Post Impreza model

Where could I find a MY2000 Impreza coupe model that isn't a race car?

I want a model of one that looks like mine. Silver, without all the extra lights, air intakes (snorkles?), HUGE wing, higher suspension, etc, etc...

In other words, one that isn't a race car.

Do you know where I could find one?

Just look for an Impreza L coupe. They are the plain jane model of the Impreza. None of that fancy racin stuff that you don't like.

AUTOart's 22B. Its 1/18 scale and rally blue coupe. But the details are perfect right down to the carpet as I told some people this weekend stick your finger in there and check it out. I think its carpet is better than my real car. I've never seen a silver one but would love to have one.

I have a 2000 Silver RS coupe, no mods. Oh, but it's a Canadian model...only regular-size fog lights. Why do you want another one?

Whoops, I misunderstood what you meant by model. I am also interested in finding one.

^jynx^ That's a good idea. Where do they sell those? I went by a Hobby shop here and they didn't have one. Maybe I wasn't asking for the right thing.

There is a company, I don't remember the name off the top of my head. The name starts with an H, it is a japanes company, something like Hashika? Quality on par with Tamiya, and prices too.

I have their Impreza WRX Street version Sedan. Just about exact match for the US street sedan, except for the hood vents, and being RHD...

You may want to look into this.
