hi my mate has just brought an N reg impreza looks like sti engine and interior, but on the log book it's down as a 2.0 gl imported in 2005. The guy he brought it off said that dvla mucked up when it was registered over here. is there anyway of finding out if it's wrx, sti or a gl with turbo engine?

Have a look at the VIN number.

Re: help

Wouldnt worry too much, this seems to happen a lot with imports into the UK. As Pete says, check VIN and i suspect it will turn out out be a WRX.
