Courtesy car fun !

Had my Bug eye STi in for its service today at the dealership and they gave me a 97 plate impreza sport for the day !

what a smile it brought to my face

it took me back to my first ever experience of scoobies ( my first company car back in 96 ) and I couldn't get enough of it !

thrashing one of those around every once in a while is a pure treat, who cares about the shoddy interior and lack of turbo !

the pointless brightness button!!, the hill brake!!, the indicators on the opposite side!!, the dodgy stereo and high / lo ratio lever !!...ah the memories !! :clap:

makes me think of parking the Sti up for the weekends and getting an old sport for the thrash to work... extreme scooby pleasure !!!

You have to see the bug eyes in person to get the full effect of their beauty
(especially when coved with mud)

Although that may be because of a personal opinion
