What color was it? Sounds like a friends Silver WRX I did TBE and an accessport tune on... She said it had around 33-36,000 on it when they traded it in for an EcoBoost...

I went and checked it out yesterday with my friend. Got more info on it and it is this.

There was a group of ppl I guess that bought multiple WRXs (4d sedan) and planned on modding them out for racing. For whatever reason they stopped the process on the 08'. They took out the 1st motor that had about 40k miles on it and put in a new motor. When I say new/newer motor I mean a motor that now has only a little less than 40 miles on it. So the body has 40k on it and te motor has not been broken in yet. It has a full tbe on it but I didn't catch what brand. The dealer ordered a new catylitic converter to rid the cars CEL. An aftermarket deck is the only interior addition. VERY clean and VERY nice. I for a brief moment thought about trading my 02' in for it but that was quickly squashed by the fact that I love my car to much and it doesn't fit my budget.

They had one potential buyer on but the guy couldn't get financed. My friend was also very interested but things came up and he won't be able to snag it. On a side note, I've got him hooked on scooby snacks now lol.

Sooo I got the actual story. Salesman went out to her house and picked up the car. The guy bought the car without even looking at it.... Drive it to his house on the way back to seekins, motor started knocking so he shut it off. Checked the oil, added almost 4 quarts until it was ok. Headed back to seekins.... Almost to town and it spit 2 rods.

$5500 later, the '08 wrx now has a brand new engine... And the stock exhaust is back on there... Someone else that works there took the TBE and I believe the accessport as well.

Not a bad price for an '08 with a brand new motor ;-)
