2008 Subaru Legacy GT Spec.B
How many of you have ever heard of the Legacy Spec.B? Not many. How many of you have ever SEEN a Spec.B? Even fewer. Well here is your chance to own one!
I was told that only 100 purchase orders were placed for Spec.B's in 2008 and another 100 in 2009. After that, Subaru no longer offered the model. The Spec.B is commonly referred to as a "luxury STi" and for good reason. It comes with the same bullet proof 6 speed transmission found in the STi. However, the SpecB has a taller 6th gear for better gas mileage. It also has some other cool additions that no other Legacy models have such as aluminum suspension parts for weight saving and better handling and Bilstein struts made in Germany. They even have a picture of the famous Nurburgring on each strut! The best part (to me) is the interior as it comes with black leather with Alcantara, which is a suede-like material. The seats are not only power, but heated also. It comes stock with navigation as well.
This is a 2008 Subaru Legacy GT Spec.B with about 59,000 miles. The car was purchased brand new from the dealer in October 2009 (yes, you read that right) and the owner was sent out to serve in the military overseas shortly after. I bought the car with 7k miles on it and have daily driven it 65 miles each day since then. The car comes stock with 245 hp and is currently flashed stage 2 which makes about 280 hp. With a tune it will make over 300 hp. I can have the car tuned by a reputable tuner/shop if the buyer would like.
Keep in mind, the car is adult owned and has not been abused or raced in any sort of way. It's my commuter car since I average 28 mpg per tank of gas which is amazing for a car pushing close to 300 hp. The car is extremely reliable and I continue to commute daily in it. It's an absolute dream to drive.
The car has a 100,000 mile Subaru extended warranty!

Since no one in their right mind would realistically expect to get retail price of aftermarket parts back, I cut the total cost in half to give you a better idea of what these parts might go for used.
I have most of the stock parts such as downpipe, catback, Bilstein struts with Spec.B springs, and one swaybar. I can put the stock parts back on if buyer prefers. Please don't ask if I'm parting out the car, I'm not. The car has some light dings on the roof from a hail storm and a mystery door ding that happened a week ago. Oil is changed every 3k with 5w30 Castrol Syntec. All brake pads and rotors were swapped out about 4k miles ago with Centric rotors and Stoptech pads.
Also comes with factory navigation, 6 cd changer, heated seats, power seats, full rear pass through seats and SI-drive.
I don't need to sell the car, and honestly I don't really want to, but I'm saving to buy a house and am thinking about getting an SUV as my wife and I plan to start a family. So, instead of racking the miles on such a rare, sporty car, I'd rather put the miles on something not so awesome, like an SUV.
Kelly Blue Book values the car at $24,000 without any of the upgrades.

*The Alcantara is actually black but looks gray in photographs for some reason.
I'd consider trading for a newer Grand Cherokee.

Don't get rid of it!!! I have seen 2 due to the influx of Chinese students here at Ohio U. They are gone now and it was funny to watch them race the 2 GTRs here. There was a 3rd but the girl put it into a rail.

If a serious buyer shows interest in the car, they can pick and choose from the list above what they'd like to keep and what they'd like me to remove, which would lower the asking price of the vehicle.
Think of it as an a la carte menu. For $24,500 you get the full 6 course meal. If you're allergic to broccoli, take that off for a discount of $100. Don't like the baked potato that comes with the steak? Take it off for a discount of $1,000. All the prices are listed above for that reason.
So, if you just want the steak and no extra sides, you can have it for a much lower price. Likely in the $20k range. Everything is a simple bolt on, so I can remove any parts you'd like. I have 95% of the stock parts.
