Default Buying a Subaru?

In the process of trying to buy a 2005 WRB STI. Currently its sitting at about 73K miles. The car is stock besides a touch screen nav/radio, added gauges that haven't been hooked up yet and a front splitter? I think that is what it is called.
Anyways, I was wondering, is there anything I should look out for, for this particular year? a friend of mine owns it and said the guy that owned it before him drove it back and forth to work and it was over 50 miles a day. the only reason he sold it to him is bc he didn't want to see it rack up a ton of miles just from going to work. I rode in it Sunday. He loves it, just seems to have ADHD with cars. gets bored really quick. also, He is asking $18,700

Here is a pic I took Sunday of it...

Sweet. So no problems or anything I should try about!


Did I post in the wrong section? Or am I being treated like a noob? I tried to search. Found something to do with an oil line having a tenancy to fault? Oil catch hose?

I would pay 18k at the dealer. Buying from your buddy I'd pay 15-16 tops. Then again I live in MA where cars get rusty and probably decrease a lot in value yearly.

I hear ya. Car has some dirt spots along some of the edges. Like where maybe didn't get cleaned well, but then again I'm nit picky. KBB'ing it said 19ish. Figured as much 18,500 is decent. Haven't actually started makin deals. As soon as my car gets sold ill see if I can't get him to come down a little more. But then again like Unabomber said a car is only worth what it is worth to that person so I guess it depends on how bad I want it
