am i selling my car???

so i liked DGM when i got it but the wrx's look so damn good in white and DGM sucks to clean. i was planning on wrapping my car in white but wrap jobs are 3k when done right! the idea was a carbon hood, carbon vinyl roof, carbon trunk and maybe carbon wrapping the STI spoilers flat plane, and my matte black 18" wheels.

well instead of wrapping the car i think im getting a 2011 wrx. heres the thing, my car has 33,000 miles, lots of rock chips and dents and scratches. nothing to bad but i dont feel like spending 1-2k on getting them all fixed. when i bought my car i had 5k negative equity role over because i normally get a new car every year. well since ive had this car for 2 and the WRX holds its value so well the dealer will give me what i owe. so basically in 2 years all that negative is GONE!!

because i had 5k negative my interest was 6.1%. without the negative my interest can be as low as 1.9%. all in all i can keep all my parts and put the car back to stock, save $111 a month on the payment, get the color i want, dont have to worry about fixing paint and have a brand new car.

anyone see a downside besides an ass load of labor i have to do basically in 1 day because i need some parts off the new car and the dealer would need my car ASAP cause they bought it off me. i know i can sell my fog lights, CBE, STI wing, and possibly my Koni's and RCE yellow which i hope i dont have too!!

might take you up on that. its gonna be a minute. dealer said no 11's and 12 orders wont be taken for a few months. not a bad thing, just more money coming off what i owe.

theres 1 2011 coming in but it has small wing, blue floor lights, and all season mats which i already have. i wanted homelink with compass, fogs and door protectors. just not sure i want to spend $600 on parts i dont want when i want $600 for others. plus its another dealer thats getting the car so not even sure my guy can steal it.

well i lost that car and then they were all sold out every where till the 2012's. sunday night i checked and all dealers have like 2-3 wrx's and sti's coming in from japan. not sure where they came from all of a sudden but i got one!!

my dealer has a hatch coming in and there trading with a michigan dealer for a white 4dr with short shifter, compass and auto dim mirror, arm rest extension, all season mats and wheels locks. everything i dont want again but at least its wingless and this stuff doesnt cost much. just wish i got the home link.

anyone know if the short shifter has upgraded bushings? i have a kartboy rear bushing and perrin front bushings on my car now. if the 11's are crappy stock ill swap. but if there group-n or something ill sell what i have or sell the G-N's.

also im in need of parts. any 09 or 10 here that has a 3-port and not using the factory restrictor pills since you remove them anywho. also i cant find my wastegate actuator, anyone go EWG and use the GS bracket and there actuator for a VF52 is just sitting collecting dust?

PS new cars 26900 that i got for 25400 and there giving me 20500 for mine. i think thats good, plus you only get taxed after the trade in so its tax on 4900 and not 25400. thats another 1333 saving right there so i could say there giving me 21833 for my trade. not bad since 2 years ago i paid 23500 for it!

I have my actuator, factory 2-port and boost pill line....

If nasioc would stop being a bitch I would link you to my FS thread... Think I'm asking $30, $15, and $5 respectively.

Got it, anything else on the list you need let me know, I'd think most parts would just swap straight from the '11 though.

Figured you'd chime in

I'll take the actuator, I have the 2 port, and I only need 1 pill. Not sure if you no but my car had 2. One coming from the actuator and one coming from the compressor. Also not sure which pill I have. I hope there the same size, they could be .1mm different. The one I have has no numbers. If your pill is still in the line I wonder if you no what side it came from?

you wouldnt have TGV's too would you that came off the blown motor?

All I have is the whole 2-piece section that goes from turbo to IWG, so you'll get both pills from the piece I have. I don't have any TGV's, the engine I got was just a short block. I'll shoot you a PM with my paypal info and then just let me know your address and I'll get it all out tomorrow.

HOLY **** my car sucks now. slowly going back to stock. EL header+ catless DP+ no resonator in stock mid pipe+ stock mufflers is by far the worst sounding car i have ever heard in my life! and yes im talking about all cars with no mufflers that rust and fall off in the winter. it is the raspest most annoying embarrassing sound ever!

also no short shifter or any shifting bushings! HOLY HELL what a difference!
