    Stunning Scooby.. Why the change? Performance wise i bet you'll be pretty disappointed to what the S3 has to offer comapred to the subaru...

    yep know exactly where you're coming from mate having sold on quite a few cars myself. When I got rid of my CRX [VTi] some bloke [gurpaal or something] came round took it for a test drive then told me he'd buy it and not to sell it to anyone else, he told me he'd collect it a couple of days later. So round about the time that he's due to collect the car my girlfriend sees his car driving past slowly outside [she recognised the car], about 10 mins later I get a call from him saying that he'd just got his mechanic to have a quick look around the car [bullshit] and that he said my car is only worth £1000 [a good £600 less than the price we shook on]. The cheeky bastard then went on to say that he'd still buy the car but only if I'd take £1000 and tried to 'tempt' me by saying he had it all in cash ready. I told him where to stick his cash. :gun2:

    I'm no Subaru expert, but I believe the standard 1998 turbo impreza is about 215bhp. I'm guessing it's lighter though?

    Hope you get the sale you need soon.

    I've had 6 subaru's all together now and i can honestly say they are the best car i've ever owned, the problem is they are all about the driving experience and awesome power and not about comfort and class, and thats why i'm going to an S3. I wanted a car that still had some go but at the same time was classy looking, handled good, comfortable to drive and also return better mpg.

    Standard scooby's are around 218bhp, my one is around the 260 mark, i know that the S3 wont compare to the scooby but thats not why i'm buying one, so i'm not bothered.

    Nice scooby mate. Time wasters, sometimes you've just gotta tell them where to go.. Selling a car a few weeks ago and he offered me about 2 grand under the asking price, i just told him to get off the property and dont waste peoples time. "Can i take it out for a spin then" pricks.

    Out of interest, do Subarus rust easily? I noticed from your built thread that there was alot of rust underneath the front bumper when you swapped it.

    It's a buyers market out there, and it's very slooow at the moment, so you are going to get the odd time waster or two.

    No, subaru's are really solid cars but for some reason the bumper bar rusts on them. Common fault, but apart from that no rust anywhere
