  1. Dear all, Just over 3 years back I purchased my 2007 Impreza WRX from Subaru approved used. At the time, as this was my first Scooby, I was somewhat apprehensive, even though I had a 12 month warranty from Subaru. Well, over 3 years have passed and I have to say I have loved every minute of ownership. In all that time I have never even changed a bulb. Runs beautifully and a real pleasure to own. Honestly, I could wax lyrical here but suffice it to say I am proud and privileged to own this Subaru and I love her Now looking forward to another Autumn and Winter where I can laugh at the weather forecast and pray for Snow ! Subaru... the horizon is closer than you think Cheers Dave

    I Be A Bit Mad...

    A brave man indeed, best of British on your quest, I have a notion to take mine on a run to a Nordic country, in Winter naturally

    Whats The Best Track?

    I would love to have a few laps of Spa or Monza, it's one thing driving them on a simulator, but having a day to howl your Scoob around there... quality

    While I was at Adams bros ( Subaru ) Aylesbury on Tuesday, they have a WR1 for sale which I thought to mention on here. Just because it is about the nicest model I have come across, almost mint with less than 18K miles. They are asking a lot, but she is a beauty. Number 485 of the 500 built, I believe. If your'e passing, well worth a look. Cheers Dave

    Which Type Of Fuel Is Cool?

    I only run Shell V power Nitro +, if you join Shell's driver club you build points and eventually end up with money off vouchers. I am defo seeing better MPG running Shell. That said, to obtain best performance/MPG you also need to be using high quality oil. Cheers David
  10. Dear all I had the above engine oil fitted at the end of April and as yet have not had to add a single drop to top up. Prior to the Petronas, I had run Fuchs Titan and used a little, but I have to say very impressed with Petronas. It is not the first brand you think of when considering an oil change, and if I did not already have 5ltrs of Eneos Sustina at home for the Winter, I would definitely continue to run the petronas. Just wanted to share this with you David
  11. Hello mate I am no expert, I have a 2007 WRX which I bought from Subaru ( approved ) 2 years back and never had a problem. To be honest, I would tread very carefully. If you have problems with these, it can prove costly. Have someone check this car over 100% and give it a thorough test drive. ANY issues at all, walk away and look at another source. Cam belt at 60k a must. Without history and/or warranty, you open yourself up. There are always lots of Impreza's available so take your time dude. Good luck

    With a Subaru I do not think you can be obsessed when it comes to care of the engine ! After some time looking at various oils ( I have looked at them all ) I have decided to go with Eneos ( Japan ) Sustina 5W 30. It is available on Ebay, however the top of the range Sustina in 5W 30 must come from Poland. All the best Dave

    Finally Picked Up My Subaru!

    Chris With oil it is " horses for courses " what suits my factory standard WRX may not suit a modded vehicle. That said, I have always used Fuchs Titan 5W 30 fully synthetic. It is a little cheaper than Castrol Edge or say, Shell Helix Ultra. Even with the sub zero temps we are having, on start up my WRX is very quiet and very smooth. I am sure most on here would happily recommend any of these. Opie oils is a good place to look, and get a recommendation. Cheers Dave
