Cool Impreza WRX 300 - 2005

Had my WRX300 2005 model for a few months now and was wondering what people thought of having the full rally decals put on it? put the value up or down if/when i go to sell it??

Re: Impreza WRX 300 - 2005

Really depends on whose buying the car, but in general I would say it is not gonna do you any favours in terms of re-sale putting decals on the car. I don't mind them but would never put them on my car, and by extension wouldn't buy a car with them on. As with any modification, it will affect the value of the car, and as with most mods usually negatively.

That being said, they can be removed so if you wanted to sell it no reason you couldn't take them off. Not sure what the effect on the paintwork would be though but shouldn't imagine there would be any major issues.

I'd say leave her as she is, but it doesn't really matter what other people think, its your car after all. Dont know what it would do to the resale value, you might find someone wants it that way, but it may put some off.
Prob not much help to you-sorry

Re: Impreza WRX 300 - 2005

got to agree with ed i would leave it plan other wise when you come to sell the car it might put people off (the age of the potential buyer will be lower) .but having said that some decals do look really nice

Re: Impreza WRX 300 - 2005

A mate of mine had a 05 Sti will full rally decals, he said the bad points did kinda out weight the good points for having them. The rozzers pulled him over more times than he could remember to check all was legal and not long after some f*#k heads poured paint stripper on the bonnet. Have to agree with all above, keep it simple.
