Cylinder 2: 137/96 psi
Cylinder 3: 132/94 psi
Cylinder 4: 126/88 psi

The driver's door and mirror are damaged, neighbor backed into the car when parked.

The front bumper is skewed slightly because when I moved, the Penske trailer I rented had a lip at the front, the car drove on fine but when I backed off of the trailer, the bumper snagged on the trailer lip and pulled off.

There is no trunk carpet. The factory front undertray is missing, I ran a Primitive Racing 3/16" aluminum skidplate the entire time, that skidplate will not come with the car.

There is a ding / scratch on the hood. Someone threw or dropped a rock on the hood when it was parked.

This is a rust free example of a 2005 STi. It has been taken care of, but shows normal wear and tear on a 15 year old car. This car has not been offroad and is very clean underneath.

The gauge pod on the dash was a factory option, but the oil temp sensor is pretty worn out and I never got around to replacing it, so the gauge sporadically works. I can't think of any other issues with this car that is not listed.

Everything else on this car works.

Please let me know if you have questions or want to see anything in particular, virtually.
