    Talking Returning Impreza 1.6 Owner In Dublin

    Hi ya'll.

    I just bought my second Impreza. It's a 2006 baby blue 1.6 Xi. I still need to get her setup. (Pic's will follow soon) She came with with 17" Rims, a short Air Ram and a huge Muffler that wakes the neighbors. He also fitted a fake blow off valve speaker. (That was the first thing I pulled off. I am so excited to work on her. I will be relaying on u guys knowledge a lot. My previous car was an 06 RX8.

    Eventhough she was a blast to ride. The MPG was terrible. On a full tank I would not get close to 300km. But I always wanted to drive one so I had my fun with it.

    Welcome! I was always tempted by RX8, but the consumption had me cured...
    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.
