Forum rules



New topics may need authorising before they are seen on the forum this will be done asap by the MPSOC team.

Once a new topic is posted it will be locked and buyers should contact the seller by PM. ANY post made before the topic is locked will be deleted so please ensure you only send PM to seller with your intention to buy

Items offered for sale must be yours, no links to other people’s stuff on other forums or 'listing on behalf of a mate' etc.

Please post a full ad using the standard format below with a description of the item for sale.

If this format is not used then the thread will be deleted.

The ad must state a price that you'd be happy to accept for the item. A price with 'or offers' or something similar is fine, just asking for offers is not.

A picture must be included at the SAME TIME as placing the advert or it will be deleted.

Please state whether you are prepared to post or deliver the item, and whether the cost of delivery is included in the asking price. If it is a large item for collection only, then please state your location.

No eBay links - we have a section for items on ebay please use this.

No 'gauging interest' threads - the item is either for sale or it is not.

Once sold please PM a member of the MPSOC team to have the topic moved to the sold section, however all 'for sale' threads will be moved after 3 months (from original posting date) to the sold section so it is up to the seller to re-advertise if required.

Lastly, please be cautious when purchasing items for sale advertised here or anywhere else. The use of this forum to advertise items for sale does not give or imply any guarantee by the forum, its administrators or moderators, as to the trustworthiness of the seller or the suitability of the item for its intended use. The forum is only a medium for advertisement; the forum, its administrators and moderators accept no liability for any loss or damage arising from the advertisement of an item for sale or any subsequent transaction.

Unfortunately, it's time to say goodbye to the 3.

I've got an opportunity to buy a Forester STi (I've wanted one for the last 10 years or so!) and I can't afford to keep both.

I'll get some photo's up a bit later on, but the facts are:

True Red Mk1
73k but this will go up a bit as i'm still using it
Full service history, part Mazda dealer and part local Mazda Specialist (Mazcare in Wolverhampton)
Timing chain changed in Nov '17 at 67k
No mods other than a K&N panel filter
4 new Goodyear Eagle F1's (fitted on Monday, currently about 50 mles on them)
Spare grille, I had planned to take the old one out to chop out the plastic and put some mesh in but never got around to it.
It's being serviced by Mazcare on 02/08/18, they will do a full inspection at the same time so i'll include this in the full listing.

Bad bits
Alloy wheel paint is flaking, could do with a refurb
a few chips on the bonnet and couple of car park dings as you'd expect from a car thats 10 years old.
broken fog-light lense - I am planning on getting this fixed before selling but could leave it and drop the sale price a bit.

I'm looking for £3750. Based in the West Midlands, I'm happy to take you out for a test drive but I can't let you drive unless you can show me some insurance and I have the money in my hand.

I'd much prefer to sell it to someone on here who'll appreciate it, but i'll be sticking it on eBay and the autotrader in the next couple of weeks if not.


you could buy a car for that!
MK1 aero, true red, no mods yet
Honda CBR600f
Yeti Sb66c
Nukeproof Pulse
