  1. I've had the RA for 5 and a half years was close to selling her last year, but that thought went out my head pretty quickly when I figured out I wouldn't be happy driving any other car btw, i love this smiley!

    ps3 home theme idea?

    great idea, I'll mention it to the charity and I still pmsl with the goat touching thing Imy
  5. scary to see that things havent improved in 2 months - the last post on this thread was in March this year but they read like they were written yesterday Its so expensive to fill up. We're driving the RA at a snail's pace and in constant fear of having to put fuel in her again. Takes the fun out from being behind the wheel

    How Great Is Your Impreza?

    I had to do a 300 mile round trip for a 30 minute meeting today. Client goes to me "did you drive up just for this?" I go "yup, and I dont mind " I love the burble from the RA and get a nice rumble, even at 60 mph. I don't even get het up about folk that overtake, I know the power is there if I need it. managed to do it in just over a tank too!

    Scooby Ball Raffle

    I'd like to nominate the Colin McRae Vision. The charity is now established and has started donating money to fund equipment purchases. Appreciate that the McRae Gathering did a big push for this but it always gets me that the lives of 2 little boys were lost in the helicopter accident as well as Colin. imy btw - what happened to the "Clubman of the Year award 2009"? Has it been awarded?

    Look What I Found In My Boot Today

    i had the same with the RA. Also found a lot of water in the bit where you store the jack (on the left hand side of the boot), think it was coming in through the rear lights or the spoiler. Not been able to find the source yet as the only option Grant suggested was for me to climb into the boot (RA rear seats don't fold down) and he hose the car from the outside so I see where the water is coming in
  11. I usually run the RA in V-Power (dont get Tesco 99 up here). Had to fill with Tesco last summer when we went to Elvington and found the same as what the OP said in his first post - the car felt less responsive and sounded rougher than normal. Gary, you'd better get a Shell V Power drivers club
  12. great to see this in the flesh, the pictures don't show how epic this has become. had to lol at this bit about the harnesses., I can relate

    Type Ra Specs?

    just to confuse you even more I have a RA and she's got electric windows and air con owners were able to select stuff like central locking, electric mirrors etc etc from a ticklist when they ordered their RA so each car is slightly different in creature comforts. as for it being revvy, I love the short shift gearbox and was taught to shift up at 3000-3500 rpm because of the gearing. i've done loads of motorway miles and the revs dont bother me, i'm used to it now and love listening to the burble. best thing is to view and test drives the models that you've talked about and get a feel for each variant. the type-ra website has been pointed out to you, have a look through that to get an idea of what is available. imy
