Default My Version 6 RA.

Hi all, well after alongtime away from the Subaru scene I’ve bought myself another, had it a few months now, imported from Japan, grade 4B with 74k on it full history and full HPI report. I wanted a rust, rot free example and they are getting very hard to find and I had to wait but for me it’s worth it. It’s got a few stone chips etc but I have to say it’s stunning for 18yrs old

The car is currently @ TD Racing having a lot of work from my choice not the cars, lol.

Simtek ECU
Hayward & Scott Exhaust
Fuel Pump
Mainfold re painted
Cam belt
Service
New under bonnet sound proofing
Bla bla bla.

Really looking forward to getting it back and enjoying it.

Here are some pics BEFORE it’s new look and private reg, this is how I picked it up

Find any decent wheels yet Pete?

ps: Thought about new age coil packs conversion? Second hand coils aren’t much and you can get a plug and play loom for it. Easy to fit...
My OE c/pack lasted a good while but when it went the car cut out and I was stranded in rush our traffic.
Been spot on ever since conversion
