New From Denver

Hey guys,

I figured I'd make a thread in here after signing up and reading for a couple of hours. After looking at numerous Impreza sites, I think I found the best one. I'm looking into buying a WRX within the next month or two (04-07), so I first became interested in what to look for when buying/looking at one. I've wanted one for the past couple of years and now the time has (hopefully) come. I'm looking to land a black one, but I've only seen one for sale around here in the past couple of weeks.

Anywho, cool site. Hopefully I stick around for a long time.

Good luck in finding your car. Probably higher demand around your parts.

Yeah, its been kind of a pain. I've only found 3 in the Denver area, and they're all 06s (two blue, one a silver TR I believe) with 20k-32k on em for just under 19 grand up to about 21 grand. There's a few down in Colorado Springs (50 miles away) and they're generally closer to my preferred price range.

I'm a bit sketchy going through a private seller, but if its a solid and realistic price, do you guys think its worth looking in to and taking it to Subaru for a full inspection? i.e. there's a black 04 for sale, bone stock, 61k, 15,900 OBO?

Test drive one a a dealeship (one that is stock). Then test drive one that is from a private seller so you can compare them. And try and find a reputable mechanic that can gve the car a good once over to see if it has been modded or is in good working condition.

Thanks for the tip.

Quick question: I found two 06 WRX TR's for sale here in Denver (blue and silver), and I can't find out what the heck the TR is/includes.

EDIT: I found via Wikipedia that its Tuner Ready and weighs 52 more lbs than the regular WRX. Yet I can't find any of the differences it includes.

EDIT: Found a thread in the Newbie forum.
