HI GUYS

those who no me will no i sold my R33 GTS-t earlier this year due to redundancy.

also had issuses with my trade insurance having a skyline on ...nobs

well i went back to my roots with a seat leon 1.8t 20v & that didnt work out was an awfull car so im back in a JAP although its not a skyline so if this ofends you dont read any further :)


1995 SUBARU IMPREZA WRX 260
pics are off the ebay advert aas i cant be pestered to take any at teh mo as its always raining











its had a full airbrush jap-art manga done & looks amazing up close


it drives ok & is pretty quick too , has had a fair few mods done too

large fmic & alloy pipes
larger turbo
samco coolant & ic boost hoses
grooved discs all round
3" turbo back stainless system
17" dare light weight alloys
toyo tr1s
lowered on srings & shox

it does have a few niggles like the front splitter has bee smasge off the bumper & center dash has been hacked up for a dvd tv unit but its going to be a weekend tinker project for me

ive had it a month now.





well i got round to doing some work on the car yesterday so i coould sort out some issuses etc

1st was to strip the front bumper off to rectify the damage from when the blended in splitter came off
i also removed the blue skirts & rear spats
ive flatted out all the filler & cut off all the ecess bond from the front bumper , got a new jun splitter on order for it & will be getting the horrid blue skirts etc repainted silver

i also managed to remove all the dash centre which had a gash dvd screen glued in . re fitted new ash tray & socket , cup holders & removed the jvc dvd & put my apline in

more to come

appleseed and ghost in the shell are both manga films.

i think the airbrushing on the doors is ok, maybe could do with more detail though.
im really not a fan of whats on the rest of the car. why would you want it to look like it has rust on it? and bullet holes?

but if you like it then dont take any notice of what i say

Wow, interesting paint! I'm unsure how I feel about it but mad props for being different. I like the silver fog covers alot better as well.

how do you find the running costs on the impreza compared to the Skyline?
Unfortunately due to needing a couple of extra doors I may need to change and was looking at one of these.
Would prefer to keept the skyline aswell in an ideal world.
