    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...
