I would call dibs on the first 1,000 miles, and then mandate that he must buy snow tires.... you said yourself that he gets black ice, and on trip onto that with the stock STi tires will mean no more STi..... but it's your Dad, so I would definately go for that deal. Also who makes the payments while he drives it? If he does, or that comes out of the $5,000 then I would do it, but if you are making payments for a car you don't drive that would stink....

But look at it this way... you save $5,000 on a "used" STi, but you know the guy who used it and can trust him. Good Luck finding a used STi on the lot next summer for $26,000!

Just make sure he puts snows on it.... No way would I let him have it any other way, unless he was in florida.... He might get caught somewhere and have to drive home where waiting isn't an option.... not worht the risk to me.... Also he should have to pay the insurance for it too while he has it....

Good Luck!
