When automotive companies allow their design and engineering teams to have an open checkbook and utilize the history and knowledge at their discretion, it is simply AWESOME! Unfortunately, very rarely does this happen because the accountants get involved and shut the project down to curtail costs and skimp on what the consumers really want. Well in 2002 Subaru unleashed their highly skilled Tecnica department team to create the WRX for the North American market. This was met with huge accolades by the Subaru enthusiast and any rally minded person. Two years later the STi was launched and provided a larger 2.5L engine, six speed manual, limited slip differential, larger Brembo brakes, BBS wheels, and the iconic rear spoiler.
DON'T BE SCARED!!!! This is a one-owner STi that was owned, loved and maintained obsessively with no expense spared. Car was ordered on 5-21-2003 by Mr. Keech out of Concordville Nissan/Subaru out of Concordville Pennsylvania. Vehicle was delivered on August 13th of 2003 with 3 miles on the odometer. Vehicle was ordered nicely with all standard features along with a few select options from the factory; Turbo Boost Gauge, wheel locks, armrest extension, and auto dimming mirror, security system upgrade, and carbon fiber pattern trim on console and doors.
This car was serviced routinely every 3k miles with proper oil changes and tuned and slight modifications done by Agile Automotive Performance in Fallston Maryland. Vehicle has been nicely preserved in stock setup minus a few modifications that are strictly to allow the engine to breathe better and perform. The mods include; proper tuning by Agile, Cobb air intake and filter box, Perrin oil catch can, light weight battery, COBB exhaust, RPS Max Street clutch, Whiteline front and rear sway bars, slotted brake rotors, Beltronics Accelerometer, and upgraded inter-cooler water sprayer. Since this was a radio delete car that owner also added a nice Alpine stereo with XM, Bluetooth and CD player along with speakers and a sub in the rear that could easily be removed.
This car runs strong and with such an early serial# on the engine, it is believed to be one of the few that were hand built at the Subaru factory. Vehicle is in excellent condition and the miles do not reflect the condition of the vehicle. It has been kept in a detailed state its entire life, used as a daily driver to commute 150 miles / day. The owner coveted the car and didn't ever balk at the opportunity to improve the car or service it based on the mechanic. A February 2020 service by Agile Automotive Performance of Forest Hill, Maryland included a new timing belt, water pump, drive belts, heater core hoses, idler pulleys, power steering pump, and associated fluids. An IHI VF48 turbo was installed in 2012 after the factory turbocharger failed at 88k miles.
Vehicle comes with all the goodies you would expect from a one owner vehicle and is further proof that this car was treated properly and not abused or neglected. We have the original bill of sale, odometer disclosure, business card, MSRP, receipt, key tag, line ticket, owner's manuals, factory brochures, manuals, some extra oil filters and a host of service records.
