Re: model code

Hello mate.

Think you have got the code wrong there. Is it GC8G48D? If you can put the correct Applied Model Code up I'll post up the specs for you.

Re: model code

I'm confused now.

I'm just wondering if It's one of the Late classic STi's (V5's) that were imported by Subaru Australia. I'll see what i can find out.

Could this be your Impreza?

In February 1999 a special edition "Classic" Impreza was launched by Subaru Australia it had bright leather interior, a leather/wood steering. Only 150 cars were built of that special edition that was available only as sedan in black, dark blue and green mica.

Can you post some pics? Exterior/engine etc.? I reckon it might be one of the Auz STi's.
