Looking to buy Impreza WRX type RA / R STI

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, looking to buy the above. Under 60k mileage (must be confirmed), 1997+ year. Will look at anything that fits what I’ve written. My dad has imported close to 100 Impreza’s (when I was too young to drive) and now I want one! Cash in bank ready, not just browsing. Thanks, Eddie

Seeing as you've posted in this section,  I assume you've already seen it but there is a member selling a type r with 68k with a uprated engine and hawk dccd 6 speed .

I know it's not standard but the 6 speed and later engine are probably worth £4k in parts alone .

So here's a link and good luck with the search

Thank you for the reply. I had seen it, nice car but a lot more work done to it than I would like. Looking to maybe import one myself after looking around.

Relatively standard ones do come up but not that often . If they've been in the uk for a few years obviously rust can become a issue but hence why I shared Nick's one as it's only been over here for a couple of years .

Is it going to be a investment,  weekend toy, something to play with (mod) or daily driver? 

As I know someone selling a few of his rare scoobs and would see if he has anything to fit your bill

I’ve always appreciated nice version 1s. My dad used to import them for a living some 10-15 years ago. Just looking for a great example to use around 3 times a week (I’m in central London) but also something that won’t lose money. Ideally a nice clean 99/00 STI. Have a good budget for the right one. Thanks again

Here's a screenshot of what he's looking to sell from his collection,  let me know if anything catches your eye and I'll get in touch with him and find out if he's still got it

wow @savage bulldogs that is some collection, makes me wonder what they are not selling!!!

Would love a Series McRae or any standard/interesting early impreza at some point.

Hope they find the right home.

Think last count he had over 30 cars , majority of which are Impreza's 😎 

So there's quite a few not for sale (track and newage scoobies ) but he's definitely got a addiction lol . Think it's only due to his storage costs going up so he has to empty one of his workshops lol .

@savage bulldogs oh my 🥴

i really shouldn’t ask but do you know how much they would be after for the series McRae or any other early ones he might have that he wants to part with?

You’re welcome to pm me if he doesn’t want it plastered all over the forum

Sure is a lovely collection of scoobies , dare say the Mc Rae and the press car are gonna be worth a few quid in a few years .

I'd love a few off the list myself but I like to "improve " motors and struggle to keep them standard enough to be a investment 🙄

Me to - that is engineering take something and improve - If I was lucky enough to be able to buy an original cobra - the brakes would have a serious upgrade, originals stored nicely away

With all them bonnets up, where would you start on a Saturday afternoon, armed with a few tinnies! 

Looking for a version 2 myself but those look a bit too nice for what I have planned. Anyone know of any for sale that need a little work?
