That 04 XT looks perfect.

What is a code 3, written off then fixed up again..?

I mailed the dude for the 04 already. Surely at that price its a steal. Pity it has no roof.

Code 3 is usually a written off vehicle by the insurance. Usually a prang or stolen and recovered. Thieves dont steal foresters, so its more then likely been in a prang.

Still looks like its in very good condition.

Busy reading up on making an SH9 and S-Edition.
I see they use a VF52 IHI Turbo for the S-Edition.
Is this the same one on the WRX..?

I would have thought that they stayed with the TDO4 and just retuned it like the Prodrive.

I think the WRX still uses the TDO4

Reading further, quite tricky for a conversion.

Guys prefer using the VF turbos.

Subaru is one of the only vehicles I know of that has a 500 000km service schedule. 150 000km is not much if the vehicle has been maintained. My Forester XT had 130 000km when I traded it and it drove like new.

no, that shape XT did not have the boot spoiler - only the current S-Edition/XT range came standard with the boot spoiler.
