What Peugeot you have that still on the road.

@air wick
What is the best and the worst fuel consumption you got from the 1.5


worst is now @ 8km/l

best is 11 - 12 km/l when i change plugs and air filter but it's dependent on how you drive

avg. 400km per tank (40 L)

The EL15 motor in the fwd Impreza Anesis and hback feels just as powerful as the HR15DE in the Tiida hback. If you get the awd Impreza as was mentioned before, the drivetrain will rob more power and thus you would feel like you're driving a 1.2 March or a 1.3 Yaris. Also, it'll be more costly to maintain in the long-run when it comes to gas and road wear and tear on the suspension. Not much mechanics have experience working on the boxer engine anyway so make sure you research potential service people who can work on your vehicle first before sending your quasi sophisticated hundred thousand dollar ride in his/her hands. Parts is obviously cheaper and easier to find than the Impreza when compared to a Tiida be it hback or sedan but when it comes to handling, safety, security and I guess overall prestige, the Impreza wins.

What you guys think about the scooby sedan tho? I find the hatch has too much of a soccer mom look to it... a bess one if that's any consolation.

This uses super? But parts for that harder to get than a Subaru and Tiida not so?
I don't think southern sales sold any of these locally or if they use same parts as the axela sedan but i hear dealing with Southern Sales is stress expensive and plenty down time to get a part. And the mazda hatch appearance wise it last in choice for me. i was frist looking at the Axio, Axela sedan, subaru and tiida hatch, I drop the axela for the premium issue and axio I see men getting trouble for altis parts.

True. If you look at the specs you would see the tiida specs slightly above the 1.5TS. But I think that and price is all the tiida has on the TS.

So once you not planning on issuing fyazz to all within your general area for a very affordable rate, then I think the TS is the better option. Then again, if you were planning to, you would automatically go with the tiida above all else and not even aske the questions

Ergo, by asking which one is better you prove that you rather the Scooby... your welcome. My consultation fee is 2.5%

The Tiida evolved from the B14. By owning a Tiida, you automatically pay homage to the B14... just with much more fyaazzzz

Drove the new RORO Tiida hatch last night. 1.5 CVT. Interior is actually better than I hoped and I have to say is excellent. The new Nissan reverse camera is excellent but the mirrors tilting down when going into reverse to "help" is annoying. Need to convert the GPS for Trinidad.... and English. E-brake by left foot was a surprise. Though the seats are more comfortable than the previous Tiida I owned, I still find they are too small and don't support my legs. The CVT is annoying but I hate the CVT driving feel.. and new technology.. so that is just me. Steering feel is better than the 2007 model... like it has a better power steering pump or something.

Still would have bought a Subaru (almost any other car atually) as I know the issues we going to be seeing shortly. Will let you guys know how this one holds up.

Someone should start a impreza thread.

I want to know about dropping a turbo into a non-turbo 1.5 impreza. Just want a little extra "umph" in that 3500 to 5500 rpm range.

Nice, I only know about 555 for parts and service (they seem to have a lot of parts as well) and I keep hearing about some mechanic in chase village. Don't know is name or number.

555 Subaru/Mahadeo's has a lot of parts for this car. I bought 75% of my parts to repair mine after the accident. Double B lower down that same road also has some parts, and Niskar Automotive in Marabella has good prices on new parts.

Idk about turboing the EL15 but I do know that an EJ20 head and block swaps in very easily with just some minor elctrical work to be done In fact, what I've learnt from bringing back my wreck is that A LOT of the parts are interchangeable with the Legacy (intake manifold, fuse box, airbox and snorkel, radiator, condensor are just a few). I bought the radiator from Deo's on the highway tho, cost me $1200 new and the windshields start at $700 installed, although I bought a real neat one without the blue fade up top and it came with wiper heaters, for $1800.

The mechanic in chase village i think is Bird. He good but his price up there from what I heard. I did my engine rebuild at Donny's Performance, who is also very competent, just ask Gobin. PM me for his contact.

The older ej20t would fit easily as well? Maybe in a few years I might try to do a full conversion to wrx.

Guy in Bamboo does good Subaru work. Few houses before the T-junction to go D&D if you heading in a southern direction.

Have some guys that did conversions of ts to wrx / sti.
But don't turbo charge the stock 1.5/1.6, internals not all that strong for that power.

Yeah I was wondering about that. I guess I'll just cool myself with it as it is now but if it ever gives problems I might look at doing a partial conversion then. What items need to be changed along with dropping in a 2.0 engine and turbo?

Plenty work. Start with a wrx front half. Gas tank might have to change. Whole back assembly to get the awd to work. Plenty work.

My advice is go from fwd - awd - turbo
