dunno which model-but looks like version 4 to me.
what is the current market price?

those facing the LDP beside the Shell station? STi
version 1-3 is about 1991-1993, Version 4 is 94,
Version 5 is 96 and Version 6 is 97 onwards up to 99,
if i'm not mistaken as the years of Subaru producing
newer versions are quite complex, with the additional
Type RA, NA and NB.
The STi version 1-3 would probably fetch-up a price
slightly below RM100K. If u happen to view someone's
car who is selling, do let me know cause i would also
like to see it

Below 100K, would prob be a Ver 1 or 2, and remotely a
Ver 3. STIs would cost you a premium of about 15K, on
top of the base WRX.

Refer to The Star's paper under car for sale
classifieds, there's this person selling the WRX for
RM99K, 94/99, 16in" Enkei, Black. I called up, and he
claimed that it's a Version I. The thing that confused
me was that he also claimed the car churns out 260HP
which i don't think a Version I WRX can do that,
because he told me that it's a stock standard, no mods
being done. He's from a used-car dealer. What's your

Any WRX can churn out 260bhp, even the local Auto
Dunia models, rated at 210bhp. All a mater of turning
up the boost. Just a factor of how safe it will be,
that will be the question.
The Ver1 and 2, would normally have a TD05 turbine,
and these are rated to a max of 280-300bhp potential,
while the Ver3-6 have a smaller IHI-VF2x series,
equivalent to a TD04, which is rated to a lower hp
Please verify the version by the chassis number, and
we can trace the numbers to which year the car was
produced, and whether it is an STI or not.

WRX is a nice car to own but what about the
maintenance and spare parts ..is it a problem to
impreza owners? back in malaysia!!
Posted 29 July 2002 - 10:44 AM
Spare parts are always available back at Auto Dunia.
Correct me if i'm wrong, i heard that most of the
spare part shops in town doesn't have impreza basic
stuffs like oil filter, bushes, drive shafts, etc.
Since impreza is a performance car, u can always
look for its spares and accessories in Bandar Sunway.
It's a real haven there for car enthusiast including
Ivan Khong's workshop.
