 2000 VW GTI VR6 that I could trade for if that's what you're into, or I could just sell my VW on the side, and pay cash for the Subaru.

The easiest way to reach me will be emailing to kyamcg@gmail.com as it goes to my phone, but I also will check this thread and PMs a couple times a day

I don't have a trade, but PM me how much you'd like to sell that VR6 for.

I'll find some pics I have laying around and some info, but I can't really sell the VR6 until I have a Suby lined up.

Found an 03 2.5RS sedan for sale about two hours away, but sure enough the guy had someone else "very interested" he was holding it for, even though I could have been down there with the money first
So back to this thread...
Bump!

Black friday bump. Driving the GTI and having a toasty warm bum makes me want to keep it.. but my AWD friend sliding around in the rain makes me want a Subaru even more!
