Default Wrx swapped 2001 Subaru 2.5rs Laguna Seca Blue 1 of a kind

As the title states I have a 2001 Subaru Impreza 2.5rs for sale. I've owned the car for the past year, and no longer can afford it. I've owned other Subarus and turbo'd vehicles in general. Like any enthusiast should, I have taken good care of the car, and ensured proper maintenance has been performed. The car has 132k miles on the chassis and approximately 85k on the motor right now. It is in good running order and is a blast to drive. Power wise it puts down a decent 275 whp, although that is done on a low boost, overly conservative tune. Having the car tuned should put it more in the range of 300-320 whp. The car itself is a definite attention grabber, so if you're looking for something subtle, look elsewhere. The exhaust is straight pipe, with just a resonated mid-pipe and no muffler. The car is also running an external waste gate, needless to say it makes quite a noise. The Laguna Seca Blue paint job and aftermarket front and rear bumpers are also rather aggressive. The rear bumper is my personal favorite part of the car, it is a Mature GT bumper from Japan. As far as I know it is the only one in the US, and if not the only, then one of very few. The front bumper is a Mature WRC and is also a lovely piece. It could however use some love as it is cracked. To round out the look it has a replica version 5/6 rear spoiler, jdm tail lights, and I have retrofitted the headlights with HID projectors. The car, like any, is not without flaw. The front bumper is cracked as I mentioned, and there are numerous paint chips on the bumper as well from driving it through mountain passes (I snowboard.) The car was daily driven so while it is pretty clean, don't expect a show car. I now use it as a weekend car. Only mechanical flaw is minor, as it will occasionally leak a bit of coolant. Nothing serious. Enough talk though, serious buyers are welcome to ask any questions they'd like. The price is $14,500 obo, my name is Dan. You can reach me either via email at [email protected] or via phone at (425)315-6195. Please text me or email me first, I won't answer a phone call from a number I don't recognize.

I'd like to see more detailed pics of the car in it's current state. Under the hood, under the car, closeups of all the damage.

...and where in Washington is it? I'll be there this coming week.

Would you be able to expand on what you mean by decent price?

This was indeed Rickdaddy's car. I've seen it in person when it was still in Fresno. Nice car. I haven't seen the crack in the bumper up close though.

Er, 14.5k is a good price for the car?

If you're implying it's a little high, this is far from an average WRX swap. One of the better USDM swapped GC's.

Er, its also $1000 more than is sold for a year ago.

Since then it's done hard duty as a ski car and come back with cracked up bumper and a chipped up paint job. Admittedly losing it's 'show car' status which it had when last sold.

Sorry to price-troll but I feel the 'decent price' statement was valid.

In the meantime please show us interior, underhood, and under car pics.

Everyone is entitled to thier own opinion, but not entitled to muck up other peoples sales, I don't know why there is that one person in every for sale thread. Good luck with the sale, beautiful car!

In this case, it's me. Sorry to troll-it-up, I just can't see someone being led to believe that this is a deal at $14.5k when it was offered at a thousand less a year ago. Anyone that doesn't have an issue with this must enjoy someone getting taken advantage of.

If there were improvements made in that time frame, great, maybe they have improved it's value. There is no evidence of that, and quite the opposite is admitted. Broken bumper, chipped up paint, leaking coolant and lord knows what the underside of the car looks like - somehow adds up to $14.5k

You said it, best of luck.
