I'm now looking....!!!!!

It's been over a year now I posted on here that I was in a dilemma about wether to get an Impreza or an A3 3.2 Q DSG. I did chose the A3 in the end as I travel overseas every year to Serbia and my A3 has never missed a beat once.

However my heart is still ruling me and everytime I see a scooby or hear one it makes me smile....so now I'm actually looking for the right one and ready to make the move....

Knew you'd be back.

Good luck with the search. Take your time and make sure you get a good 'un.

Re: I'm now looking....!!!!!

haha...Cant'help it.....I knew it would happen sooner or later...As soon as i hear or see one i'm aching to be in one...I'll have 12k to get one so i think i'll be able to get a good un....

The garage where I bought my Audi from is selling an X-reg P1 45k miles. Service history by Subaru 320 bhp remap...Immaculate...3 door 11995

Is that about right or over priced for one of these...???

But then I'm thinking why would I buy a nearly 10yr old car when 12k can buy me an 06/07 plate impreza....???

sounds a good price for the spec

same price may well buy you a newer model,but........it surely won't be a classic or a P1.....i'd go for it imho

exactly....just hope I don't end up buying a money pit....Since owning my Audi it's never missed a beat....Hopefully the Impreza won't either.....

provided it's fully documented and a fastidious owner,there shouldn't be any worries what so ever..

It was part ex'ed for an RB320 the guy had for sale...It's been well looked after and the remap was done by a subaru specialist up in Scotland..

but it'll most likely be sold before i get the money for it...

If you can get the P1 then I agree with Ed and say go for it assuming everything checks out on the car. If it goes then for that money you could get a mint low mileage V6 STi or STi RA and still have cash spare for some modding. P1 is a special car no doubt, but more special than a JDM STi?

Comments taken on board BUT this will be an everyday car for me so is it best to look for an sti or a wrx if that P1 sells before I get chance to buy it....

Standard Classic or Newage Impreza WRX/ STi are both very good every day cars.

As Ed said ...
