I recently bought a WR1 from a small speacialist in Rotherham. I was told the car was totally standard but not being a WR1 or Impreza expert it was hard for me to tell every part.
Since i got it i noticed one or two things that have worried me into thinking its not standard! SO i then did some digging on the Internet and found the old WR1OC site and searched for my WR1 No.434!! To my horror i found a previous owner showing this with huge amounts of mods?
The suspension is KYB shocks with prodrive springs,front and rear strut braces.There is a rear spliter fitted which is a APR copy to channel the air under the car better.On the inside is the standard WR1 interior with the edition of a Alpine CD player(Not that you will listern to it much)It also comes with STI Genome Defi Gauges which show oil temp,oil pressure and boost complete with the controler for them.Most of the work has been done on the Engine and brakes. Engine Mods- Roger Clark Motorsport GT35 turbo with 1.5bar accuator and Turbo Jacket 800cc Injectors APS top mount Intercooler Custom 3" Exhaust with both Cats Replaced(still got them for MOT) Heat Wraped Stainless Manifold Custom 3"Turbo Pipe Wing mounted air filter Forge Dump Valve Oil catch can Simtek ECU remaped by JGM to around 380-390bhp at 1.5bar Brakes- Standard Brembo calipers Drilled and grooved Discs with mintex pads The tyres which are toyo Proxes and have at least 5mm of tread on them all,a few of the alloys have been kerbed slightly. The headlights have had a HID kit fitted which improves vastly on the normal lights that were fitted.
I have noticed after i bought it that the Hids are still fitted (arent these illegal) and the rear difuser is still there. Also the front disc only are grooved and drilled (are these standard??) Also the suspension is red (no idea if thats normal) but i cant see if its Prodrive standard or somehting else - Where should i look?
but from what i can see all the other mods are now gone? As the seller told me this was a standard car and i have insured it as standard am i at risk of being invalid on my insurance and also do i have any comeback to the seller?
Im really panicing over this and am now wondering if ive bought a complete dud?? and what to do with the insurance?I just hope its been restored back to standrad properly??
Any help is appreciated
