Default White '11 WRX from Magic Nissan in Everett?

Just thought I would try my luck here...

The white '11 WRX is my old car before I moved on to a '12 STI. When I traded my old car in I forgot to unmarried the ECU with my Cobb Accessport.

If you (or someone you know) recently purchased the car from Magic Nissan in Everett, I would love to come over to unmarry the Accessport so that I can use it on my STI.

Just to make this look more attractive, I will throw it the original WRX leather shift knot that I forgot to bring in when I did the trade

Please PM me your contact info and help me save an useless accessport!

Thanks!

Haha... wouldve done that if the car was still there! It was sold within days! I guess a white WRX limited just won't stay in the lot for too long...

I would see if the dealer will call the buyer on your behalf and explain the situation. Maybe they can get them to come in.

Exactly what I did as well. Hopefully the new owner understands what Accessport is and let me touch his/her car's ECU =]

Depends if the new owner is cool...If they aren't they get a free tune. If they are, you get lucky and have use for your AP...Best of luck!

A free tune untill they change one thing on their car and need a reflash. Then they will have to either buy an accessport to unmarry their car, or down their vehicle for over a week while they ship their ecu to cobb and pay to have it flashed back to stock.

Both partys would benifit in the long run from meeting up if it is a possibility.

Not necessarily. If the guys a dick then he can just run the tune he's got for the time being when he does buy more parts then yeah, he'll need an AP. That means no sweat off his back and he'd flash the car just as he would've anyways, AND maintained a free tune the whole time with the existing mods. Obviously it's messed up but the guy with the car right now benefits more by not unlashing it.

In my opinion he isn't being a dick. He bought the car as is and owes nothing to the previous owner in the way of courtesy. If anything he should be complaining that the dealer screwed him out of his accessport.

Or maybe some old lady bought it and doesn't have a clue and just wanted a fun car to drive.

Have they gotten back to you? Im sure there's a confidentiality thing but if you make your case to a manager maybe it can be done. I would hate to be the owner of the that car. . . .

Not yet... Honestly I don't see y the sales guy having any incentives to help me... It's not like they're a Subaru dealership and they made the commission based on the completed sales already.

damm... that's a tough situation... it kinda sucks for the new owner as well because Subaru can deny the powertrain warranty because the ecu is flashed. Best of luck contacting the new owner.

Was his mouth moving when he said this? Good way to tell when a salesman is just spewing bullcrap.

If you still have the vin, run a vin report. That might be your only option to find it.

I would imagine a full car fax will show ownership changes. Not sure what the dealers use, but theirs show all movement of the car. Including any auction sites it sat on. Maybe google it. You never know.
