Question SUBARU IMPREZA TURBO WRX TYPE-RA

Hello guys, jut a quick question for you. I'm looking at an impreza wrx tpre ra at the moment. Now the car is from a garage along the road from me. Just want to know what you guys think and if you can advise me on anything. Only thing is I would say it is well over priced but if I get a full years ticket and some warranty would that make up for it? Here's the link, any comments will be much appreciated, cheers.
Chris.

Not sure why it's not working, It's on 'Brian Downie' website, second page. White up for 6000.

Dont jump in. There are lots about. It looks tidy but give it good check over for usual things.

Personally i would see about getting the sti ra as better car. They are still in the same price range

No it's not. No roof vent. Judging by the ad it's a GC8D WRX Type RA.

Bhp is the same but STi has more torque, 35.0 Kgm Vs 33.5 Kgm. Remember though, the STi has a different ECU map, a few forged engine internals, better rakes and suspension etc. It's gonna be a quicker car because it is better built to handle the power.
