Hello to all, so I picked up a gc8 a few weeks ago from norcal, from a rs25 member on here.

The cars a 1995 one owner red Impreza L coupe with 168k when purchased, All stock, auto 1.8L, & comes with the safety package all wheel disc brakes & abs.

My plans are a full 2.5rs front end & trim, repaint it, then swap in a few years.

It’s my daily and already got a few things for it, though I think I may leave it stock until the paint work is ready. Enjoy.

Pics to follow

So as mentioned here are some photos..

Boarder town Colorado/Kansas
Somewhere in North east CA about an hour or 2 from Nevada.
In Reno

The car was driven back 3000 miles to jersey from NorCal. Along the way only issue was some old oil smoking off the exhaust from a previously fixed oil leak.

As for the plans.. weíll parts are starting to pile up

I have a ton more on the way.. Iím really in need of front aero guards as well.. have rears in the mail but itís next to impossible to find the front even in Japanese portals. If anyone has any leads for the front aero guards let me know I donít wanna paint until I have everything.

Also as for wheels right now, I have a set of 17x7.5 work vs ss wheels that have been sitting so I did order adapters and gonna test them out.

For suspension Iíd like to find some oem jdm sti struts / springs for cheap for now.

Lastly, hereís a teaser of some of my other cars..
2000 Renault Clio sport (half caged, hpde/track prepped, made 184whp before manifold & new map)
1989 Suzuki Samuri (100% rust free)

2002 Tacoma (78k Miles, auto v6 trd, FOR SALE)
2005 ram 3500 diesel dually (truck for life hopefully)

126p's look like so much fun. I've been tempted to import one for the last few years. Why the 2018 Megane and not the Alpine A110? 😉

I’m selling 3 of them once I get tittles.. one through bring a trailer, one as a facebook raffle, and one probably on eBay or word of mouth

Also the Megane is my daily, I before had a 2015 Clio as my daily.

honestly I forgot his sn as I actually called him I think not PM.. the ad may still be in the classifieds. The guy has a ton of L’s and Rs’s so I’m sure he chimes in on the forums often
