    Anyone want to take me for a spin?

    So I知 99% sure I知 after one, but every time I take my Subaru out I think I might regret it!
    has anyone got one in the Northwest so I can have a proper look around one?
    Spending 15k on something I haven稚 seen is a bit crazy! Lol

    thanks
    Chris

    What Subaru do you have? I’ve got an s15 and a blobeye sti. They’re both very good cars but quite different. You’re doing the right thing Trying to get a spin in a Silvia before changing.

    Hi mate, a 400bhp Classic Impreza WRX STI Type R.
    Bit worried that I’m going to miss the speed and power... but then, I get more fun in the corners...
    Was a few at a Car Meet last night, one was nowhere near the owner and Just before I was about to ask the other one, he got in and bounced it off the limiter for 5 minutes from cold. So didn’t think that was a great person to ask either, lol.
    I assume they don’t have anywhere near as good handling as the Subaru’s? Obviously you need to drive them different when you’re going hard?

    An sti would be much quicker on a B road. An s body is still fun to drive but it won’t go from a to b as quick. There’s always the fear of the back end stepping out! Try get a spin in one, you’ll only be able to decide then!

    Yeah, hopefully someone close replies!
    Not that it really matters, but what’s the mpg like in comparison?

    SR20DET is actually ok. 30mpg is achievable on a long run. Somewhere between 25-30 for normal driving
    My Impreza struggles to get 25mpg

    Not bad, probably the same as mine then. Can usually get around that.
    Just been reading a really helpful post on gt-Torque about handling for them. I’ll probably do a drift / advanced driving course with it, really don’t want to forget I’m in a rear wheel and drift into a tree... though mine tends to forget its 4 wheel drive in the wet and it starts powersliding , lol.
    More excites about getting one now !

    With some very careful driving on a dual carriageway/motorway run I got 34mpg.
