Default End of the Impreza in the UK

Sorry if repost.

RIP Subaru Impreza - PistonHeads

End of an era in the UK. Won't happen here (yet) as we don't have the same road taxes on CO2 and Subaru's and fuel are relatively cheaper. Its sad when you think back to the days of Prodrive tweaked Imprezas and their success in the WRC with McRae and Burns.

With the BMW M Sport 135i being £3000 cheaper - not surprised.

Though in those very early days they didn't sell WRX's in the UK....Aust had them before the Poms...

Certainly don't have to be a genius to work this one out.

Excepting why we pay crack price for equivalent BMW in AUS.

Surprising, I was under the impression they were quite popular in the uk . . .

Actually the M135i is very comparable pricewise to the STi Spec R, ordered one to replace my 2010 135i in spite of the fact that I am not a huge fan of the tosser factor that goes with BMW, the car though is just superb.

We pay crack money for all cars in Australia, particularly those made in Europe.

Naah don't stalk you - just live suprisingly close, and commute past on the bike twice a day.
