Default Help! Anyone know this car or person/username?

Hello TXIC!

I'm wondering if anyone can help me out? Any info is greatly appreciated!

I am trying to buy this Ver7 STi but can't get ahold of the seller anymore. We exchanged 2 or 3 emails in the fall and have not heard from him since and he hasn't been on NASIOC for a year. I spoke to one of his friends who talked to him for me in January. His friend told me a few more things about the car and let me know he still wants to sell it to me but now I can't get ahold of him either!

Sellers name was Jay Choi and username here on NASIOC is choi0706. I've been told he used to have a shop and imported a few cars and made a few. I think this is more specific to the Houston area. I've also been told he may work at an Autozone or something similar. I have also been told that Jay sold the car to "Ryan" from Smove performance which is the shop shown in the pictures but closed down in 2009. Now I am trying to get ahold of Ryan.

Please post or PM me if you know any info that may help me get in contact with him!

This is the F/S thread for reference:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1474039

I am searching for a really perfect condition one in Japan so if I got this than I would avoid spending time and money flying out to Japan and shipping, cutting the car, etc. I would like to try one last shot before I buy one in Japan!

Thanks TXIC!

I haven't heard from him in a long while, however I did test drive that car. I choose a swapped gc8 instead (price was too good to pass) The car itself looked good and other than a couple of nicks on the interior panels I don't remember seeing anything else that stood out.

Yeah I can tell from the pics that the interior is all beat up but luckily I bought a mint 03 wrx in Houston last summer and am going to use all of those interior pieces if I can get this!

He said he still had it when I talked with him so I hope he does. I heard it's still in storage.

Haven't been able to get on rs25 yet (nasioc is the only thing NOT blocked at work for some reason).

But I'm bumping this in the mean time since I would like to buy it NOW!

Yes... but if I can get ahold of the person who owns it now I may be able to give them an offer they wouldn't want to refuse!

I knew ryan, smove performance. trust me you are not missing out by not getting this car. all of his parts/cars are from hong kong, not japan. much different regulations over there. ie not as good. just find another elsewhere. you will be better off.

but if you are really set on this car, my buddy still talks to him and I could see whats up.

How would the car be different from Hong Kong than Japan? What kinds of regulations? I'm not aware of a difference.

From what I've been told/read/etc. I think this is actually imported so I would just come pick up the whole thing so I don't have to buy a car over seas, I would just strip that and build it back together from the ground up. I thought the parts were the same on the STi's between Hong Kong or Japan?

Hong Kong (Chinese) cars a lot more restricted on what is legal than they are in Japan. It's kind of like the difference between a California car compared to a Texas car.
