mate has got one, looks like a turbo now though, but as a car there good, about 90bhp i think so not exactly up to turbo speed wise but hey tis a scoob.

would be a classic i should think, depending on how much you wanna spend. it would be a gl, the sport models were 2.0 awd non turbo's

I dont think the insurance would differ that much compared to a 1.6 and a 2.0 sport would it guys?? I've really no idea to be honest, but I would just get a few quotes on online Curtiz and see what the differences are..

Can always use the Auto Trader to find different prices on how much they are to buy etc...

On Auto Trader mate, they do a search for Insurance. Put your details in for when your 20/21 and see what results you get.

Do it for the 1.6 GL and the 2.0 Sport mate Lets us know

I've no idea to be honest mate, maybe trim level or something I'd guess...

Check out Parkers Guide mate as it will give you a run down of each and every model Subaru have done Differences included
