I finally got a Subaru!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have been waiting since my first ride in a Subaru (1999) to own one, and now, I have one!! I may have been a bit blinded however when I came to buying it. It is beautiful; it's a 2001 WRX uk300 bug eye with 78k miles...2 previous owners, and lots of receipts. Starts with no knocks, and pulls wonderfully. I have however had to take it to a specialist, (I'm not mechanically minded...I'm man enough to admit that) who has highlighted a few issues.

Firstly, my sub frame is rotten AF...apparently it was an advisory on the last MOT, but I have been told that there's no way that it would pass like that. Secondly, the steering column coupling needs replacing...it wants to turn left when turning right, oops. Oh, and I need new discs and pads all round. Luckily the guy I bought the car off is paying for the steering coupling, apparently the part can only be bought direct from Subaru...£190.

All in all, I am very happy, but obviously financially could have done without the other problems!

Hope to get to know a few of you, and arrange meets etc.

Taking a test drive 1st in a scoob can be a bad idea, your instantly mesmerised by the power and scooby grin. I reckon we should all put them on a rap 1st and have a good look before driving them lol.

Congrats with the purchase glad your getting it sorted and it sounds like you've got a mechanic who knows what he's doing with scoobs.

Hello mate welcome to S.O.C 

Sorry to hear has so many problems but hopefully can be easily sorted out well not too costly I should say :)

But feel free to jump in on other threads good bunch on here all friendly. And I know a few car breakers you could try for sourcing parts :)
