Hi from Spain
I am a potential owner of my first kei car, a Subaru Vivio from 1993, a 5 door 4WD.
It is intended to replace a 1993 fiat panda, which, although very capable, struggles with our rural location.
I have not confirmed the purchase of the very tidy Vivio, but I shall of course be posting pictures and how-tos once I start getting my hands dirty!
Here it is, now in Mallorca!
I am certain that it is unique on the island....
It won't be lonely, it has a bigger Brother, our trusty old Subaru Forester.
Here is the beast, now fully part of the family. it is noisy, raucous, but quick if you get to speed and dont use the brakes, and basically one of the best handling small cars I have driven on our many rounadabouts, a real eye opener! The roof spoiler just makes it,
And best of all it looks like its big brother from underneath - it is a Subaru, and not just by name!
I am quickly wearing down the splodgy Winter tyres it came with, soon to have some 13 inch Nissan Micra steelies with 165s... and a new stereo.
And perhaps I could add an AMR300 supercharger,,,?
I just detailed the engine bay. as I love tinkering without getting my fingers dirty.
Happy Kei car owner.

Hello and welcome!
Nice looking Vivio. I'm guessing it's got an EN07E? Always had a thing for the Supercharged Clover 4 engines though. With some induction tweaks they can sound insane!
Looking forward to seeing your progress!
