Litchfield Subaru Forester STI

Hi all, Sadly it is time Goodbye to my Litchfield Forester after owning her for over 13 years,  she was used to drive up and down the motorway to various sites in the north I had to visit to interview for 5 years, so much of the very LOW 40,280 miles are motorway miles.   She has been stored in a dry insulated unit from end of 2013- may this year (the land is now sold for planning so we have to clear).    Now fully recommissioned mostly by Brian at Cams performance Subaru specialist in Darwin, she sailed straight through the MOT needing nothing at all (no advisories), although I have had all the Discs/Pads & handbrake shoes replaced since to ensure she is tip top, bills for over £2,300.   Her condition I believe is exceptional for the year & the interior apart from some small scratches around the heater knobs area is almost as new (protection sticker still on the radio & rear seat adjusters etc).  There are some small scratches around the wheel nut holes (thanks mr ATS) but no kerb damage at all, continental Conti sport 5 tyres with 5 mm on the front/6 mm on the rear & there are as you would expect some inevitable stone chips but no scratches or dents visible on her as she has been doted over……the boot area is immaculate as we Immediately purchased a Subaru Forester floor protector and on top of that hey Hatchbag boot protector was placed so underneath it’s like new, the spare has never been on the vehicle as far as I am aware, certainly still looks like new.

 

As she is a Lichfield we purchased her in 2008 direct from Iain Litchfield with just 7,500 miles on her, we chose her & he imported her for us, she already had STI strut braces front/rear, STI turbo boost gauge & control box & 18” Prodrive anodised wheels.    Then Iian added AST fully adjustable suspension & his performance pack 330bhp/330lb/ft torque comprising of a MILLTEK exhaust, K&N panel filter & bespoke remap, she is very quick with the power coming in lower, stronger & sounds amazing.   A Cobra alarm was fitted with certificate.

 

Full service history (whilst in use), Two owners, my business first and then me at the same address, all manuals, service history, original sales receipt & 2 keys present ……..Drives without fault hence the price.

 

Price £16,500

Hello Steven. Thank you for your brilliant post. I have just recently come across this. I was interested in getting this amazing car but It seems it has since gone to a dealer in York and is now being advertised for sale for £19,985. 
 

I have a number of questions that arise out of this situation but the main ones are these:

why did you want to sell this car in the first place?

do you think it is worth £19,985 ?

I am tempted but I wanted your honest opinion before making a decision.

thank you 

Tolga
