Ok, its official and a sad day. But I hope I can sell the car to someone who truly cares as much, or more about the car then I can at the moment.

Well after much long painful consideration - I have decided I need to sell my car.

Reason: This spring my wife graduates college with her Master's. This summer her loans need to start being paid off. Selling the car would allow us to comfortably live with our mortgage and her student loans.

I am asking $24,000. Yes - $24k. OR, cash money plus a trade. Trade considerations - 05+ STI, 06+ WRX or Forester XT, Saabaru. Or something else thats AWD. In particular a clean STOCK 2.5RS, OBS, or older Forester.
I will consider Automatics.

Right off the bat, I want to deter anyone who wants to offer me 16k - so stop PM'ing me telling Im asking too much and that you'll pay me "$10 G's cash." I know that other RS is listed for 10k with a motor... and that other one with a swapped dash is listed for 19. And that other is...

Those cars are different.

The car would be sold AS-IS minus a small dent in the trunk area which I will have pulled when I have time. There is a scratch on the hood about 1" long from something hitting it on the highway a day after a snow.

I know a lot of people know this car. It has spent most of its life an AndrewTech being perfected. It's a 300hp STI that weighs much less then a current gen (2900ishlbs?). Its a blast to drive. Its a toy, its a Daily Driver, its also a bitch sometimes and I just want it gone- hence the brand new coil overs. Nothing has been skimped on when doing this car, whenever I encountered an issue the car would be towed directly to Andrewtech.

Over a year ago the car was vandalized and repainted, I can provide full pictures of it being worked on. The paint job this car received cost me just shy of $5000 with the new hood. The car was professionally done and nothing under the counter.

The last parts installed on this car were a set of brand new Feal 441 coil overs.

Find below the specs of the car, a link to my journal at RS25, and photos.

Yea it sucks. But when your married have have $130,000 in student loans, not including a mortgage, you have to man up and sell the toys. And the fact that we want to have a kid soon...

If I didn't have SO much money tied up in this car, well over 30k, then Id keep it.

If it comes down to it, I will keep it and part it out.

Come on Miles, you should have waited for me to sell my RSTi so we would not compete :p

Now you are going to take my buyers away.

Damn Charles! Hate seeing an Old Skool RSTI hit the market! :(
I'd ask the same for mine though it's hard not too with all that goes into these cars. I'm sure the right buyer is out there. GLWS.

When the time comes and I have to sell it, I will make sure it sells.
