Why I'm selling:
To be honest, I just don't drive the car much any more. I loved it for many years and spent a lot of time, money, blood, sweat, and tears taking care of it. I did most of the mods myself, with the help of a few expert shops & tuners along the way. I have a few other cars now, and it's time for the STi to go to a new home who will appreciate her like I did for so long. The built motor only has about 10k miles on it and is solid as a rock. NEVER TRACKED - NOT ONCE. I most recently put it back on the dyno in June 2022 - zero issues. I hope someone can give this car a good home and drive it like it's meant to be driven.

These pics do not show the current sun-fade of the paint on the hood & trunk. I will snap some new photos and add them to the listing soon.
