FS: Coolest Forester in Omaha 1998 with WRX swap

Time has come for me to sell my swapped forester.

Mechanical

Swap was performed at the start of 2014

Perrin silicone intercooler hoses
Replaced valve cover gaskets
Re booted front CV shafts
New break pads and rotors (within the last year)

Interior

Pioneer DEH-X6600BT Bluetooth stereo
Infinity Kappa front door speakers
Infinity Reference rear door speakers
Audio Mobile 10in sub
Rockford Fosgate R500X1D amplifier
Avital keyless entry
Dual Cup holders, and nicer sun visors out of newer Forester S
Reupholstered center armrest
Heated front seats

Exterior

JDM SF5 Grille
JDM SF5 pink grille "F" badge
JDM SF5 front turn signals
JDM SF5 rear tail light garnish panel (1 of 2 known in the USA)
98 Impreza front bumper
New Impreza clear turn signals
Password JDM bumper quick release
15% window tint
Fiberglass fender flares
Katana 17x9.5 et12 custom powder coated wheels
BF Goodrich 275/40/17 tires
Wheels and tires are about a month old

Good

AC and heat both work great
Car was tuned with Cobb Accessport "stage 2 " tune
Windshield recently replaced
Drives like it came from the factory, not like a project, or swapped vehicle
Be the envy of your friends
Mechanically the car is an 02 WRX wagon meaning it can be tuned and modified as such so parts availability is excellent.

Bad
Minor dents and dings due to age
One bad paint spot on rear hatch, 90% covered by trim panel however.
Cruise control installed but cable needs to be run to throttle body.

Asking $8000 reasonable offers will be considered. No trades please. Located in Omaha. Any questions, ask away, as I was the builder of this car.

Thanks!

Having driven it, it's a very clean swap.  Feels very natural and is quite peppy as well.  GLWS!
