1994 M reg 220 Coupe Turbo in nightfire red

Right
The car has been kinda up for sale for a bit now while I looked for a new car but now I've purchases the Impreza, I really need to sell this one to keep the Mrs at bay.

Here's the spec..

Just had some major work done:

Completely reconditioned head
New cambelt
Alternator belt
Klinger head gasket fitted.

The above cost the previous owner, Roy, over £600. He used to be a big member of these forums but seldom visits nowadays. What actually happened was that I sold the car to him after fettling it into an excellent state and then he got the above work done. I then bought the car back. Roy would have had the car back off me a couple of weeks ago if the money was there but it didn't happen. Perfect example of the shape the car is in mechanically.

Also:

New clutch around 1200 miles ago
Pretty much brand new toyo proxes were put on the front
Water pump (as this was leaking)
Radiator recored 8 months ago
Fully reconditioned turbo
Injectors cleaned.

Mods:
Mk3 dash
Boost guage fitted on a pillar mount
k&n air filter
Gbe evo boost controller set to 12psi
Tie bar poly bushes
Clear side repeaters
Silver mesh in grill and front bumper

Its on 94k but as you can see its just had a new top end. Roy had done about 30 miles after this was done before I took it off his hands and I've done less than 1k since err, October I think!!!!!!

The paintwork is in pretty good condition, a few small spots and blemishes and one scratch along with a slightly bubbly spoiler but what coupe hasn't?

Right now, I'm just replacing the drovers door handle as this is broken (a common fault if you know the 200's). This is being srpayed as I write this!

If you are seriously interested in this excellent example, please get in touch. If you don't have the money right now or are just curious, please don't get in touch for the sake of it.

I'll be happy to answer any questions for you.

I'd like offers for the time being. PM me if you want to talk more.

Thanks for looking.

Matt

I don't know either mate.....but nevermind...

the prices of these tubbys are very subjective depending on the condition etc etc and ppl aren;t sure if ure buying a minter or a shed....

fortunately, both myself and the previous owner know all there is to know about this one. The previous owner was so confident of the condition, he wants to buy it back himself but as is the way, currency is the factor.

If anyone wants to know anything, please get in touch. I'm after around 2k for it which I believe it's worth in this condition.

the gearbox is ok going up all the gears and doesn't make any noises whatsoever....

There is an occasional lazy synchro changing down to 2nd but when I drive it now, it never happens - must have got used to stopping it happen.

If you're interested I can show you what i mean.

AFAIK, there's no rust round the arches - I can check again but it's hammering down outside!!!

I'm not claiming ridiculous BHP figures just cos of the slightly increased boost but it must at least be what is quoted as std power....I'm, sure a search on here would find out what that specifically is.

It does drive nicely and pulls well - my mate was well impressed when he drove it back from london when I picked up my impreza.

Got an earthing fault somewhere which is maiing the boot light come on but that's no biggie...just a case of finding the wire to blame.

If you want to come see it or ask any questions, PM me.

Cos it really should go, I'm open to sensible offers.....
