Vehicle description

Up for sale is my 2006 Steel Gray Metallic Subaru Forester Limited with 5 speed manual transmission. 5 Speed Foresters are pretty rare and it"s a blast to drive! I am the second owner, bought from the original owner with 82,xxx miles on it. It currently has 130,xxx miles on it and that won"t change much as I am not driving it too often. The current registration is expired since I haven"t driven it much (June 2020) but will make sure by the time the car is sold emissions are done and has a current 1 year registration. Description will be a bit long winded just want to make sure I got all the details.
The original owner had the car serviced almost exclusively at the Subaru dealer (based on CarFax when I bought it) and I have done the maintenance since then. Since in my possession the car has always had either AMSOil or Mobil 1 oil changes every 3-5k miles.
Maintenance performed by me:
Timing belt, tensioners, water pump @ 112,000
Clutch and Flywheel @ 112,000
Rear wheel bearings @ 118,000
AMSOil Transmission and Diff oil change @ 129,000
AMSOil 10w40 @ 129,000

Front subframe spacer delete - So with a Forester since they had a higher ride height from the factory than both the WRX and STI even though they are based on the same chassis, Subaru installed about 1" spacers in between the front subframe and the chassis. When you lower the Forester past a certain amount (about an inch inch and a half) the front suspension geometry becomes inverted negatively affecting your handling. By removing these spacers it brings the geometry back to what it would be in a WRX/STI making the handling much better and predictable. To do this you must use: WRX driveshaft, WRX shifter assembly, STI steering joint and WRX subframe mounting bolts.
On the the bad:
This car was my daily driver for about 4 years therefore it is not flawless, it has a few door dings here and there, but worst of all is the front bumper cover. About 2 years ago someone pulled out in front of me from a parking lot, luckily it was very slow speed and no major damage was done however it cracked the bumper cover on the passenger side because of the timing if it and her insurance company not cooperating I never ended up getting it fixed and just stitched it with zip ties. Other than that its clean for a 13 year old car! Title in hand, test drives are welcome, mask required. More pics coming tonight!
Buyer responsible for all shipping if needed. I will help where needed. Sold as is, no warranty expressed or implied. I have done my best to describe the car as best as possible. Has the typical Subaru 5 speed noise on deceleration once they get a few miles on them. Nothing wrong and won"t get worse just roller bearings a little noisy on deceleration.
