What made you buy this car? I have always liked Subaru Impreza's. The sound is so distinguishable and for me, they were powerful, unobtainable cars, but then again, I was super young so any powerful car was unobtainable. I love a modern car with its luxuries so getting a Subaru Impreza STI that had the modern features like, keyless entry; parking sensors and a parking camera; and power steering was a massive plus for me. It was also a hatchback which meant it wasn't a huge car but was big enough for my daily life. One massive reason why I chose this particular car though, is because it is the 330s model. Which means only 200 of them were ever going to be produced (I think they only ended up making 170-ish of them) and it had the added power over the standard STI model. It came with the Prodrive Performance Pack which included a Prodrive exhaust system, Prodrive engine tweaks and ECU, Recaro half leather & alcantara bucket seats, satellite navigation system and smart entry with push button start.


Best modification and why?

Hmm...that's a hard one. I have so many that I love, from the sound of the exhaust to how the lights light up at night.


What's next? Getting the cylinder 4 cooling mod kit installed to help prevent detonation and extend the life of the engine.


Dream car? Has to be the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
