    Sorry but thats your opinion!! I have heard plenty of horror stories with jap imports and had problems myself with an MR2 Turbo!!
    Would not touch one with a barge pole!! (Yes you can get problems with uk ones to) but less likely. Japs use 100 RON fuel any import should be mapped as soon as it leaves the boat for our fuel.

    I would agree with ntrainor! having owned both jap and uk cars-- JAP stuff is faster and better spec'ed from the factory

    Yeh everyone is entitled to their opinion but faster does not necessarily mean better.
    People say they are better specced but for me if I was buying second hand the most important thing is a full service history and hpi check.
    By the time you get it remapped to run on lower grade fuel, pay extra insurance, fit a rear fog, underseal, radio wont work,no immobiliser, warranty problems its hardly worth it. I also find it very suspicious that they all come in with such low miles after sitting on a boat for 3 months.

    Thats because all your imports are pre 97 Will. 100 ron fuel did not hit Japan until late 97!

    Only JDM for me, they are not that much bother at all. I would consider a STI Type \uk but wouldnt even bother with a JDM or UK Wrx.

    Look fair play to you for having a very nice Subaru at 19 and sorry you have to sell.

    Regarding JDM spec in the early days they were more powerful and better speccedbut Japan had a 280 bhp max rule. As the years went by the UK spec cars caught up like the P1 (280 bhp), WR1 and RB320 that put out more than 320 bhp with the correct emissions on our fuel.

    Many Subaru fanatics believe the 2 greatest Scoobys of all time were the RB5 and the P1 (both uk special editions).
