    I mentioned Mr B as in his posts it sounds like he still works on cars. He also talks a lot of sense and seems to know his stuff. I would be happy for him to work on my car. I do not know his exact location but know he is in your part of the country.

    Got this from another forum - be aware This is a person to avoid mate....remember this name & company.....Iโ€™m absolutely shocked to even see him on Facebook,heโ€™s stolen multiple 10s of thousands of pounds from people over the years. He disappears for a while then comes back, no doubt because itโ€™s Christmas

    I used TDRacing when I had this issue. Left the air pump in place but mapped it out and it didn't take long at all. Was also a lot cheaper than getting a used pump.

    Heres one. I'll need better weather for more. Booked in at Subaru 4 You, in a week or so for a checkup. I have a small list of niggles that I'll get cracking through (squeaky seat belts, missing mudflaps etc).

    I've just discovered this exhaust is made by Toyosports, aka questionable quality, putting it politely. It won't be getting fitted. Thanks for the help any way, very much appreciated ๐Ÿ‘

    Its a justifiable viewpoint, totally understandable however you may be sworn to secrecy with @Mr B as he has maintained mysterious anonymity to date ๐Ÿ˜

    From what I know (word of mouth / reputation etc) they are fair in their pricing - however hold out for a @Mr B response as he should provide an alternative - in theory his own place?? And TBF he knows a thing or two about Fozzys that is for sure ๐Ÿ˜

    I don't think it is entirely to please the masses but to do with the good sales run they have had as well. Record breaking thanks partly to VW diesel gate, who ironically have decided to push electric, laughable. Also the masses want tech in there car which just adds a greater chance of something going wrong. My 2007 WRX has nothing like that and I like it that way. Less to go wrong. It all just works. To keep up Subaru has had to do the same as the rest. All manufactures have there own recalls. BMW's catching fire, Fords ecoboosts overheating. The Focus RS very bad engine problems. Do these new Subaru owners actually look after their cars or treat like previous sh*t boxes or even now how to? Young uns today have no idea, cause they may get some dirt on them, god forbid. As most are acquired on PCP they do not worry about looking after it either as they are going to give it back and swap it for another as most get stuck in the agreement, insanity. They are becoming throw away items, and we want the world to become green. As he points out it is really a trend for all manufactures. They don't make cars like they did in the 80-90s, look at the 2JZ that will never happen again. Sign of the times I am afraid.

    Doesn't look as bad as some I've seen, on my old v3uk the rear strutt tops and bumper mounts had almost completely disappeared ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Pull the boot linings out and check the rear arch "wheel wells" and seams around the rear strutt tops , if you haven't already done so stu .

    Yeah the 240 z allways looked upon as the one to have probably because it was the first Z they brought out but the best one is the late 260z 2 seater and the rarerest of em all The new jdm wagon I want to put a splitter on the front but was told that the wings or was it the bumper is different on the wagon also wanted a blob sti scoop but thatโ€™s different as well also looking for the brackets for the fog lights if anyone has any performance wise Iโ€™m putting my Hayward Scott back box on and thatโ€™s it,going down my mates garage for a four wheel alignment and thatโ€™s about it,itโ€™s plenty quick enough as it is so basically keeping it standard,oh yeah forgot itโ€™s blue and will be putting a set of white bora Wheels or something like that as my sti has the gold and I see a wagon with white wheels when I was in Greenhithe last week and it looked pretty cool so Iโ€™m going down that root,as itโ€™s my everyday car Iโ€™m not going mad with it although itโ€™ll probably only do about 4000 miles a year

    Just thought it might be worth passing this on. Been doing a lot of night driving on rural roads recently and with the rain and traffic film on the screen and oncoming headlights it's been difficult. I've tried all sorts of methods to get the traffic film off, and even thought Rainex might help, but it made the problem worse. At the suggestion of someone at Wilco Motor Spares, I tried detergent and amazingly it took off not only the traffic film but the Rainex too. I used one Tesco (other brands are available!) non-bio detergent tablet (like for washing clothes) crushed up with a small amount of water and spread it all over the screen with a sponge. It was left for about 5 minutes and then well rinsed off with water - result, a clearer cleaner windscreen than I've had all winter and it cost next to nothing.

    I filled up with premium yesterday but no change so far. And it's getting very lazy starting in the mornings. I've booked it into Adams Brothers in Aylesbury for a diagnostic. They're Subaru specialists.

    I know it's addictive ๐Ÿ™‚ That's why I have taken it slow so far. But I will have had the car for 3 years in June and it needs some changes. Not a huge fan of the stock wheels on the 11 - 14 STI so want to change those too. I will keep a camera handy and make sure to film/take pictures for updates. Any other upgrades people think are worth doing please let me know (and what I should look at upgrading first)

    Depending on mileage since plugs changed (10k or so) good to check / change. Depends on the tool they use not all will throw up the fault codes also if you had better octane fuel in the tubes at the time it may not show an error?

    Hi all I am upgrading the suspension on the track car and therefore have these HSD units for sale. They are NOT that old. Obviously adjustable spring platforms and rebound adjuster knob on the top of the shocks. Comes with pillow ball adjustable top mounts, well at least on the front, not removed the rears yet. From a 53 plate STi with 5 x 100 PCD Looking for ยฃ220, can post at cost

    I agree. I went down when my secondary air pump failed to get it mapped out as was cheaper than replacing the pump (which is only used on cold starts). Really friendly and helpful and couldn't stop myself asking questions while I was there. Obviously that lead to talks of more power lol ๐Ÿ™‚

    Depends on what you would like out of your motor. I would suggest a a good bespoke map, I am also completing the cooling mod to protect No4 cylinder as well. If you plan on doing track days look at: baffle for the sump, oil cooler oil pickup rubber attachment Petrol surge / lift tank with fuel pressure regulator

    They are not but takes a fair few miles for the ECU to 'learn' the drop in octane - It may not just be the drop in octane though that is affecting the performance - I have noticed increased amounts of Ethanol being included in pump fuel now

    Brakes are an easy but dirty job. If you take the disks off make sure the hub surface is spotless. The disk must set squarely onto the hub else you will get a warp. Ideally you should check for runout with a dial gauge if you want to be sure. I have seen countless vids on youtube and not one mentions this.

    Updated recently from a 65 reg diesel to a 69 reg petrol - most impressed with the way that all the electronics have been sharpened up. And the extra toys. Economy isn't that far adrift either. And the front end does look good ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Ahhhhhh ok... that makes sense as to why it's a bit hush hush on here then!!! Well, as someone who never owned a Subaru before and went from a Focus 1.6tdci to a 2.5 Forester XT, I'm keen to learn and behave! I've (we've...wife and I ๐Ÿ™„) owned the foz for probably just over half a year. It's developed a couple issues recently, dead window winder on the drivers side (inconvenient with our Christmas travels and ferry check in booths!!!), and then a dead low beam on the passenger side. I had a spare bulb in the car which I tried, but alas, no joy, the condensation in the headlight leads me to believe it's the ballast as well. I'd like to try and dry it out, but without a garage (or a driveway) to work in, I think I'm going to have to visit the pro's!

    I have LOTS of Halfords tool along with other brands but when you brake a rachet that I have had for over 15 years but because it said Halfords on it They gave me a new one straight away no questions asked. I would use Halfords any day

    I always fill the oil filter with oil prior to refitting so the engine is not sucking on air when restarting, echo above though pulling the sensor is to cold crank the engine after the oil has been replaced

    I can't advise on the screws but these cars are known for the wires feeding the rear gate to break within the boots carrying the wiring loom between the body and the gate, near the rear hinges. The power for the wiper, and other services such as lights, are in the right hand side boot. Often break. If you are sure this isn't the problem, a new motor might solve the problem; however if the wires are broken, new motor wont work. Check if not already by "peeling" back the rubber boot and check for breaks.

    Guess that was a heater control circuit low ? exact codes/details enables far better answers . euro car parts about last people ever want use if want quality parts or real value . They a bit like sports direct buying known brand names and sticking those brands on very poor quality parts and retail it at twice real price then discount code it make consumers think it sale of the decade when in reality it overpriced tat The OEM sensors are denso and denso is all we use as less problems out the packet and lasts properly . You can test heater circuit with incandescent bulb . you want test heater element resistance in old and new sensor too .

    What other info did you get with the o2 fault e.g open circuit or short to ground etc as it could be wiring also was it a genuine sensor or a copy part coz a few folk on here have had trouble with non oe sensors ๐Ÿ‘

    No bud not at all , it was sold as a car with a ยฃ12k built engine . I was just pointing out that even if it was built for a employee ,you'd expect at least a minimum level of skill to be used by tuning company engine builders . I'm a self employed plasterer that apparently builds to a better standard on the wifes kitchen table ๐Ÿค . Will be interesting to see what they have to say about it, though .

    I have received no additional response form Scooby Clinic. They have already formal stated any liability is between myself and the dealer so I know it will definitely be down to me to address. I had spoken to the dealer before xmas and shared my expectations of him in this instance which would be cost of labour for the rebuild and cost of a new set of Cosworth or equivalent capable head gaskets - This I thought was fair. I will be getting a quote for the rebuild labour sent so I can have that discussion with him outside of the rest of the build communications.
