    Hi all now this may sound like a strange request. Im in the process of buying a car from a dealers in Preston,which i was told a member on this site owned.I would like to find out if the owner still had the original bits that he took off of the car and find out if it would be possible to put the remap he had done back on as the garage would not px unless it was put back to factory spec ?.It is a wrx in wrb reg pk53 zsu.I live out at Worksop in notts and so the round trip is nearly 200 miles i really like the car but would love to found out more about her etc.Can anyone help please ?????? :) :)

    yeh it was my car - traded it for a new XC60
    Fancied a bit of a change :D

    The car is a good one - pm me if you want ant questions answering

    The car still has the ECUTEK map in it and has a tracker fitted so you'll only need to pay a subscription fee

    All bits sold but had it runnibg 310 bhp - didnt want to go silly with it and do any damage to the engine or gearbox

    The car is fine and has served me well from new - you wont go wrong with it :)

    It still has lowered springs fitted which I think gave it more attitude rest of the bits I left on are visual as u will already have seen.

    all the best

    Great to see the car go to a good home - not sure how I was going to feel when I parted company,



    I'll post some pictures of my scooby replacement next week.

    I'm off to Scotland to test it out along with testing my new bike on Ben Nevis :D
