What's a 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STi go for? $10k to $15K?

I like to "dream" bigger, like a Lamborghini Aventador.


More reasonable dream for me would be an Acura TL though.

You may want to check out this thread then, Post Your Realistic Dream Car

For me it would have to be, anything with a Ferrari badge and any other exotic really, but if we are talking dream and unobtainable, it would have to be Dahlback RSi Golf. A car built by John Dahlback using an MK4 Golf Chassis and an Audi AAN 2.2l motor. I can't remember the all the details, but the motor was destroyed to allow for higher RPMs. If I remember the drivetrain (AWD) is from Volkswagen. The car has around 1200hp and is just a monster. This is my dream car since it is privately owned, and I will never own it.

In that thread I posted the next generation NSX as my pick, but I have changed my mind. I would rather have the original with mods to bring its power up to modern competition levels.

North America Ford Ranger. There's just something fun about driving those little trucks. Love mine quite a bit. I could go on to post the reasons why I love them.

Problem with Lambos and Ferraris is they are so cookie cutter. Seen one, you seen 'em all, and the vast majority of people that either have them or want them care about status and saying "I have a Ferrari" and know next to nothing about the engineering behind them.

Then they go buy a 10+ year old 360 and floss it like it's brand new. Nothing wrong with them, but just too cookie cutter IMO.

That said, my dream car is a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T, I'll take either the 440 car or the unobtanium Hemi car.

I'd be happy with these:

A Aston Martin DBS to go to work:


A Maserati GranTurismo 2012 to go to take the girlfriend (that i would get super fast) to dinner.


And of course, a Lamgorghini Aventador to use when i'm late for something and the Panamera is behind it in the garage...

The Saab 9-5 SportCombi (ng9-5). 27 cars ever manufactured. Unfortunately, you cant rationalize it economically since there are no spare parts whatsoever. And its uninsurable. Also not a single mechanic (including Svenska Bil*) will even touch it. Even with gloves, a hazmat suit and a ten foot pole.



*former Saab retailer

Lets not forget to mention that the lot of them are VIN blacklisted. There is only one registered car in the country. They're practically impossible to get road legal.

$15 - $25k depending on mileage condition and such. $10 - $15 gets you just the WRX

Please don't put it on bags. Lower it but don't slam it.

Agreed, don't be a "scene" kiddie like the morons in GTIs on bags with stretched tires. Way too much of that airbag/stretch trash on VW Vortex.

A nice set of aftermarket springs will do the trick. The car will look better and perform better without becoming useless. A Mustang doesn't need to be "hArD pArKeD y0!"

Oh, they will perform well. I am friends with the guy that works at Airlift here, and he took me out in this car.





Bags are not just for the stance scene. Fully adjustable for whatever the conditions may be. Slam it at a car show if you want, and then raise it back up a little for the drive home.

To each his own.

Steeda Sport Springs and Koni STR.Ts was enough for me. Other than basic suspension mods I got a Saleen VI.5 supercharger and lovin' it. My style is keeping the looks unassuming. Blown and happy. Cheers.
