I traded my 2017 Chevy Spark plus gave the guy a wad of money for this WRX base model. He had the engine built just a few months ago for $28,000! Yea, I went to the shop to confirm it. Copy of invoice: https://app.box.com/s/awpm6zqeu0ge0kwlfdx65pdm2tuwsfr9

Supposed to make around 450 HP on E85 tune. Wonder what I can sell it for.

Why'd they charge $330 to flush the heater core with the engine out?

Was the engine built as a upgrade or because it was blown? If cause it was blown, hopefully looked over other areas for signs of abuse possibly?

Didn't ask. It has 80,000 miles and lots of Subaru owners like to mod their cars after the warranty goes.

First line of the labor portion states " customer states that the motor is making noise, please diagnose" The next line is "remove engine". Sounds like the previous owner popped it. If someone wants a 2016 WRX, and the shop did what they say correctly and it's all working together right, then that's probably a really sweet car. I would be reluctant to own it only because if it gets wrecked, insurance is still only cutting you a check for $21-22k.

If I could sell it for that much I'll be very pleased.

Honestly you should be able to private party it for $20-21.5k all day in the DC area, especially to the plethora of well funded foreign college students and diplomats kids at GWU, American and Georgetown. Take some pics and put up a small poster with tear off phone numbers down by campus with a burner or voip phone number. It will be gone by Thanksgiving.

The previous owner drove it like he stole it and blew the engine.

Sorta. Having a kid. Didn't want to have a car note. Went to his bank to pay it off.

Looks pretty stock from the outside except for the intercooler in the front bumper, wheel spacers, Brembo brakes and big exhaust.

Oh aye, but as long as Atikovi owns it right and doesn't hold onto it too long he should make out pretty well on the past owners automotive missteps. A built WRX is a lot like an M5 automatic, or a girlfriend named Candy. They sure are fun to ride around, but they always need high dollar maintenance in one form or another. Plus no matter how much you spend there's that nagging suspicion she's still gonna blow a head gasket and is just not something you'd want to rely on if your life depends on it.
