    Head unit upgrade

    I took a photo in and the guy went through his database of cables available for the XV and none of them look like it, I've attached a pic below showing all of the cables which attach to the back of the stereo circled in Red.. I'll give them a call on Tuesday and see what they suggest next other than they fit it for me, tbh at the moment I'm even tempted to do that.
  3. That still does not answer the question. If coolant never got into the oil why is the bottom end trashed unless the engine was overheating, otherwise what destroys the bottom end? I agree is it is high mileage then it is a no brainer. "Short version is the crank bearings are often found to have been damaged" by what?

  5. Hi everyone had a bugeye wrx years ago time for an sti 😀
  6. Can anyone help. I have a Subaru forester 05 and water is leaking from one of the front headlight washer spray nozzles. It opens correctly but when it sprays water just pours out from under the car. The other side is working perfectly. Both open and pop out correctly but there is obviously a leak somewhere. Any ideas what I have to do to fix it?

  8. Hi. After Carbon fibre wrc style mirrors for a classic impreza (GC8). Genuine carbon ones that is. Thanks Mark
  9. Hi all, been a member on here for a while but probably not as active as others! Anyway enough Bull****, I finally got the subaru on the road and tested today and can't believe what I've been missing. Took 5yr but worth it just for the grin factor alone.
  10. Just as a slight side note, FFS, LC and AL is prop not a great idea on the stock 2.5 as they are pretty fragile at best.
  11. Hi Guys is it me. Here is a picture of driver side droplink all cool .but passenger side looks like something wrong can someone looks bent to me back in garage next week under warranty probably used cheap droplinks can you nice people confirm thanks
  12. OK mate thanks found out its the bottom end 😞 if anyone knows someone selling a second hand engine please let me know? thank you
  13. Yeh they mainly US market . I would look at Nokian I linked or Michelin crossclimate + Myself and few customers run the Nokians and they are a proper quality all weather tyre, Plenty other choices but nokian weatherproof ratings in wet braking and noise hard beat plus it carrying the 3peak snow test rating yet price is sensible .
  14. hi there all scooby owners, i recently bought a petter solberg version 2004 model, so far, so good, i would like to put a bit of bling under the bonnet with coloured silicone hose pipes, where`s the best place to buy from, i did try ebay but they were all the same size pipe, lol got me there! so the shapes must be correct and the internal size should be true, cheers slider.
  15. Just to add, it's a SG facelift model...
  16. Last week
  17. I do love that the new fozzies aren't a scratch on the old ones. Maybe I'm biased owning an 06 XT (which I guess is newer than some) but i like the feeling that there is a cosy cult following out there...(rightly or wrongly)
  18. fourth gen around 2013 for transition to chain . All ealry 2.5s will have head gaskets fail at some point due to gaskets materials used and sealing area stresses of the block, oil used and service points along with usage type and long running faults like missing and fuelling make big difference. Due to boxer design oil sits around HG joint and as contains solvents and corrosives from combustion it slowly attacking the gasket and 2.5 block stresses the HG more. Most I see are around 80 to 120k, caught early or done in advance at high mileage as a service precaution and it not overly costly. NA engines easier deal with generally . 2.5 is nice in forester but as a used reliable low hassle/cost car can be risky as could have hassle diagnosing fault, finding good garage do work & get a bill for as much as paid for the used forester. If buy a 2'.5 be sure price was right and you fully aware repair costs and prepared to deal with it . I see lot of people who not hence why don't recommend .
  19. once checked switch wiring and power earths values (can also ohm test the heater elements) then good way go is used seat, even if strip down you can't repair element only wiring to it and seat cushion switch. As a shop I can't strip them as becomes too costly be viable and no way know if even repairable so replacing seat way to go in cost and turn around .
  20. I am trying to sell my dead brother's Impreza. It is extremely rare, a JDM, STI, 333bhp. I have advertised it in Autotrader and on facebook, but sadly I only seem to be contacted by time wasters. I know very little about Subarus all I know is my brother loved his car and for this reason I would like to sell it to someone who is an enthusiast. Can anyone suggest anywhere to advertise it? Or does anyone know if someone is looking for an Impreza?
  21. As title suggests I'm after a wrx sti prodrive edition. Hawkeye. Only.* Willing to travel for the right car* Looking at this one in wales does anyone know the car or the dealer. https://www.pistonheads.com/classifieds/used-cars/subaru/impreza-sti/subaru-impreza-2-5-wrx-sti-type-uk-ppp/9772517
  22. A word of warning though. If you use citric acid make sure you paint or rust protect any surfaces that will be on show as they will immediately rust again, if the come into contact with conditions to create rust.
  23. Just a 2002 wrx with a body kit by the looks of it. As above depends if its your cup of tea or not.
  24. I'm amazed no one has snapped this up as a fun toy given the price 😮
