The last manual subaru impreza

on Mon Jan 08, 2018 7:17 pm


Yeah I think the new version of the Subaru Impreza comes in petrol Auto only. So I got the previous version possibly the last available ever Impreza with a manual. So I think won.. I might, quite likely be completely mad though. What a Face

The last manual Impreza now has a cracked wind shield. My insurance doesn't cover it. There was a small stone chip that I got filled right in the wiper heater element bit at the bottom. So I got it filled, then parking outside, it got a bit hot I think and cracked more along the heater element and up a bit in the passenger line of sight. It's only on the outer part of the wind shield and not inside. So I think it's still water proof. I checked the forums and Subaru in the USA have been paying out for new wind shields. I'm not sure here so I'm asking Subaru. Their taking their merry time in answering.

Otherwise I would like a none Subaru wind shield without the heater element. This thing seems to the be the problem. Don't know if that's possible ?

I didn't know these had heater elements at all? Cool!

How is it not covered under insurance?

On a new vehicle? Even I get fully comp now. 3rd party just not worth the minimal saving now. Found out the hard way.

Nothing wrong with Autos - I found out this evening that the R is considerably quicker from 40 to motorway speeds than a 2016 Honda Civic Type R. Makes a better noise too........

You have just proved the reason for an manual. You are always in the gear. The Honda civic driver wasn't.

Better noise, they don't make Harley's with automatics.

Actually I was in 2nd / 3rd on the flappy paddles - as near the Jag gets to man gears.

well that's ok, you are..........(well alright, bi, but near enough) Very Happy

the flappy paddles on my 335D and 370Z were MUCH quicker at getting through the gears that allowing standard auto mode to do its thing
