Hello everyone and apologies if this has been covered in depth already. I am after some advice. A while ago a rear strut failed so rather than replacing one unit I decided to give a set of coilovers a go. While this certainly transformed the handling of the car, the set in question (Spax RSX) have always given a very harsh ride. I appreciate there is always a compromise for the performance but for me the knocks and bangs are far OTT for everyday road use. I have now decided to take them off and I need to decide whether to buy an OEM kit and go back to original OR (and this is where I hope someone can help) are there other coilover brands for similar OEM money that still provide improved handling without suffering a boneshaking ride. Ideally I'm not looking at spending more than £1000. As a side note, does anyone know where I could get hold of an OEM kit? I'm not having much luck. CAR: 2004 Impreza WRX with PPP (non STI) Thank you for taking time to read this post, any suggestions welcome. Harry
Took the car in to get the AC looked at as it's been rubbish since I got the car (2012 diesel XV) 18 months ago. The garage tested and found a small leak in the condenser, a genuine Subaru part is going to cost in the region of £300, plus an hour and a half fitting and gas. Probably around £500/£550 all in. The garage are happy for me to get an aftermarket condenser and they will fit and fill it. Question is: has anyone used any aftermarket AC condensers, any to recommend /avoid. Or should I bite the bullet and go OEM? Online I can see aftermarket ranging from £70 to about £120, a denso one would cost around £100. That's a big saving if it lasts a reasonable length, most seem to have a 2 year guarantee. Comments and thoughts greatly appreciate.
Has anyone used one of these before to do touch ups to scratches/stone chips? I've got a few small scratches and a few small stone chips on my STI and am thinking about buying one to do the touch ups with. I know it's a skilled practice, just curious to if anyone has experience with them and how easy they are and how they look? http://m.ebay.com/itm/191840581233?_mwBanner=1
Hi All, I have just upgraded by head unit for a second time, so i have the following for sale: - JVC KD741BT - Original Subaru stereo from the car (plus the flip open tray under the original head unit) I will accept offers on both units. They both have their respective wiring looms but do not come with the tools needed to get your old one out etc. Pictures to follow. PM, email or text (email@example.com/07800975688). Thanks All Tim
