    I am finding less time to enjoy this car, selling it to another enthusiast would make it happy.*

    This is a Canadian car not an import, it has had no accidents, and it is also not a rebuilt. This wrx sti was taken care of beautifully since day one by its orginal owner of 9 years. I purchased this car over a year ago with intentions of holding onto it. Each year this classic body style and model become more rare.

    When purchased the car was bone stock, since then I did a bunch of maintenence and light upgrades.

    -perrin*pitch mount
    -intercooler removed, cleaned
    -new silicone hoses and t bolt clamps
    - blow off valve gasket
    -cobb SF intake box
    -grimspeed AOS
    -mishimoto*radiator, mishimoto hoses, t bolts
    -OEM thermostat
    -3 inch catback fujitsubo*
    -3 inch catless downpipe (ceramic coated)
    -cobb up pipe (ceramic coated)
    -UEL header (ceramic coated)
    -grimspeed triple thick gaskets for everything
    -grimspeed 3 inch adaptor
    -killer B oil pick up
    -killer B oil baffle
    -new OEM oil pan, gaskets
    -new oil+filter
    -new upstream and*downstream 02 sensors
    -rear diff fluid changed
    -front diff fluid changed
    -new spark plugs
    -new tie rods
    -whiteline lower geometry ball joints
    -cusco underbody chassis braces
    -BC racing coilovers with adjustable camber plates all around
    -front and rear fenders professionally rolled and pulled
    -stock gold bbs wheels and tires included
    -brand new 18x9.5 5zigen wheels (negotiable into the price)
    -brand new 265/35/18 Goodyear tires (negotiable into the price)

    As you can see I have spent a lot of money making this car even better and more pristine.

    Last month the car was cobb protuned, currently the power is around 380-390 to the crank. This is a seriously fast car, and highly capable of so much.*

    If you are looking for the rawness and styling that the wrx sti had then this is the car for you. The new ones don't compare, I have owned new ones, the 05-07 years are a class of their own.

    The motor runs strong, just over 156,000kms, timing belt was done 20,000kms ago. All upgrades and maintenence were done in the last 2,500kms. I don't drive this car much, it's a weekend car.

    Any questions just ask, no rush to sell. I will accommodate viewings, but test drives will be very limited. If you want it, you will have the money.

    NEW PRICE: $21,800 (without 18 inch wheels)

    I am located in Vancouver.

    Message me if you are interested.

    Wish I had seen this post earlier.

    Just finished car shopping, guess I should lurk more often.

    Hope this goes to someone who cares about it as much as you do and not someone launching it at 6000 revs on dry pavement :/.

    Honestly, I'm gonna enjoy the R stock for a bit. It's really quick, in the higher rpms it rips.

    I may go stage 1 this year, but instead of all the off the shelf maps I probably want to get a custom dyno tune done.

    I got to test drive one when I was shopping for a AWD turbo 4 banger and the interior is very nice too in them, Mitsubishi gave me the best price though out of the three (Subaru) and the RS was too much of a what if to wait until it's release.

    I was impressed they didn't have a manual so I only got to try out the automatic (Dual clutch fancy etc) similar to the Evo MR auto, but at the end of thleast day third pedal wins!

    Did you notice a big difference in fuel usage with the tune and added power or rather your right foot just got heavier haha

    I don't have a tune yet on the R...or were you meaning the sti.

    The sti got terrible gas mileage, the R kills it, almost 450 to a tank. The sti I was lucky to get 300.

    I would of bought a brand new sti, but the old motor, no power improvements over the past 10 years, and a cheap interior justified the new sti no good.

    Yeah my bad was referring to your STi not the R :).

    Doesn't the new WRX make more power than the STi with the new motor, is what the salesmen was telling me when I was driving them.

    How big is the tank in the R?
