First Imported to the UK May 2015 by Torque GT (Grade 4+) the car is an Impreza WRX STI Spec C WR Ltd.  It is a late “blobeye” variant using the widetrack chassis setup.  I fully expect that most of the people on here will know the specifics of this model better than I do.


Mileage on Import: 63k      Mileage on Purchase (Nov 2018): 79k    Current Mileage: 85k


Car was treated on the underside and cavity protected on import by Torque GT.


I am the 3rd UK owner.

Other Info

Original import documents all available along with the owners booklet and original JDM service history.  Almost every receipt and such is available and will come with the car.  MOT currently runs to 28/02/2022.


Cat 1 alarm and immobiliser with insurance installation certificate etc.


Car has been well looked after and properly maintained by specialists, and recently had over £2,500 spent on suspension maintenance and setup (including a new set of A052 tyres) in April 2021.


In 2020 the car had a windscreen out repaint on the roof (to address rust spots forming above the windscreen – which were very light and dealt with early as a result), a refresh of the boot lid (it had been marked  while in Japan by what I presume was the fitment of a STI style wing at some time in the past) and the straightening and repainting of the sills as the seams had been folded over in places.  I have pictures of the before and after.


At the same time due to an idiot, it also got a new rear bumper and number plate bracket due to a very low speed rear shunt (when I was about 200m from the bodyshop) that crushed the bracket and split the bumper in the slim section under the number plate.  I have pictures of all of the before after type stuff.


If you are a WR Ltd aficionado, I need to also declare that it no longer has it’s original WR Ltd branded front seats (removed by first UK owner).  It appears to have UK STI Ver 8 seats, which from the photos look to be identical but with an Sti logo.  I understand that it also does not have the WR Ltd specific gear knob, it appears to have an STI branded alternative which is as it came from Japan.


Now for the bad bit… The gearbox is starting to snatch and sometimes crunch 4th gear when worked hard and trying to shift very quickly.  I have been quoted for having the gearbox rebuilt and have factored this in lowering the asking price for the car.


I am looking for £18,000 as an asking price, and think in the current market this is a fair price for this car with the setup it has, and the overall condition it is in.


I will shortly upload a bucket load of photos to Googledrive into a folder that I can share with anyone who is interested in the car.
