    I had the Sound system upgraded. New toys installed, as follows: 1. Alpine double din head unit W325BT with advanced bluetooth; 2. Focal component speakers and tweets all round; 3. Pioneer 10" active sub and integrated amp in the back; and 4. Sound deadening installed throughout the rear. A great job by Audio Images in BD1, highly recommended. Sounds crisp and perfect for my music/hands free phone needs. Only the deep bass is audible from outside with the (tapered) windows closed. I'll post pics when possible.

    Had the seatbelts replaced today. The original beige belts were frayed and potentially unsafe if ever needed. So swapped for black belts from another H6. Rocker cover gasket to be done to address an oil leak, as well as the caliper sliding bolt on the offside rear. 10" Sub and amp on order to improve sound quality and give it some deep bass and component speakers being considered. Next week: HID kit. Overall the H6 is going well, fun to drive and has already been used to shift a wardrobe and 8ft whiteboard to the new premises. Definitely a multi skilled machine!

    Yes definitely important to use proper trolley jacks. The tyres were fitted at my regular tyre supplier. He has a good stock of high quality german part worn winter imports and I've put them on my last 3 BMWs (One 5 series & two 7 series) - makes a world of difference esp when averages are below 6deg C. Looking fwd to see how they perform when the really wintry stuff hits. We've already had our first (very light) dusting of snow last week so only a matter of time.

  7. Hey guys, Bought this lovely Outback H6 2nd Gen a few weeks back, my first ever Subaru. Always been a BMW man. Very impressed with it so far, the autobox with the 3.0 flat six boxer engine & AWD make it perfect for this time of year. Also we had our first sprinkling of snow this morning and the heated windscreen & seats are excellent. I took it down to Reading a couple of weeks ago and back to Yorkshire, it performed faultlessly and mpg was not too bad. I'm yet to do a brim to brim calculation but it seems it was high 20s overall. Fitted a new custom made exhaust system post cat with a 5" rolled end. It burbles nicely and not too loud at motorway speeds. Now then, wheel options... stick with stock and bigger winter tyres or change them? They are diamond cut/polished so a refurb will be £££. If change then to what? Any suggestions welcome!
