The Story

Picked this EU spec STi up Feb ‘22 and started my build. The focus was to keep it clean, unique and reliable. Car was completely stock and very well take care of, so it was a fresh platform to build. As I am in Germany and their regulations are fairly strict for modifications, that has been a challenge to get the right parts that will pass inspection…

This is my 5th Subaru, always loved the VA body and got lucky to pick this one up completely factory.! Keeping this one fairly simple, but clean with only the best parts…
