Description: Up for sale is my 2004 Subaru WRX Sedan. The car has a custom paint job and high mileage with a salvaged title but runs like new. I've owned it for almost two years now and I am looking to sell it for $9,000 FIRM! I am willing to consider a trade for an 05, 06-07 or a 2012 STi, a BRZ, a 2008+ John Cooper Works MINI, a BMW 135i, or a BMW E46 M3 (I will add some cash on top of course). I appreciate all offers, but anything below $9,000 is of no interest to me (Sorry!). I know the price of this car is around $7,500 in excellent condition, but this isn't the regular car quoted by Come by and drive it sometime if you're local and you'll appreciate the price I have set it at. Now let me begin with the car...

The Car's Background

This is a 2004 Subaru WRX, the car has 178,xxx miles on it and is beautiful. Sadly it does have a salvaged title, I am the second owner of this car and the guy I bought it from bought it new in 2004. He drove from Virginia down to Winston-Salem, NC everyday for work which is how he racked up so many miles on it. About three years ago he got into a front end collision while he was stopped at a stop light and a truck hit him. The airbags did not deploy and the front bumper and radiator were the only major parts replaced on the car. Since he worked at a dealership as a paint man he decided to fix the car back up and give it a custom paint job. He paints cars everyday, so he knows his stuff.


The only engine modifications he put onto the car is a K&N cold air intake, a SPT exhaust, a edge custom downpipe, and lightweight pulleys. As far as the outside he put the custom paint job, 17in Enkei wheels on it, Eibach springs (Which are only currently in the front. I have the ones for the rear though), drilled rotars(unknown brand), Subaru OEM body kit parts, and decals showing the brands that are on the car. The only thing modified on the interior is the radio which I had installed. I also wired the car up to be able to hook up some subs in the trunk, but I have no subs in the car. I still have the stock radio but I do not have the stock springs, wheels, or rotors.

The Good

The car is in great shape mechanically and appearance wise. No other car on the rode has a paint job similar to this one. It turns lots of heads and sounds absolutely amazing. I would rate the interior of this car a 9 out of 10, it only shows minor wear and you would never suspect that it has so many miles on it. The engine is in great shape and has just enough power and pull to please most people, it also gets respectable fuel economy.

The Bad

The clutch was replaced at 100,000 miles so it only has 78,000 on it, but it will probably need to be replaced at 200,000 miles. The flywheel will also probably need to be replaced shortly as well. The brakes are good on the car, but if you are coming from something higher performance wise you may be dissatisfied. The car is very low to the ground in the front and does scrape sometimes, but if you're careful you can avoid it. The paint is in excellent condition but there is one very small scratch on the front lip, I do however have all 3 colors in cans of touch up paint. Overall I would rate the car a 8.5 out of 10, it would be an amazing car to drop an STi engine in or mod it up a bit. I have no doubts that the way this car is now will last well beyond 200,000 miles without any problems.

The Price

As far as the price I have decided to stick it FIRM at $9,000FIRM. I realize that there are a few factors that will come into play... The car does have alot of miles on it I know, but it has been kept in a pristine condition and the engine has been regularly serviced every 5,000 miles. I am not worried about this cars engine, I know it will be able to last well over 200,000 miles. The paint job does ad quite a bit of value to this car, it was NOT done by some kid and is very high quality. There's no other car that will ever have this paint job ever. The few engine mods should be enough for anyone to feel faster than a stock 04 WRX. The interior shows hardly any signs of wear. I am free almost anytime during the week after 4:00. If you're local we can work something out so you can have a test drive and see the car, you wont be disappointed.

I am sad to let this car go, It gets so many looks on the road and really does drive well, but I'm looking for more power. If you're interested in this car just private message me here, like I said before. Hopefully this thread is a bit more in depth than my other feeler ad! I'm not in a rush to sell this car, but I am looking to have a newer car before July. Thanks for looking at the car, I'm open to any input as to what you think of the car/paintjob/price.
