    Intro My time with the Subaru Impreza WRX is almost up. On Wednesday I plan to take the car back to our local Subaru dealer and bid it a less-than-fond farewell, but a farewell nonetheless. I figure that’s a lot more respectful than just dumping it at their front door. If it sounds like I...

    Many have opined that Subaru is the new Saab. They do things a little different. They had a full AWD range when everyone else had it as an option. They offered turbos long before many others. They use a range of boxer engines, including a new boxer diesel. Somehow they managed to make ugly...

    The backstory is here. The update is that I figured it was best to tell the Subaru rep who I was, and that I wouldn’t be driving the car as a prospective customer at all, but rather using it for evaluation and comparative purposes. I didn’t want to accept the offer under false pretences...

    Does anyone have any experience of these? Searching the forums there are lots of opinions on WRX flavours etc., but not of the non-turbo variety. The missus has started a new job which will require some lugging of stuff (mainly fabric reels) around places in the Worcestershire countryside -...
