We have had a large number of Impreza 22B’s through our doors, be it within our showroom where we have had many lovely 22B’s including a 270 mile example, or within our workshop where we have restored multiple 22B’s for customers to a very high level.

This example is a superb offering, from top to bottom. One of the best examples we have ever seen. One for the serious collector.


We always keep our eyes peeled for the very highest quality cars in Japan, when this example popped up we had the car inspected through our close partners at JM Imports who understand our expectations.

Being a Grade 4.5A with very low miles, full Japanese history, we expected it to tick all the boxes.
Upon inspection, it was clear this car was exactly the type of high standards we work hard to uphold & so the car was purchased.

JM Imports kindly arranged shipping for us & once the car was with us, we performed a full service which of course included belts & water pump.
We also cavity waxed the chassis to help with longevity of such a beautiful original chassis & we fitted new premium brand tyres.

A single stage machine polish has been carried out & here we have the vehicle ready for the new owner.

In terms of paperwork, the car has all original 22B booklets, un-used spare key, superb Japanese service history, the original 180kmh speedo, the original toolkit & an Japanese workshop manual.
We have also of course documented the service work we have carried out since arrival in to the UK.

Body & Paintwork

As you would fully expect, this 22B looks absolutely fantastic.

The wheels are still in original finish & the bodywork paint is in great condition having benefited from a professional enhancement detail session as part of our sales preparation.
Badges are original, as are all trims, all glass & all lights.

The door glass is free of the usual scratching which most three door Impreza’s suffer from.

No damage, no dings, just completely as Subaru intended.
The 22B to many people is much more than just a car, it is an absolute icon of the era & it is not hard to see why when looking at one in the flesh, the presence that a 22B has is unlike anything else, especially when it is in such condition as this example.

A truly stunning example!

Interior & Trim

The interior is absolutely fantastic.

Likewise, the pedal rubbers, gear knob, steering wheel & ‘satin’ finish of the dashboard are all in great condition.

All seats are in tremendous condition, with all bolsters maintaining the original shape with no signs of wear.
Likewise, the door cards, centre console, trims & switchgear all present very well indeed.

This example really is a step above the usual ‘nice examples’.

The only change is a commonly fitted, STi 280kmh speedo (original is with the car & documented).
Total mileage is 11,102miles/17,866km’s.

A true step back to 1999 in the greatest of forms.
Simple, effective & like new.


The 22B certainly needs no introduction, so we will not bore you with the factory figures or needless sales waffle.

What we will tell you is that this example is unmodified & although it has 11,102 miles, the engine bay presents as well as any Impreza 22B we have seen, including lower mileage examples we have had in our showroom. The car runs perfectly, as you would expect.

For piece of mind the car has undergone a full major service using genuine parts, this included the cambelt, pulleys, water pump, fluids and so on.
The original items still remain with the car.

As you can see, the engine bay itself present very nicely – looking very fresh & still sporting all the original factory markings throughout.

Running Gear

As per the rest of the car, all running gear is original without modifications.

The original wheels are still in place & are wearing new premium tyres.

Running gear & the underbody of the car are in sublime original condition, showing all the original factory QC & Stamp markings.
The chassis is without any corrosion, absolutely stunning.

Whilst the car was undergoing a service & safety check over in our workshop, we also treated the car to a cavity wax to ensure longevity of such an example.
