 VA: '05 STi, 88k miles, Stock Mechanically, $15,000 FIRM
Available on
Charlottesville, VA

Hi everyone, I am (somewhat sadly) placing my '05 STi up for sale.
It's low-mileage, has been maintained well, and is completely stock mechanically (not even an Accessport).
Silver with silver BBS wheels.
Track day bro.Why am I selling this car?
I am planning to purchase a 2015 WRX. The STi as a trade-in was valued at $15,500 by the Subaru dealership in town, but I would rather this car go to someone who wants it instead of to auction, and thus am giving it a week or two in private party sale.
I don't mind the $500 hit to see it go to a good home, but that price is firm.
I can easily walk into the dealership and trade in the car and be on my way.
I am located in Charlottesville, VA.
I am the second owner of this car, but I'm good friends with the original owner (fellow co-worker).
This car has been maintained well, but has its share of scratches (previous owner lived in Boston, DC, and Denver).
I purchased this car in May of 2013 with 63k miles on it.
Let me know if you have any questions or are interested in taking a look!
Again, price is $15,000 FIRM.
Here are some more details:All-wheel drive, six-speed manual transmission, 300 hp turbocharged engine
88k miles
Bone stock mechanically. No modifications, no Cobb Accessport, nothing.
Well-maintained with thorough documentation.
Regular oil changes with Rotella T6.
New spark plugs and brake pads at 87k miles
Rear struts replaced (no more clunk!) at 78k miles
Timing belt service, new water pump and radiator, performed at 75k miles (water pump seized but I saw the temperature gauge spike immediately and the car was towed for the service)
Brake fluid and transmission fluid at 70k miles
New tires (Continental ExtremeContact DWS) at 63k miles
A/C service at 63k miles (new belt/pulley)
There is a very small spot of rust around the passenger headlight where an unscrupulous individual attempted to steal the headlights during previous ownership.
The car has recently thrown a check engine light for cylinder #2 misfire.
That's why the spark plugs were replaced.
A compression test showed low compression but not out of operable range, and possibly due to the cold weather.
The car is priced accordingly, KBB shows it in the high $16k range, and I've put it at below the trade-in value and with enough leeway to perform a head gasket fix if that ends up being the case.
Someone with mechanical knowhow and time could come out well ahead I'm guessing.
Aftermarket stereo. I installed a Kenwood DPX500BT double DIN head unit. If you don't know, the stock stereo on the STi is particularly low quality.
This head unit increases the overall volume, has Bluetooth pairing, and other MP3/CD/aux capabilities.
Hella horns and mudflaps, if that's your thing.
They are orange, and the mudflaps (Rally Tech, not Rally Armor) have a school logo (UVA sabres) on them.
Easily removable (all bolt/screw on) if you don't want them.
I installed an official Subaru auto-dimming rearview mirror.
This is the OEM Subaru part and was available as an option.
Can't stand toggle mirrors.
Thank you!
