WTB: West Coast Aero under $10k

Howdy - long time Subaru owner wanting to find a nice 9-2x out here in the Western US.  I've been driving an SX4 for the last year and miss the power and fun of my 02 WRX wagon. 

Looking for a 9-2X in one of the lighter colors, Silver/Gray, with the Sport and Cold Weather packages.  Moonroof, heated seats, and a manual transmission are all must have options.  I've been checking CL, Car Gurus and all the sites, but haven't found much.  Figured that I should probably try my luck here too.  Would prefer the 05 over 06, but I'm willing to look at what's out there.  I know I am being picky.  There's one on CL in OR right now, but the price seems a bit high for the miles.

Thanks!

I assume Aero/Turbo?
Why the 05 over the 06? the 06 is a superior engine and transmission in every regard pretty much

Here's a nice one: http://portland.craigslist.org/clc/cto/5933625963.html

Thanks for the links!

I've thought about e-mailing about the first one, but the price seems a bit high for the miles.

Second one doesn't have the cold weather package, I did e-mail about that one as soon as it was posted.

Third seems to be deleted.

Fourth is a bit too modded for what I want, and once again no cold weather package.

I know that something will pop up eventually.  I've just gotta be patient.  And convince myself not to look at Baja Turbos....   big_smile

Good luck with the search. One will come along if you search long enough, stay up to date on the normal used car sites, and are willing to take a roadtrip for your car. I looked at two before deciding on buying mine in about 3 months of actively searching.

that's because its an 06 and exceedingly rare, and its a better engine/transmission than the 05 Aero anyways.
if you can get an 06 92x over an 05, always get the 06

good luck, you'd pay $15k+ for a turbo baja in 5spd, if you can even find one

You don't know Subarus then. the 06 Aero drivetrain is better (or the same) in every regard.
i can't think of anything that the EJ20 has that could be considered a benefit, other than i guess its less complex because no AVCS?

Yeah, you are right, I have no clue.
