Well, its finally come time for me to give selling my car some serious thought. The ONLY reason i am considering is that as the type of audio installs that i do grows in complexity, I find myself needing to haul bigger and bigger sheets of wood, plexi etc. To that end, a full size truck is perhaps better suited to my daily grind than my beloved LGT. I am not a two vehicle type of guy so the option of buying an additional truck is out.
The car started as a 2005 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT limited 5EAT wagon, at the time of purchase this is about the most expensive model in the Legacy line up, stickering at around 33-34k. It is fully loaded, power everything, leather and a giant sun roof that Dual zone climate control, etc etc.
113k miles, meticulously maintained, mechanically and cosmetically excellent shape.
No loans, all paid off, never was even remotely close to being in an accident. I am second owner, purchased the vehicle when it was 1 year old from the local Subaru dealer.

Pics are from a few years back...she looks basically the same now. The trophies pic shows about half of the trophies this car has won for its sound quality and installation precision
Estimated HP/TQ at the crank is 400/425 or 450, with spool time as fast as stock due to the relatively modest sized turbo and Meth.
Over the course of my ownership, the car has been extremely well taken care of, the engine has seen nothing but Eneos 0w20 oil (high end JDM oil), and everything else regularly maintained. the car also has had a full detail with clay bar and wax every year with regular washes.
This is also my demo vehicle for my car audio installation business, and I compete with it regularly on the sound quality circuit. The install has won me quite a few trophies over the last few years...and sounds very nice...and being a california car you know there is no rust issue what so ever.
here is a full Build Log of the system, one that I have given out estimates of around $11k to duplicate:
the normal amount of slight dings and cips here and there along with interior scrapes mainly in the back from hauling big things
could use a new set of tires in the next few thousand miles
the light bulb behind the engine temp guage burned out so the white portion doesnt light up, but the needle and the red range indicator still works so you can easily tell whats going on.
The car is still VERY fast, i never beat on the car and have performed exactly TWO standing brake torque starts when i borrowed a friend's Gtech after the performance mods were done. The car sprinted to 60 in 4.3 seconds and quater mile estimate in the high 12s at around 109 iirc.
With the meth injection and a relatively modest sized turbo, the car spools just as fast as stock (actually faster) but yet still have excellent top end. If you live somehwere other than Cali, you can retune the car for 93 octane and get another 15-20HP out of it.
Gas mileage expect around 17-18 city, and 25-26 hwy, I drive about 80 percent city and 20 percent hwy, and i average around 20.5...on long trips to socal, i have seen as high as 27.5.
So selling the car as a whole package, everything included, plus the OEM spare tire, and the accessport
So basically, you are looking at a well maintained, fast, safe, relatively luxurious, practical vehicle that also sounds great at the same time.
KBB values the car in its stock form at $11500:
Kelley Blue Book
I have spent roughly $15k of my own money on the car (normal cost on everyhting would be closer to 25k for a private person).
Now, i am simply asking $15000 for the entire thing.
