I tried searching these forums literally for "domingo versus sambar" but no luck. So I hope this thread is not a rehash. I'm looking at importing either a Domingo or Sambar. I live in the US so that should tell you about what parts I can likely find more easily. It would also imply that I can only import a 25 year old vehicles, so by today's date that's a 1994 at the newest. I would like it to have full-time 4WD and a manual, and if a Sambar I'd want the supercharger option as well to help that tiny 660cc engine out. But ultimately I don't know if it's better to shoot for a Sambar or Domingo. One point of confusion. I see in some resources that the Domingo never came in a manual 5-speed and full-time 4wd option. But...I do see one up for auction that purports to have just that! Here is the frame number results from epc-data.com https://subaru.epc-data.com/domingo/fa8/203-ef12e/?frame_no=FA8-005367&ref= So, I guess that is a possible spec? I see the size difference is modest. Either way this vehicle would be a city runabout. No big highway drives save for a possible 30 minute freeway jaunt sometimes. Let's say I can get a 1994 version of either, with reasonable miles and condition. What say you forum wizards? Thanks!
