Are you in the market for a high performance Subaru and looking for something a little more unique than the typical WRX or STi? Love the style of a sport wagon? If so, this may be what you are looking for. I have decided to sell my car, not because I don't love it any more, but because it is an extra vehicle and I don't drive it much these days. Time for it to go to a new home. My wife wants it's spot in the garage.

It started life as a fully loaded 2006 Subaru Forester XT Limited with the very rare factory manual transmission and has been painstakingly and professionally transformed into a vehicle very similar yet superior to the JDM Forester STi. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer one and it has been loved and meticulously cared for since I bought it new in 06. Yes, I am the original owner and it has never been abused or on a race track. It has been garage kept since day one and was a west coast car until late last year when we moved back east. Condition wise it looks more like a 2 year old vehicle and attracts a lot of attention from car people. If you are in the market, this is the one you want!

I have owned many Subarus including a WRX, STi and Legacy Spec B but this is hands down my favorite ever and that is why I have kept it so long. I purchased it as my commuter car and once it was paid off began slowly altering it into my ideal daily driver friendly performance Subaru. It's fast, handles spectacularly, looks awesome and is a joy to drive and own.

It is Steel Grey Metallic with Black Leather interior. It doesn't have the Forester STi body decals on it but I do have them. When the timing belt came due it underwent a full mechanical reconditioning and many of the upgrades listed below. Lots of rare high end parts and numerous parts imported from Japan. No expense spared with all wear areas addressed within the last 20k miles. Gaskets, seals, mounts, reconditioned injectors, new struts, clutch and much more. This car is as mechanically reliable or more so than a new car. All of the work was done with the intention of keeping it for a very long time. Tires are still great but have about 10k miles on them. Check out the upgrade list below.

Also, this car is not 6 speed swapped. Why? Because it would be slower and heavier. The FXT manual transmission is strong, substantially lighter, and has better gearing. It is virtually identical to the JDM v5/v6 STi 5 speed and is not the weak WRX 5 speed. The better gearing is why a stock FXT with much less power is almost as fast as a stock STi. As set up, this car is much faster than a comparably modified STi.

If you have any questions or would like to schedule a time to come look at it, please email. Include your telephone number please. I will reply quickly. I am asking $16k but may be a little negotiable. I don't need to sell it for the money so don't waste my time with low-ball offers. It's worth what I'm asking. If you know Subarus then you know this is a very sought after "unicorn".
