Back After a break from the scene

Back on the scene after a break ,missus lost her job , then we both got real stressed out ,sold the scoob then regretted it . Ive been off work for a while ill ,getting better now !!!

As several "friends" in the trade have informed me the cost of a decent import car is between 1k and 1,500 , one of my neighbours just picked up ,albeit standard a L reg wrx saloon for 800 ,honestly a bit scruufy and dirty and bog standard (15" wheels) low level spolier , 400 worth of paint ,to cover the odd scuff ,a good valet by yours truly ,new wheels and branded tyres ,from good old ebay and away we go , hope fully i`ll pic up an early wagon possibly and STI 2/3 ..................oh i feel the bank balance wilting already !!!

i think the best deals out there are for the older STI imports, espeically the wagons.

Cheers mate. The Spec C sort of came to me by accident 'so to speak'. My UK classic took a big bump from another road user,,, and the insurance came good.

A version 2 or 3 STI will have all the hardiness and performance that only the Japanese models have. Good luck with the search, there's plenty out there, and it's definately a buyers market. If it was me i would try and make sure that the car was mapped for UK fuel as soon as it arrived in the country. There are a lot of haggered engines out there.
