    Red face scooby virgin help

    I sold my supra tt a few months ago because my finances had changed and i had to get something cheaper and more practical to run, i didnt realy want to sell it but i just had to at that time, anyway now things have changed again but i fancy something a little different,i have been offered a 94 wrx wagon import with 25000 miles a couple of parking dings, but thats about it totaly standard car for 3000, now not knowing the market on these cars i couldnt tell you if that was a bargain or not, there was however a vibrating sound when going down hill using the gears to slow down, maybe exhaust yes? the car went like stink and was very solid and smooth, 1st time in a wrx or subaru, i could tell you anything about a supra even down to the length of the waterpump bolts bla bla but when it comes to scoobys im a virgin im afraid so any advice would be greatfully recieved, and just one more thing just what is the difference btween a wrx 2000 turbo and a 2000 turbo
    thanx

    Are you in England? If so many people here may have difficulty helping you because the WRX just only came to the US in 2002.

    i think a turbo impreza is an impreza with a turbo added aftermarket while a wrx impreza comes from the factory with a turbo.

    No, Subaru supplied a turbo Impreza in certain markets as a type of equipment level.

    My advice is to make sure the car has a MOT within recent memory and a prayer of making it onto the road semi-legally in a reasonable amount of time. Other than that, do three things:

    1. Have an independent specialist look it over closely
    2. Do a search here for "how to buy a used WRX" and "aspiring" as keywords; you should come up with a post of mine showing how to evaluate a used Subaru and all the steps to take.
    3. Go to scoobynet.co.uk, they're local to you relativley and they generally don't bite plus you can search their fora for answers before asking any questions anyway.

    There is also a WRX FAQ, look it up by Googling it. It has a list of model years that suffered specific problems (ECUs, piston slap, brakes, etc.) and a lot of other info about the cars in general.

    This a gray/Jap import I assume? Who didn't drive it all these years for it to have such low miles on the clock? Is there a FSH?

    OK so far so good. Do the searches I mentioned above and you'll get a bunch of info and it'll get you started at least. Spares should be widely available both new and used (check out Scoobynet) and there are plenty of aftermarket parts for the car too, though they're pricey.
