Hello!

Thought i would share my current cars.

My Impreza Sport, its a 1999 2.0AWD.
When i bought it in September 2011, it was looking a little basic & sorry for itself, but a lot of work & pennies later took it from this:

to this:

Amongst many other things it now has a Genuine borla UEL Manifold, 4 Pot front Brakes & Rear Disc Conversion.

As far as im concerned, other than maintainence, this car is completed.



Now last month i came across this for sale, its a 2000 Impreza Turbo 2000.

Very low mileage!

Bought her with a short MOT, which it failed instantly, but only on 1 Tyre & a Lower Ball Joint, i took this as an opportunity to change the wheels of course for something more desireable...

Shes also had a full machine polish, full service including all fluids changed too. Have some HID headlights here ready to fit, a Zerosports induction hose & a dashtop triple gauge pod, just need to get some gauges!

Thanks guys, as you can tell im certainly a classic fan lol its the car i always watched as a kid & wanted for about 13 years. Was a very happy man when i bought that Sport, my first Impreza.

Done over 50K miles in that in less then 3 years lol

The 2000 also passed her MOT yesterday morning too so its certainly playtime now Very Happy

I'm going to the Custom & Modified show at Yorkshire Autodrome on 18th May,
The Yorkshire Modified Show in Pickering on the 8th June and then the
Northern Big One on the 29th June. I might be able to squeeze another one in though,
and Scarborough is not too far away really.

Bought a couple of new bits for the Turbo.

Bailey Dump Valve
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

New Wheels, Inovit Redline's
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Fitted the Dump Valve & it sounds perfect, clear sound but not too loud. These wheels are the ones i originally wanted but could find any, wanted white too, managed to get these for just £170 delivered.

They are also 18s and the tyres are dead so im taking the tyres off my current wheels next week to put onto these

Got the wheels fitted this week, had to modify the rear arches a little bit though as they were catching rather badly. Gave her a clean up yesterday & took some pics whilst the sun was out.

Update time, since i last posted here i have been very busy with work commitments but a couple of things have been done on Mia.

Gave the engine bay a good clean up, took a while but well worthwhile
Before

After
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then picked up a Strut brace locally at a nice price too
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then came across some STi clear rear lights for just £80, couldnt miss out on these as i wanted some anyway, a lot happier with them over the standard lights, also picked up some colour coded side skirts & rear bumper spats for £20 (spats not fitted at this point)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Making good use of a beautiful car
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Then last week i got my 3" sport cat downpipe & fitted the full turbo back system, rear spats now fitted too.
Old System
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

New System
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Love the sound of this system and because it also has a removeable bung, my neighbours love it too!

Also fitted silicone turbo hoses & clear side indicators but dont have any pics of these yet.

Got a set of silicone coolant hoses to fit & refresh the coolant before winter too Smile
