subaru US are much more interested in the owners, Subaru UK have basicly destroyed a fanatical following of the brand. They are more bothered about sponsering horse trials and golf tourneys now rather than motorsport 😞

It does seem that way. Yeah it is quite sad. They are not releasing STI's over here now are they?

impreza is no more in the uk 😞 in america they even released an S209. In fact subaru models in the UK are pretty poor, no more manual gearbox and im not even sure they do any turbo charged cars any more, tis a sorry state of affairs 😞

 

Add in the success subaru US are having in rally and rallycross and i suspect they will only get bigger over there.

Not a fan that they are going down the auto and non turbo car route. It will be sad seeing the US and Japan getting new models and us getting nothing over here.

Yeah I get that. Got nothing against those cars, in fact some are very nice. But it is just a shame. I guess loud, fun cars arent for everyone lol 🙂

So I have had more bad luck. Someone reversed into me while I was queuing to leave tesco on Saturday 😞

My door and fender keep scraping of each other when I open the door to get in and out.

nightmare - can you get something in just to pry it out and stop the rubbing until a repair can be made?

Not sure tbh. I'm opening the door just enough to get in so it doesn't scrape too bad. It gets collected on Monday to be fixed. Should be covered by the other persons insurance.

Hi All,

The build has been quiet for a while until last week. I finally had time to get the car wrapped in its new colour and I am so happy with how it has turned out. It is not completely done just yet as I need to finish the side skirts and install the full HT Autos lip kit. 

Here are some pictures of it so far. I will add some more once I have the last bits done and the kit installed 🙂

Very nice

Thank you, I wasn't sure if I would prefer it to the satin black but I think it beats it 🙂
