Marty bought the (2nd) best Subaru ever made

8 169
There's one particular car that gets the juices of Subaru fan boys bubbling and that is a 2 Door STI. Not to be confused with the highly collectable and way more expensive 22B, this Version 5 STI is the newest addition to the Mighty Car Mods Garage, it's far from perfect, which makes it perfect to modify! Today we take it for a test drive around the track.

I sold my wide body Type R last year to a company who raffled it off as a prize. It was amazing only 34k miles on the chassis but a forged engine pushing out 420hp with the 6 speed box. Interior was unmarked and it had the Lamco gauge set and boost pod... It was mental.

The 22B is obviously the best Impreza, but you’re way off on that lump being a close second. If there were to be a close second, it would be the Prodrive produced road-going Imprezas. The GM8/GC8 is the best looking of the standard bunch though, I’ll give you that. Glad you didn’t buy that horrible pigmy Impreza or that frog-eyed monstrosity. I think they were all pissed when they designed those two. Too much saki with the afternoon noodle, I suspect. Bloody executives!

P.S. no rattles? You want to wipe the spunk out of your ears Moog, they rattled and squeaked straight from the factory! To claim that an old girl like this doesn’t rattle or squeak is absolute nonsense-gobbledygook-horseapples. Either that or the previous owner filled every available space with concrete. How dare you say such moronic things in front of a massive audience, some of which will know full well the sound effects that come free with any and every Impreza. While we’re on about sound effects, why do you make music that sounds like Alvin And The Chipmunks making a comeback record??

You can actually turn off anti hijack mode. I use to turn them off alot of the time for customers. How do i know? I done my apprenticeship there. Worked on wrx and sti's all the time. Became the wiz. Good cars would love a 2 door.

The P1 and RB5 are both higher up the impreza food chain than this, not just the 22B. These were 10 a penny in the UK.

Wait what? An STI with no rattle inside? Unbelievable! Then again, they creak and rattle way more at -20C with the plastics shrinking.

What is the model code, which should be on a plate next to left front strut tower. If it’s a JDM model it should read GC8E2DD. WRX Type R STi V4, they came with DCCD, (drivers control centre diff) couldn’t see any evidence of this. So if it hasn’t got that then you have a watered down version of the 2nd most special version, also came with a close ratio gear box. They were homologated models.

There were a ton of 4-door WRX STi’s imported here in the UK, and they were always rated at 280 - 300bhp. Definitely not the ‘gentleman’s agreement’ power limit. No manufacturer really stuck to that anyway. On paper, yes, under the bonnet, heck no. The other special 2-door that was maybe only made for the UK market was the WRX STi P1, by ProDrive who did the WRC team cars. Awesome machines.

I've got a similar alarm system in my Bugeye WRX Wagon. The code switch dies after a few years, they're cheap metal domes that fatigue and break.
What's even better is taking it to a garage and explaining how the system works. You can guarantee that 10 minutes later the alarm will be going off and you'll have to go back and sort it out. It does make MOT's very fun.

First rule of owning a Subaru: acknowledge your car will break and not work right after you buy it. Second rule: understand how much money you're going to spend on fixing and rebuilding on a weekly basis.
