  10. You will need to get the fault codes read. All dealers, some independent garages will be able to read the codes, as could you with Freessm program, laptop and suitable connecting cable. There is also a way to read the codes directly off the car by connecting connectors but I'm not sure of the process. Then, armed with the code well be better able to determine the problem.

  14. Hi, buying a Cross Sports Forester, and obv need ins, however my ins can't seem to find what to insure it as, anyone have a Foz with Admiral! TIA
  15. Not sure what light fitting you have (HID xenon or not) Check this site for aftermarket options and LED upgrades - eg if it is an H7 dipped bulb you could go for a night breaker which will throw out a much brighter beam https://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk Another brand I use a lot are MTEC bulbs which are very bright in my high beam - they give the local chelsea tractors arch eye when I remind them they are driving with high beam on 😆
  16. Aw yeah if I had read your post properly I’d have seen that 🤣 duh subaru drivers eh hahaha
  17. I have had 4 customers with issues on speed rating, hence why I advised contacting insurer before buying . Main issue is insurers clueless to technicality of it . I can understand T being more debatable but H seems more than fine for UK road use as never going exceed 130mph lol and load rating far more critical aspect . I would also ask your insurers if they happy for you to be doing over 130mph on UK public roads if they want you have V rating Most important factors is tyre match to your regional conditions and quality and load rating and your nokians better than OEM tyres by a long shot . Reality is they more than suitable winter and summer use . Do need be careful as having insurance invalidated after an accident has potential for wiping you clean financially . First case I heard of was this scenario and legal costs went over 70 grand over several years . Your best bet is keep working with your current insurer and get it in writing underwriter accepts it .. You just going need ring a few companies and see how they respond . Is a ridiculous scenario and mainly derived from ignorance from insurers on what good tyre choices and wanting easy escape clauses . You always best telling them as you buying car insurance that you can't use in a more serious accident scenario by overlooking it . Ignoring the issue doesn't fix the issue and insurance companies need a massive kick in the bo11ocks; over this one .. Churchill accepted one of my customers on all season same scenario as you . I'm on traders policy and only got one company cover modifications and grey import cars .

  20. Sorry if I'm duplicating here but - Hi everybody, request for a bit more help please, when I googled the size of double din it says 180 x 100.3 mm. when I've measured the built in unit in the (2007) forester it comes to about 174 x 100 mm, definitely under 180 by at least 5mm, is that the difference in a bezel ? will a double din fit in place of the built in unit ? don't want to be trying to trim the dash panel ! Thanks Brian.

  22. Hi can anyone help ..I have a 2004 subaru impreza sti everything fine but fitted some aftermarket gauges and when running all good and reading correct but when I turn any electrical load on the gauges go up like 15deg temp oil and water . I have ran direct to battery to make sure it's not a wiring problem and still the same I have ran new earths all over the engine and body still the same . Charging at 14.2 and when loads on its 14.0 .
  23. Just a caution to others; I bought four Nokian Weatherproof, 215/65 R16 H XL, fitted them and then contacted my insurer to notify them of the change. Insurer ( AXA) are refusing to cover the change to H-rated from OEM V-rated. Be warned and check with insurer before spending cash on new tyres. (wish I'd done that)
  24. Assuming you have the built in sat-nav, I was sent this link from Subaru UK... https://subaru-eu-mapupdate.naviextras.com/shop/portal You can download a SubaruGen2 toolbox and update the SD card. I have downloaded it and read the card but found the cost was the wrong side of £200 for 2017 maps (this was in May!) I decided to stick with the 2013 maps (in a 2016 car 🙄) and wait until the 2019 release (as they seem to be done every two years) before trying again. I haven't yet but I may try again this weekend and see if the latest maps are available. It was straightforward as far as I went, you just need a micro SD card reader, which are readily available from your local tropical rainforest.
  25. Happy to report that the bubbling has disappeared (bet that just cursed it). I guess eventually the air worked it way out of the system.
