      I have a 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX in obsidian black pearl with 62k miles that I am looking to trade, not to sell so no offers please, for a mk5 or newer, five door Rabbit or Golf, Impreza wagon (no WRX/STI), Outback, Forester, Jetta Wagon, or hatchback/wagon in general. Pics and more information are posted below.
      I need a bigger car as I'm transporting music equipment and telescopes around frequently, so I'm looking to get into a hatchback/wagon. Still love the car and it drives great. The interior is still in immaculate condition.

      Most recent updates (listed below):
      - New timing belt
      - New water pump
      - New power steering pump
      (All documentation for work performed on hand)

      Feel free to pm me or email me at jacobtburba@gmail.com with offers/questions/etc.

      Here's some info:

      2005 Subaru Impreza WRX
      - 5-Speed manual
      - 88k miles (correction) majority of which are highway
      - No major issues, just recently fixed a minor vacuum line leak
      - Passed emissions in January 2014
      - Brakes have 35%-40% life left
      - Tires (Goodyear Eagle GT's) have lots of tread left
      - I have all documentation of maintenance and work performed on hand
      - The vehicle was involved in a minor accident in 2011. The front driver side fender and wheel were the only areas involved.
      Fully repaired, with no salvage title and I have all documentation of repairs performed. You can tell from the pictures below
      the shop did a great job wit the repairs.

      Modifications:
      - Rota Formula 18x8 +35 all around
      - Powder coated black
      - Megan Racing Track Series coilovers
      - Intense Power catback
      - Subaru Performance Tuning short ram intake

      I bought the car from its second owner who needed to get rid of the payments. He bought it Certified Pre-Owned from Power Subaru. I got it at around 36xxx miles in July of 2009.

      I also have a Thule roof rack with fairing and a catless downpipe with external wastegate (its plugged right now).

      I've babied this car. I've only used full synthetic oil, I've never tracked it, and the interior is flawless. I also added an auxiliary cord that plays through the CD player.

      If I missed anything or you have any additional questions let me know!

      The white-ish lines on the door panels are just the reflection off of the car. There's only some minor scuffing on the rear driver's side door panel but it's nothing major at all.


      Don't know why this one came out so blurry. Interior's in great shape though!









      If you want any other pictures let me know!

      ^^^ Looks pretty clean! But the miles are too high for me. Need something around the same range of 65k-70k.

      I'm just looking to step into something different. I still love the subie, but I've always wanted a vw. I need more trunk space too, since I'm always transporting music equipment.

    25. 04-25-2012 03:36 AM #25
      I've seen, ridden and helped work on It. This Wrx is very clean. I want to trade him my car but he doesnt want it

      back in july I sold off my MK3 4 door vr6 turbo golf and bought an 03 wrx wagon.
      Theyre similar but different. I like my WRX
      I hope you get your car sold and get what you want.

      :Bump for a great post:

      Have you considered just selling it, then buying a MK5? I'm currently car shopping myself, and find myself torn between Subies and a VW. Its hard to find a GTI I like enough to buy, but decently powerful Imprezas are just so damn expensive.
      Good luck to you, sir.

      Figured I would give this a long time since it's been bumped bump.

      Updates on the car include:

      Mileage: 88k
      Tires still in great shape (less than 10k on tires)
      Recently replaced:
      - Power steering pump
      - Timing belt
      - Water pump

      Car still runs great, and I'm still open to trades if anyone is interested. Just read the initial post(s) for possible trade vehicles.
      I could be open to selling as well, but in the mean time, just looking at possible trades.

      Feel free to message me with any additional questions.
