Impreza Sport Wagon STi Version 5 - Pristine example!
The STi Version 5 Wagon is one of the most interesting and capable of the classic model 5 door Imprezas. A model only built for the Japanese domestic market. It was on the previous model STi Version 3 that Subaru chose to introduce 4 piston signature front brake calipers with 2 piston rear callipers to match. 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 full Sti Exhaust. The STi 5 is also distinguishable by it's updated vented bonnet, light green tint on windows (Privacy glass on the rear), updated rear spoiler with integrated central brake light and the red and white rear lights in addition to crystal type headlights and 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 the 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 STI wagons, performance for money - 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!
Cosmetic other modifications: This car's remained standard mechanically aside from the addition of a Greddy turbo timer (To help preserve the turbo), a Subaru earthing kit (to improve spark plug perfromance), fitment of STi sports pedal covers, original option boost gauge (Lamco) mounted on the steering column and a change from the standard 16 inch wheels to Subaru Legacy GT-B (Twin turbo) 17" rims. Tyres are 215/45R17 in size. This example also includes privacy rear glass.In the boot there's an original option fitted plastic liner - ideal if you intend to use the car for sports, DIY, etc. where the boot carpet can usually get dirty. A Sanyo CD / Radio is fitted with CD changer on a dealer fit platform in the boot. Please note Audio is included free of charge and is not included in warranty. Note that other parts can also be sourced inexpensively - and supplied with this car. For example, we can get crystal marker lights, indicators and even used exhausts and sports roof racks.Note also that Sti 5 ECU's are also mappable with Ecutek software, so if at any point you decide you'd like to Improve your Sti 5's performance, it's relatively easy!Ask us for further details visit www.neweraparts.com for inspiration!
Condition: Our full array of pictures will speak for themselves to show the outstanding condition of this Impreza STi 5 Wagon. It's body is completely rust free there's no underside corrosion at all, nor in the engine bay. There's some very small touch up paint areas applied by the previous (one) owner on the bonnet (one stone chip), side skirt (Where the driver's foot would usually rub getting in out). Also on the front bumper there's some touch up marks on the corners. On the driver's door there's a small pin dent with touch up paint on the lower section (See pictures). The touch-up paint match is 100% perfect and except when looking specifically for faults - these repairs are not visible. None of the above points require attention, they're simply described to provide a full report of condition. If we didn't point them out here - most people probably wouldn't even notice them on inspection. We just prefer clarity in how we work. Note the car will be supplied with 4 new tyres (Including fitting balancing) as part of full preparation in UK.It's very rare to find an example anywhere near this good nowadays. Interior is in perfect condition aside from light scratches to the lower section of the n/s/r door trim a couple of very small nicks to the o/s/r door trim (Too minor to need replacement - see pictures). This Impreza Sti Version 5 Sports Wagon has been a non smoker's car since new!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.Since April 2004, a model report / extra fee has been required when SVA / iVA testing any car of newer manufacture than 10 years of age at first registration in UK. Although there are model reports for Sti 7 8 wagon models models, there are none available for the classic STi Impreza models. This mean that only 10 (or greater) year old classic Imprezas can currently be imported to the UK. As most pre 2000 year Imprezas in Japan are too tired nowadays, or just too expensive if in top condition and low mileage - we usually don't have many of these available. Just a handful each year. We simply won't buy a car that doesn't meet our exacting standards.
Compare our's to other examples in the UK that were imported to the UK before 2004 and have been through at least 6 winters all the salt, grit and mud on UK roads...Our hand picked fresh import rust free well looked after cars are much better, in comparison.
