Default How much did you pay for your 02-07 WRX?

I am considering purchasing a 1st generation (02-07) WRX with low miles as a project car if one comes up as a great deal on craigslist or a dealership. The more stock the better. I'm curious to hear about how much you spent on yours? Also taking any advice you have to offer. Thanks

That's a huge range man. 6 model years, unknown mileage, unknown condition, varying markets.

You're going to get responses anywhere from $1,000 to $19,000.

I'm looking to hear about the mileage as well. I wouldn't mind a bug, blob, or hawk for my project.

I passed on an 02 with 125k miles in very good condition for $5500. It sold 2 weeks later for $4500. I bought an 07 wrx limited with 80k miles stage 2 with a front mount for $14k. Sold it less than a year later with under 90k on it for $12.5 k. It had an 04 STi 6 speed as well.

I'd be willing to spend up to around $15k but wow, I can't believe these 80k mile 8 year old cars are selling for 50% less than a brand new WRX.. What am I missing here? I'm going to try and find a really smoking deal for me to get it.

An 04 or so with around 40k miles (yeah right, lol) would be an ideal car for me in terms of KBB price and low mileage. Do any of these have 40k miles anymore? I doubt it.

Ha most STI's around me with around 30-40k miles people want upwards of $28,000 and Wrx with that mileage are $15-18,000.

I bought my 04 Wrx wagon with blown center diff bearing for $2400 with 129k on if.

You realize there's a number of websites that have all this stuff in a database, right? You can just go look it up.

www.kbb.com
www.nada.com
www.truecar.com
www.cars.com

Those prices are going to be just as close as anyone's on here. Sure, you might be able to save a few hundred by buying off a fellow enthusiast. You could also end up paying more because "we" believe mods are worth more value on the car (Note: I say "we" meaning some people, not most of us).

First you make a thread about how you cry at night when you're elbow touches your e-brake, and now you're shopping for a car that's going to be a minimum of eight years old?
Christ, that'll work out well.

I got an 05 WRX, 98k miles, 1 owner, all stock but radio
Set me back $11,900 I paid a little too much as now I realize little cosmetic things I should have noticed when I bought it that would have brought the price down.
Oh and I bought it in OK if that makes a difference.

Pretty much this and close the thread. Price is going to based also on supply and demand in your local area. I also would highly recommend getting a local shop that knows Subaru's inside and out to do a full inspection including compression checks, etc.
