Subaru to pull out of the UK

Priced those shims up and a few other little bits with my mate at the stealers yesterday, while chatting he mentioned that they now have to buy thru a 3rd party as Subaru UK will not exist in approx 2 years !!!!
After the poor car sales they are calling it a day,
Not that Im surprised after the cack thats the Impreza now but still a shock.

Re: Subaru to pull out of the UK

as they say,5h1t happens,maybe if they hadn't have done the LTD editons to an exclusive market etc and given us the hatch,sales would have prob still been good..mind you,i hear the EVO will no longer be available to buy in the UK soon either..

Re: Subaru to pull out of the UK

Evo has again been doomed for a year or 2, the hybrid will really appeal to the petrol heads lol

Re: Subaru to pull out of the UK

most parts dont come through subaru uk anyway, as far as I am aware they come through International Motors, the importer.

Re: Subaru to pull out of the UK

Most suppliers selling dealer parts buy direct from japan, Im on really good terms with my dealer parts guy and he was saying that they cant compete with prices for dealer parts as they are available from japan so cheap
