Impreza Sport Wagon STi Version 5- Pristine & Super Low Mileage!




Champagne Metallic (792)


The STi Version 5 Sports Wagon is one of the most interesting and capable of the classic model 5 door Imprezas. As model only built for the Japanese domestic market this was the final version before production ceased in 2000 and these are now becoming more more sought after as they become rare! This is the lowest mileage example we have had in about a decade, so when we found it and were able to buy it for our stock we were delighted. Although it's a 1998 car, condition is much like new and it should last a very long time provided it's well looked after.The engines are Sti Blue-printed units with stronger internals incl. better camshafts, valve springs and larger turbo combined with an 8,000 rpm rev limit (Normal WRX's are 7,000) packing 280+ bhp as standard. Further mechanical improvements from Subaru Technica International include a carbon fibre front strut brace, uprated intercooler, uprated suspension, 4 piston brakes at front with 2 piston at rear, etc. The STi 5 is also distinguishable by it's updated vented bonnet, crystal headlights (These have been uprated as STi 5's usually had the older style conventional headlights), light green tint on windows (Privacy glass on the rear), updated rear spoiler with integrated central brake light with red and white rear lights in addition to a fresher design of front bumper splitter. The Sti 5 interior was also of a brighter design than previous versions, with "STi" embossed front seats white dials with a digital odometer. The air-conditioning controls were also updated and a driver's SRS airbag included with a Momo leather steering wheel.
For the sports driver who wants reliable high capacity load carrying capability without the weight penalty, outstanding 4WD road holding, STi performance and reliability - this is the wagon to own. Better dynamically than the later heavier and more watered down bugeye WRX wagons, in terms of performance fun - you'll be hard pressed to find better. Classic Impreza Sti performance - with all the practicality of a normal 5 door wagon. These make other manufacturer's modern sports estate offerings look positively boring performance is bland by comparison! Watch an older video from Richard Hammond when he compares the UK Impreza to the (older than this one) Import Sti model.

Condition: Our full array of pictures will speak for themselves to show the outstanding condition of this Impreza STi 5 Sports Wagon. It's body is completely rust free there's no underside corrosion at all, nor in the engine bay. Compare to a UK car or one that's been imported for a long time then see the underside engine bay pictures of our's! It's virtually in the same condition as a 2 year old car: There's a small area of scratching to the top of the front bumper and minor pin dents on each of the front wings (Pin dents are too small to be visible in pictures). These minor faults will be repaired as part of full UK preparation. There are also some very shallow pin dents on the rear doors and around the o/s arch. These are, we feel - too small to require putting right, but can be done as an option for a small additional cost if desired. As a non-smoker's car from new of low mileage the interior is also in excellent condition with no cig burns on seats, nor any significant wear. It's very rare to find an example anywhere near this good nowadays.
Test Drive: Mechanically it's also in good condition. Strong power with good response, a nice quiet engine with no noisy valve gear or signs of a hard pushed engine. . We test drove this car after warming up - which revealed a very tight feeling car. There are no faults to report at all. This car's been regularly serviced and oil was recently changed (next oil change is not due for another 4,000km/ 2,500 miles).
