R2 just had service using genuine Subaru parts. As with all Subaru's plugs were a bitch to change. :
3litres of oil for an oil change including filter.
Plugs were shot at 16000 miles.
Just needs a good wash now and a vacumn clean out. :-\
Then back to work on the WRX to refit the power steering pump,wire in the boost gauge,drill the back bumper for the reversing sensors(charge drill first-3 hours) and clean that as well. Might look at the spare set of alloys to see if the tyres hold air or need replacing.

Hi Kei Man,
I'm considering an R2. I was just wondering how you found it for insurance and getting parts in the UK? Does everything need to be imported or do local factors or subaru dealers have parts? (or service parts at least).
Just to let you all know that I am still about - health issues aside R2 has now clocked up 51,500 miles away with no problems (touch wood).Still getting around 55mpg and it's now my only car.Only downside is that the front tyres tend to wear fairly quickly. Probably the fwd and cvt box.
