  1. With great sadness my pride and joy is now for sale,I have owned the car for three years and four months and enjoyed every minute of owning this vehicle. I am the first owner in the UK and it has only been in the UK for the amount of time I owned the car making it a fresh import, It was classed as a grade 4 from japan which is very clean and rust free. I bought many OEM parts and aftermarket quality parts. The car is running in KM still and has the 112mph speed restriction on (so yes it’s not the typical Subaru that has been ragged around everywhere ) ,I actually have a speedo converter to MPH but have not fitted it yet but will go with the sale, It only has 88,000 miles on the clock which is still low miles for the age of the car. MOT till 10/07/2020 it passed no problem same as the year before. Smoke free cabin and is very clean interior and exterior. Undersealed all arches to keep it fresh, Viewing is welcome at any time but no test pilots or time wasters please. So I have replaced things on the car been exact OEM replacements and modifications here is the spec list so far. I am a car enthusiast and can not say again on how clean the car is I am very fussy when it comes to cars as some people may kno, people are always commenting on how clean it is even when going to the shops etc which is always a positive note, I am confident first to see will buy specially if you are on the market for a clean forester. The body and paint work is in very clean condition you actually wouldn’t think it’s a 2001 vehicle, it had a full 3 day wash, clay bar, polish and wax to seal it only using the best products like autoglym and meguirs. (purchased from import car parts and Subaru ) OEM parts replaced over the years I have owned the car Genuine subaru OEM lambda sensor Genuine knock sensor Genuine water temp sensor Genuine Front outer cv joint Genuine Inner and outer track rod end with boots on both sides Gates water pump and timing belt kit (fitted by BTG performance KM 130240) Genuine right and left side rocker cover gaskets Genuine alternator/power steering and aircon belt Genuine ac tensioner holder/pulley Genuine brake pedal cover Genuine front OEM glass headlights Genuine fuel pump gasket Front passenger wheel bearing Driver and Passenger arch rain guards Pagid rear brake pads Aftermarket modifications EJ205 engine remapped at Roger Clark Motorsports by duncan at racedynamix on ECUTEK software A safe 260bhp 300nm torque 1.2bar boost TDO4l turbo (have dyno sheet) "3 japspeed sports cat "3 hks mid pipe nos res "3 custom back box 2.5 japspeed uppipe (all genuine gaskets used) NGK platinum spark plugs HKS SSQV dumpvalve TMIC silicone piping Pipercross induction kit Walbro fuel pump The engine is SOLID!

The full body kit with the wider arches. also some optional extras like the cargo rear fan. OEM very RARE wing mirror covers. subaru 4 pots brakes. Car it self is very very clean inside and out. this is my pride and joy so it was very well looked after. I have spent a fortune on this car been my project and no short cuts have been taking and quality parts been used. I have a file full of every single receipt I have kept along with history of the car. NO crash damage history NO rust NO dents NO curb marks on wheels everything works and functions on the car no knocks,rattles I have kept all the OEM stock parts like suspension etc will go with the car,if you want them. I only use the best lubricants for the car, all changed recently along with regular oil changes will also have a fresh oil change with the sale Millers 10/40 engine oil and filter front and rear diff fluid race brake fluid subaru coolant subaru ATF fluid power steering fluid some of the modifications are brand new like the BC coilovers Alloy wheels Nankang tyres and refurbished 4 pot calipers etc with out failure the car gets washed(two bucket method) and polished every week. any questions please ask, please please no stupid offers or the price been to high you can find cheaper ones on ebay most likely but 100% not up to this standard or spec. The price is suited to the condition of the car and spec. PLEASE NOTE/ gold F badge and wing mirror covers are not included hence the price drop) The plain wing mirrors and there is a black Subaru emblem badge if you want it contact me on 07506175712 for more info or pictures etc price is £7495
