Finally getting back out of the hard economy and thinking of getting back into an STi. After owning Subarus, I couldn't settle with a non-turbo, non-awd car anymore. So that's how I ended up with the VR4. I may just keep it and have it on the side, but cash never hurts these days either.
I bought this car from a lawyer who owned the car for 19 years! He bought it in '92 when the car was 1 yr old and NEVER modified it. The low mileage is because this was his spare car and he drove an M3 (e46) as his daily. The car was definitely well taken care of and has quite a few recent maintenance done such as new timing belt/water pump at purchase. New rear brakes/rotors, tie rods (front), axles (front), control arm (right front), and new radiator (and of course fluids/hoses/thermostat).
The engine is original and showed compression of 150-155 across the board. Transmission does not grind and the car drives very well. It has had the turbo timer installed since the 2nd owner purchased it, which is why the car's original turbo is still in such great shape.
It has a sunroof and although it has a cd player with 6 disc changer in the trunk, I still have the original radio as well. This has ZERO rust on the body or on frame underneath. It's really in a great shape aside from normal scratches here and there from being 20 yrs old.
The roof rack pictured will not come with the car as it is already claimed.
One thing extra that WILL come with the car is an extra set of wheels with studded tires on them. I took this to the mountain to snowboard once this winter and while all the cars were stuck because of ice (snow that melted and refroze overnight) on the roads, I zipped right on by. It was great...never slipped at all.
Because of all the recent maintenance and how well the car has been taken care of, I am not going to entertain anything less than the asking price. If no one offers it, I will just keep it and garage it and use it as the emergency car when my daily is in the shop.
