My new TOWING weapon of choice!

Its been a long time looking, but at last I have 1999 T reg mica green Subaru Impreza 2000 turbo (wagon), completley standard just as I wanted (except for indicators and prodrive backbox) - it has a removeable towbar too! oh and the all important AWD!

I'm going to wash it for the first time today in my lunchbreak,

anyway I wont bang for on ages, people here that might have owned one can vouch for the boxer engine, its genius!

Now time to flog the other cars and get me some TUBES!!

I had a Subaru. It ended up known as the Clown Car because bits kept falling off it. It repeatedly broke down, and each time cost almost enough to make it worth just throwing the car away. Probably the most expensive motoring I have ever done.

Still, I'm sure yours will be a paragon of virtue!

Won't an Impreza with tubes on it look a bit odd?

Interesting to see you have the estate version - they actually handle slightly better than the saloon due to a slightly longer wheelbase.

They are stunning to drive but they feel very flimsy to me - wouldn't fancy a prang in one - unless it's got a full cage fitted!!!
