06-08 Forester XT Sport 5spd only - Found one!

I'm looking for a 06-08 xt sport not a limited but a sport. Would prefer a 08 cause of the headlights and tail lights. I would like to find one with low miles no higher than 140k. I have no problem with tasteful mods but nothing too crazy. I'm unicorn would be an Aspen white but honestly I'm at the point where color doesn't really matter. I'm located in San Jose CA, I am willing to travel anywhere in CA. For the right car I might even go to neighboring states. My budget is up to 16k for the right car. So if any of you are wanting to sell or happen to come across one please let me know I would really appreciate it. Thank you

Just some references

You DO know that the sport is just a bumper swap, right? Limited gets you more features, and then just buy a bumper (essentially) and get it painted.

Actually its not the limited has foglights. The sport has blacked housings on the headlights and tail lights and no leather seats. And other little things here and there.

@untamed408sj if you want blacked out headlights, then you want a '08 Sports. It also came with blacked out tail lights. Those features can be added to other years... '06 & '07, but the parts are on the spendy side, especially if you go with new factory/OEM parts!

I'm sure you've looked here on cars101.com to see what is on the XT Limited, but is deleted on the Sports XT.

delete heated windshield wiper de-icer
delete roof rack cross bars (they're an option)
My '07 FSXT was the first release of the Sports XT & it came with seat heaters & roof rack cross bars that it wasn't suppose to have.

Yeah I know thats why I said I prefer the 08. Doing the swap would be no problem just doing the lights but for the right price and as long as its a sport.

Thats why I said I prefer an 08. Doing the lights swap on a sport 06-07 is way cheaper than doing a limited to sport swap.

I could be talked in to selling mine for the right price, although I'm in St. Louis.

@Jim with a J I would really be interested but I dont have the time at the moment to fly out there and drive back. Thats why I'm looking for something in or near California.

Make it $40k and I might sell mine! haha. Didnt know the aspen white was so rare when mine came up for $4000...

My suggestion is this, find an 06 XT Limited, as it will be a cheaper option anyways, Buy a sports bumper, retrofit your headlights (best choice ever!), and then swap tail lights.
