O-Pin-Yuns on Ď07 WRX

Weíve had our Saabaru since 2007. It was my wifeís at first and when she got a GTI, I took over the Saab. I tolerated the AT and stock performance for as long as I could before having it tuned Stage 2, which made a world of difference.  Itís dependable, utilitarian, easy for everyone to drive and not so delicate that we worry about it too much.

Now our son is approaching driving age, so he may get to take it over next year, although Iím afraid that may send it to itís grand farewell.

Iím starting to look around see what else is available and would be comparable.  I definitely want another hot hatch (I know ďanotherĒ maybe overly generous to an Ď05 EAT) and will likely have whatever it is tuned.  Iíve seen a few cleanish Subarus, but the sellers seem overly optimistic in what they are asking for them. The one below is no exception:

Looks cleaned up pretty well, but no pics of the undercarriage and since itís in Ohio, I suspect thereís likely some rusty stuff to deal with.  I think 9.5k might be about right for this one, but hoping to get some opinions from the forum, either on this or what else might be a good option.

Thanks in advance!
Rich

Why not find a manual 9-2x? Any used WRX/STI is going to have unreasonably high resale and demand.

Re: O-Pin-Yuns on Ď07 WRX

I started there, but they are a little harder to find, or at least stiffly priced higher than I want to pay for them.

This one looks pretty good.  Timing belt has been done and looks clean, but none of the other typical stuff that starts to go at 100k and none of the recalls have been done.

Re: O-Pin-Yuns on Ď07 WRX

You will have to dump at least $700 into the WRX right away since there's no record of the timing belt being done (probably why it was traded in at that mileage).

The 9-2x is waaaaay overpriced. You can buy two for that price lol

Re: O-Pin-Yuns on Ď07 WRX

I may be putting mine up for sale soon and it would be perfect for what youíre looking for. Itís a 2005 Aero manual, and itís a salvage title rebuilt car so Iím forced to sell it for less and that would help you not care too much about your son driving it in to the ground. Iíve taken good care of her and tastefully modded it over the years - if youíre interested I can send over the good and the bad of the car for you to consider it w/ all of the info available. Just shoot me a PM

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, I agree both of those are way high and need work.

It's so. Just interested in moving on to something else.

My thought is to list it at $4k. She has the salvage title and some outstanding issues but I'm hoping someone can look past the title and see the car for what it is.  driving
