Which model Impreza is the best to get?
 
Hi,

I had a '99 scooby sport 2.0l 16v many years ago. I loved it, now i'm looking for a sti but not sure which model to go for.
I was thinking the STI ver 5 as it had some engine updates... Wondered if anyone could give me any suggestions?? Any & all comments welcomed.

Thanks.

An idea of budget might help

An 04/05 jdm sti version 8 sounds about right for that budget. Are you looking for a modded one or standard

Ok it dosn't look to bad. Perferably standard so i can mod it in my own way, but if i find one thats been modded to what i want then i would consider it. Thank you for you help Shambles.

depends what you want form it would be my first question, 10k is a decent udget so loads of models and spec out there.

you wanting a balls out performance, or a bit more comfortable drive?

A bit of both really. I wouldn't mind working up to 400bhp one day. I also haven't found much info regarding the STI ver 8... I also dont want to be stung with road tax either..

You're going to get stung on tax with a new age car. I believe the blobs are 400'ish pa.

My classic is 'only' 225 a year.

if an imported blobeye was brought into the UK early on in it's life you can pay just a PLG tax rate as it has no C02 reading with hthe documents. I just paid 210 for a year on my STI Spec C. It was imported in 2005, its a 2003/4 model on a 53 plate

but to be honest the price you pay on tax is just a drop in the ocean when owning these cars - lol

you missed out the important bit of that text, it mentioned any cars manfactured after a certain date, if your lucky your cars earlier than that and your in the lower band ;)

for your budget then a bug spec c or maybe even an s202, or a blob sti maybe even a hawkeye

or somethign a bit more subtle but just as fun ;)
