Hey guys!
I owned a 5th gen SiR for a while but unfortunately had to sell it, I'm now looking at a 3rd gen Si AT (B20A5) with only 140k kms (86k miles) - just wondering what to look out for and check on when buying an older lude :) Thanks!

I drive conservatively but:

clutch needed replacement c. 325K

connecting rod bearings wore out c. 425K

rear bumper needed to be wired up. Deterioration of mount.

A/C went out maybe 250K. Did not repair.

Otherwise, awesome car for me.

Make sure the timing belt has been replaced. I inherited mine with 130k miles from a very compulsive relative so I assumed the belt was replaced at 100K. Belt broke at 145K, bent 2 exhaust valves. I was able to repair this, hardest part was getting the crank shaft pulley bolt loose.
