Up for auction is my baby. It's a 2006 WRX with the STi 6Speed manual trans and more, with no rust.
It has 70,xxx original miles

This car runs and drives great, shifts smooth and no grinding when going into gears! You can drive it home, don't worry about towing. I have owned the car for over two years (but only had the title transferred into my name after completing the 6speed swap). I bought it with a bad 5speed manual trans. It took me a over a year to save up and then do the 6speed swap (trans, drive shaft, axles, brembo brakes, rear diff, clutch, rotors, rims, tires, hubs etc.) only this spring have I been able to drive it and really enjoy it. I could probably count on two hands how many times I've driven it. During the time of doing the swap I put a few decals on it (they can be easily removed) to try make it look like a track/rally car. I have never taken it to the track or rallied it. The switch board in the dash where the radio goes is not wired up (just put in to cover up the hole, for now haven't had the time for it).  
This was going to be my track/fun car but plans have changed. I have a one year old son now and I can't afford a car just sitting in my garage and don't have the time to finish it. I have a lease on another car (my daily driver) that will be running out soon and I'm going to need something more practical for a family (the reason I'm selling my Subi) 
The car is sitting in a heated/cooled warehouse on a trickle charge to prevent the (new) battery from going bad and to keep it out of the rain/sun/snow. I have never driven it in the snow with all the salt on the roads. The under body is super clean with no rust. This car is my baby and has been well looked after.
If you have any other questions feel free to contact me either by text or email. I work full time and can't call most of the time
I have many more pics and videos I can send you

Hood and trunk are Plasti Dipped as is the foglight covers and lip on the front bumper. (It can be removed, has only been on for the last 4 months) Was going to do the roof too but don't have the time. The hood is a little dirty from quickly wiping it down for pics.

Cons:
DCCD is there but not wired up I have all the controls just missing the wiring.  
It does have a couple small dents (from other car doors, nothing major) from the previous owner. 
Due to the power its putting out there some rear diff slap (you can google it) the rear diff needs harder/stronger bushings to solve this, just never had the time or the money to do it. 
Occasionally I have an code pop up (P0607) if you google it you will see 2 things it could be. For me its a bad ground somewhere because Hi beam and reverse lights don't work. (It is not in limp mode) I can rev as high as I want and have videos to prove it.
Could use a fender roll (sometimes it will rub with a really hard dip in the road).

None of this affect the performance or the handling of the car

Lights that are on the dash
ABS (because of sti cluster swap, common)
Rear diff temp (because its not grounded, common with sti cluster swaps)
Airbag (on because front seat airbags are not plugged in, the plug was different from 2006 to 2011)
Brake (also because of sti cluster swap)

You can text me at (248)705-7335 
I can send you more pics and videos if you have any questions please contact me
I have tried explaining everything in full detail so you have the best understanding of what you are bidding on. 
I do have it for sale locally too and have the right to end the auction.

Drive looks at a pair of STI-ified Subaru Impreza RS Coupes

Tue, 15 Oct 2013 12:32:00 EST

Among tuners, the legions of Subaru fans are hard to top, displaying all the fanaticism of English soccer fans and a dedication to their vehicles that borders on obsessive. These are compliments, by the way. In the latest video from Drive, Matt Farah takes a look at a pair of very special Imprezas - early Impreza 2.5RS Coupes that have had some serious heart transplants.
The first, a traditional blue model, sports the 2.5-liter, turbocharged flat-four from the 2004 WRX STI, which is good for around 300 horsepower. The other Impreza is a bit more hardcore - the engine is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder from the JDM WRX STI, which we suppose makes it more of an Impreza 2.0RS Coupe. Besides the different engines, both cars represent the unique ideas and style of their owners.
The 10-minute video explores this, digging into why people tune, and how it's a reflection of their own personal driving style and character. Take a look below for another fun vid from the team at Drive.

LA Design Challenge invokes biology for 2025 concepts [w/poll]

Wed, 13 Nov 2013 17:00:00 EST

Participants in the annual LA Design Challenge always manage to come up with edgy, wacky designs for future vehicles, but with a theme of "Biomimicry and Mobility: 2025" this year's crop of cars might be the quirkiest we've ever seen. As usual, automotive designers from around the world participated in this year's competition, and all the designs will all be unveiled next week during the LA Auto Show with a winner being announced on November 21.
Chinese automakers made a strong showing with Qoros, SAIC Motor, JAC Motors (the company responsible for the Ford F-150 clone) and Changfeng all bringing interesting takes on the biology, human intelligence and sustainability theme. One of the more innovative ideas among these automakers is the Qoros Silk Road System allows autonomous vehicles to drive in packs similar to how ants travel. Speaking of ants, the SAIC Motor Mobiliant (shown above) gets its design from the shape of an ant's body, and, like the insect, it can climb building acting as a personal elevator as well. The JAC Motors design also merges vehicle and building design, while the Changfeng LaBrea inspired by the design of muscle fibers.
Other entrants include Subaru and US-based design teams for BMW, Toyota and Mazda. BMW's duo of concepts mimic plant and animal life. The LA Subways concept acts as a submersible, single-person vehicle to take advantage of the LA river, with a shape similar to an Ocean Sunfish. The Sustainable Efficient Exploratory Device (SEED) imitates the shape of a seed pod, and uses propulsion methods inspired by a shark, dragonfly and a water bug. Mazda's Auto Adapt might be the most car-like concept of the bunch, while the Subaru Suba-Roo and the Calty-designed, Toyota e-grus are the most mind-blowingly awesome.

Toyota to offer sedan version of GT 86?

Fri, 11 Oct 2013 11:15:00 EST

Sources in Australia are reporting that we'll be seeing a small, rear-drive sedan from Toyota, based on the GT 86/Scion FR-S. Yes, a convertible variant is still in limbo, but a four-door sedan is in the works. It's unclear if the rumored GT 86 sedan would spawn Scion and Subaru variants (it's hard to cross all ten fingers while you type, but we're having a go).
Working with remarks made by the car's chief engineer Tetsuya Tada in his blog and a rendering from Japanese magazine Holiday Auto, the Australian site Motoring is claiming that the new model's wheelbase will grow about four inches over the current GT 86's 101.2-inch wheelbase.
Besides the larger overall space between the axles, the sedan will offer a more potent engine option over the current 2.0-liter, flat-four. Promising 268 horsepower, which is a big jump over the current car's 200 ponies, the new powertrain will be derived from the Hybrid R setup, shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show. If, like us, you're reaching for the salt, and we don't blame you.
