  1. Wondered where this post was. Welcome to mod team Tidgy.
  2. Ah shame. Keep an eye out. Some good examples out and about.
  3. I'm on 178k miles. I service every 3k or sooner depends on time since last service and what I want to do with it. If it's looked after, it'll do you well.
  4. Have you checked the ECU for any error codes? There is a guide on here for how to do it. On classics, there are two black connectors below the steering column. Connect those up, turn the ignition on and count the "check engine" flashes. A long flash is a 10, a short flash is a 1. I'd recommend videoing the flashes so you can watch it back. Once you have your numbers check them against the list on the forum. There is also a guide on how to clear the codes.
  5. I had mine mapped at roughly 160k miles. Had no issues. Keep it looked after with regular servicing and don't treat it like a shitbox.
  6. Do you have a print out of the alignment?
  7. Put it on a 4 wheel alignment gadget. Does the rear have camber bolts?
  8. Apparently the extra space can stress wheel bearings and they go prematurely. Only based on internet research. I haven't had first hand experience with them
  9. Have you considered getting the whole car wrapped?
  10. Have you tried a different radio? May be an issue with the RCA sockets.
  11. What car is it for? I have a 4-1 gauge that shows boost, oil temp, oil pressure and voltage. Been in the car almost two years now. Sits in a single pod at the bottom of the driver's pillar. I'll dig out a picture.
  12. Can they offer finance on a car that is technically not being sold as a road worthy car? Keen to know any legality behind it. One of those my mate said that he's got a mate in fanance that once spoke to the owner of a salami stand who once owned a mouse trap and he got told that they can only offer finance on a car that will outlive it's financed term? Almost offering its own guarantee. Something like that.
  13. Could do with some more information. Does it do it at particular times? What car is it?
  14. Sorry I'm late to the party. My classic started running extremely rich. It bore washed and the oil was very thin. Fortunately I did go for a Dyno when noticing something untoward. The afr was so rich it was off the scale. Turned out to be the MAF. I switched that and had it mapped again. All good since. For the cost of a Dyno, I'd say go get it checked atleast. Keep an eye on your oil and if it's smoking, I wonder if your oil is already thinned and seeping past seals. The end result is a lot more costly than a diagnostic Dyno and possible remap.
  15. Ha I think all insurers are the same. When it comes to paying out they'd all rather do you over than pay out. Never mind you've been paying £500/yr for the past 6yrs with them.
  16. Does it start with k and end with eith Michaels? Have been previously insured by them. By not saying anything at all about them I also agree with what you say. I am currently insured with flux though, rather worrying.
  17. You would need to call Subaru and give them the chassis number I'd imagine. Hopefully they can help.
  18. If not done for 2 years I'd say it's more than likely a plug issue.
