FS: Swapped 1999 Impreza RS
« on: September 14, 2008, 09:30:31 PM »
The car is SOLD as of January 12, 2009


For sale is my 1999 Subaru Impreza with a full 2002 WRX swap. I’ve owned this car since February 2001 and 13000km’s. There are many OEM options on this car and one of the few swapped Impreza’s that actually has all of its options working (AC, cruise, power steering, heated seats). For a complete full story of what happened to this car and the step by step build up look through the following link:

http://westernsubaruclub.com/smf/index.php?topic=1651.0

OEM options installed: heated seats, 2007 sti up-pipe, factory Subaru navigation package (outside temperature display, compass, altimeter, barometer), factory motorized folding mirrors, I/C sprayer system, headlight washer system, glove box light, ash tray light, high rise center arm rest, adjustable intermittent wipers (that’s right, Impreza’s didn’t come with this in 99 lol), flat fuel door with pull cord release, JDM red hazard button, JDM taillights, JDM front bumper (same as US), Version 6 front lip, WRX rear pass through seat, rubber (washable) trunk liner.

Aftermarket options installed: stainless steel brake lines/clutch line, HKS downpipe, COBB catalytic converter back exhaust, COBB AccessPORT ECU program, Prosport peak/hold boost gauge, Rust Stop sacrificial anode corrosion protection system (have two spare magnesium anodes that will come with the car), Rear reverse parking sensors, Compustar starter/alarm system, one main siren with two auxiliary mini-peezo high frequency sirens located behind the dash board and in the trunk, heated seats turn on with starter, remote trunk popper, starter kill etc. , Pioneer AVIC-D3 dvd/nav with XM/Sirius and Ipod cable included (it’s not just “ready” for the adapters I went out and bought all three), amp and sub with capacitor, solid mount fire extinguisher located in the trunk, full dynamat from firewall matting straight to the end of the trunk (trunk has two layers and there is one layer inside of the wheel wells), 3M front end protection with new paint on the hood last August, Kart Boy short shifter with poly front, rear, shifter and transmission bushings.

All parts needed for returning the car back to stock are included plus many more (spare front corner lights, door panels, AC condensers, etc.)

The reason I’m selling this car is because I have taken on a new project.:


 It has been ongoing for a while now and it’s time to pay the body shop. Please, no comments or questions about the NSX; PM me instead and keep this thread clean.

The Impreza currently has just over 55000km on the engine, tranny, differential, brakes, suspension, all bushings/bolts, front and rear seats. Just the bare shell, dashboard, door panels and carpet have 88000km on them.

There aren’t many of these cars around anymore (not that there were many to begin with). Any and all inquiries welcome.

There is no set asking price.  The aftermarket mods as always are worth next to nothing compared to the car. For a basis I’m asking for 2002-2005 WRX prices with 55000km on them. Definitely willing to negotiate and any offers are welcome. I’m also looking for a 14 YEAR OLD or newer winter car (I can judge safety for myself and don’t need the insurance company doing it for me). Must be Japanese brand (preferably OBD2 civic cx).

The price is negotiable at $16900.

































Thanks for reading all of that.

I can't believe you're selling this.  Good luck with the sale.

I like the pics by the way, I work in Scotia Place.

Thanks, I tried to take pictures with a nice background.  Long story short, I fail at taking pictures.

Thanks for the free bump.

That price is a steal of a deal for the amount of work+time he's put in that car. GL with the sale.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is THE BEST WRX swap that has ever been done on a GC.  I've seen shops turn out worse jobs than this, and this car has everything working 110%.  I say 110% because it has options that were not available from the factory here but were available elsewhere.  Heated seats, headlight sprayers, etc.  This car is the nicest swapped RS I've ever seen and quite possibly the nicest one ever done.

Good luck with the sale, hopefully it goes to a loving home.

Thanks Chad/Genma for the comments.

Gd6noob: it's a relative term.  If you offer me $6000 then no, I won't budge.  If you offer $17899 then yes, I can budge.  I'm sure you have a price in mind.  A loose answer to your question is "no, I'm not".

I can not believe either that you are selling it!!! It's your baby???
I guess even babies eventually move out.

Good luck with the sale and bump for a nice car!

That's a great price too.
I would buy this in a heartbeat if I didn't have my GC already.

^^It's definitely still for sale.  I just didn't think you were serious.  05 RSs' sell for less than 98-01 RSs'.  And this one can barely be called an RS anymore.

Nothing is set in stone yet.  I'm the one who actually told him to wait until Friday as I have a final tomorrow, one on Wednesday and two on Thursday.  The replacement car is going to be a 95 Civic Si if the deal goes through.  I'm going to miss the heated seats of the Impreza the most.

Edit: Buyer got denied the loan.  Impreza back up for sale.

It's funny that you bump this though.  Someone just took a look at the car 10 minutes and the sale is now pending.

I was half-assay serious ... just testing the waters lol , and yes Some RS's sell for less.  But 45,000 k's on mine suggests otherwise.  I checked the trader and such b4 that.  Bout 15k is what I could get for mine.  I didn't think it would have been something you would have considered though.

Ebay about 3 years ago.  It was listed as a 94 bumper so nobody even clicked on the ad.  I looked through it and low and behold it was a version 6; complete with the holes already there for the OEM lip.  I'm guessing someone with a 94 put this bumper on their car and the person parting it out didn't know.  I got lucky.
