interesting comments about the photo, thanks for the compliments!
did i get a good deal? sort of, it was about $400 more than what I wanted to spend on the car ($700 over invoice). but there were only a few white ones left in the area and this one had only 8 miles on it (no one test drove it). I'm located in Seattle. the hardest part was trading in my wife's car for such a hit. we took about 2 grand less on it than what we probably would of made selling it privately. but we'd been advertising the damn thing for about 5 months already and were sick of it!
Yeah, if it makes you feel any better I know that some states (like Ohio) give you a tax break and only tax you on the difference. ie a $15K trade in cuts your taxes in half. On a $30K car thats a big deal.
DANG...I had no idea that an STI could split wood. I'm thinking that since the car sits so low to the ground that it could probably be used as a snow plowing vehicle also. I have also noticed that it gets pretty warm up in the engine compartment and with that kind of heat, a person could probably use it for grilling hotdogs. If anyone has any other use for this vehicle, please let me know .
Seriously, your white with silver looks very nice. Enjoy your new ride and welcome to the club! 8) .
