Good luck with it man- maybe once I have my 09 hatch all done out we can duke it out down in Boise- if I come back to there. Jobs are looking pretty grim in the IT sector, which was never a strong point in Idaho in the first place.

Looks like I'll be doing a second year here in Iraq- least it will allow me to pay off my WRX within a couple months instead of years....

How much are you getting for trade in? I have thought about trading in my 09 rex for an 08 sti but don't think I will get my moneys worth.

How much for the perrin sts?

Best I can do is 19k, but your 09 is holding allot better then my 08. In fact the 09 specs is what killed my value. LOL

Hadn't thought of a price yet, just didn't want to give them to the dealer if there is some interest. I'll try to come up with something.

How about $550 shipped for the SPT exahaust and $100 shipped for the shifter bushing/adapter and knob? I still have the two extra color inserts for the knob so you can change it from red if you want.

Just found out this vehicle has been repaired from an accident. Utah doesn't release accident reports to the public so I can't get any details. I called the dealer on the carfax and found that they purchased it and found undercarriage and suspension damage so they re-auctioned it. They have a full file on it, so I sent their info to the dealer who is selling it. I will either be getting it for less, or not at all.

Sitting at the dealership now waiting to write the check. Did I mention the dealer is 350 miles from my house? I have a 5.5 hr drive ahead of me still. LOL

Spent 3 hrs last night re-installing the factory exhaust, air filter and shift linkage. She is basically stock. I did them a favor and flashed it a mild stage 1. It'll be the fasted 08 rex on the lot. LOL

Got the STi for $26k, got a bumper to bumper 6yr-60k warranty for $900 more. It's a 2008 with 14k on it. BBS but that's about it. No nav or homelink or anything. I'm all set. Still had to cover the deficit from my rex, but I think it's worth. Plus I have everything for stage 2 at home. LOL

I'm gonna be tired tonight. Later guys.
