I finally purchased a new car (Used 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek) because it suits my life better right now, and I needed something reliable for New England winter to get to work. I can't afford to have 2 cars, nor do I have the space with my current apartment, so I need the money to help pay for the car, and keep up with rent, etc.

Pros,
S50B30 M3 motor and transmission swapped, 5-speed manual.
Only just over 100,000 miles on the Motor (motor owned since 52k)
H&R Fully Adjustable Coilover suspension System
H&R 19mm Rear Swaybar with Endlinks
17" Forgeline RS rims with spacers
M3 leather seats (need reupholster repair on drivers seat)(Have stock seats too)
Borla Xr-1 Race muffler with custom 2.5" piping and highflow Cat
VIS carbon Fiber hood (have stock hood too)
M3 front brakes
Stainless Steel Brake Lines
New(6 months) Slotted rotors and brake pads
3.23 Limited Slip Differential
New Tires (less than 1,000 Miles)
Battery relocation to trunk
M3 front bumper Clean, New, but not attached
M3 side skirts, Clean, New but not attached

Cons,
Coolant leak from thermostat housing
Battery is not holding up to New England Winter
Door Panels are off, and need new mounts to attach
Drivers window Lift lever Bent/window only goes down 3 inches
~160k Miles on body
Some rust on rear left wheel well, and bottom middle of trunk lid

I have tons more information(and am probably missing things) and am happy to answer questions, I didn't have a lot of time to write this post, but will try to update with pictures, etc. I am looking for a fair price. The car needs some work, but it also has a lot of great stuff too, it has been reliable up to this point, but it is time to move on for me. Please keep this in mind for offers, but I am negotiable. -Tyler
