    Hi from Cork

    Hi everybody,

    I'm Rafa from Spain, living in Cork for the last four years. Been reading for a while as I always liked Subarus, but now it is about time for me to get one.

    Actually on the lookout for a GC8 sti, couple of nice units on donedeal slipped from my hands but hopefully I'll get a good one soon. Also contemplating to import from Japan/UK but a bit afraid of a big VRT or not doing it right.

    Cheers.

    Welcome along, keep an eye on donedeal they do come up now and again but to find a clean one that doesn't need work is hard

    Try Imprezas For Sale on facebook, all imprezas that come up for sale on ebay they advertise them there and mainly all in uk.
    Theres one sti type r in blue for sale on scoobynet in uk with few mods and tasty wheels over 6k sterling i think

    Thanks for the welcome lads. I'm talking to the owner of ad below at the moment, will go see it at the end of the week. I also have a look everyday at the auctions in Japan. Would you recommend JDM Auctions Watch for bringing a car over? UK at the minute is the last option I consider unless something really good come up.

    Type r and type ra in that order are the top preference.

    While I wait to get my Subaru I leave a pic here of the little fella that I have parked in the shed in Spain, a rare polo G40

    Thanks for all the welcome posts lads. Actually talking with he owner of the car in ad below, will view it on Friday, what do ye think? Also keeping an eye on Japanese auctions. Have any of you have experience with JDM Auctions Watch? At the minute, UK import is the last option that I consider.

    Priority is type r and type ra in that order.

    Many thanks for all your welcome posts. I'm actually talking to the owner of a blue 1998 Sti Type RA V-Limited in Ennis, will view it on Friday, the ad is on donedeal but I tried to post it here a few times yesterday and the posts just don't show up. (Do I need to reach a number of posts to put links or pics?)

    Also keeping an eye on the Japanese auctions trough JDM Auctions Watch, any of ye have experience with them? UK import at the minute is the last option that I consider.
