Thumbs up converting new impreza from left to right hand drive

the impreza that is sold in america with the 2.5 ltr turbo engine, is the dash any different to the jap spec dash for the 2ltr turbo as if they are not would consider buying an american version and changing it to right hand drive,also how much are the impreza 3 turbo in america

Yeah Learn how to speak English



Anyway,the STi's dash is the same as the WRX's, Theoretically you could convert it but you would need alot more than just a new dash,Why not keep it LHD and cruise the roundbouts that way,The birds will love it!!

Default answers - at least some

Hi !

LHD -> RHD conversion
I think you can do this but it might be cheaper to obtain full engine with accesories and put it in your car (wait a few months and there should be some salvaged ones available).

The price.
We do not know. Subaru is not releasing any info yet (wait for April).
The price is supposed to be between 30000 and 35000 but who knows.

new impreza in the states come with a standard 2.5ltr turbo engine thats what i want, and i will get repairable one then swap from left to right hand drive and just imagine how rare this car will be here, all i neeed is some of you lot to think the cars arent as powerfull as they are and smash one up




forgot to say my car is a prodrive enhanced impreza with other mods and is about 300bhp

The English dont get skylines as easily as you think. Im from england and all of my family lives over there and my uncle was pissed cus he thought we could get them here. I then told him no.. and he said that they arent easy to get over there either.. probably easier than here.. but not liek going down to your local store.

and as for a V8 mustang... You would probably pay more for the gas per month than you would for the car.. probably cost around $60 to fill it up.

If you all want skylines so bad come down to Australia.
They must have had a sale on them in japan because every ones got one. They almost out number rexs' and rexs are as common as horse ****! My car (96 GTB Legacy wagon) is still rare so i'm happy.
