  1. Using Oil and EM light Issues - Please help.

    Can't help with you're trouble i'm afraid as have a classic and have never worked on the newer scoobs but i wouldn't worry about the metallic sludge on the sump plug as thats perfectly normal as long as there's no larger bits stuck to it, engines that are well worn in over 100k miles still get the fine pieces stuck to the plug, if you think about its all those metal parts flying round and round inside the engine at a million miles an hour you'll get some wear, hope you get to the bottom of the problem bud 👍
  2. Buying a impreza

    Welcome to the club, i would try ebay or gumtree as theres quite alot of classics which run from 92-00 and bugeyes which i think are from 00-03 theres also pistonheads bit i find cars on there a bit pricey, just make sure you have someone with you who is mechanically savvy if you cant do it yourself and that it has history with proof of mods etc as theres alot of people who will just tell you anything also if you're buget can stretch to it get an sti as they have a stronger engine and gearbox which is also 6speed where as the wrx only came in 5speed, happy hunting 😉👍👍
  3. Hi from Stevenage

    No problem buddy i would think subaru should be able to tell you with the vin also think a bodyshop should be able to match the paint with the vin aswell
  4. Hi from Stevenage

    Welcome to the club, Hope this helps with the paint code 👍
  5. hi from a nearly wrx sti owner

    Welcome to the club, if you are going to go for one on or after 06 i think it was then it'l have the 2.5ltr engine which has suffered from a few problems most notably ringland failure as subaru seemed to make the pistons from chocolate lol so really you would want to find a car that has had the engine forged which eliminates that problem and should see many miles of happy motoring plus it should make the engine capable of higher amounts of power which will be good for the track 😉
  6. Well i've decided that i'm going to pull the engine out over the winter and do the head gaskets as its still using a little coolant and theres no evidence of an external leak also the crank seals are a bit damp so will get them aswell, will steam clean the engine while its out so its all nice and shiney clean 😎 its doing my head in that its all dirty, getting a loan of a folding engine crane so i can get the engine in the back of the car and take it to work and i'll get it on the bench and do it in my limited spare time
  7. GC8 Brake diagram

    Welcome to the club bud, not sure of this is right or not Oh and we like pics of said motor 😁😁

    Welcome along, i'm not the best with electrics but i would say you have all the parts you would need to do the job, i think you will have to run an ignition live to one side of the switch an earth and a live the other side of the switch going to you're lights also not sure about the laws in Argentina but here in the UK you are required to have a tell tale on the switch to show that the rear fog is on from inside the car, hope this helps a little 😉😎
  9. Sorry to hear about you're engine woes especially since you've only had the car 3weeks, i would service the engine before you get it in as the plugs will be easy to change whilst its out coz its a bit of a pain to say the least when the engines in place, can't help with the transporter side unfortunately but if you have AA cover or similar they should be able to get the car back to you, hope you get back on the road soon 👍👍
  10. Diesel Highest Mileage competition

    My daily is a, 2008 Mondeo estate 193,500 miles( still going strong ) Been one of the most reliable cars i've ever had, not many issues the usual wear and tear parts and service every 12,000 miles, biggest part to go was dualmass flywheel at 155,000 miles which i think is not bad
  11. Another mechanic in the house????? BMW help required

    Hiya mattie i've no experience with bm's but it could be a cracked abs ring as that would give a pulsing type feeling through the pedal, hope you get to the bottom of it and its a cheap fix
  12. help

    You could try import car parts they are very good and if they don't list it on their website if you give them a call they may be able to get one for you and the prices are competitive
