Thanks mate. The newage are fun. I had the sti hatchback but sold it a few months back. Didn't last long before I missed it and was searching for a new subaru.

Stunning looking car, keep it maintained well and use decent fuel in it.

Any future plans for more power? If so get a trusted specialist to carry out the work for you

the shreksta thanks. I'm not to sure if I'm going to modify it yet. Wanted to keep it as standard as possible. Well maybe a few bits and a remap 😂. I had a sti hatchback that was mapped by Bob rowle so would probably use him again as was happy with how it went.

Very nice! There's a handful of the STI's (to my knowledge in the UK) and a few of the WRX variants too. I follow a couple of guys on Instagram with them too. I also own one, had it nearly 3 years but it's off the road over winter and this year while I save up for some work to be done to it

Thanks jasonwblob , I've started following a few who have them on insta. have you modified yours at all and what sort of power you running? Do you know what wheels they have as standard as mine have been changed. Would like to try and get some standard ones if possible. Thanks.

Someone posted a link to the Type RA forum earlier, it might have the original wheel type there. Mine has Prodrive PFF7's on it and is very lightly modified. Revolution 3" cat back exhaust, 3 port boost solenoid, upgraded panel filter, Andy F remap and some cosmetic bits but nothing further. Was dyno'd in March 2018 at 306 BHP from memory with about the same torque. I'm still running with the cats in too so I don't have to mess around with them come MOT time. It's very standard and how I plan on keeping it, I'm aware I could easily gain some more BHP removing the cats but I'm happy with it how it is.
