I rather like that. I imagine supercar baiting would be immense fun. :)

It is; the WR1 is quicker :grin:

But I think I may have to arrange a go in one of these.

Whatevva! :P

Race ya! :roflmao:

(Actually, it must be pretty bloody close between the WR1 and this - would be interesting to see how the older car does against it on the track ... +++ )

WR1 Figs are 0-60 in 4.25

0-100 in 11.7

standing 1/4 12.9

:grin:

If you can find someone who will lend me a WR1, I'm up for it; Dunno how they got 4.25, but I'm not sure I want to try in my car.....

Worst thing I did to my mk1 Impreza was take it to Santa Pod. Never got rid of the clutch judder after that.

4.25 is brutal! The 330S is supposed to figure at 4.4 to 60 (4.8 to 62). Looking at the power and torque figures, it's pretty close to the previous model 2.5 STI with PPP.

The forthcoming 'built to order' 380S should be interesting... :eek:

Yep; I think I might need one of those, problem is they are still butt fugly..

What I need is a new job and then I can start thinking about proper expensive toys again.....

Could someone lend me an Atom 500 while I'm job hunting..:roflmao::roflmao:

Purleeze.........

God that is awful. I don't care how much you like Subaru's, you have to be really "dedicated" to buy one of those.

Guess I must be "dedicated" then.

There seems to be a strange phenomenon developing around the new STI.

Those who've actually seen a real one, in the flesh, and can tell the difference between an STI and a 1.5R, and certainly those who've spent any time with one (EVO magazine for example), are beginning to hail it as something quite special, and some of them even quite like its looks.

Meanwhile, those who've only seen pictures (and would probably never have considered one anyway) continue to slate it.

The original Impreza was a genuine cult car. Looks like this one might be too. :grin:

The STi is better looking than the others, it is growing on me. The 330 is something that should sell itself to those that like it; the 380 should be mad as a box of frogs.

It'll never win any beauty contests, but the flared arches and wider track of the STI give it a more purposeful stance, and the proportions do somehow seem to work better in the flesh than in the pics.

The standard Impreza is awful though, even I'll grant that. :grin:

I really, really like that. The only thing I would change on the new Impreza is the chavtastic LED rear lights. There was one at the Ring in July that had what I presumed to be after-market rear lights that looked, well, like normal rear lights. No pics I'm afraid.

Well if you're a space cadet or a power ranger, they probably do...

Nice one - I'd like one too, but in the current climate I can't see it happening any time soon. Did you get a good deal?

What colour did you order in the end?

A reasonable deal, considering it's a special edition that Subaru UK tend to allow very little leeway on.

Went for silver in the end. Looks good, and it's also a practical colour for hiding those dings and scratches (bearing in mind I'll be keeping this three years and 50k plus miles).

Looks good at that angle, almost Focus like. Should be mucho fun!

Nice one - make sure you post some pictures when you get it. Think I might go for a test drive at some point.
