    New guy from the UK here

    Hi all, my name is John and I am from the UK. I own a Model Year 2000 Impreza turbo, I have owned it for about 3 months now, I owned one about 3 years ago and regreted it when I sold it. I am a member of a UK forum, but I found yours by mistake and liked it so I registered. I hope to chat to you all in due course.

    Regards

    John

    The wheels have now been removed, they were only on the car for a weekm I noticed on Sunday that they were catching the rear wheel arch, The offset is 45, as they are 7.5" rims they pretruded over 1/2" further from the wheel arch. I am hoping that Rimstock who made the wheels can re machine the offset.

    Hi there, it has about 79000 miles on the clock, it sounds as most Scoobys do awsome, it looks very nice in the sunshine, but unfortunately in the UK this is very rare.

    Unfortunate? You are lucky to have one.

    Thanks for the welcome, you guys are a lot more friendly than the UK club guys, they dont seem to want to know new comers.

    I dont know if it happens in the US, but you drive along the road and other Impreza owners put their hand up as you drive past, like they are you mates. I went to a meet after work one day, initially there were 3 cars there including mine, not one put their hand up or spoke. It was only because I was a member with my previous Impreza that the organiser recognised me and spoke, otherwise I would have been ignored. It seems to me that unless you have a highly modified car they dont want to know you.
