New WRX owner

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I recently realised a childhood dream of mine and purchased my first ever Impreza.  For me, Impreza's have always been the car i've held above all others.  So to finally have one, parked on my drive, and at work, each day, getting to drive this dream car, is just a dream come true.  So yeah, wanted to introduce myself and say 'hi!'. 

As i've never owned a car like this (all my others have been standard run abouts like a 207, Megane etc) the anxiety sometimes kick's in with knowing if everything is right with it all the time etc.. But i'm loving it!  The car was very well kept by one owner for 14 years, and i'm immensley stoked on finding such a good example of one.

p.s I can't take any credit for the look of the car, as the previous owner did all that :) I think it looks awesome so am keeping it that way.

:hi: Chris and welcome to The Subaru International Drivers Club!

Congratulations on achieving your childhood dream :banana:

Fantastic that you bagged such a good example 👌

It does look awesome, I don't see many rally liveried Scoobs in the wild much these days... Yours would fit right in perfectly at Rallyday :thumbs:

In accordance with the club’s aim to improve members’ driving skills, we have affiliated with several other motoring clubs and have track days.

Events are fully marshalled and the emphasis is on fun, learning new skills and using the potential of your car in a safe environment (as opposed to on the road). You need a crash helmet.
