    Had to take the scoob to work today ,as it's booked in for mot . Can't remember the last time i enjoyed "going " to work before [emoji848] but 25miles of b road smiles ftw [emoji16] didn't like parking it in the building site car park though , as its not the flatest bit of ground and i do lack a bit ground clearance [emoji4] She past without any advisories and i was told "its cleaner underneath than most 5 yr old cars " Which aint bad seeing as shes 23 yrs old [emoji41] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Bit late replying but I basically echo everyone else. Thanks for organising it! Shame weather seemed to stop a lot of people going, was very quiet but still enjoyed it. Definitely going to try my best to make silverstone next year from what o heard. Anyway here are a few pics I took.

    Hi Ben, Had 14 months warranty left when I bought her, but wasn't worried about any problems. Currently running Dunlop sport maxx xl, but they've had a rough 12 months, really rough. 😁 And there's no way they're gonna make my mot in Dec. Going to try Michelin Crossclimate next, really good reviews and vids. This model is really hard to get the Scooby burble out of, I went stainless axle back and full muffler delete. Sounds great. 😁 Cosmetics: New reg... 😎 Direnza hubcentric wheel spacers, 15mm all round. De badged the back, tinted rear indicators, black side badges Upgraded: Battery, Bosch S5 Panel air filter, Pipercross Pro R Head unit, Pioneer AVIC-F960DAB with sat nav. @mattiekane I've heard that "Loud pipes save lives" is this true?

    Ok, where to start... First off, welcome. 😁 You've made a great choice in cars, I'm on my 3rd Scooby in 10 years and couldn't imagine driving anything else. The opinions and review below are mine and as such should be treated with caution! 😊 Mine's a daily driver and our main car. Does 25 miles a day for work and has made a couple of road trips, Skye, Cornwall, France, Holland, Belgium, Germany. Never missed a beat and drove flawlessly. The Scoobys I've owned have been bullet proof, so far. Maintenance: Servicing, I tend to go 10k or 12 months. Check oil, water, brake wear, every 3 months. Wash off sap, bird crap, salt whenever spotted, clean when I can be bothered. Driving modes: Granny, (intelligent) good for rear passengers, very linear response and good round town. Sport, (sport) my choice when I'm on my own or just with the wife. Excellent response, great acceleration, just on the bridge between exciting and scary. Sport#, (trigger) what were they thinking, I would imagine it's awesome round a track, but almost unmanageable on the roads. Handling: Nothing to say other than, wow! Goes where you want, when you want. Steering's sharp and firm, still semi hydraulic I think. Gearing's a little short and there's some turbo lag, so you have to work the box and be on the ball all the time. You do have to be engaged with the car, it's not your sofa or an Audi. If you are willing to work a little, and enjoy driving, it's performance is immense. The car feels solid and incredibly stable, even an 145mph in the rain. Diff: (stock setting is roughly 40/60) I don't mess with the manual settings, not my cup of tea. Auto+ in the rain and snow, shifts the bias towards 50/50 Auto- when the temps over 20°, about 2 days a year. 😉 Running: Only ever used V Power, even when I'm Europe, it's worth the extra cost and the time to plan your route. I've averaged 27mpg over 10k, work runs every day, weekends away and the odd Autobahn. Servicing is reasonable, considering the performance car you now own. 😊 General: The ride is very firm but comfortable. Don't be tempted to soften the tyres, it weighs over 1500kg and will scrub them badly, even though it'll still handle like a dream. I run at 36psi all round. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. 😁 Ian

    I agree, your boot install is awesome, and the sound is so clear and crisp, doesn't distort at all. So when you've done that feel free to do one for me 😂 Really enjoyed the show, even managed to get out on the strip a couple of times! Did my bit for subaru v Mitsubishi and beat this Galant in the pic below! Can't wait till the next one. and thanks to Geoff for organising it 👍🏻

    May I suggest you refresh the bottom end, the heat may have caused damage to the bearings. You wouldn't want to pay out on HG repair for the bottom end to give up a few months later.

    lol but it tastes like sour apple... One of my niggles is the speedo needle which quivers all the time....I find myself staring at it just willing it to stay still lol. Sadly this is not due to acceleration....I wonder if a connection is just loose....*runs out to check*

    got my new dual console box from japan today, so fitted it. i was exhausted after the 5 mins it took to screw in..

    If it was smoking as much as you say from my experience you would see evidence of a leak easily either in plug and piston crown colour, coolant loss, gas analyser sniff test or combination of these. easy enough do a relative compression check and takes 5 minutes, good comp test with transducer pressure sensor can tell you a lot but not quickest to do on a subaru. Wouldn't worry about rest of engine if passes few basic tests but as always it can be bit of gamble. Shame trader made a mess of diagnosis :-/ really not that hard to of drawn some better conclusion than he did ! . Don't buy a Citroen lol, that just total stupidity .

    Needed a whole new Exhaust system from cat to tail pipe on my 2.0 Forester Auto. Subaru wanted £1100 for a complete system in milld steel !. I don't think so!. Found this brilliant company in Macclesfield who today fabricated, supplied and fitted the entire system for me in 304 grade stainless steel. Price £550 + VAT. I am very pleased. Plus, it is guaranteed for the life of the car !!!. I can highly recommend them !!!! www.jpexhausts.co.uk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The issue is he doesn't seem shady at all. His reviews are pretty damn good. People usually review trade sellers when they've been f***ed over. I can't find anything negative about him or his company: middlebrook cars ltd in Bolton. I'm inclined to trust the bloke, but I do want evidence of his testing. Currently looking into him doing a 'block tester' on it. and perhaps some sort of guarantee that I won't have to pay to fix such an engine problem if it is as such. I'll wait to see what he comes back with.

    @savage bulldogs Missing newer models? Maybe I can help with 1 of them, if the dates good, I'll try and get her to either Silverstone or Donnington, can't promise, but I'll try. And track time... ? 🤔 Interesting.

    Outer c.v's do tend to make a "clicking" with rotation of the wheel on full lock when worn . You might not have heard it with the wheels hanging down , due to there being a lot less stress on them (cars weight) and the difference in the angle of the wishbones . Try doing a slow circle with someone outside the car to see if they can hear it . Make sure it's nothing simple like droplinks or a mud flap catching a tyre . Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
