    Hello all...

    Long time Impreza fanboy, but never managed to get myself into one!

    My old man imported N374 PYJ in 2003/04 and later sold that on to my cousin.

    He later had the itch for another so purchased W746 RNF in 2007

    Please excuse the picture quality I took them on a very old phone way back when.

    For around 2 years 2006 - 2008 aged 16 to 18, I was hooked! As you can imagine, at 18 it wasn’t possible to get into either of these cars, so I was constantly a passenger.

    I spent many occasions out with the “SussexScoobies” crew around that time, with many photos from the events around that era and I’ve got footage from a rolling road event at Surrey rolling road...

    Anyway, long story made a little shorter.... this time next year, I’ll be selling up my 172 track car to make some space in the lock up for the car I’ve always wanted in the garage! Hopefully a classic shape type R!

    I’ll be scouring the forum for hints and tips and updating myself on the specs etc. But I’ll be around for a while.

    You may know 20vKarlos or 16vKarlos (ME) from many forums, the main ones being DetailingWorld, ClioSport, Instagram and there are a few others.

    All the best

    Thanks @type-ra ...I somehow managed to upload this thread before I’d finished it, but I’m in no rush.

    I’ve waited years to get into a classic Impreza and with prices going the way they have been over the past 5 years, I may need to wait a few more, however, I’ve got the space in the Garage, so if one comes along in the right condition, I’ll seriously consider it

    Thanks

    Thanks mate :thumb

    I frequent on JDM Watch but over the past few years, from what I’ve seen, importing a decent car has gone ridiculously expensive.
    I said to my wife, if I don’t manage to find a decent car here, I will learn the basics of the language and go to Japan myself :giggle:

    Thanks Pete :thumb
