207000km (about 128k miles)

MOT 'til Nov

4 new Toyo T1Rs

Cat 1 Alarm

Prodrive exhaust

A/C (working)

STi wheels

Usual JDM(yo) spec

Price £1700

 

I've had this for about 6 months, bought off Dave_Q on here (there is a thread on it somewhere). I mainly bought it as I've been renovating a house so it's been useful for carting stuff about but mainly just because I wanted one! However I've got another heap stored at my Dad's and he wants the space back, so I think I'm gonna have to sell this. I'd really prefer it to got to someone on here as I CBA with the type of *buyer this will no doubt attract elsewhere.

 

Lets get this straight from the start; this is not a minter. It's a bit scruffy, there are dings down both sides, it's had a blowover at some point which is far from bad but you'll see it if you start properly looking. However it's an honest example which hasn't been overly monged about with and you will have a job even finding another early one like this. I've spent all day cleaning it (it was HANGING!!!)  and it now looks pretty nice.

Rear arches are just starting with some small blisters (other side is similar)

Look! No SuperDraggerMushroomNitro induction kit! No wanky dump valve!

As you can see in that pic, the driver's seat has a sewn-up rip in it. The rear bench has a couple too, looks like it's been chewed by a dog or summat.

These trims want tidying up, as do the roof rails and the wiper arms

For the last 6 months I've promised myself I would bin that fucking horrible towbar, replace that 'looks like it's come off a 70s Datsun' foglight for something more suitable and put some proper import plates on it which would tidy up this rear end 1000%. Unfortunately I didn't do any but I'm tempted to make this a condition of sale!

 

413451808.jpg

 

 

Other things to note - it's fucking desperate for rear disks & pads, again this was something I was 'getting round to' as a result the brakes are less than stellar. When it's 1st started and when it's held on full lock the Power Steering belt squeals. I've adjusted it to no avail and it's a newish looking belt. I remember Dave telling me he replaced the ps pump with one from a breaker, don't know if that's related. The gearbox is a bit tired. It's fine in normal use and it's fine most of the time if you're being a lunatic, just don't rush a downchange into 3rd. Basically it's fine and you just drive around it.

 

Ok some good bits: Dave did the cambelt when he had it, it's had a service in the last year, I've put 4 new Toyo T1Rs on it which have probably done less than 500 miles, everything in it works. It's fitted with the ECU from a saloon (the JDM saloons had about 250bhp, the wagons had about 220bhp using a smaller turbo, so the saloon ECU gives it a bit more shove. I still have the original), it has pillarless doors which everyone should have at some point, it has a highly sophisticated japanese security system:

Reading this back I'm probably being a bit picky, it's a 22 year old car and considering that it's in pretty good nick.

 

I've priced it at £1700. I know that's not really shiter money but I doubt you'll find a better one cheaper, if you can find one at all. If I had somewhere to put it, I'd just keep it a few years and drag it back out when there are none left for maximum profitzzz but I don't, so I can't! Located in Lowton near Warrington. Don't all rush now!

I had a saloon for a short while and they are great cars. The best bit on them though is the seats, I struggle over long distances for reasons I won't bore anyone with but I could any distance in mine without issue. Great cars.

I have had both saloon and wagon JDM WRXs and they are definitely very quick motors. The mpg is OK if you're careful. The wagon is a great load lugger, and this example looks pretty tidy. GLWTS

I had them welded into my Mk1 Pajero off roader.
They were so comfortable when just driving and held you in really well on pay and play days as well.
11/10 Would weld more into other cars.

^^ You'll probably find the Kanji/Jap script doesn't say that at all - more like 'Your mother wears army boots, round-eye'. (Don't scoff - pro signwriters have been caught out like this before!).

Aye, they are comfy pews, hold you in place well too.

MPG - yeh it's not their strong point but they can be reasonable (27, 28ish) if you try and stay off the turbo. But you won't stay off the turbo! I reckon I get about 25mpg in normal driving, including the occasional boost indulgence.

Hope this stays in the fold, I miss it muchly but have moved on.

Description seems fair, it's no minty creampuff but it's not a badly modified dog either.

Price also seems fair, not to mention the fact it's very difficult to find one without 18inch rimz and foot high Subaru logos on the side declaring the owners individuality.

I'd love to try one of these for a while, particularly in this spec (non-barried wagon). And it's only about five miles or so from SPORTY_TOWERS.

 

However, those are two reasons why I should buy it, which don't compare well to the 1700 reasons why I can't.

Surely as soon as you have one reason that's enough, how could you regret buying such a gem?

I wouldn't regret it, I just can't do it. Unless it's free!

Right well I made a very poor effort to actually sell this (infact if you have read this far, you have discovered 100% of the effort made), so I carried on looning about in it. I'm now getting fairly regular moans about 'wanting my drive back' from fatha J-T so I think I need to try again.

 

Since last time, I've done the rear disks & pads so it now stops. I removed the towbar. I bought some import sized plates (and never fitted them).

 

I also remembered there is a rust bleb along the top of the screen about 2" across. Doesn't leak etc but it's there.

 

Anyone fancy it before I ebay it?
