I’ve owned this Forester STI for a few years now and have maintained and modified it myself to a high standard with good quality parts. As tends to be the case with cars I own, I have sort of run out of things I want to do with it now. Also, as I now have a small person, I am finding more often I have to park cars in places I don’t like leaving a car I care about. So it’s time for a change and I have bought a ropey old Skoda Yeti that will do fine, for now.

I always intended to keep this car for a while so when I purchased it I properly protected the underside with Dinitrol Protect Super 447 which is an overpaintable elastic anti-stonechip coating. I also used a clear rust proofing wax in all cavities and other exposed areas. This was not a quick ‘once over’ for show which is unfortunately often the case when this service is offered by an importer. I removed suspension components, plastic inner wings etc to protect the areas that are often neglected. Start to finish it took me 4 days. Lots of pictures and details here.

Godspeed G-hook front discs

Infotainment:
Android 7″ touch screen head unit with CD player, SD card reader, USB input, DAB radio etc
Full version of Torque app installed for live ECU data streaming via OBD2 reader
Also included OBDkey Bluetooth OBD reader as the JDM Subaru SSM protocol used is not supported by the usual sub £10 OBD readers, this one cost £110.
Focal Access 165AS speakers in front doors, OE tweeters replaced with Focal items and crossovers located in doors
Focal Auditor RCX-130 speakers in rear doors
Sound deadening added to doors

Various other servicing and repair jobs completed over the years include:
Replacement power steering hose and O-ring (common Subaru problem)
Fuel filter
Gearbox and diff oils
Regular engine oil changes with Millers fully synthetic oil and genuine Subaru filters
Coolant replaced with Millers OAT coolant plus some silicone rad hoses
I had the rear bumper repainted as it had been painted not particularly well by someone prior to my ownership
I’ve just serviced the car including Millers engine oil, Subaru filter and a Gates timing belt kit

The car also has a Witter tow bar fitted. This was fitted by the previous owner purely to take a bike rack. I have found it very useful on occasion, the few times I’ve used it being once to tow a car trailer with my sub 700kg Mini, once a quad bike and a few times towing small trailers of logs.

The odometer reading when the car was deregistered for export was JEVIC certified in April 2015. Certificate present in paperwork.
To prevent any confusion, below is the calculation for the distance the car has covered in miles.

Current odometer reading 126973 miles/km mix
Odometer reading at first MOT when imported 93071km

Miles covered in Japan: 93071km x 0.62 = 57831 miles
Miles covered in UK: 126973 – 93071 = 33902 miles

Total mileage: 57831 + 33920 = 91733 miles

Beware of any sellers doing anything different from this to cars with speedos that have been converted to read mph. If the speedo has been converted to mph (this is usually done at time of import) then the electronic odometer in these Subaru’s will start reading in miles too. Converting of the entire odometer reading will result in any distance covered in the UK having 1/3 of it’s true value removed. In the case of this car that would knock over 10000 miles off it’s true mileage!

If you have any questions or would like to arrange viewing please call or message me on 07863117450

The car is located in East Sussex near Battle, TN33.
