1993 Subaru Impreza WRX 240ps 2.0 16v Turbocharge from UK and Ireland
True sports car
First day I purchased the car I took the batter off to reset the ECU, when I connected it the rev counter didn't work, no dash lights were working and car wasn't charging, was down to a split in the circuit bored behind the clocks, a column fault, was easily fixed.
Needed a new battery, old one had a dead cell £36 for a new battery.
Top radiator pipe split, another column fault, £10 to fix.
This car is amazing, once you drive one, you WILL want one.
When I bought the car it was 100% standard, since then I have added a 3" de-cat down pipe and de-cat system with 4" back box, the car now has that lovly flat4 noise.
I've fitted a Baileys twin piston dump valve to pro-long the turbo.
Its stupid how quick these cars accelerate, so far I've had 130mph on private track, still had more poke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own a 94 import subaru and it does not compare to other true sports cars I have driven, i. e Mitsubishi GTO which I have owned and an EVO and both have walked all over the scooby. Petrol on my scooby was outrageous, I used to have a Esso petrol tanker on call as I was never sure if I would make it anywhere. Basically, poor layout inside, cheap plastic and light panels all over. Not very good for passengers. WOuld not recommend to anyone who wants a car that is practical.

GTOs are like fake Ferraris, and Evos are over rated. I have a 93 rally spec 555 Subaru and its power is out of this world, sounds awesome, and goes great. Anyone buying one of these cars shouldn't complain about fuel costs, as it is inevitable that more hp means more fuel consumption. if you worried about fuel, buy a Toyota Corolla or Honda Civic.
