2007 Subaru WRX STI LIMITED 547/800 URBAN GREY
Please watch this youtube video which has a large slideshow of photos!
I am the second owner of this beautiful machine. I purchased this STI Limited from California in 2010 with about 16,000 miles, and shipped to Connecticut in a closed trailer. The previous owner had it as a weekend car; it was his baby. He purchased the Cobb Port for it, and it has always run a stage 1 tune (which apparently makes the air/fuel mixture better). Besides the stage 1 tune the car is bone stock. The previous owner mentioned that had he kept the car he would have done a SPT or Cobb downpipe and an aftermarket intake, but never got around to it. The previous owner did spend around $6,000 on a completely custom and well balanced audio system.
Upon purchasing the car I intended to daily drive it, but despite its bolstered heated leather seats, sound system and sunroof, the STI Limited is a raw sports car. So like the previous owner I chose to keep it as a weekend car, and continued to daily my BMW 335. It has always been washed and waxed by hand and is taken on nice weekend drives in the Connecticut countryside spring, summer and fall. In the winter the car is stored in a temperature controlled garage, Stabil put in a full tank of 93, battery tender attached, and tires over pressurized (and rolled around occasionally) so not to get flat spots. Despite their reputation for being great in the snow, this car has never seen snow or salty roads. It has also never been tracked and was always adult driven.
I am selling this STI because it has become one of too many toys. I barely have time to drive one weekend car, so now the STI gets neglected for the 911. The STI needs a new owner to baby her.
The car is completely MINT. It is without a doubt in my mind the cleanest STI Limited out there. It is one of 400 in the Urban Grey color and #547/800 STI Limited models produced. There are a few minor scratches here and there but they are almost unnoticeable without already knowing they are there. Any maintenance done to the car was done either at Danbury Subaru in Danbury, CT or EFI Logics in Bethel CT. EFI Logics is one of the best Subaru performance shops on the east coast. They recently flushed the diff fluid, did an oil change, brake fluid flush, brake pads and more. EFI also recommended I replace the brake rotors with stop tech Kryostop rotors but I never got around to it. The current rotors are not bad, but they are worn unevenly so they wear pads out more quickly. I just replaced the battery in the car as the charge was weak. The car also has brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires wrapped around the silver Enkei wheels unique to the STI Limited.
This past fall when I driving the STI I struck a possum that ran into the road. This cracked the original front splitter with the STI badge and lightly damaged the front bumper. The car's bumper was repaired and the splitter replaced by North State Custom in Bedford Hills, NY. The front bumper looks better than it did from the factory. There are absolutely no bad panel gaps, in fact they are better than factory. The front splitter no longer has the STI badge on it but looks just like the factory one.
I have all the receipts for any work done to the car, including those from the previous owner. Everything is documented.
The STI's interior, like the exterior, is mint. The console looks very clean with the Pioneer head unit. This car features the Subaru factory boost gauge on the steering column. The interior has always been cleaned with high end products. While I have owned the car I have cleaned and conditioned the leather a few times. No harmful sprays or all purpose cleaners have been used. Warm water and soft rags to wipe down and windex for windows. The car has both summer and winter mats. The drivers side summer mat is torn where it attaches to the single pin that holds it in place (a very bad design if you ask me). All the other mats are perfect. The driver's seat has very light wear on the outside bolster. The rest of the seats look new; the interior still has that new car smell. The trunk and trunk mat are very clean. The trunk mat isn't removable because the JL stealth box was mounted on top of it. The amplifiers are mounted under the trunk floor where the spare tire would have been. All the wiring is invisible; it is truly a stealth audio system. The spare tire is in a tire rack donut bag and can be kept in the car or left at home. The original radio is in the pioneer box and will be included with the car. The Cobb tuning port (box, instructions, etc) will also be included in the sale.
The audio system features a pioneer touchscreen head unit which looks simpler and more elegant than stock. The head unit also features bluetooth phone capability (has a mic built in) and a reverse camera mounted in the license plate location. It has upgraded pioneer speakers in all the doors (component in front/coax in rear) and a kicker amplifier to power them. It also has a JL 10w6v2 subwoofer in a stealth box, and a kicker amplifier to power that as well.
A note to the buyer:
The milage will vary slightly as I do take the car out occasionally.
Local Pickup is easier. Buyer pays and arranges shipping if desired.
Serious inquires only!!! No joyrides.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!
Thanks for looking!
Best of Luck
