  2. easy done with a DA polisher. not too difficult to remove the headlights once the scuff is gone and the grill has the chrome gone should be looking not too bad.
  3. Wotcha and welcome - hopefully someone will be along with a recommendation - all the ones I know are further afield
  4. Wotcha and welcome - plenty of experience on this forum and all friendly - feel free to get stuck in
  5. Yesterday
  6. I have a 2019 XV Premium and I could use some roof cross rails. only for occasional use so I don't want to pay dealer price / silly money. Dont know if previous versions fit. I have heard that Aldi sometimes do them but never when I go there. based near Bingley West Yorkshire but could travel when I recover from radiotherapy (I.e. stop glowing in the dark!). Bob H
  7. We have just bught an XV Premium 2 Litre from KT Green in Otley, West Yorkshire via a recommendation from not only our next door neighbours but also another friend as well. Really easy to deal with, test drove a car before they even knew my name. No pressure sales tactics and a good cup of coffee to boot. We needed one quickly because my Disco Sport had just been written off so Matthew the Sales Manager said that if we wanted one so quickly why didn't we buy the demonstrator, only 2000 on the clock and a really good deal instead of ordering one - so we did. This has been a really good car to drive so far - the only things I as a driver miss are the lack of parking sensors but I can soon rectify that! Being an independent garage they are really flexible and helpful, we got a lift into the garage to collect the car at short notice, this was very helpful to us as the loan car wasn't brilliant so got sent back. Matthew even put my cherished number on retention for me. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to anybody. ps I was really grateful for my dashcam, it helped with the insurance claim and was the first thing that went on the new car! Bob H
  8. Yup used KYB shocks before plus my lad running the KYB / Eibach combo on his colt - much improved over standard
  9. Everyone has to start somewhere - The major challenge will be ensuring you dont screw up the timing but there are videos online to sort that. I dont think you have the belt guide on a 2.0NA so no chance of you rubbing your belt away due to incorrect postioning. Take your time and take photos along the way
  10. Last week
  11. Hi. Same issue. Keen to hear if you get a response. Cheers.
  12. Wotcha and welcome - apologies I will not be able to help as I will too far away this week - hopefully someone may be able to help out
  13. Hello - I'm very sorry but I've only just seen your message - I thought I'd set the forum to email me with replies but I've not seen it. They're from a 2005 WRX so I think that could have been a blobeye or a hawkeye (sorry i didn't see the donor car, it had already been stripped). Also I think the internal configuration may be the same anyway but I really couldn't be sure. Sorry I'm not of much use on this (I wanted the drivers' seat for my Foz so I didn't pay much attention at the time). But let me know if there any info I can give or photos that might narrow it down.
  14. Enjoy! Once you've gone jap, you'll never go back 😁
  15. I haven't got a clue what spec it is and have never seen it in the flesh .Afaik Darren at abw did the work to, showcase his parts and he makes some quality stuff . someone fairly local used to own it and Think its changed hands a few times since being built , so not sure how good it is now . Don't let that put you off though, if you like it go and see it for yourself to find out if it's still in good condition.
  16. Fingers crossed 🤞
  17. Manifold is unequal and it does give the burble - this will be retained 👍 Ill follow up with Alyn - cheers
  18. Thanks - ill check those and replace all the washers, I have a new oil feed line coming from HEL as I learnt the hard way with my 200sx eating turbos due to feed line being partially blocked by cooked oil.
  19. That is a steal - hopefully someone will snap it up
  20. Lovely looking motor - surprised it has not gone
  21. Have you got any service history with it ? If a shock or bearing had been replaced for maintenance it might not have been re aligned? Although there's plenty of tread is there any difference in the amount of tread on the inner or outer edges ? I had a full corner weighted geo set up done to my spec for £150 , so a 4 wheel alignment check should be a lot cheaper. At least you'd be able to rule out alignment issues too . Either way it doesn't sound right as these cars normally feel more planted than most other cars , due to the awd and low center of gravity boxer layout .
  22. Hi, anyone got any experience using the cobb accessport in a wrx sti ? mainly after it for the launch control and flat shift rather than the maps.
  23. try these guys for a price https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2008-SUBARU-IMPREZA-WRX-2-5-PETROL-HINGE-BREAKING-SPARES/163264575982?hash=item260353b9ee:g:oc0AAOSw8PRboLmf
  24. I think the manual says 50K I did my last car at 40K and have my current one booked in to do it at 39K but that is partly piece of mind as it is an unbranded belt that I do not know the history of and given the royal spanking the motor will get in the near future I dont want to be concerned about the basics
