New Owner of #002

Postby D6ale » Sun Nov 30, 2014 10:32 pm

Hi all,
A few weeks ago i bought #002 from KT Green in leeds.

71k miles and full service history at KT Greens. They had given the car a 10 year overhaul and this enabled me to enjoy the closest experience that i think i would ever have of buying a WR1 new. It is original with exception of a PSI3 unit.

So a bit more about me.

I have been into Subaru's for as long as i can remember. My first impreza was a MY93 NA sport, then i acquired my first turbo version, RB5 #283 I bought and rebuilt the RB5 after it was badly vandalised. Then started to subtly modify it with an STI bottom end, VF34, exhaust,Prodrive Bilstein suspension,AP Calipers, remap. 320bhp.

Image

I also own a MY96 STI Version 2 555 edition. Standard, Original condition.

I have wanted a WR1 since Petter won the '03 championship. I followed the SWRT closely through the years. My special edition Imprezas each have a link to the 3 World drivers championships.

I know #002 has been known to this site previously. I have read all the threads on here and on SN. Unfortunately the links to photos no longer work. If anyone has any history / photos of it i would be very grateful.

Dale

Number 002 is the first WR1 that I had seen in the flesh, The original owner "Rum" took me for a spin in it whilst I was waiting for mine to arrive, got some pics on my other computer of it outside my flat! I seem to remember Rum had it mapped with the TSL 333 Map, not sure if it stayed mapped or was put back to standard as Rum was good friends with Mike Wood from prodrive! it also had a nokia Bluetooth kit installed and a gear shift security locking pin.
Ant,

Had an my99 uk classic,

Then got P1 (0329),

Then got a brand new WR1 (092),

Then got a my00 UK Classic,

Then got another P1 (0488), Now Sold.

Thanks all for your comments.

I'm really smitten with the WR1 trying to resist taking it out in the rubbish weather it really enjoying driving it.

Ant, any history / photos would be great. Kt green are trying with Rum too.

I had read it had been remapped but It wasn't sold with a remap advertised. I was going to check the ecu but I'm not sure what I would be looking for? Shift light doesn't seem to work, I thought this might be something to do with it? It still has the gear lock. Great device!

You have to set the shift light up to work, I had Duncan Racedynamix come out and check my map was the original prodrive, as I suspected it had been mapped before, it hadn't, didn't cost much either, he did it one eve when passing the area and was there 5-10 mins

Hi all, just caught up with this thread. The photo above isn't #002 but I think that's how the stickers on it were once done?
