IIRC correctly a parallel import will be a EU-spec car rather than a "grey" import which would be a JDM spec.

In theory an EU-specced car should be very similar in spec to a UK vehicle.

UK spec car destined for the UK market but imported. There will be no manufacture warrenty IIRC. They way to tell a parrallel import is on the dash. The speedo and rev counter are a different way round to UK cars.

Also dont think it makes any different to insurence

Thats a good price... And if Warrenty is an issue CVC will always give 12 months warrenty on the car anyhow... After that you could get independant warrenty if subaru dont do it??

Just a thought....
