I have found more info on 2004 - 2007 models, but may or may not be applicable to your 2000 Impreza. I am not familiar with the the UK model differences, but if yours has AVCS use your favorite internet search engine to search for "Subaru AVCS" or "Subaru TSB". Good luck!

Hi , I`m not sure about the 01 model but the 98 model got this roker cover gasket problem because it`s too close to the exhaust and with time can`t handle the heat.So when you rev the car , dropping oil on to the exhaust and one little drop of oil can make big smoke which coming up around the turbo. Hope this helps .
this problem will be down to the oil pump and will need replaceing (on the impreza it will need a bigger oil pump as the imprezas have a comon problem with oil supply to the top of the heads)
please rate this advice,
