2005 STi
It's WRB-y

Default NE: 2005 WRB STi - 33k miles

Something I thought wouldn't happen for a long time has come, and I'm putting my 2005 WRB STi up for sale. Hard to believe I'm doing it, but here we are.


Asking Price: Well let's get this out of the way now as I'm sure this will be a point of contention - I am looking for $30k or close to that. This price is a starting point but may change based on what parts you want, such as the wheels/tires, and the S203wing/trunklid; I realize I may have a hard time at that price but it will take the right buyer and I'm certainly not going to sell to someone who's not going to appreciate or take care of the car. DO NOT even bother low-balling me, because I will either mock you or ban you to the shadow realm. I'm not interested in trades.


Year, Make and Model: 2005 Subaru WRX STi

Color: WRB

Miles: 33,200, miles on build - 2,539

Title: clean and in-hand

Location: Omaha, NE

VIN: JF1GD70655L503843

Background information: I am the second owner of the car and bought it in May 2012 from Subaru of Gainesville in Florida. There are no accidents and it has a clean title, which I have in-hand. The car had 28k miles on it and was completely stock. During my time of ownership, I have put a lot of time, effort, and resources into it and have garaged it 100% of the time. Being from Florida, there's the perk of it not having any rust at all. Needless to say, this is a nice weather car only and over the almost eight years I've had the car, I've only been caught in the rain a few times; not that that's important to most people, but should show how well I've taken care of the car. I have driven it more over the last season than I have most years, but I assure you, it did get driven and didn't just sit and rot although I wish I would have been able to drive it a bit more.


Anyone who knows me, knows I'm meticulous and do things right. I have always changed fluids, and kept up with regular maintenance outside most of the items that were addressed when I built the motor. The entire journey of the car is detailed in my build thread, but in case you haven't seen it or don't want to visit it, I'll try to be brief here. Over the time I've had it, I've added and taken from the car in the form of parts and whatnot, but I embarked on the motor build in summer of 2015 and completed it in late fall of 2017. It took two years unfortunately for various reasons, but everything was done right and I didn't cut corners at all with this car. You can see the mod list below, but I always bought legit parts, no reps or fakes since I like genuine stuff. It's never been smoked in or even hard-launched. Interior is mostly stock and there are no rips/tears in anything. The airbag recall was performed by a local well-known Subaru dealer.


The shortblock is built and closed-decked by IAG with new, forged parts. Everything put into the motor was new except for the case halves, crank, head castings, and valvetrain because they were in perfect usable shape and the 04/05 blocks are known for being stout and strong from a metallurgical perspective. The heads were worked on by a local longtime machine shop and also IAG. After getting the shortblock back, everything else was done and installed by me, so I know it was done right and done meticulously. I was never trying to shoot for crazy power, but instead more for safe power and drivability. That being said though my plan(and still is if I decide to keep it) was to eventually add a larger stock location turbo and some more supporting parts, so it is built for 600whp and needs very little more to do that. It is still on 93 at the moment and has been exclusively tuned by my friend jazTuning, who is well known on here and other forums. The car made 300whp/[email protected] on a Mustang dyno back in August 2018. Even though I had no issues with heat soak, it was a rather hot day with less than ideal shop airflow, so we think the car is closer to 320-330whp on the street. Pretty healthy numbers for 93 and a VF39 IMHO.


I have a stack of documents and a logbook in which I've recorded a lot about the car, even when installing parts. I have Blackstone oil analyses from every oil change. I have boxes for a lot of the big parts on the car, and I have several stock parts I removed as well. The car will come with a lot of stuff, but it depends on what you want. This can all be talked about in dealings if you are serious. Unfortunately I'm not going to allow any test drives until the nice weather, but I think it's going to take a long time to find a buyer anyways. There are no issues with the car and I would rate the paint as 8.5-9/10. There are some small blemishes, but for a car this age and it having a paint job from Subaru, it is quite good. I get compliments on the car nearly every time I have it out, especially on how clean it is.


Reason for selling:I'm in no rush to sell, so I am fine with waiting for the right buyer. I'm happy with the car as it is, however I've decided to sell because the car doesn't make me happy anymore for personal reasons and it now has memories that I'd rather move on from. I'm also looking to get the process started on finding an R34 GTR ASAP and storing it til I can bring it over and before prices get more out of control as we close in on the first legal imports hitting the US in the next few years. This will go towards that goal. I get the car to a state I'm happy with and I decide to sell, how ironic.

Bump. It should be noted that almost all the major parts such as suspension, engine, and exhaust all have the same mileage on them as once I started the build, it took two years 'til I finished, all while accumulating the parts, during which time the car didn't move, so the car rolled with a bunch of parts at the same time. That mileage is 2,539 as stated above.

33k total miles on the chassis? Wow, that's really low for a 15 year old car.

Pics updated.

Asking price is literally the first thing I address up there in the ad, unless you're talking about the thread title.

Yes it is. I specifically was looking for a low mileage car back then. I'd have liked to drive it more often but a lot of things happened and got in the way. You certainly don't find them like this and it's only getting harder and harder to do so. This is definitely one of the nicest GDs for sale right now in NA.

Not interested in doing any sort of parting out actually. I'm going to let the buyer determine what is taken first.

Thanks. Also had a professional ceramic coat with a 3 year warranty applied in November because I was too lazy to do it myself.

As I said before, not really going to consider parting out til I find a serious buyer and determine what they want to do.
