    tbh i think you're going to struggle, exceptionally rare even in US and AUS, so even a barn find might be hard to source.. how about a nice Leggy instead..😀

    Battery disconnected while driving

    not sure tbh but often a cure is to disconnect the battery again for at least 30 mins. then reconnect and try again. it might have caused a code to get logged which may need clearing.

    Looking for a Gear Stick Gaitor for 2009 WRX

    why not remove it and make a new one using the old one as a template...not difficult if you know someone handy with a sewing machine. easy enough to source a square of black leather.. just an idea..
  7. at £400 whats not to like ? even if it needs a new window motor or switch... not sure but would have thought all windows would be on one fuse... unless it's a complete dog it'll be worth more in parts !!!
  8. diesels can and have been problematic, with known issues...could you not source a replacement lump if the rest of the car is in good nick ?

    Back to the Subaru brand.

    all i know is early ones had crank/big end problems, later ones were supposedly better but there are plenty stories of them going bang at 80-90k..... advice is generally to go tried and tested petrol, but main thing is a FSH and stick to regular servicing at the recommended intervals.. for every story about 200k plus with no issues there are equal stories of terminal trouble. fwiw subaru aren't going to make diesels after this year. they were late to the party and are getting out early. draw your own conclusions !!

    GC8 Rear Light Seal or similar...🙂
  15. did you put something on the passenger seat ?? it's pretty sensitive so might it be the belt alarm ? or not .
