sti for sale!


i'm sad to say the time has come. i will probably regret this, but i'm putting the sti up for sale and i want to see it go to a good home.

you've seen the pictures, you've seen the video.. here are the details:

2005 STi. 42k miles currently on the odo.

i had to order this car from japan (an agonizing wait) since white is a highly desirable color. engine was properly broken-in. mobil 1 synthetic oil and factory filters used every 3k miles after. services done at dealer(northcoast subaru in glen cove, ny). they know me well!

i've spent a lot of time dialing in the handling of this car and the results show. the front grip and turn-in is awesome. great steady state balance, kickass in the slaloms. you can throttle steer it, pitch it into corners, drift it... it handles beautifully. this car is consistently at the top in the right hands. i will supply shock and tire pressure settings to the buyer if you're an autoxer.

suspension:
tein flex coilovers. 10kg/mm springs all around.
whiteline camber bolts.
whiteline 27/29mm front sway bar
whiteline adjustable rear sway bar.
kartboy endlinks front and rear

brakes:
goodridge stainless steel lines
ate super blue fluid
hawk hps brake pads all around
front brake rotors replaced recently.

power:
helix catted downpipe
spt catback
cobb accessport with custom maps. pdx stage 2 + 100 octane STU map.

this car makes sick power with either map.

3 sets of wheels:
stock silver bbs unmounted (also have re070 with decent tread left unmounted)
17x9 5zigen fno1rc (black with polished lip) with end of life advan neovas.
17x8 rota boost (gunmetal) with nokian WR all-season snow rated tires- badass in snow. great in dry.

interior:
factory short shift option
compass/autodimming mirror
factory lamco boost gauge
recaro speed driver's seat
jazzy engineering ipod adaptor
anti-theft security enhancements(i'll explain to buyer)

exterior:
rally armor mudflaps
holunfie stickers (+10hp)

extras:
tein 8kg/mm springs (pair)
strano 32mm front bar
factory rear sway bar
stock driver's seat
stock suspension
couple sets of track pads. ferodo ds3000, hawk ht-10

serious buyers only please. i guarantee that you will have a shit-eating grin on your face after a test drive. there is nothing to touch on this car to make it competitive for STU. if you want more comfort over the winter, put in the stock suspension like i have. the teins have never seen snow/salt.

kbb value on this car is $23k stock. i will let this go for $24k FIRM with ALL of the goodies. i believe that is more than fair. shoot me an email if you're interested. dancheung@gmail.com

PLEASE- no flakers or tire kickers.. serious buyers only!

what's next for me? most likely an s2k while i patiently wait for used exige prices to fall. rwd is calling me.

Douglas said...

you'll prolly miss the prodigious torque a lot, but a s2k or elise is very fun in a different way. :)

dan said...

s2k or lotus with prodigious torque would be heaven. i guess that's what an exige S is for. i guess that what codrives with adil are for!

Char said...

*ahem* remember to take down last year's PBX video ;-)

We'll miss this car, hopefully the buyer intends to race it.

dan said...

the potential buyer was IN the pbx video! it will be autox'd locally if the deal goes through too!

Joon Kim said...

Dan can't believe it...good luck with the sale.

Chris said...

WHAT??? GRRRRRRR

So Joe wants to buy it? The '06 WRX wasn't enough kick in the pants for him?

P.S. You're STiLL a traitor!

Wassup Dan, I'm sad to see your car go as this car really kicks ass. The price is definately a steal. See you in your s2k next year :)

dan said...

my new ride will most likely be in my hands by the weekend.

i'm really looking forward to the new challenges with the FR mobile.

car prep level is up in the air- i do have jay's bsp ride to really focus on. but it will be fun regardless!
