Default The making of Frayz's Prodrive edition V7 STI

Thought some of you guys might like to see this, i hope you enjoy reading.

Well at the tender age of 21 after owning my Ford sierra saphire cosworth for 2 years it was time to move on. The car was of reasonable stage 3 spec and was running 350+bhp.
It was my pride and joy and an absolute thrill to own and drive. I was offered the right money at the right time and the cossie finally had to go.

Heres a pic of the old love of my life.



Now obviously i had the major task of filling the cosworths shoes. I wanted something newer, better built and basically the most for my money.
Having explored the likes of escort cossies, evos and skylines etc. I finally decided i wanted a Subaru. These represented the best value for money
I did what homework i could and it came down to a bugeye STI.

I wanted the 6 speed box, brembos etc... but above all it had to be black.

After a month or so of searching id found the car. It was based in Essex and was a totally standard, unmarked black Prodrive edition bugeye sti. She had one owner from new FSSH and only 21K on the clock.
The guy i bought it from was a city trader and used the train everyday. For this reason he simply didnt use the car enough and decided to sell.

After a few negotiations i was lucky enough to drive home with this.

The day after i picked it up.







The plan was to keep it as standard as possible, but as you can guess, that was not to be the case.

to be continued...
