  1. I managed to buy this 2001 impreza,
    on ebay for £300....:)
    its done 100k
    with a full service history,
    new belts plugs leads etc last year,
    clean oil no leaks or gasket problems...

    was owned by a retired guy for the last 3 years,
    and failed an early mot on a rusty rear subframe, and a bit of welding
    It was still taxed and mot'd,
    so i insured it for £30 for the day with extra breakdown cover for 50p !
    drove it home 140 miles and it was a blast

    im sure i can part it out for more that its cost me ...:D

    i don't think you can fail an early mot and still use the old one? now they are online i thought the new mot replaces the old one and therefore it's on as a fail if the five-o anpr you? happy to be corrected.
  6. tbh the mot fail was only 2 days b4 the sale ....
    the old one had a week to run ..
    so prob no worries...:)

  8. i reckon you could part it out for enough to be able to buy a subarugears reverse ring and pinion and run the gearbox as well!!!

    EJ20 / EJ25?
    I assume it's not a turbo?

  13. Defo a 2.0 litre non turbo, no bonnet scoop and I think impreza's didn't come with the 2.5 engine
  14. what do you want that for?

    To annoy the purists I'd imagine!
  16. once its done its done!
  17. Shredding rubber and blowing away boy racers.
    Or just to replace an outdated air cooled motor.
    I would.

    Nah, you can go back easy enough.
  19. Yup it's the non turbo 2.0
    It's as sweet as a sewing machine...:cool:
