Yes! Just about to buy one. Its such a small compact little beggar... just what you need to take those parking spots that the big guys can't get into!

Subaru Fiori; the most fun you can have with a little car. Mine has a full body kit, 2" pipe, pod filter. It sounds great and looks great. I will be buried in my Fiori.

See my previous comment - Have now sold the STI as it was never used since buying the Fiori, and to satisfy my performance side, I am about to purchase another (Fiori that is).

This time though it will be a cheap run-down, and unregistered vehicle to be built into a Kawasaki powered rocket!

These cars are very responsive for their size and power output. I currently own one, and have been considering putting on a quad motorcycle carburetor setup and screamer exhaust. Just advancing the timing a little and richening the mixture gives good increases in power output.

These cars are a surprising little package. I wish I could find a back seat for mine, as I have a child to carry and may need to get rid of it soon. This vehicle is priceless.

1991 Subaru Fiori M80 758cc SOHC 8v inline 4 from Australia and New Zealand

Summary:

The second car the fuel company's love to hate

Faults:

The previous owner didn't wash the battery support and it rusted through, but my brother is a panel beater so he replaced it for me.

When I bought the car the points were shot. So I replaced them and I have put a new fuel sender unit in too.

General Comments:

I have owned a Sherpa, which suffered from rust and she died.

But now I have my Fiori now and I love this little car. She uses 5 litres or less per hundred, she runs Castrol Magnatec 10w 30 and gets serviced every 5000 km. I can only get 104km/h out it and am going to put 13 inch by 165 by 80 on her to get even better fuel economy.

I am happy to know there is someone else out there who loves their Fiori. I have a set of 13" alloys, window tint, lowered and stiffer suspension package, (a combination of Holden Barina and Audi coil springs, after market exhaust, and CD/MP3 player with 4" speakers in the dash and 6x 9 three ways behind the seats. I have also re-trimmed he cargo area and door trims. It looks fantastic goes great and the fuel economy is superb. Oh by the way, I have hit 130km/h in mine, off road, of course.
