What model?

Hi All,

Just joined the forum, I am thinking about buying a scooby wagon but unsure which one to go for, Either a uk model or wrx, What is the difference between them? I had insurance quote for a uk model but not yet had a quote for an import. I have heard an import will be allot more to insure? Cheapest quote i had was 640 from greenlight. I am 27 with 2 years ncd.

I am only looking to spend around 2k so it will be a 97 turbo 2000 awd 5dr.

Any help would be apriciated.

Si

Re: What model?

Hi mate,

The insurance on a WRX will be more as it is an Import. Differences between UK and Import will also depend on year. One thing I can say is that the gearbox ratios are longer on a UK car (WRX is somewhere between a UK car and an RA. This will affect Mpg, acceleration and top end) and I'm fairly certain that the WRX will have more power, a lot more depending on year. Later WRX's have 280 Bhp.

Tbh, I'm not familiar with UK cars but will be happy to answer any questions you have about JDM models. Shop around for insurance though and try a search on here for insurance companies as there are some good recommendations by members.
