too good to be true?

Just saw a 2003 wrx for sale at a bargain price... 8300...
Very low mileage, FSH, the works...

its hard to find a low mileage bug eye for that price let alone the blob eye...
is there something fishy going on or shall i enquire about a viewing?

sorry had been having a gander at there web site lol, they have no fixed contact location, all they have is yahoo email addy, which you can set up in 30 seconds, and mobile numbers which can be thrown away. Also viewing by appointment only, bet if you ring and book they will meet you at a house or by a roadside and not a dealership.

so worst case you get a problem car, go back to get refund and they have up and left.

if you can afford to risk 8k then its your choice, just sounds rather to well hidden to me

ok if you can gamble that sort of cash but if you want somewhere to take the car back too in case of emergency then seek a good dealer. Thenagain, thats prob private type money anyhow.

Maybe its a Euro spec that normally does sell for 1 to 2k cheaper than uk spec.

Keep looking

how can you tell if a wrx is a euro import or not just by looking at it?

might be wrong but i think only difference is the alrm system, and in some case not much difference.

if you thinking of buying a car ALWAYS get it HPI'd before you pay for it, that should show up if its a euro import.

also when you go to look at one, get the chasis number and chack that against the hpi. make sure it matches, if it doesn't its a dodgy car
