    Nice cars mate

    Best wheels going I'd say!

    The scooby is a wrx as standard yes? What was it running 280ish bhp??

    How much faster than the 330 did you find it?

    Welcome along

    I'm here for a good time not a long time

    Thanks guys

    It's a wrx sti sports wagon to give it the full title, subaru's models are always a mouthful haha! As standard it was 276 but was estimated to be around 330/340bhp after I had the Apexi ecu fitted and mapped.

    The 330 would actually get the jump on it from the start, until your past 4k and on full boost its slow, stuttery and unresponsive, don't get me wrong I absolutely loved the car and had so much fun in it. She would keep up with the brand new m3's, had a great bit of friendly fun with a guy in a white one, had a chat for about 20 minutes at a shell garage speaking about his car and mine, was only getting about 150 miles to a tank pretty much regardless of how I drove the car but I've always wanted a 330ci, don't know what it was about them but just loved the look and I knew in terms of relability and build quality it would be spot on the money.

    The car hasn't dissapointed at all and being completely honest, I love it more already than I do the impreza, the feedback through the wheel and just how the car feels just suits me down to the ground, I didn't have much confidence in the impreza because it didn't offer much in terms of driver feedback, it would grip like crazy but you never really had a sense what the car was doing, precise and pointy but I love to feel what the car is doing.

    Typing a novel here again haha!

    Thanks again for the warm welcome guys appreciate it!
