Hopeful switch - Impreza Type R to S1

New kid in town ? Say hello to the Exiges.com massive.. Do you have an Exige ? Looking to buy one ? Sold one or just a fan ?

It took a while but finally picked her up last month.

Pity the bad weather is already here so will likely hibernate until the year with the plan to visit some tracks and see how she compares to the TypeR and work out if anything needs doing. The drive home from dealer was a motorway journey and although pretty dull drive I did try it on some local b roads. Steering is beautiful and what she lacks in torque is made up in spades when you work the engine.

Then you just have the way they look, pictures do not do them justice - the curves, how low and the laser blue is beautiful.

Spec is pretty basic:
- uprated discs, pagid blue pads, refreshed and coated swingarms, spitfire links
- 25k
- unmodified VHPD
