1) Why are you selling? Getting a truck for towing.
2) Where did you buy the car and when? August 2008 with 37k miles on it (yes I've only put 13,000 miles on it in 4 years), from a dealer in WI, it was a trade-in from an older gentleman.

THE GUY SAID HE WOULD BE WILLING TO COME TO CHICAGO AND FLY BACK IF WE CAME TO A GOOD DEAL!!!

HOLY SHIT I AM INTRIGUED! the car looks clean and he is going to take a video and more pics soon too. hmmmm i dunno whan at this "deal" will be but asking 20999 and coming to chicago to sell hmmm

Dylan or Mikey what is strut creak? He says that it has it in the rear sturts which i think i heard on the one i test drove on wednesday.

Any who i will keep you guys updated. if we came to terms and he is willing to come out here and all looks good i am wiling to pay like 20500.... 16000 loan prob 2-3K back from selling the 300C and paying 2500-4500 extra for a clean sti.... hmmm i dunno need to sleep on that one.

Gas mileage isn't that much better.. haven't checked on insurance and its a car that prob doesn't have the same fit and finish as the 300C meaning it prob creaks and rattles way more.... but i already have a double din and new speakers and adapters to make them fit in an sti sooooooo fairly set on that haha

not too sure on a creek. i had my rear struts clunk over bumps and it was the upper mounts. the sti is definitely raw compared to a 300c. i had a lot of rattles and creeks but then again i was on coilovers. i still think sti's are awesome cars especially in the snow. with proper tires the car is unstoppable. ill probably pick one up in the future again Cool
