Anyway I'm number 91.
Ive got number 30

They have black prodrive headlights, prodrive spoiler, gold prodrive wheels, different (blue) seats, front splitter, white indicator/side markers and full prodrive pack. (Bit quicker than standard WRX)

Re: buying a UK300 (poss)

Was gonna say the Megane is probably considerably lighter but having just checked the specs it turns out to be a bit of a heffer itself at 1355 Kg. That said, Bug eyes are a lot heavier than classics (and early bugs the heaviest Impreza's of all believe it or not) so you are probably packing at least 50 kilos more than the Megane. That may go some way to explaining it, but as you say performance figures for the Megane are way off Impreza pace so . . .
