Bidding adeau (possible availabilty of my old car)

I'm writing to thank you all for your technical expertise and willingness to communicate with a (sometimes frustrated) fellow SVT owner. The time finally came to move on, and I've replaced my 2003 SVT with another vehicle. At 137k miles, things were starting to go wrong with it, and I needed something a bit more reliable.

If anyone has interest in the car, it was traded to Balise Subaru in Warwick, RI. I'm guessing that it'll go to the wholesale auction, but there's a chance they'll try to retail it. They can be reached at (401) 780-3490 or toll free at (888) 714-1642. The interior is nice, and it had a clutch installed at about 100k (I don't drive too hard and the original clutch lasted that long and a shifter not too long after that. It has every option (disc changer, moonroof, HIDs, cold weather package)except the EAP. After a minor fender-bender, the bumper, grille and headlamp covers were replaced (they looked fine, but the mounting tabs break pretty easily). You can look up my other posts if you want to see more about the history of the car.

If you have any specific questions, drop me a line and I'll try to answer 'em.

Regards,
Tom

2010 Honda Fit Sport with NAVI (they actually have a model distinction for the ones with navigation and stability contro). I'm a cyclist and bike mechanic, and wanted a hatchback with plenty of space in the back. I decided to get an automatic, so it would be easier for my wife to drive (she's had hip issues, so driving a manual is a bit challenging for her). It includes paddle shifters, but so far, I've only used them to downshift for turns.

Every year, I work as a volunteer mechanic for Braking the Cycle, a charity ride benefitting an AIDS/HIV charity, and I stow a ton of tools and spare parts in the car. The Focus did well space-wise, but the Fit should work out better. I will miss driving the SVT, but it was getting tired had been starting to have things go wrong with it.

Regards,
Tom

If anyone's interested, I'll probably be getting rid of mine here very shortly. I'm looking to trade for a 2008 VW Rabbit in Memphis. Mine is a 2004 with only 70,000
