WRX Needed for TV Appearance

Hi all,

I'm part of the production team for Wheeler Dealers. As part of the new series we're featuring a 2001 WRX. For those of you not aware Wheeler Dealers is a program where we buy iconic cars, fix their faults and then sell them on for a profit.

At the beggining of the episode we always film a 'pristine version' of the featured vehicle. This is to show the viewer how good the vehicle can look and what we're trying to achieve by the end of the program.

As such we need a standard, unmodified WRX to film that is in good condition (possibly having undergone a resto). If you have such a car and want to have it featured on TV, please PM with your availability over the next three weeks. We would only require you for half a day and would supply a DVD of the finished program after its aired as a memento.

Look forward to hearing from you.

As matt above says theyre all pretty much modified now even the ones with std wheels generally will have been lowered and have exhaust and a few other bits.

Though dont think you`ll have any bother finding good condition ones,dont think ive ever seen a rough bugeye.

Dont mind the programme but would prefer it without mike brewer-He does my head in an actually sometimes shows how little he knows about cars-Edd`s sound though.

Update: WRX Needed for TV Appearance

Hi all,

Sorry, I made a mistake in my last post.

I'm part of the production team for Wheeler Dealers. As part of the new series we're featuring a 2001 WRX Turbo. For those of you not aware Wheeler Dealers is a program where we buy iconic cars, fix their faults and then sell them on for a profit.

At the beggining of the episode we always film a 'pristine version' of the featured vehicle. This is to show the viewer how good the vehicle can look and what we're trying to achieve by the end of the program.

As such we need a WRX to film that has a standard, unmodified body / exterior in good condition (possibly having undergone a resto). If you have such a car and want to have it featured on TV, please PM with your availability over the next three weeks. We would only require you for half a day and would supply a DVD of the finished program after its aired as a memento.

Look forward to hearing from you.
