Happy with the car. Had MOT done and passed no problems. Now for the dvla application. Had a quick drive on a friends traders plates, feels amazing to be back in a Subaru after over ten years since selling my Spec C Limited. Was like putting on an old familiar glove, but with a new fluffy lining;).
A big part of the reason for buying this particular car was the service history that came with it.
Registered November 2007..
serviced..
End of 2007 1,108 km
2008 2,918
2008 again.. 5,107
2009 7,792
2010 14,332
2011 23,790
2012 33,033
2013 49,093
2014 53,810
2015 63,160

All first owner, Subaru garages Tokyo.

2018, Second owner, just south in Yokohama.

2018 90,126 km inc. oil, filter, coolant, brake fluid, wiper blades, battery, a/c filter, air filter?(described as air cleaner?), and MTF....(gear oil).
2019 100,429km full steering rack replacement due to oil leak.
2020 (looking at dates on tyre manufacture) x4 Continental extreme contact dws sports plus.
Then of course the world stood still.

Car now has approx 112,500km (70,000miles).
For me...
112,500km Timing belt kit, water pump, oil and filter. Maybe plugs and just get fluids checked.

The only items that seem to be missing are the centre console roller lid covering the cup holders, and the rear parcel shelf.

Lovely car with great history Andrew @apac
The centre console roller seems to be a bit of a thing. Mine was missing too but they are cheap on Jap auctions

Anyone have any idea what the wheels might be? All I know is they are aftermarket jobbies. They have strength tested markings on them (for what that promises I'm not totally sure) but nothing else on them that names them. They are 18's but not the BBS option Wheel.

Not sure what wheels they are but if your after a set of original wheels then I’m sure @headgecutter has a set for sale :thumb
