The first, a traditional blue model, sports the 2.5-litre, turbocharged flat-four from the 2004 WRX STI, which is good for around 300 horsepower. The other Impreza is a bit more hardcore – the engine is a 2.0-litre, turbocharged four-cylinder from the JDM WRX STI, which we suppose makes it more of an Impreza 2.0RS Coupe.

Weekend: Wake-Up to Yoga in the Park!!

There is nothing better on a chilly morning than to get outside near the dewey grass and welcome the sun as it warms up the soccer pitch at the back of Shell Park! We had surprisingly pleasant weather on September 14th, when Budds’ Subaru and some of our best customers and staff practised a class together. This was our first Morning Yoga event, and we were not short on prizes to give away, including a highly-valued peice of Art by Sanjay Patel, $200 to our service department, and a 2014 Subaru Demo for the weekend. Daniela brought her daughter Isabella and they, Gluten Free and Me the specialty store located on Rebecca St in Oakville, cooked up some amazing pancakes for after the class. Thanks to the Silvery Blue Butterfly spa in Oakville, who made sure everyone went home with a $25 certificate towards spa services. We also would like to thank our parts sponsor Wurth for the Winner’s certificates, and clothing sponsor Dedicated, but MOST OF ALL: Beth Rutty, who without her excellent instruction we would have been lost. There is no better way to wake up! Continue reading “Weekend: Wake-Up to Yoga in the Park!!”
