Hi, some info required please

Hi everyone just joined and am after a bit of info and helpwould be much appreciated.

I currently drive a bmw and now have the scooby bug, there are 2 cars Im going to look at. 1 is a 96 wrx import its got 65k on it and still restricted, clocks are still in kph and has the td05 bigger turbo.

the other is a 97 wrx import and got bout 75k on.

is there any difference between the years, what sort of power will theybe putting out, and is it expensive to get them restricted. anyhelp would be greatfully appreciated. cheers lee

Re: Hi, some info required please

its not a mega job to get them derestricted. tbh i'd pick the tidier one or the one with the best history.

if i was buying a car i'd always have all the belts (including cambelt) and all the fluids replaced and a full check over anyway

Re: Hi, some info required please

what does getting them de restricted achieve, more power or quicker accelaration? Is the 9 model less power than the 97 model , cheers
