North west Scotland on the A894. The bridge is Kylesku about 40 miles north of Ullapool.

Some of the best scenery in the world, although I may be a bit biased.

Really nice pics, brought back some memories of a similar trip I did in a VW camper many many moons ago

Thanks for the comments guys.

The 1st pic is looking north on the B862 north of Spean Bridge.
2nd is looking towards Bonar Bridge on the B9176 (melted an M3 on the damp twisty road before stopping to take the pic )
3rd is A837 north of Lairg
4th & 5th are around Kinlochbervie (well north!)
6th is next to Scourie
7th is the Kylesku bridge
8th is A894 north of Ullapool.

All awesome roads, especially in the scooby. Even the Mrs enjoyed the run despite some brisk driving

The car was right in its element. Just brilliant to drive on those roads, and despite numerous STi only overtakes and 'seeing what it could do' returned 29.4 mpg on the trip. Have to plan it carefully though as Super UL not easy to find up there. Ullapool has it though. (151.9 per litre!)

This has dropped a long way down the list, how do you post pictures is it still a case of having photobucket book somewhere with links?

Yeah, just copy and paste the photo from photobucket. Works for me anyway
Some of the other guys might know a better way though.

Great photos

Fantastic car

And roads just made for a scooby

I'm on Holliday for three weeks soon so think I will have a blast up there to experience the roads

No wobble as yet but still taking it easy on the run-in. I will never get it to look that clean and shiny again!

Glad you finally got one Norm and its looks great, it must have been a couple of years ago you started thinking of a hatch, keep looking at the new shape myself but cannot justify the extra cash on a car that is not much different looking to what I have!

Are they dealer fit Vred tyres?

I did buy a 330s last time but stupidly sold it and missed it so much came back 12 months later! I had to import the tyres myself and the dealer fitted them to the alloys which were an extra. I think this one looks much more agressive than the 330s, I always wanted the GT2 wheels but couldn't justify it on the 330s this time I just didn't tell the wife!

I didn't think the dealer would fit them, my experience of all car dealers (not just Subaru) is they like to fit the most expensive tyre on the market and then charge more than anyone else, those Vreds are a bargain!

Anyway car looks great, making me reconsider a new hatch, or my cheaper plan of fitting a 2011 front bumber and grille!! ;-)

The rear lights with the inlays also make a huge improvement in terms of appearance over my 330s but were an extra. The Vreds cost me 170 a corner but you are right they were quoting 300 tyres. But the offer on the GT2's at the moment is without tyres so you can supply anything

Which exhaust is fitted to the 320R hatch?
It has the appearance of a standard Sti hatch back box to me.

Nice car budgie. But then I would say that
Can't make my mind up about a front lip. My car is going in for a lower grill as soon as I can find the time though.

As stated above always wanted them on the 330s and got a deal on them this time around. Think they suit the Hatch and the car always looks better with bigger wheels due to that 'gap' between the rear wheel and the windows.

Budgie,

Is that a HTAuto Spoiler?

It has always had a droop in centre!! (between Air dam) but After 3k miles the lip spoiler started to get more droop when staionary and folding down at near 90% at 70-80mph , (spotted by a car mirror I was following)

Dealership has now given it VIAGRA and fitted a few slightly bigger screws with "Repair" washers, now quite stiff and level with both sides no more drooping

It may be worth putting small repair washers on existing size screws. I'd prefer spoiler to be a the "weak point" rather than front bumper

i have the Zunsport grill in black and very nice quality (you may notice spoiler slightly drooping after about 1k miles)
