    Engine must be in excellent condition, and be driveable etc. Bodywork I do not mind being shabby, it is to do hill climbing in.

    Let me know if you find any

    Do not want a wagon!

    Is that 3K with or without VAT?

    As far as I was aware, vat didn't apply to second hand items [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I would ideally like it to be cheaper than 3k to be honest, but I aint found anything yet. Hence I thought I would post on here.

    Being piccy Christian, Vat does apply to second hand items on ocassion, particularly if you buy a 2nd hand car from a dealer [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    Fooook me Christian.... you try to sell used stuff at almost new prices then when you're buying you want the world on a stick for 10p .

    Cheaper than 3k and excellent condition don't go together. Get real..... or tell me if you find one for that price .

    fair enough, I can use a vat 401 form (if I recall), which allows me to purchase the car from the dealer without paying vat. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Not really, as I said the engine has to be in excellent condition, I don't care about how shabby the bodywork is, or the inside, as it would be stripped anyway for hill climbing. As long as it drives well, and the engine/turbo/gearbox is fine.

    Such things do exist, I did find one for 3750, but out of my price range.

    But if the car is 3750... that's 25% over your budget. Hardly close. The RA mentioned about sounds ok for 3400 but it's had accident damage. If the exterior and interior are shabby i'd expect the engine not to be in excellent condition either. Infrequent oil changes etc.

    Why not hill climb your current car? After all that's getting on a bit isn't it, but has a few mods to make it fairly quick . Don't you have a hairdressers car for normal road use if the Subaru gets too 'competition' orientated?

    Import one from Japan yourself.. cheap as chips..

    You could always just hill climb your STi, after a few events it should meet your criteria!!
    worth less than 3k, shabby body work, interior stained.. cannot guarentee the engine bit, not sure if it is in excellent condition before you start [img]smile.gif[/img]

    The engine is producing lots and lots of torque and power

    I imported my sti myself, back in 1999, so I could do that again. I will prob leave it now anyway, as the last hill climb is on bank holiday monday, and wanted to buy one to use it for that. I have plenty of time to find one now, so if any of you see one pop up for cheap, let me know please.
