  3. yep, that did it.
  4. Hi All, I have a 2006 XT SG Facelift manual and it has a really heavy clutch. I've heard somewhere that this is usual on Facelifted SG's and that a heavy clutch is normal. I was hoping someone could confirm this or otherwise, I haven't had one of these before and it really is stiff, like if you're in stop/start traffic you put it in neutral before your foot goes numb stiff! Other than this it operates as it should and I don't want to spend £800 getting it replaced to find out there was nothing wrong with it! Hope someone who knows better than me can advise, many thanks!
  5. Depends on where you go and read reviews I think haha. I've seen people saying good and also bad. It's a cheap oil though compared to others...not something I would run personally though.
  6. What did you use for headlights? Toothpaste? Been debating on doing mine...but then debated on sending them off to have them done properly (sanded down etc.) by a professional for a few quid...mind I kinda wanna take them and bake them @Hudson 😂
  7. Here we go again Man walks into a bar and places his keys on the table The bar tender says oh my do u drive a s600bby Total rediculous to think anybody would pay for that
  8. Just saw your other post. Hope it works out. I think I would have my doubts too. Play on a pulley, that normally means a new one is needed to me, but I could be wrong too
  9. Hey lads,hope you can help me with these 2 possible probs,ive posted this down in the xv section aswell just incase its not confined to the diesel xv First of all My xv is a 14plate 2.0 diesel turbo se First Question: Is it normal for the tensioner that located to the right under the alternator to have sideways movement under idle or should it stay still?,cant remember if the aircon was on or off at the time!! Second Question: Can third gear be a pain to slot into when giving the car a bit stick? it was my first time driving an xv so could it be down to my driving style and not being used to the gearbox? I don't want to buy the car if these are issues,its been niggling away at me for a couple of days now.......... Thanks in advance
  10. Cheers sir, Hopefully pal
  11. Hi hope you enjoy.

  13. This is true but not common faults all cost 3+k to put right. Theyre not the cheapest to maintain as it is but I dont mind that and the occassional little issues and stuff but not engine failure. I will have a look over it compared to other cars. Just seems like an expensive common fault for something already expensive.
  14. Here's a pic. Bracket is only resting there but you can see misalignment.. cheers
  15. Every car has its problems, ringlands with these and the 3sgte engine(found in Celica and MR2's) then there is range rovers with gear box issues in the newer ones and engine issues in the older one's, the 2.0 Subaru's(so I hear) are meant to be incredibly reliable, mines over 100k miles with no huge issues. If common fault scare you off, I'd suggest buying a push bike Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  16. Can u post a picture of what you mean? Might make it easier to help you 😊 Sent from my HTC One M9 using Tapatalk
  17. Maybe I wont go for a scoob then and go for something different. I dont want to fork out 3k plus fixing a car worth only 5 ish. Thats ridiculous. I know its mainly stis that go and not wrx but now im really put off of them so I will stick with othee brands that hold some reliability. I know all cars have issues but not that sort of expensive.
  18. That looks superb [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. The needle was still going down so I still had fuel... that was my logic :D
  20. Looking good :D
  21. Seen some fail at less than 40k... seen some go at close to 100k... some don't go at all, it's just your luck. But there are more cases of ringland or head gasket issues with the 2.5 compared to the 2.0 Few people on here have experienced this... maybe be an idea to set some money aside if you do go down that route... ye know... just in case! Welcome to the club! :D
  22. Just attempted to fit a whiteline adj rear sway bar and found tiebar reinforcement brackets do not align with existing droplink brackets - hole centres are about 2-3mm off. Has anyone else found this??? i dont really want to file and elongate hole in original mount to make fit if I can avoid. Brackets should fit... Cheers
  23. Yeah they are still available
  24. Hello I am very close to purchasing a subaru wrx hatchback not an sti. I have been told lots of horror stories about them and ringlands and bearings etc and I am looking to spend around 5-7k max and have seen a few with 50-70k miles with full service history either subaru oe specialist. Cambelt done etc. Now is this issue exxagerated and if the cars now on 50k plus miles wouldnt the issue have already been fixed if this was the case. I mean I came here as a subaru forum seemed like the best place for honest opinion as opposed to everyone else slating the hatch wrx. My friend got an rx8 and eveeyone said the same to him he boght one that had a rebuild and its been running fine 2 years now. So anyway opinions please as I dont want to spend that money to spend the same again fixing it. I do like the look of them though I have been so tempted to go get one. I want a hatch as opposed to saloon etc.
  25. are these still for sale ? Im looking for another set.
  26. so changed my exhaust today to the quad pipes,have to say am very happy with them,looks and sounds great
