Noobie Scooby questions

I decided to buy a Scooby after a friend got one (a '95 Pro-drive WRX) and let me have a go - instantly hooked

The example I bought was not as exotic and a little tatty, but is 5 years younger on an 'X' and, being constrained by a budget, a little cheaper.

According to the VIN plate, I have a 2000 Impreza 2.0 turbo saloon (classic), non JDM. Using the information from this forum, I still could not make sense of all the VIN digits, so I rang Subaru UK and they told me I have a UK spec Dutch import. FYI the VIN is JF1GC8KD3YGXXXXXX.

The front discs are well worn and need replacing. The calipers are 4-pot units in grey with Subaru embossed in white. Can anyone tell be what size of disc I need and where you would recommend I get replacements from along with pads.

Also, does anyone know were I could get my hands on an owners handbook and workshop manual (ebook or hard copy) for this model.

just ask for any subaru 4 pot caliper disks, they are the same from classic to new age.

only differing ones are the two pots and the brembo's.
