I just bought a 2001 2.5 RS that had a salvaged title. A friend fixed the damaged fender hood and front of the car. He got it certified and and registerd. It has 24,000 original miles. I payed 3,500. no frame damage you can not tell it was ever hit. I am going to do a sti swap. How much do you think the car was worth? about that? If I do the sti swap (engine and driveline) will I never get my money back if I sell it down the line with that savaged title? I think it would cut the value atleast in half right? It is completly legal now since he fixed it. What do you guys think?

you're correct it cuts value, if you want to do this and take some sweat off the brow of a potential buyer, get pictures of the accident to show how minor it was, supposing it was a minor thrashing.

Yes, it was a pretty minor accident. Do you have an idea of what the 01 I bought is worth? Great condition. Other then that title.

Salvage title means it's going to be very hard to make a profit on it. Generally speaking, I steer clear of them.
