    would recommend oil/filter,,coolant and brake fluid change but you were prolly going to do that anyway...!! hope the tyres aren't flat spotted after standing so long...

    CVT Transmission Oil

    i'd say if you're towing with cvt then a change of fluid is deffo a good idea. i notice the towing weight allowance has dropped on the cvt versus torque converter. as for the fluid i would try an indy autobox specialist first as yours won't be the only cvt they're likely to be doing,,might work out cheaper than a subaru dealer. either way changing the fluid will be a lot cheaper than a new box...😉

  8. are the corresponding wires the same colour ?.. if so you could bridge them temporarily to check the seat functions as it should ? or check them with a multimeter..

    Buyers Guide // Newbie // 3.0 spec B

    i'd add ...check the droplinks are in good nick, they cause annoying rattles..also the bushes in the front lower arms...not expensive. the spec b's are usually on bilsteins which do corrode over time, many might have been changed to alternative coilovers. again check for any knocking. engines as stated ^^^ are pretty bulletproof if regularily treated to a decent 5-30 or 5-40 you could do worse than read some threads on

    New tyre recommendations

    bearing in mind the season you might be wise to think about all-season tyres if you don't fancy winters... lot of good feedback on michelin cross climates... nokian seem popular too..
  11. what's the idea behind the front numberplate ?
  12. at that mileage good chance of crank letting go sooner or later...even with meticulous service history.... ^^see post above.,

    How many miles per gallon are you getting?

    24-5 on my OB mixed driving...over 30+ on long runs...using S mode daily and keeping S# for annoying bmws.
  14. try don't be tempted to buy cheapo service parts, genuine is best.
