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?
