Default Buying a GC8 2.5RS local?

'Afternoon --

Well, today I finally sold my Eclipse. I had to swallow $600 to pay off the loan, but that's how it goes. Now I'm trying to find a GC8 RS somewhere in the Sacto area. I live about 20 mins North of Sac in Lincoln, and I'm willing to drive as far as 3 hours away. I was going to buy spacemonkey's MY00 RS, but driving down to Huntington Beach is a helluva drive. I'm not too apt to ask my roommate to drive me down there.

So, anyone know where I can pickup a 5spd 98-01 RS around here? I know Roseville Subaru has a 4EAT MY01, but it's 4EAT

TIA-

-Josh

Ah, well the guys at Autowest Mazda Subaru made me a deal I couldn't refuse, so I am now the proud owner of a super-clean Aspen White MY01 4EAT 2.5RS. I was supprised how responsive the 4EAT is, and further on down the line I could swap in a 6 speed, anyway. But I love the car! It's a blast to drive, I just need to get myself some new tires.

That sucks that they owe that much on a car about 5 years old, but 12,500 is kinda pricey for something with 73k miles. I got my RS for 12k with 45k miles.

They can be a really hard car to find when you want one, that is for sure. I would keep the option of driving somewhere else in the state open, including southern cal. It would be worth it for sure. I would hate to think how much Roseville Subaru wants for that car.

By the way, I saw a Red RS at shingle springs subaru a little while ago, try calling them.

ilmaestro- Read above, I already bought the RS from Autowest Subaru, they cut me a pretty good deal. Now I just need to find myself a six speed to replace this 4EAT...

4 months ago when I was looking for a GC8 RS I found one at Roseville. A 2001 Silver RS with about 30k miles on it but being the moronic bastards that they are, Roseville Subaru wanted 20K for the car. I could have bought a 02 for a few more grand and warrenty so I decided to walk out. Well I struck gold when I founf a college student trying to sell his car to pay for tuition and I got mine about 5 mins down the street from the dealer privatly and got it for 14,800 with 29K miles on it.

The moral of this story is DO NOT GOTO ROSEVILLE AUTOMALL!

...And after we're done, we can stop in on Autowest Mazda Subaru, and belittle the salespeople (?) on their lack of knowledge on the cars they sell.
