  1. Hi, new member here. Im fairly new to owning a subaru, having bought my Impreza at the beginning of autumn. Its a 2006 impreza R Sport wagon (Hawkeye) Non turbo, 160hp 2.0 AVCS. Its good fun most of the time (traffic here is a nightmare). Some recent problems with a fuel injector and an O2 sensor, but should all be back to normal this week. Currently a work in progress when the weather allows to add some personal touches to it soon
  2. Hey all, We're looking for a classic Impreza to feature in a short film shoot with acclaimed actors. The film is also supported by Film London. The car needs to be 5 door saloon (Turbo or sport), preferably based in London or close by, and available for one, or both, evening shoots on the 5th (London) and 6th (Harwich) of February 2018. The car will be static/parked throughout the scenes that it is required for. Actors will sit in the front seats. The project is low budget but can cover mileage to the locations. Food will also be provided. If interested please contact Matt - matt@blindeyefilms.com for more information. Please spread the word if you know someone who may be interested in having their Impreza featured in the film. Thanks, Matt
  3. Eyup. We've got an old much loved much battered, and I do mean battered 2001 Forester Sport. The forester has big chunky General Grabber tyres on it too. Also now got a 2008 Impreza 2L R. Bog standard with Yokahama road tyres on it. It's an awesome drive BUT the old battered (big AT tyre fitted) Forester is cheaper to run. We get an average of 30MPG in the Impreza and 35MPG in the Forester. Is this right? Not a big deal but had expected the more modern version of the engine to be cheaper to run. Expected it to be better to drive and wow, it is. Best car I've driven that I've actually owned, not the fastest but the best. Our driving is never short hops as we live in the hills in North Wales and it's minimum 5 miles on the commute which is half single track streep windy lanes, half nat speed limit. and regularly 45 mins on main roads to town so thats national speed limit mostly.
  4. Hey All, Apologies for the random request. We're looking for a great condition Impreza Turbo 2000 to be photographed for a national UK Car magazine in mid Jan. Will happily reimburse the owner for mileage and also lunch and refreshments throughout the shoot. Car needs to be in good-excellent condition to be considered and available for the whole day on 17th Jan. This is a static shoot and if driven, the car would only be photographed at low speeds. If interested please contact us on twitter at spollock@imgroup.co.uk Thanks! Subaru UK
  5. Hi guys I was driving my car and reved it under a bridge with clutch engaged after that the car doesnt want to go into any gear. It does engage in gear whilst car is off, as soon as you start it all you hear is TICK TICK TICK and you are unable to engage into any gear. Has this happened to anyone? P.S. It is not the engine.

  11. Hello I need an Actuator for a VF28 turbo does anyone have one or know where i can get a good one for a decent price. Cheers.
  12. The car is currently getting built at scooby clinic after the dreaded ringland failure and while it's a 400bhp build I'm not actually going for the power yet just building the engine for the future. It is a 330s with very basic mods like Perrin inlet and custom exhaust not sure if it has got a sports cat or normal. Just wondering what kind of power to expect as I was expecting to see it pretty much stay at 330 as it was running 329 with a piston down.
  13. Fuel octane wants the truth?

    So my hatch is currently being built by Scooby clinic and I'm about to collect it to do some running in miles. Where I am at the moment down south I can easily fill up with vpower but when I move back to the Lake district in January I won't be able to get hold of vpower or Tesco 99 as the closest one is a 90-mile round trip. This means I will have to use a lower fuel such as BP ultimate or Esso supreme at 97. I will be running one of these for my final map and I've been told it could actually make a 30BHP decrease because it's not vpower. How true is this or are they just being cautious not to get my hopes up?
  14. Hello people I took my car impreza classic out today and was giving it a fair bit of acceleration. However upon doing this the car hesitated to accelerate and appeared to have more of a lag/juddering feeling not a major judder no sounds of grinding from under or back or the front of the car just abit of lag then acceleration then lag again and i stress it was hesitant. Has this happened to anyone before and does anyone know what it can potentially be? Cheers

  18. SUBARU WRX TURBO This beast of a car is like none other on the road and is a clean well-modified example of the iconic WRX Impreza in the awesome world rally blue/gold colour combo. This has to be one of the best looked after Subaru’s out there from a genuine car enthusiast! Washed and waxed 1-2 times a week! I got this car because I fancied a change from my previous VW however I’m just a VW guy at heart therefore reverting back. MOT until 07/01/2018 – All previous MOTS included Service History with a heap of paperwork and original books Runs fantastic, had no issues with her during my ownership. Paintwork is in very good condition for age although it is a 14 year old car so please don’t expect it to be perfect – there is stone chips etc as you’d expect THE SPECS: Engine: · Full engine rebuild at 82,704 with full, detailed receipt · Brand new clutch at 115,633 miles · HKS Dump Valve · Various Silicone Hoses · Afterburner 3’’ Centre Pipe · Afterburner Raptor Performance 3’’ Back Box · Stage 2 remap by Avon Tuning · Turbo Timer Chassis: · XXR 527 alloys in Gold brand new January this year · 4 x Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres with tonnes of tread · STI Brembo front brakes · Grooved front discs, drilled rear discs Cosmetic: · STI Rear Spoiler · STI Bonnet Scoop Viewings welcomed but test drives only with proof of fully comprehensive insurance – otherwise, I’m more than happy to take you out for an extended test drive to show you what she can do! £5750 or very near offers considered! Call Harry on 07816 220 278 or 01453 860 928 (please leave a message if no answer and I will get back to you asap!)
  19. Hi All, i am wondering if anyone can help me, I have read the rules and think I'm ok to post this as I'm not selling anything but more of a what should I expect. I brought an 06 Impreza 4 years ago and absolutely loved the car at the time but over the last year my circumstances changed and fuel economy became an issue for me. I am now looking to sell it but realistically I don't know if I can and just wanted your views on how bad it is and what to expect in terms of offers. -bodywork is in general condition, few scratches from car parks and stone chips -Ecu is throwing up a MAF sensor error which Subaru quoted 500 to repair -As of today it stalls on startup unless throttle is used even then it has a rough idle but seems to drive ok (lags a bit in 3rd sometimes) -rear headlight levelling sensor is snapped -exhaust mount needs welding it has recently had 4 new tyres, all be brembo pads and discs fitted as well as a new fuel pump. I love the car but can't afford to run it or fix it right now. Is it worth anything or is it aching to go to the scrapyard. apoligies if it is in the wrong forum or not allowed, please delete if not appropriate. thanks for reading
  20. Full description and pictures of the car on the below link. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132279963644?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649
  21. Non turbo insurance

    Has anyone else's non turbo Subaru insurance rockets in price. My impreza non turbo sport has gone up by 300 😲😲😲
  22. Took my car to Zi Motorsport in Wrexham yesterday for a power run on a rolling road but of course, there was an issue. The car was only producing 329bhp which is low considering it's a 330s and it has a few minor mods. More surprisingly the torque was only 270 as the mapper said the ECU was deliberately holding the power back because of the engine? The timing is pulled out at 5000RPM or over and I have been advised not to drive it harsh. The car is running a bit lean 83-85 at peak power. The mapper said it is a possible problem with the engine but I personally think this is unlikely as it had a new engine put in by Subaru only 30,000 miles ago. The mapper also said it could just be a bad map but he can't get into the ECU as it is an ECUtek system and it needs to be unlocked. If anyone has any advice on what the problem is or who I could call that would be great as I don't wanna spend money on a mapping session that might not even work. Also is this the best place to post this issue or is there a mapping section on the club site?
  23. Hi guys, I'm giving away Subaru Legacy S401 2.0 Twin Turbo Front & Rear Brake Discs & Pads. I've bought the set for my Legacy, the plan was to update the braking system but I unfortunately flew off the road and the discs have been sitting in their boxes for a while now, just collecting dust and taking space in the garage. The parts were bought from www.importcarparts.co.uk, feel free to check their details there. If you are willing to come to Stevenage and collect them - great. In case you want to get them by post the postage is for you to cover. I am literally giving the parts away. If you want photos, I can take a few snapshots. Here's the stock image
  24. Below I have the description and pictures for my old classic Impreza that is currently on sale. I would just like some genuine opinions of how much people think the car is worth. I have spent over 10,000 on it and have receipts to prove it, I know I'm never going to get that back but I am genuinely unsure how much the car is worth with all of its upgrades as seen below. This is a auction for my prize possession a classic 1994 imported WRX. I bought the car 2 years ago and have spent every minute since perfecting it spending countless time and money on it. Unfortunately it is time to sell as I am going to be getting a house soon and wont be able to afford the costs. The car will be greatly missed and I would like to make sure it goes to someone who will keep it running well and overall take care of it as I have. Below I will go into full detail of the specs of the car and show in pictures how much it has transformed over the past 2 years and no corners have been cut. Body The car was originally Silver when I bought it and silver was its original colour from Subaru. When I bought the car I had it repainted 02C World Rally Blue to look more like a iconic Impreza. Under the bonnet, inside the doors, under the boot lid have all been done repainted blue. There are some stone chips on the front splitter. The car is always washed regularly with Autoglym products including polishing and waxing recently. Both front and rear number plates are legal and have carbon fibre lettering to add to the look, they also both say “ Subaru Boxing Club” in small underneath. The Windscreen has been replaced only last year so is spotless. Recently fitted new windscreen wipers also. Features rare STI clear tail lights and clear front lights. Underneath the whole car has been undersealed to prevent rust at a later date. Interior The interior has been treated to a newer looking set up with Blue STI bucket seats and a matching rear bench and door cards. As you can see on the pictures a lot of the cars interior is carbon fibre dipped this has been done professionally and in great detail and looks perfect exactly like the real thing not like some of the cheap stuff you see. There is a OMP racing steering wheel and a newer looking gearstick with carbon fibre knob and short shifter. Suspension Tyres and Alloys I have fitted BC BR Coilovers which are fully adjustable from soft to hard and ride height. The car has Rota alloys painted in gun metal with Yokohama Semi Slick Tyres all still have good tread on them. Brakes The brakes have been upgraded to the calipers from a 2004 Impreza so it now has 4 pot on the front and 2 pot rear. Full EBC Red stuff pads all round with drilled and grooved discs you feel like you can drive the car fast because it gives you the confidence that you have the right brake set up to stop you safely. Performance Modifications The car started life as a WRX with around 230BHP when I first got it Dyno’d but it was my aim to reach 300. The mods below have the car running a safe but powerful professionally mapped 311.8BHP. . Japspeed Front Mounted Intercooler . Japspeed Full exhaust system from turbo back de-cat 3” . Japspeed Aluminum lightweight radiator . 440 Yellow injectors professionally cleaned full flowing (have the receipt to prove it) . K&N 9” Cone air filter . RCM upgraded fuel pump . TD05 Turbo (checked by Eurospec to be fully working no damage) ECU The car has a Simtek ECU capable of various maps for different power inputs mapped by Steve Simpson who is the creator of the Simtek ECU. He himself personally mapped the car and signed the ECU as proof this was all carried out at ZI motorsport. The car also has two red switches which control the anti lag and launch control. On high revs the Anti lag will spit flames and pop and band extremely loud and good fun! but can be turned on and off by switch. Security The car has a Clifford alarm system 650 MK11 fitted which includes a immobilizer which if you come to view I will demonstrate. The system also has a remote start which means 5 minutes before you leave start up the car via the key fob so it can get to the right temperature and remotely turn it off after it has cooled down this is good for the engine and a good show off feature when your car starts itself. The car will also give a single buzz at nosey people looking trough the windows or potential thieves and if the continue to look the alarm will sound. Other features I have paperwork receipt proof of all that follows: . Recently changed 4 NEW coil packs . NEW battery only a year ago . Forge Header tank . 110% Brighter headlight bulbs . Rocket cover gasket recently replaced . Sound proofing in doors and boot. . Gearbox,Clutch and Diff replaced last year . New age power steering pump modification done by ZI Motorsport . STI Spoiler fitted recently . Wheels recently aligned . Oil, coolant and spark plugs all done Mileage The car has done 180,462km which converts to 112,133 miles but the car being 23 years old this is understandable and the car has always been well looked after with regular servicing and Eurospec recently inspected the Cam-belt and all was well the engine runs fine with no bad sounds. Japfest As shown in one of the pictures the car recently attended Japfest 2017 on show. I still have the show number and pictures of the car on display. The car also features a Japfest sticker in the rear window. Insurance The car is extremely cheap to insure this is because on the log book and on the DVLA system the car shows up as a Subaru Impreza GL 2.0. This is due to a small amount of WRX being imported wrongly. Try for yourself the insurance is unbelievably cheap and the tax is only £20 per month which is very cheap for a Impreza. The car is officially a WRX import as shown on its engine code. Overall Overall the car has been cared for and not driven badly. The engine has always been allowed to warm up and cool down before and after being driven. Im sure there is lots I've forgotten to mention as the car is packed with so many features and this description is long enough already but you wont be disappointed with this Impreza its loud fast and gives the the confidence to drive it how it should be. Any Questions please text me and ask I would be happy to provide more information and pictures. The Car comes with 2 folders worth of history and receipts for all the work carried out.
