Well if it looks good i still might not be able to have it by sunday.... but i dont know for sure.. it all depends on how the loan process goes though and the check being sent out to me. I have express shipping on that but who knows if that means next day or what.

I am sort of hoping the car looks good and i come to a price and the loan gets approved and check in the mail by tomorrow and here by saturday.

At the dealership now. There might be aftermarket exhaust manifolds they were poorly heat wrapped and there is no cat and a chck engine light with the cruise control flashing. The bumper is zip tied up in one corner. Sort of sounds like a clunck in the back maybe suspension change and not put together well. It drives great tho. Looks good too minor flaws but over all not bad body wise.

I am havin them check out my car to get a price range. I am seeing what they would be willing to go down to. I will most likely walk away from this one though too many things that need to be changed and such.

The cruise light flashes when there is a CEL. It may just be a cat code like I have (P0420)

Yeah I bet it is too.

Just things like the alignment sort of off, slight rear clunking, missing carpet in the trunk, bumper clips missing or broken, Full turbo back, what looks like aftermarket exahust manifolds heat wrapped, and questionable wiring to an o2 sensor going to said manifolds. All of which scare me away. I will load the pics i took and you can havea look.

Tey said they would take care of those things but they really arnt coming down on price much. Seems like there is no way i am getting that car under 20K out the door with my trade in. they offered me 16 for my car and i owe like 14,500. If they came down to 20 there is still 400 in taxes plus title licenece doc fees etc. So all in all if i am taking out a 16K loan i dont want to dish out more than 2K out of pocket with my trade in so i need the price to be 18K out the door and that just isnt going to happen.

I got mine ~3 years ago with 32k on it for $24k (with aftermarket warranty). I'm now at just shy of 60k. Guess I got mine at the right time.

Should I sell my car to Drew and buy NA Miata, and GC 2.5RS?

I sent an email to the exotic motor sports guys asking...well here is the actual email lol

Hey Shawn,

My name is Drew and I came in to look at the Black 04 sti on Wednesday. I was wondering if we could possibly work out a deal. I am still interested in the car if the things we talked about got fixed. IE: Trunk carpet, Front bumper clip, clunking noise from the rear shock area, alignment, check into check engine light, and flashing cruise control. I was also wondering if I could get a compression check done on the car to be sure the motor is in good working order.

I know that since the car has no cats the code is most likely coming up because of that and for some odd reason Subaru also has the cruise control light flash too. I have asked around about this and it seems to be what others have gone though too. Would getting a catted down pipe or a stock exhaust system be a possibility? Or be able to adjust the price accordingly to fit the cost of replacing the exhaust system? I am also not thrilled about the aftermarket exhaust manifolds wrapped with heat wrap. Would that be something that could be taken care of as well?

Also I know you quoted me a trade in price of 16,000 but i was thinking that maybe a deal could be had if we came to a middle ground. I was thinking 19,500 for the STI and 16,500 for the SRT-8. Let me know what you think or if we can talk this through.




SOOOO we shall see what they say... if all those things are fixed the car seemed pretty clean and in good working order. Should I have just forgot about this car?

For my cruise light, I talked down the dealership $1,000. Now I don't know where they added it elsewhere, but... I said it would cost $500-600 for an Accessport and $400-500 for a tune. Or we could get a catted downpipe for ~$550 and install would be another ~$300. If need be, you can borrow my OBDII scanner.

This I what I got back from them.

Hello Drew,
 
We could have few things done to vehicle such as getting spare tire, front bumper clip, clunking noise in the trunk, carpeting for the trunk & alignment.
 
Previous owner just brought the Exhaust pipe that we could give it to you.  However, it doesn't have cats.  The cruise control light flashing on the dash its due to the check engine light being on. 
 
Our bottom price is $21,000 & $16,000 on trade.
 
Thank You
Shawn,
