Tesco won't insure you on a turbo until your 23 mate, but will only tell you that on the phone :cry:

try the tesco route im 25 and drive a 2004 wrx for 1300 per year... have been driving the impreza (turbo) for 2ish years (not long enough to appreciate the car)

The impreza sport is a grand entry point into the world of impreza ownership at 115ps it goes well... all the same fittings for exterior (front bonnet, wings, skirts etc) so easy to modify

Good luck and keep us informed.

Lol, they look the same but without the bonnet scoop!!!
The WRX Sti is a serious bit of kit mate. To quote Japanes Performance magazine "its a car that is genuinely quite close to Subarus rally rocket."

250PS at 6500rpm and 0-60 in 4.7 secs.

Good luck though matey!!!

i was originally going to get a punto gt but i ran an online insurance quote through for a scooby and it can out pretty cheap, the impreza sports are nice but once your used to a turbo its hard to go back
