Subaru Stars Looking for an 07-07

hello everyone, I'm currently in the market for an 06-07 WRX STI, preferrably for about 20k or less, and thought I could use some help. I've found a few, and while I would prefer the original blue with gold rims, I will accept other standard looking cars. my question is, if a car has a lot of miles on it, but has a fair price, would you buy it? the subject of the question:

http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invento...sting=42698675

Is there anything in particular I should be concerned about? also, the interior is "off-black" and that is a term I'm not familiar with at all. does that mean it will still have the blue and black interior? because while I'll settle for non-WRB exterior colors, I absolutely love the blue interior and couldn't stand to go without it.

That car looks like ****. The bumper doesn't fit right and has been repainted. The fog covers don't match. The wheels look terrible and the FMIC looks like poorly installed trash. If you want a mint car, you'll need to pay much more than that. Out here in AZ, a couple of MINT (like show room quality) <20K 05-07 STi's have sold in the past year. They brought between 24K and 28K. The one that sold for 28K was a 2007 WRB with gold wheels and was the most perfect example of a 2007 stock STi I've seen. It had like 18k miles or something.

Also, how are we supposed to know what the owner means by off-black. Not to be rude, but that could mean anything. Call/email them and ask. My guess is that it means the listing site had the options "Black, Grey, Beige, off-Black" and the only thing you could select would be off-black for a blue interior.

That one looks like crap. Pro tip, don't buy a modified car.

And STI's for 04-07 have a 2 tone blue/black interior. These can be easily swapped out with any other Impreza. Do your research.
