Impreza meet and Wangan run.

Yet another vid for ya.

This one is a bit rushed as had so much footage to go through to make a vid from. Anyway, another Impreza meet and if anything more cars at this one than the last one. Then went for a run through the centre of Tokyo. Enjoy!

Knew that would be the first comment.

Got a worn wiper linkage that I thought wasn't too bad until last night. Was raining really hard before we started filming so wipers were on full. As a result the N/S wiper decided to let go and move half was up the ruddy screen. Couldn't be assed getting the socket set out. Still worked though but will have to get it sorted properly now.

Looked like another great meet, shame about the weather. The night footage in the centre of Tokyo looked great. Was that a silver NSX that passed you?

Thanks for posting mate.

More than welcome Pete and thanks for the comments.

Was an NSX, and it looked and sounded absolutely fantastic. Very rare even on Japanese roads so was lucky to see one. Would absolutely love one but could just never afford one.

There is also a GT-R in the vid if you look closely, and both the NSX and GT-R were baiting me for a play. Was having none of it as not my thing really, and I would have had my pesterior handed to me on both counts I am sure.

Certainly was. Only the 2nd one I have seen on the road (as it were) in 3 years. Best car there by a mile. Yes, even better than mine.

Re: Impreza meet and Wangan run.

Pretty certain they came in Blue too Darren. I'll check my brochure when I get home, but yellow and white definitely seem to be the more popular choices fot the Type RA-R. Gotta be yellow for me though, with the white wheels and the same low level carbon spoiler as the car in the video.
