Who Has Owned A Subaru?

Recommended Posts

hi all,

just wondering who on here has or does own a subaru impreza? I had a look at one the other day and compared to UK prices they are a lot cheaper, just wondering about the reliability/quality etc and how easy to tune? I would be looking at a 2004 - 2006 model maybe the sti version because of those I have seen the trim is far better.

Great cars Rob. Go for the Sti 6 speed model - the engines and transmissions are a lot tougher than the other models and are easy to tune.

Not entirely sure Rob, think there had been a few so I cant remember, think its pushing around the 370 bhp mark. I'll ask him.

There are tons of parts available to suit all budgets/needs. The normal tuning route is exhaust, induction, exhaust manifold, boost up, ecu, FMIC, turbo, fuelling, then engine internals etc.

The standard engine is considerably better than previous incarnations but it's not bomb proof.

Agreed, a 4wd must be great fun and a lot of sense where you are.
