My first impreza


Recommended Posts

Just re-registered following the forum issues.  So I picked up my first impreza today, a 2002 bigeye WRX.  Absolutely love it, and I haven't even given it full throttle yet!!


As they say, a picture says a thousand words, and heres a few thousand to get you going!  They are from the original advert and I will take some of my own soon.

And Blobeye dash very nice :D had some money spent I would say a great buy

I'm a massive Hawkeye fan and felt the same as you with bugeyes, and had a blobeye but sold that on but still got full use :) Father in law forward planning ;) 

And my Bug I've had that long I can't sell it but might soon I keep looking at hawkeyes. But will see what next year brings it will be hard to let it go now :)

Wotcha and welcome - what a beast some serious attention paid to that one - you know what though I think you could go 18" on the rims if you wanted to I think with the rest of the mods it wouldnt look over the top

Thanks all.

Iain I'm told its running about 270-280bhp, but no dyno print out. Will have it on the rollers at some point.

Can't turn your nose up at that! I'm sure the smile is still on your face now, I bet that was the best drive home? Now comes any excuse to get out in it " milk dear I'll go and get it" from the next county lol ;)

Had an issue today with a misfire, turned out the lead to the coil had come loose on number 4 cylinder and caused the misfire.  All sorted now and had a lot of fun in it today.  Couple of pictures I grabbed earlier
