White is going to be hard to find. Do you just want something newer?

yeah basically. I have 130000 on my wrx and I figured I will never get an offer this good again. The only white ones I found so far it looks like the owners didn't treat them so well...id like to pick up something unmohlested with 50-60k miles. It's hard being picky...

lets say it has papers...idk imo if a motor blows i would rather do the work myself...its just always thrown a red flag up when a car has a rebuilt motor.

It begs the question. Why did it need replaced in the first place?

^That... and how long has it been... I'd be weary of a "fresh" motor with less than 5K on it.
