Reviews - What do customers think about High-Performance Subaru Builder's Guide: Includes the Impreza, Legacy, Forester, Outback, WRX and STI (S-A Design)?
lists products but... Sep 3, 2008
I really welcome this type of book but it was a little light in providing actual information. It primarily lists what you can buy for your Subie but doesn't get into much detail about install, what to look for, potential issues etc. It kinda reminds me of those shows on Speed Network where "its all great" everything works as advertised, no one product is ever better than another, etc."
Disappointing - Not a DIY, step by step guide. May 7, 2008
This book is a high-level overview of different directions you can go in when it comes to modifying your subaru and an overview of available parts & manufacturers. Do not buy if you are expecting a step-by-step guide on how to do anything yourself. As far as what the book IS: It is (I guess) a pretty good product overview. However, you can get all that online, in much more detail and with individual people's comments about each part of type of modification. I have been a WRX owner for only 4 months now, and didn't find any new information in this book (new from research I already did online). In my opinion, this is just not worth buying.
Nice and easy to follow May 2, 2008
That book is simple to read and understand for an owner that is learning the basics and the how to do. Information is sufficient to make good and safe choices for any level of upgrading Highly recommend to buy Jacques Dufresne
Not for experienced enthusiasts Mar 28, 2008
This is a very nice book if you don't know much about cars. If, like me, you were hoping for a more in-depth type of content from that offered in Subiesport magazine, don't bother. I learned absolutely nothing that I didn't know before. For me it's pretty much useless, but I do want to emphasize that the author has good intentions and that it is a well crafted book. I used to love this kind of book when I was 12.
Excellent Technical on various Subaru vehicles, focusing on the Impreza Feb 11, 2008
I was looking for a book with good information specific to my Impreza WRX. This is an excellent source of information. It shares some specific upgrade information, which is OK, but also goes into specific differences between various engine/chassis specifications and their positives & negatives, which is an invaluable.
