Hi all,

looking at buying (maybe) a wrx sti from a company called Motorseeker in Chesterfield, just wondered if anyone knew of this car.

Reg number DN60KCA white pearl saloon, badged up as a wrx sti 400R??
Someone has fitted running lights into the front fog light covers which I am not really keen on they look like a Halfords add on.

What made me a bit dubious was that the seller told me they had been to the Subaru dealer in Chesterfield who told them it must be a special edition but no more info on that was forthcoming

Any comments or info would be appreciated.

Don't know about the 400r but can you get the model code off the vin plate ?
which will tell you what it is.
someone will be along soon to clarify I'm sure.

Looks normal enough, maybe a dealer special

According to website it's sold anyway

Official Subaru UK upgrade versions were the 320R (320Ps/332lb ft) and the 340R (340Ps/ 361lb ft)
"400R" - just a badge suggesting car is good for 400BHP ?? although spec only quotes 300/300, so whether it has been forged is anyones guess.

DRL's in the foglight covers

Think I prefer the Liberal-Areo version............

sorted - the reason for the 400R badges is because the car is fitted with an Invidia R400 exhaust.
