View Full Version : WTB - 03-05 WRX or ADM S15

15-06-09, 05:53 PM
I have a mate who is looking to purchase either a Subaru Impreza WRX 03-05 model or alternatively an ADM Nissan S15.

- Either vehicle in a light form of modification.
- Must be manual!
- Looking to spend upto around the $22K mark, can stretch for the right vehicle.
- Within the Newcastle/Central Coast & Sydney regions.
- Would prefer to purchase from an enthusiast.

Have cash waiting. Looking to purchase within the next two weeks.

There are some really nice condition s15's on carsales. Search <100000 km to 25 and there is a really sweet, white manual one (unmod).
Same goes for wrx's. Plenty of unmodded bug eyes for less than 22k w/ less than 100k kms.

Exactly the case, alot are very rough, been in an accident and poorly repaired or both. Particularly rampet in Sydney's outer west. It was the exact same story when my wife and I were searching for our old S14.

This is the reason for requesting an enthusiast's vehicle. The car might have been driven harder over it's lifetime, however you'll generally find they are better and more regularly maintained overall IMO.

Although both models fall within the indicated price range in most places advertised, I hope that a fellow JDMSTer or friend of, may have something to offer.

look on carsales. with the rex's check the gearbox is smooth (box is the main problem) as well as wheel bearings.

s15s are getting old now, its hard to find a clean one

this is true.

WRX and s15 are different, as i'm sure you know. A good way to help you decide is to just sit down and figure out what you want from the car, then test drive one with that in mind. If it meets the requirements then you will not regret buying it.

i wouldnt buy a wrx either (i've owned an 05wrx and a jdm and adm s15). not if your going to mod it. for that money id look at an evo or s15.

s15 is way fun, but evo will be quicker
