I thought I'd post this feeler here before I set up a proper FS thread in the marketplace. I have a non-limited 05 LGT 5MT
. I am the original owner
. It's Atlantic blue with ~118k miles
. No accidents that weren't purely cosmetic (parking lots around Boston...ugh). I'm preparing for a big move to DC with my lady, and we really won't need two cars down there, so, despite how much I love this car, the smart thing might be to let the ol' girl go.
is in pretty good shape - 10 years of daily driving, but nothing terrible. One dent on the left front fender and some paint scrapes on the bumpers. Windshield has some VERY minor spiderwebbing around an impact spot when a truck kicked up a branch and scared the shit out of me, but it doesn't leak (this happened in ~2008, and I've never felt it was necessary to replace it). Front bumper could probably use some adjusting after all the snowbanks last winter, but it's nothing pressing.
is similar - cloth interior, no rips in anything. Some standard scuffing on some of the plastics around the breadbox/cupholder area, but, again, nothing really notable by way of damage.
I've kept up with the maintenance, and the record is complete, apart from any modifications done by me or with other forum members (where there'd be no receipt for obvious reasons). Recent work done: timing belt is new, as is the steering rack, which was just due for replacement from time and New England. New spark plugs when the timing belt was done about 1500 miles ago. Clutch (et al) was replaced at about 37k mi (see below - I upgraded it), and the transmission locked up on me at ~75k and was also replaced.
Mod List (that I can remember off the top of my head - I'm traveling right now):
avo panel filter
gutted STI UP
Perrin DP, mid, and Y
accessport v2 OTS stage 2 map
***JMP upgraded VF46 installed soon***
act stage 2 clutch
cobb/hotckiss sways with reinforced rear mounts
KYB (stock replacement) struts
cusco front underbody brace
original-style aluminum rallitek skidplate
genuine JDM mesh grille
cobb shifter bushings
block8head (spelling?) gaugepod with a prosport 52mm mechanical boost gauge installed
2 shift knobs: momo/subie and stock
various minor brake upgrades over the years (braided lines, etc.), but no BBK.
oem JDM tails (with amber blinkers)
18x8 weds tc105N summer wheels with 225/40R-18 Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 tires, purchased summer 2015 (so only a few thousand on them).
17x7 stock wheels with snows (can't remember exactly, and I'm traveling right now) - probably one full season left on those tires.
This car has been well-loved. Still is loved, actually, and if it made sense, I'd keep it. But I guess sometimes things have got to give way for other things. Still working on price, but I was figuring somewhere around...$8,000
? Once I put in the new turbo, the car won't have any time-sensitive issues. I welcome any input. Just trying to gauge interest. Thanks!
Better pictures when I get home tomorrow, but for now this'll have to do:
