subaru sti : On the weekend I was driving with the old man down Warrigal Road inMelbourne when I see parked out the front of Zega (place that importsall type of go fast cars from Japan) a Subaru STi coupe. I thought Iwas seeing things, so we did a U-turn and went back and sure enoughthere it was, a Prodrive blue STi WRX coupe with the gold wheels. I'mnot sure if it was a version 3 or 4. Anyway the old man goes inside totalk to the dealer and he goes $65,000 on the road. Apparently the carhad been complianced but the dealer didn't tell us how he got itcomplianced. The old man thought $65,000 was too much seeing as Subaruare bringing the Version 5 STi and selling them for around $60,000, andthis will include a warranty, so we left.Does anyone know how the dealer could have got the car complianced?I'd like to know that too ... probably some bodgy "rally"registration that could get you yanked off the road so quickyour nose'd bleed ...Probably a personal import which does not need a low volume compliance.
subaru sti : is it possible to import a subaru STI or RB5 right hand drive to Holland,and can i drive with it orhas it to be Left hand drive ? ( do i have to change it or not ??? )Here in Holland they are not selling it ? what to do ?From: ()Subject: Re: import subaru sti Newsgroups: Date: 1999/12/28 On Wed, 22 Dec 1999 22:31:09 +0100, "Patrick" wrote:Why would you want an RB5? It is exactly the same as the Stars 25 asreleased in Holland...plus 17in wheels and PIAA driving lights inplace of the foglights. Would you buy a Stars 25 for £25,000? I knowpeople in the UK who have imported the Stars 25 in LHD form for lessthan 2/3 of that price!If you are thinking about the RB5 plus Prodrive Performance Pack thenthere is nothing theoretical in stopping you getting the PPP for any1999 or 2000 model Impreza. It depends on whether your dealer networkin Holland is able to offer it. I know that Prodrive have been tryingto market themselves in Europe with the importers so perhaps a bit ofcustomer pressure would help it along?The STi are quite different, as will be the P1 and only available inRHD format. Again press your dealers as the chances of a LHD versionof the P1 is slim but needs a customer base willing to buy it.

subaru sti : Bowe pips Morgan by one-hundredth in openingsession of crucial Nations Cup round.JUST one-hundredth of a second separated John Bowe, in a Ferrari, andGeoff Morgan, in a Viper, on the opening day of a crucial seventh roundof the Australian Nations Cup Championship at Victoria's Phillip IslandGrand Prix circuit today.Championship leader Bowe set the faster lap time in official practice butthe hair's-breadth gap to Morgan suggested an intense battle is in storefor three races on Sunday that could effectively decide the title.Morgan is third in the championship and four points behind Porsche driverJim Richards, who is 35 points behind Bowe.With a total of 181 points available this weekend, the championship iswide open, but Morgan knows the fast, open spaces of Phillip Island offera better chance for his eight-litre Viper to steal points from his rivalsthan the narrow confines of the Gold Coast Indy street track, venue forthe eighth and final round next month.This weekend is so important to Morgan's chances of winning his firstNations Cup championship that he has also cross-entered to drive theLamborghini Diablo of Paul Stokell, in case the Viper is unable to startthe races for any reason.
subaru sti : "This is a critical weekend for me. The Viper's at its best here and if Ican't make up the points on Jimmy and John I'll have my work cut out todo it at Surfers Paradise," Morgan said.The big GT sports cars were spectacularly fast today, averaging almost170 kmh and reaching more than 270 kmh on the straight.Stokell was third-fastest, ahead of Richards, Tony Quinn and PeterFitzgerald, all in identical Porsche GT3 Cup coupes.The Nations Cup and the deciding round of the Australian GT ProductionCar Championship will be among the highlights of an 18-race program forthe PROCAR Champ Series weekend.The GT Production Cars did not practice today, but the faster GTPerformance competitors also saw close times in their sessions.Victorian David Wood was fastest in a Subaru STi sedan, ahead of BobPearson (Mazda RX-7) and Brett Peters (Subaru STi).V8 BRute Series points leader Warren Luff set the fastest time in a FordFalcon XR8, comfortably ahead of James Brock in a Commodore.Holden drivers also were third, fourth and fifth - Steve Robinson, GaryMacDonald and Gary Young covered by only three-hundredths of a second.
