Hi Team, in the Market for a Manual Wagon to do some work on and improve. Saw this listing https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/subaru/auction-2586721445.htm wondered what general issues you guys see in it? having almost 300k on the body and a unknown engine swap. It seems he has done a fair bit of work on pumps and pulleys and suspension components so seems fine to me? Just never owned a Subi past 150kms. Any redflags i should be looking out for here?
Hey team Ive managed me score myself a nice deal on a new daily driver which is an 08’ Subaru Impreza 2.0 Manual. Super nice car for the price and really my first decent car that I’ve owned. I’m looking for advice on lowering the car at some stage, what sort of route to take, easy and sensible options for this car. I was wondering is struts and springs from a WRX or S-GT from the same era would be an idea? I reckon these cars look super nice on a decent set of wheels and a wee bit lower to the ground. Correct me if I’m wrong but the stud pattern for the wheels is 5x100? Could anyone advise me on the offset of the wheels, etc for when buying aftermarket wheels? I’m not that clued up on them. and for anyone who has owned the same sort of car, what are some general modifications you did to the car to improve anything from basic engine performance, driveability, servicing, and general things I should keep and eye out for, whether it could be problematic or not? Any help is appreciated Cheers.
Hi Everyone, I'm in the market to buy a Wagon and have been recommended a Subaru by a friend. As there are so many on the market at the moment I'd like to get some advice from 'experts' on which particular model would be best suited to me. I require it for work and will be loading the boot with more than the average hatchback can handle but not heavy stuff. I will also be driving up to 40k per year on the highways so fuel economy will definitely help. And if it can get on the beach that would be a bonus! Budget is around 8-10k. Many thanks for any advice. Andy
