Thats a Steal.................... At that price you could sell it to a dealer for more....

Dealers are selling them for 18,500 to 20,000

Exactly what my dealer said, they've had 3 in the last week with engine mods & decats that have needed engine re-builds :shock: Can't be cheap :cry:

imho if you mod it at all get a remap, i cant understand why people muck about with them they are plenty fast enough.. all i have is a jetex pannel filter boost gauge and afr meter, it still beats most things on the road, if i had known all this before i got mine i would not have brought it ops: but once you get one it is awsome as it says in the mags the ultimate impreza, good luck :wink:

Well that's got me thinking. Slight bias here have got an RB5 20K on the clock, fully stamped up service manual (ouch).Couldn't afford a P1 at the time. I like the fact that the RB is onlly 444 (probably less now) i like the quickshift, the mid range shove & the classic looks.But (traitor) the P1 2dr sonic blue, those OZ alloys, Peter Stevens rear spoiler with the carbon gurney flap, titanium badges & 276 bhp of course! Yeah would probably go down the P1 route.Where did you say they are for sale? No what am i thinking, she'll go mental!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shock:

ok, 18 votes for the P1, none for the RB5 :shock:
After all that, I've decided to stick with the RB5 for the time being, stood comparing the two together the other day..... I just couldn't sell it at the moment, not even for a P1 :cry:

Wise choice M8. I had the P1 and felt sick as a pig after a few months wishing I had my old MY98 back. My MY98 would see off the P1 anyday. MY98 was 283 BHP and much more torque than the P1. P1 was Standard but still blow up.
