    Picked up this 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STi this past Monday from Michigan. After communicating with the seller I decided to fly out to look at the vehicle and test drive it. I ended up purchasing it and driving it back the same day.

    It had 87,900 miles when I purchased it. Currently (8/12/2018) it has 88,500 miles on it.

    The previous owner was not planning on selling it so he did some maintenance on it. He had all the receipts from the work.

    Timing belt (105k service) @ 85k
    Intake Air & Cabin Air Filters at 86k
    Turbo inlet pipe (stock cracked, replaced with Perrin) @ 86k

    Thanks! :)

    Thanks! :)

    Thanks! :)

    Interior is clean! Some marks on the trim pieces around the radio. I'll take pictures tomorrow.

    I'm replacing the rear view mirror (glue/adhesive over time I guess is showing around the edges). Aux port doesn't work and I'll be fixing that but that's it.

    It was a {really} quick trip.

    Plane left at 830am from BWI
    Landed in Detroit around 10am
    Seller picked us (my buddy flew out with me) up from Detroit airport
    He drove us to a location closer to his credit union.
    We inspected the car and I took it for a test drive.
    Discussed it with my buddy then the seller drove us to the credit union and we completed the deal

    Around 12:30pm my buddy and I were heading back to Maryland. We got home around 9pm.

    Actually it's quite a bit smaller than my '15 WRX ;)

    No plans for the Honda. Daily it like I've been doing and drive the STi on the weekends :)

    Thanks Chris :thumbsup:
