    Re: anybody else here into subarus??

    I like them but doubt i could find one that i could afford that hadn't been modified with stupid exhausts etc or that had been looked after by its many owners. Plus i drive like a tw@t so would likely crash it anyway...

    I did have a test drive of a Lancia Delta Evo1, now that was a nice motor but kept trying to change gear with the window winder

    Re: anybody else here into subarus??

    Had a P1 but the missus went and got herself up the duff. So new arrival forced sale.Looked standard but looks can be decieving.
    Would take anything at the light grand prix and cruise comfortably on the motorway.
    And was quicker than the local cops focus st.

    Re: anybody else here into subarus??

    They fit rear view mirrors on RS4's as standard here so you can watch scoobys dissappear into the horizon... have had a few scoobies try and overtake me... just hold them alongside until they have to back off because of on coming traffic and then floor it and laugh as they become a tiny spec in my mirrors... and dont see the need for a fly catcher on the bonnet either.. haha

    ha ha.. the RS4 will pass everything except a petrol station and a tax office.. what sort of bhp would be in an RS4.. seen a savage red one and what a sound off it when it took off... would love one but road tax here would be mad

    A standard 4.2l RS4 is 380-420 BHP depending on how well it's looked after.
    And the Irish road tax for a pre 2008 car is 1700 euro p/a .

    does that mean your gonna bring your van over to 'round about city' to burn some rubber

    50p a mile and that just about covers the diesel!

    Its not too bad at 26.5mpg, haven't managed to set the brakes alight yet as have with other vans, had a 140hp nissan primastar before that did around 29mpg, but this ones the extra long wheelbase one so can get 3m pipe in the back.

    Think they do a v8 petrol Brabus one, better start saving......

    Business partners got a 115 vito and if i'm not paying attention theres not much in it, 120 got an auto box so by the time its dropped a couple of cogs i've got some catching up to do, plus i don't like gunning it from a start as the tyres are 700 a set (after a balded the last ones in 16k miles)

    Might have to get it chipped though as i see the new ones got 220hp instead of 204hp!!!

    Theres always someone quicker
