Howdy all,
I'm currently looking at a RB5 PPP, just looking for some advice really... anything in particular to keep an eye out for (common faults/known problem areas etc)?

Re: RB5

basicly the more service history the better, well maitained cars are pretty reliable if not modified much

Re: RB5

Have a look at this for general things to look out for on an Impreza;

Subaru Impreza - Buying Checklist

As for specifics, not familiar with the RB5 I'm afraid but haven't heard anything negative about them, as opposed to the P1 for example, so would say the checklist should just about cover it. Nice looking car though, and in one of my favourite colours for a classic. Late classic JDM STI's came in that colour and look awesome but are rare.

If there is anything I'm sure someone will pipe up.
