2000 Subaru Impreza GT Turbo 2.0 turbo
Great fun to drive
Air flow meter broke down at 30000 km
Engine blew at 60000 km.
Until 2006 Prodrive kit fitted: 240 HP / 350Nm.
Later ECUtek tuning: 275 HP / 380 Nm.
AP-Racing brakes, adjustable suspension, nylon bushes, big anti roll bar fitted.
It handles like a go-kart and out-accelerates (up to 200 km/h) about anything on the road.
In the mean time it's just for fun, got a WRX for business trips, since the GT Turbo is so stiff the whole car rattles and shakes when driving over a coin lost on the road.
Even performing well on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife.
Big drawback: fuel consumption: 20 - 25 liters / 100 km!!
However, this car is a man's perfect toy!
The new series WRX, STI... after 2000 is not the same anymore. Too heavy, too much comfort accessories (who needs an air con or stereo in such a car?)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
