Default Did anyone previously own this 2008 sti?

Hello,

was wondering if anyone knows who owned this before in mass. i notice some red flags immediately such as a aftermarket fuel reg and missing alternator cover. also the random hose clamp on the intake, the aftermarket lip kit and shift knob. Just wondering if anyone knows the history on this car?

thanks

Which car was probably mistreated more? The completely bones stock one? Or the one made to look like a rice mobile. Rice mobiles are (typically) driven hard and or improperly by underage hoonigans. Nothing wrong with a lip, and maybe you don't do that.

But if I found a car that was properly maintained, cared for, and was lowered on nice coilovers, I'd assume that the engine might be a bit thrashed. Possibly tracked.

Technically it wasn't a lake. It was a sewage treatment reservoir. But, tomato tomato.

yea I guess the extra plastic or fiberglass on the car just pass under my radar I'd be more worried about what's under the hood
