  2. It’s a great car (2016 Levorg 1.6 GT) 1.6 turbo works really well and you will find yourself going faster than you think. Very reliable too. I love it. See my posts about sorting out the only major drawback, which is the lack of a proper spare wheel! My local village garage services it with no problems (as with my previous Foresters and Outback).

  3. Got the sill covers off, in great shape thankfully! Cleaned the crap off and sprayed with some wd40 and they came up nicely. So the only rot I have found so far is that small plague in the boot. Happy so far...

  4. @Rocket Gold Star you’ve obviously gone to a great deal of trouble to source and find alternatives and reasonably priced. I figure the average car owner is not going to do that and will just have to rock up at the dealers and pay the man. Wheel bearings and front pads seem to be a feature that crops up regularly. I honestly can not remember having to think about issues such as these within the warranty period of the cars. (Apologies for going way off subject during this thread)

  5. To continue with this subject of brake pads, and also an update on the my rear wheel bearings which I did in a previous posting. I sent for rear brake pads from Germany through Autodoc GMbh. They cost £33.20 including postage and 'safe order' return. Thing is I wasn't sure how many bits were in the kit. The make is Metelli, Italian, which is better than Chinese. They arrived today, and all there was in the package was 4 rear brake pads. although the inner shims were already fitted and maybe bonded on. Plus there was a general EU instruction how to safely fit brake pads in various language

  6. Thanks guys for the tips/advice. Even pattern part replacement is stupid money - £175 from ICP when I only need the bracket - so got a local garage to weld the bracket up. Can't be any worse than any part I might be able to fabricate myself 😝 Fit this morning headlight beam already looking better 👍

  7. The Early Exiga we’re sold in Japan, Indonesia and Australia (Legacy Exiga) from 2009 they have lots of other goodies like lane departure etc. A lot of Japanese go for a top of the range Sony sound system inc TV. Unfortunately they don’t work in the uk so a retro fit unit has to be fitted. The newer ones will be more expensive!! Make sure if you get one you get the cam belt etc changed and change all oils etc. As you will probably get no service history. Still can’t get a drivers hand book in English.

  8. Hi everyone, I have just joined as I am now a proud owner of my first Subaru. It is a Japanese import, an 08 Exiga GT. 2 litre turbo, 220 hp, 5 speed auto with Si drive. I was looking for a 4x4 estate and saw this one at a nearby importer, really liked the spec and it has 7 seats and when the are all folded down you have a vast loading bay. Plenty of room for my golf buggy and clubs. Unfortunately with the corona virus restrictions I have not has chance to give it a good road test. Are there any other Exiga owners out there??

  11. I've had mine since January2020, it's a very good car. Loads of space, very good to drive, well screwed together, lots of safety tech. It's been totally reliable, no problems at all. Plenty of poke, it has the same performance as my old Mercedes 6 cylinder 2.8L E-Class estate. Great handling. Servicing: it's worth getting it done at a Subaru dealer once a year for software updates etc, in your case it would mean an annual trip to Keith Price in Abergavenny. Levorg 1.6 is a very underrated car, the CVT is perfectly matched to the sweet smooth engine, and behaves very differently to other CVTs.

  12. @kash0613 Looks great and I’m sure you’ll be counting the days down. I think it’s far to say that we are doing our bit to help the economy bounce back after the Covid situation! 😄 is that the colour you’ve chosen? What finally decided you to move away from the Subaru? My RAV is on UK soil and still due at the end of the month, fingers crossed. I went for a red body and black roof combination.

  13. I was,but I've decided,because of our caravan to have one more fun petrol car before I go full electric next time....by that time we plan to give up the tin shed and go for slightly more comfy holidays. As such I've decided to bypass a plug in hybrid for the moment. So,I've ordered the Cupra Formentor and delivery is September due to it being a factory order with a retractable tow bar etc. By that time the xv will be three and ready for its first mot. See what you have done Ernie,I've told my wife it's your fault!

  14. @Jay762 looks like you identified the problem - Thanks! The removable centre part (adapter) of the new Bosch blade unit I fitted looked like this: But on older units, looked like this: So, the fins, and small square block in the centre, ensure the blade clicks into the wiper arm properly. I managed to get a couple of these from a local auto-parts which keeps a box of them. So for any other newbie with this problem - try your local auto-parts - or make sure you keep the adapter part when you ditch an older worn blade unit.

  15. I know we’ve said it before but buying bits for the Subaru is a pain. Are the Michelin’s CrossClimates? Hope it’s all sorted now for you? I saw a MG HS PHEV today driving through Chesterfield, it looked really nice as we were behind and then along side we were able to get a good eyeball.
