What to watch out for
Usual Impreza turbo caveats.
Be very careful to check the exact spec, power output and whether independent import or not so you know exactly what you're buying.
For economy reasons, the alternator does not start recharging the battery until the engine is fully to temperature, resulting in flat batteries for cars driven short distances from cold. The answer is to switch on the side lights or headlights creating a need for power that clutches the alternator on so it recharges the battery.
