Floss's Impreza was created by Andyfloss
My brother had a blob eye a couple of years back and i always loved the look of it so decided i want one. I wanted a standard as possible one and i found this one. [/COLOR]
2004 .. good service history. 128k on the clock but had a full rebuild at Subaru at 80k costing the previous owner a hefty sum.
Picked up a backbox and midpipe for it for £30 so have no midbox now and i hollowed out the cat under the car.. got that nice rumble to it now. Dropped the oil as well with a new filter so its running much better... spark plugs are next on the list. Ordered a New filter, new headlights/sidelights/interior lights to get that ice white look.
Saw black headlights all over the net and hated the orange in mine so set about doing that yesterday... quite pleased with the results and only took about 2 hours ... mainly waiting for the paint to dry :-) looking for coilovers and some alloys next.. id like some XXR's :-) then STI bumper and wings hopefully and possibly a full respray in white.
Couple of pics below.. but a few questions if i may

Best spark plugs to buy for it?

Do coilovers off a Saloon fit my Wagon.. if so what years are the bugs the same?

Got a HKS SSQV on order.. are they ok with dump valves or do they throw a wobbly?

Thanks
Andy

Nice motor, wagon too :)

Nice job with the headlights, the black looks so much better on these. As for spark plugs I think most jap motors go with NGK. But if you speak to Mark down at Thwaites Developments in Warwick he'll supply/set you up with the right ones. To be fair it's not a job I'd look forward to on these :)
Coilovers I'd def recommend the BC Racing ones, but make sure they're set up right by someone who knows what they're doing. Makes such a big difference!

Yeah he does everything on mine as well, Mark also gets in a specific setting of bc's you don't normally get. He requests for certain springs to be fitted to the coils and knows how to set them up well.
