22B

as we all drool over the 22b & how expensive they are, was just wondering how much these cars cost when they were new? has anyone ever driven one?

Yes I have heard good things about the Type25 mate but for me the 22 holds more appeal. Had a good look at one up close at Longleat - fooking lovely

So for me its the 22B everytime but its each to their own I guess

Just looked up prices for the 22B in Japan when launched, as follows:

22B STi Version (launched March 1998)- 4,200,000 Yen (22,105 at current exchange)
WRX STi Version 5 (launched September 1998)- 1,760,000 (9,263 at current exchange)

As can be seen, the 22B was a very expensive car when judged against the cost of a standard STi. :shock:
How much are they going for in the UK now :?:
probably as much as they cost in Japan new :shock:

Saw one at Stan Palmers in Carlisle in August, very nice indeed.

Would probably go for a Type 25 myself though

Cool.

one 22B was for sale on the UK Subaru Proven used car Web site about 6 months ago for 31k.
your looking at between 26-28k in the UK if you can find one.

Seen a few for around 25-26k.

Type 25 is a better car but the 22b is still the pinnacle of Impreza ownership as far as I'm concered....it's just such a rarity and is completely recognizable with those wide arches.

Time to go and see the bank manager for a loan!
