    Newbie from Cork

    Hi all! After loving Subaru's from a far for a long time I recently decided to purchase. I searched for a couple of months and eventually found a 2005 blue one with gold alloys that met what I was looking for. Delighted I was. Needed some small car park dings repaired but besides that was in great nick. Mechanically more importantly. So I was looking forward to my first post on this and join the scooby club.
    Unfortunately since I got it someone has taken the front off it. Had it a month, a month of fun and now it's written off. So instead of saying hi and getting involved in the conversations here I'm asking does anyone want any parts for it! I'll post pics later so you can see the damage. Basically I havent looked at the engine yet (my mechanic is due over the weekend) but bonnet, 2 wings, front bumper etc is no good. She skimmed the whole front of it so the wheels escaped damage too. Anyone need anything message me. What I can't remove I'll get my mechanic too

    Im always seems to be asking the same question, but is it not save-able? Sure its only the panels or there is more that the eyes cant see

    Welcome to the club! Sorry about your car, it's best to cut your loses and break it. It's nicer to own a scooby that you're confident that it hasn't been in a ditch.
