I can't link to it but its for sale in Cramlington.

FG55 FVP Grey STi Blobeye.

Is it a widetrack with DCCD? Is there anything to be worried about? Might go have a look tomorrow, but want to know any info as I don't like salesmen.

It's a secret Laughing why?











It's at the vauxhall garage, but shhhhhh don't tell everyone.

It's got TTS stickers on windows, but since that site seems to have died because they tried to copy ScoobyNet and charge people Rolling Eyes I thought it best to ask here

Might be nice under all that crud, if only theyd cleaned it before taking the photos Rolling Eyes Also will need to whip those bloody massey ferguson tyres of it, looks funkin ridiculous.
And you might want to challenge them on the £8000 price tag.

Oh I'll be haggling them on it, but its not a bad price compared to the rest out there, take a look on Autotrader/Pistonheads.....or am I looking in the wrong places?
How much should it be?

Not so sure about your ref to the tyres tho? Look like 225/40/18 to me. Which is the right size.

Looks ok to me but it won't be a 2.5 like they say it is, it will only be 2 litre unless its had an engine change, 2.5 didn't come in until the hawkeye shape.

Well this has really got me baffled, it's a 55reg car hpi checked etc, has the slightly flared arches and bumpers to match but it has no DCCD. WTF?

Spoke to Alyn at ASP and he thinks it could be a 2004 model, registered in 2005, therefore that's only worth the same amount as a 54 reg car surely? <£7000 in that case.

Just had an argument with 3 salesmen who were trying to tell me it was a car it wasn't.

Thats because they are a Vauxhall dealership who've probs taken it in part ex without actually knowing what it was, and are now figuring out theyve made less on the deal than they first thought and are maybe trying to flim flam you.

Unfortunately for them they werent expecting you to bring your 900+ mates along for the discussion Laughing

Laughing I don't think they were quite expecting me to know so much about them. One thing it had tought me, is this: I was also contemplating an Evo (just to try out), but after that, I'm quite confident that its an Impreza I should go for. If that had been an Evo, I wouldn't have had a fuggin clue.

Just been told it could be an EU import, they didn't have DCCD as standard. Anyone shed any light on this? Could it still be a widetrack if its got no DCCD?

I thought only the widetrack had the rear arches that flair out slightly and match into the bumper and looking at the pictures that one has, sure someone else will know for sure.

Also thought the electric mirror and window switches were in different places on the widetrack I think.

Where's the pics ??
The widetrack has the same heater controls and door trims as the hawkeyes
But as said it could be a EU import or an earlier model registered late if so leave it

Thought only the widetrack had the rear arched flared though, the pics are on the garage website.

The rear arches are flared to fit in the wider rear wheel base so yes it's a widetrack but seems strange not to have diff control and they claim its a 2.5.. It looks like a nice car mileage is a bit high for the asking price mind, but I would get the ID numbers and ask Subaru what the crack is with it....

Exactly what I'm going to do. Apparently there were some UK cars without DCCD. But it may be an EU import, as my first WRX was. That came through Malta and was declared a UK car at registration. I'm going to go in, packed with ammo and offer £6500 Laughing

They won't negotiate any more than £50-£100. It's Evans Halshaw company policy. I used to be the manager there.

Looks like a nice motor but personally wouldn't touch anything handled by EH, they have even described the rear spoiler as a "picnic table" very professional description.
The window sticker should knock you 2 grand off though Laughing
