1999 Impreza Sport Saloon

hi, looking a buying a 1999 Impreza Sport Saloon and have a few questions.

1. do they have height adjustable drivers seats
2. other than the power is it very similar to a wrx ie handling
3. the one we have seen says the ABS light is on and they think its a dirty sensor, are there common faults with the ABS units that might mean this could be an expensive fix


cheers in advance.

Was in a non turbo ages ago think it was a 98 if you can afford it Id go for a wrx or sti even better the handling isn't great comparing to uprated parts in wrx and as for the abs problem could just be a faulty sensor but if its the abs module they can be pricey but get the garage to do all that before you buy the car but wrx's are cheap at the moment so Id be going for one of them or an sti be the best depending on funds

theirs other ways to make the non turbo a bit better full exhaust, air filter lets the engine breathe better aftermarket leads and plugs dont know if you have coilpacks or leads, can get loads of stuff depending on budget strip weight out of the car so be faster again if thats what you into Welcome to Scoobyworld !
