    2009 WRX Premium 5 door (sold)


    2009 WRX Premium 5 Door.

    Currently 92,000 miles. One adult (senior citizen actually, so fuck you) owner. No stories.

    World Rally Blue. Hood scoop is faired into hood. No accidents, a few parking lot bumps over the years. It is the so-called “Narrow body” so it doesn’t have fake fender flares or four exhaust tips, just one. No badges.

    • Katzkin leather interior with red baseball stitching to match OEM steering wheel.
    • Kenwood DNX996XR head unit with BlueTooth and Apple CarPlay support with backup camera.
    • Power sunroof.
    • BBS forged STi rally wheels (gold) with Michelin Pilot Sport + tires.
    • Koni shocks.
    • Exedy Stage One clutch.
    • Cobb quick shifter.
    • Weathertech floor mats.
    • Car cover, can be used outdoors but mostly used in garage.
    • Not included but available are four 16” alloys with Nokian R winter tires.


    Engine was completely rebuilt/upgraded at 86,000 miles by Wicked Performance in Manchester, NH. Have receipts. 315 AWHP and 330 lb ft torque on dyno. No expense was spared to make a powerful, durable engine:

    • Subaru STi induction hardened crankshaft
    • Carillo +0.25mm forged piston set
    • ACL main bearings
    • King Racing XP Tri-Metal rod bearing set
    • ARP head stud kit
    • Killer B extra-capacity aluminum oil pan with windage tray and pickup
    • IAG Performance air/oil separator
    • 10mm oil pump for EJ257
    • 2008+ STi liquid/liquid oil cooler
    • Motul 8100 5W40 synthetic engine oil (7L)
    • NGK LFR7AIX iridium spark plugs
    • Subaru Group-N engine cradle mounts


    Front brakes were upgraded to four-pot Subaru calipers at 88,000 miles. Have receipts.

    Car was used as a commuter until 2014, has been stored winters since. I bought it to do AutoCross and track days, then got back into motorcycles so barely used for those purposes. As you can tell by the fact I’ve driven it 5,000 miles in four years, I just don’t drive it often enough and want to move on to other projects. Massachusetts title in hand. Asking $11,700 or best offer.

    I agree. Anything with a wagon, and a manual, that's fun to drive would be nice to see in a new car.

    I would probably prefer to own this car vs. my 2017 sedan with ~35k miles, so I hope/expect someone else to snap this up pretty fast.

    The 20-somethings mostly want the later, STI body style, with fender flares and four exhaust tips.

    I kept this and upgraded it because I didn’t want that.

    These cars push [understeer] a bit but the Michelins minimize it. Very impressive grip.

    We just downsized to one car due to semi-permanent work from home, but this would be at the top of my list if I was in the market

    I'm still trying to convince my SO that she needs this for an east coast car. She doesn't like the blue!

    Such a great car. Shame that the "kids" don't appreciate it, but that's also part of its charm. This will give the tuner types the surprise of their life

    Smaller market but this is freaking perfect for someone. Surprised it hasn't sold yet!

    Delivering, with cover and winter wheels. Edit: misread question. Removed the cover for towing, that was to keep rain off. It only has one tie off so not designed for highway use.

    Buyer is a former 2X WRX owner (and motorcyclist) who missed the performance.

    Picking up a seat for the Sprinter on the way back, so a two-fer. I’d arranged to pick u the van seat in Hackettstown NJ. Owner lives in NJ so we arranged to meet. Van guy met me at same mall.

    $59 trailer rental. UHaul car trailer is pretty heavy at 2,200 lbs but easy to load and tows well.
