Looking for advice!


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

In the next few weeks if everything works out i am hoping to buy my first Subaru :)

I am looking for a 2.0l Impreza Wrx Sti (Blobeye) and was just wondering if anyone had any pointers or things i should look out for when buying.

Other things on my mind are,

Where is the best place to buy genuine spares from in the UK?

Is there anyone on here who knows much about exterior styling? I am looking at a car at the moment which seems to tick all my boxes, however it has the WRC style spoiler and i think it ruins the car. How will it be attached? Are they easy to take off without leaving any damage? And where would i buy a genuine replacement?

Also would anyone recommend a good garage in the Lancashire area if anything needs doing?

Finally can someone explain what the difference is if the car is a widetrack edition? And are all the 2005 onwards widetrack?

Cheers, Matt

the wide track has a 10mm wider track, it has the rear wheel arch extensions and DCCD (non wide track doesn't have adjustable centre diff)


the spoiler should just be bolted through, you can pick up a genuine spoiler from a few different places, eBay, forums, etc. the std spoiler is attached with about 20 screws and clips

don't worry too much about mileage, my wrx is 330bhp and has over 100k on the clock, fsh with no expense spared.


try to buy from an enthusiast or someone that has owned the car for at least a year or two. if they have only owned it for 6 months, they might have bought it and not realised the running costs and not be able to afford to run it/maintain it. not remapped with mods, run on 95 ron fuel, missed services, or just bought to thrash

Cheers guys, the one I'm looking at is at a garage and has full service history and 50k on the clock. I was just curious, i hope that they haven't had to drill any more holes that wont be covered up by the original. post-2215-139604477084_thumb.jpg
