Is it worth getting a WRX/UK 300?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the owners club but had my Subaru for a short while now it's an Impreza WRX blob eye 2004. However I've seen a limited edition Subaru for sale caller the UK 300 or the WRX 300 which from what I've gathered means they only built 300 not that it's 300bhp? Also that it has optional prodrive package which I'm not sure if this has.

Could anybody tell me the main difference between them or if it would be a worthwhile upgrade/investment as they must be quite rare. Many thanks.

It's a worthy upgrade if you ask me from a standard wrx. You're right only 300 was made I'd dare say the figures of how many is left is a lot less. But difference in a nut shell is its a wrx with extras bumpers ecu spoiler headlights ,exhaust on UK 300. Are the most noticeable part

That's what I like about it the rarity. So it will have more power than my WRX but not not as much as an sti?

How will I know if it's real apparently none of them have anything on the log book hence the cheaper insurance as it's just down as a regular wrx.

Uk300 will have a certificate usually and a badge with the number in the center console section. Also alloys spoiler... Actually picture here if it's the Bugeye

Blobeye version I think the biggest way to tell is the SWRT logo on the seats and stickers on the bumper will have silver badges on the car but you can buy them of ebay now so does make it a bit harder to know

It's the blob eye WRX 300 I'm after the one I've found has the badges on the wings and the 300 interior I haven't checked the numbered plaque yet. Is there no way to be certain if there isn't a certificate as anyone could fit a standard WRX with that interior and get badges off eBay.

Unfortunately not mate Prodrive seem to be getting less responsive to questions about their prodrive cars :( 

Only way to know for sure is to check the paper work and badge but even they get sold on. :(
