the drive trains, power trains are pretty much the same for all cars built in that time frame, imprezas and foresters included. (forget about the WRX or SVX, they are unique.) 99 was a transition year, some some engines are different and some auto trans are different.
in the european or aisan markets the year span could be 94 - 98, or maybe 96 - 00. but if the car looks like yours the parts will most likely fit yours. but ask first just to be sure.
what does your car need?

I hear a lot of transmission parts are Nissan - atleast the auto's. The key I believe is the same as Nissan.
ooh! you're right , JATCO supplies nissan and soob (well, for a significant number of year I'd guess)
The modern JATCO was formed after Nissan spun off its AT/CVT (automatic transmission/continuously variable transmission) development divisions and its Fuji manufacturing plant into a company called TransTechnology, Ltd in June 1999. TransTechnology Ltd. and JATCO Corp., both affiliates of Nissan, agreed to merge in October 1999 to become JATCO TransTechnology Ltd. JATCO was established in 1970 to manufacture automatic transmissions.
In October 2001, as part of its restructuring, Mitsubishi Motors agreed to merge its transmission division with Nissan's transmission subsidiary Jatco TransTechnology Ltd. The combined company settled on JATCO Ltd. in April, 2002. Nissan and Mitsubishi equity holdings in JATCO after the share exchange stand at 82% and 18% respectively.
When it was still the transmission manufacturing division of Nissan, it partnered with Mazda, and thus Jatco, had long been supplying Nissan, Mazda, Subaru, Isuzu, Suzuki, BMW, Volkswagen, MG Rover Group and Land Rover. However, once it was independent, Jatco quickly began supplying other automakers:
December 1999 — Hyundai Motor CompanyJanuary 2001 — Jaguar CarsDecember 2001 — London Taxis InternationalJanuary 2002 — Ford EuropeApril 2002 — Renault Samsung MotorsApril 2002 — Ford Lio HoApril 2004 — Changan FordDecember 2005 — DaimlerChrysler U.S.A.October 2006 - Renault Today, JATCO become one of the biggest supplier of CVT, and products from nearly every auto maker have used Jatco transmissions, with the notable exceptions of Honda Motor Company, who makes their own transmissions, and Toyota Motor Company, who has always used transmissions made by Aisin, a subsidiary of Toyota. GM continues to produce a majority of its transmissions through GM Powertrain an outgrowth of Hydramatic.

Ordering car parts on line from ebay motors, or from other car parts companies may be an option, providing shipping costs and delivery time delay are not outrageous.
