    Welcome, do a lot of research before buying any older wrx or sti models. Pretty common for people to beat on these cars pretty hard. With proper maintenance, tuning, and driving habits these cars are great. Without 1 or more of those things they *can* be a ticking time bomb. Just take your time and try to find out as much as possible on the car's history.

    15 GBP STi

    I’ve have a 2002 ford ranger edge
    I currently have a 2010 f150
    2005 Impreza 2.5 RS wagon
    And now just got my wife a 2014 Impreza sport hatch 2 years ago.

    I’m thinking like a 08 sti,

    Yeah I plan on doing a lot of research on the vehicle I buy, I do all my own work on all the vehicles I’ve owned so I’m going to do all a lot of looking over anything I’m thinking of buying

    Welcome!

    Doing your own work is a great start! Are you looking to buy stock, or something more built up?

    The problem with "stock" or "mostly stock" cars is that you're never sure they weren't heavily modified before. These are an EXTREMELY popular platform to mod, and people will often revert them back to stock and sell off all their old parts to maximize their returns. They can get money from the parts (often what/more than they paid if they got used to begind with, and then the car gets a premium for being "stock").

    If/when you do a pre-purchase inspection, you need to look for telltale signs, such as fresh hardware in the exhaust, or exhaust bolts that ARENT rusted closed. I'm sure others will have some other signs to look for as well.

    I don’t mind buying slightly modified would just prefer to know someone didn’t beat the shit outta it,

    Thanks for the signs to look for, I’ll be making sure to do a full look over the vehicle
