  1. Cheers mate, yea not the best. But needs must. Price dropped £8500 :(
  2. Subaru BRZ for sale Mileage is 48205, may rise slightly SE Lux model, has cruise control, heated seats, keyless entry and start, climate control, air con, folding mirrors, Pioneer navigation/stereo system with Bluetooth functionality and hands free. Recent MOT until March 2020. No advisories. Last service at 47857 miles in March carried out with MoT with receipt. Previous partial service history, 11744 miles with receipt 21776 miles with receipt Receipt for oil and filter in May 2017 between MoTs at 35399 and 42885 miles. New taillights were fitted in March 2016 due to water ingress (common issue) Still stay dry. New higher capacity battery recently fitted, common issue, can now start after 2 weeks of no use. New rear pads in March 2016 and fronts November 2017 Couple of small mods Milltek Cat back exhaust Takedo air intake Lowering springs, still clears speed bumps but wheels fill arches much better. HT Auto side skirts and front splitter. The Splitter has a scrape on it as shown in the pictures. Misjudged a curb. Has the odd stone chips to be expected for the age. But mostly looks great. All wheels are mark free. Lower price is because the car is a Cat D repaired at beginning of 2017. Front passenger side damage. new bumper, light and wing plus brackets and everything else required for fitting. Suspension checked and all ok. Don’t let this put you off it drives great and wouldn’t know if it wasn’t recorded. Plus many of these cars are accident damaged and repaired without being declared as you’ll see if you’re on any forums or Facebook groups. Least you know where you stand with this one. I have the HPI check from my purchase available too. It is booked in for the valve spring recall for cars on the 20th May. Obviously you can keep this booking if you’re local or it’s something you’ll want to look into. I’ve checked other BRZ’s at this age and mileage and they’re over £13000-£15000 so I think my price is more than reasonable for the condition and taking into account the Cat D history. Only selling because my partner has unfortunately had to be in the hospital a lot lately and I need to free up some money otherwise I’d be keeping it. Test drive welcome as long as you have proof of temp insurance for it. Otherwise I’ll be driving. If you require any more info please don’t hesitate to contact me. Located in Sheffield.
  3. I’ve checked the ticket and it’s down in my name and car ref so not transferable. I have paid for the refund protection, don’t know if it covers 1 day before but will give it a go. Sorry again. I was really looking forward to this too. Washed and polished he car last weekend in prep :(
  4. Really sorry but I’m not going to be able to make it now. My partner is back in Hospital again. She’s got Crohns so is in and out all time and ended up back in again last night [emoji21]. Timing as always seems to happen when I’ve got a show planned and already paid! Obviously need to stay local now though. Are tickets transferable? Anyone want it?
  5. I’d be up for that too. I’m Sheffield so can tag along somewhere after along M1? Might not be able to keep up though, only in a BRZ lol. Unless it’s sold by then...
  6. I’m a electrician and I detest car electrics, they’re a dark and evil art. More electronic than electrical (bigger difference than you’d think) the stuff in cars. Always a million ****** cables everywhere you look in cars too. Good luck haha!
  7. Just signed up and paid [emoji106]
  8. Haha yea it happens. Yea got it last Saturday. Miss the power massively, get it on a B road and it’s almost as much fun though. Nice having something more refined and new too. It looks mega too, overall I’m happy. Still plan to return to STi Type R world when I get my own place with a garage though. As long as prices don’t skyrocket. Otherwise I’ll settle for a regular classic STi lol
  9. Don’t tempt me! I’ve already been looking at supercharger and turbo kits! Haha. Far too much money on these though, may as well buy something else if I go that route. Plus don’t want to ruin reliability after worrying about engines blowing up for last 7 years lol
  10. After 3 Impreza’s ive now gone for a BRZ. & im loving it! Yes it’s down massively on power compared to my tuned Scoobies, but I’m having a great time in it, especially on the current wet roads :) Only got the ad pics at the minute thanks to the weather but she’s a beaut! Nice having something a bit more modern and refined for a change too. Mostly though I’m enjoying not having to worry about it rusting or worry about the engine deciding to randomly blow up on me at some random time, or driving it on salty roads. Can just drive and enjoy it :) just hope I don’t get bored of the low power too quickly. First job though is to get a UEL manifold put on it to get that burble back!

  13. Basically as Tidgy said. The gearing means It’ll be at 3700 revs at 70 so a thirsty and noisy on motorway trips. And no specific quirks in my ownership, just check the DCCD works correctly. Other than that, rest of it is usual Classic Impreza checks. Mainly check for rot and bad repairs! You won’t regret it. I love mine!! I’ll be proper gutted to see it go :( shame you weren’t looking sooner mine is for sale. May have got a buyer though...
