Buying Advice Needed Please

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to buy an impreza in the upcoming months but always like to do my research before buying.

I am a convert from a Mercedes to a MR2 Turbo to a Impreza hopefully! The Toyota was good but not quick enough and not practical for my soon to be family needs.

I have seen the Buying Checlist but has anyone got a link to where I can see the differences in models? I will have about 4k - 5k to spend at the most so am looking for a 93 model ish I think. If it comes with mods then great otherwise I will want to hold on to about 1000 to at least do a few mods.

Any help appriciated.

Thanks,

Thanks for the warm welcome

I have come to the conclusion that I should be looking for a WRX or a WRX STI, still not sure of the difference though.

I am probably going to go for an import as I know these will have the extra gadgets that I'm after.

Apart from the usual checks on imports are there any specific areas that would or might stand out to show that the car has been abused? I know that owning a car like this it is going to get thrashed but I would prefer to buy a car from someone that knows how to thrash it without crossing the line into clearly abusing the car and not maintaining it.

Any help?

Thanks,
