I hope you didn't pay a penny over $1100, cause that's how much they are worth.

Uh, try that I needed something to haul **** around in while still being able to enjoy it.

And since when did a wrx or forester get good gas mileage?

snowboarder - you didn't buy the Torsen because I drifted it a couple times? Looks like somebody doesn't know **** about diffs.

hondaman - I suppose their actual "worth" isn't a penny over $1100, but a car is only worth what somebody will pay for it, and thankfully fanboi's wouldn't mind getting *** raped for a true GTS.

I paid $2500, but that got me a full 8pt roll cage, extra set of 15x7 work equip 01's, rebuilt engine [with all the paperwork], 2 schroth racing harnesses, a trd harness, nardi wheel with nrg quick release, an extra toms steering wheel, 8/6 trd springs, agx shocks, jblood sideskirts + front bumper, buddy club spec 2 exhaust, some "kouki" lights, cf trunk lid, and some other ****.

I could sell the car for $2500 on its own to some dumbass trying to be like Tak. I plan on selling all that extra gay **** for about $1000. So let's just look at this as an investment. =/

I just don't understand what the fuss is about, I don't think this is a better choice than the Miata in any way. I just needed a small, light weight five seater that was good on gas and still fun to drive. ******* shoot me if the PO riced it out.

I like the Ae86, there fun cars. I prefer the hatch over the coupe.

Its a nice car and are fun to drive. My buddy wrecked his Ae86 but he had the 4a-gze swap done (stock supercharge motor from a 1gen MR2). They are a blast, it sucks that the prices went thru the roof lately.

I hate the color, but the rest of the car looks nice. I like that bumper it looks better on the levin style over the treuno.

He didn't buy it because you were asking a premium price for a diff that had been abused. Watch whose toes you're stepping on, here.
