    Off the top of my head... @JGM Lowered silver outback @ADIKT Lowered black outback @1randomkiwi silver BE 3.0 @A_J_T Silver BE sedan, think it's a GT and her name is ruby. @sobanoodle Black BL9, which at some stage will have every available after market exhaust and suspension/handling component fitted to it. @delta 3.0 Outback (can't remember colour), has/will soon have a @V7STI1992 white BP 3.0R wagon with some sweet recaro seats. @Chase Black (?) BP GT wagon with tein springs. @Andy_Mac Blue BP GTB wagon with a sweet N7 dash isntall. @Invisible everyone knows his car.... @thewabbit1 white BH GTB wagon @whitebait19 white (?) BH lancaster wagon. @Teufel a BP 3.0R of some description @killervq30de a BP GTB, I think? no idea whether wagon or sedan... And @Kiwi_Fozze and @McDoof owned 3.0R legacies, but that was before my time.... And @Subru will own a turbo legacy eventually, he just doesn't know it yet.... There will be plenty more...these are just people who post regularly or have/had a 3.0R...I will have missed quite a few recent additions I think. Fixed it for you

    May as well cancel your insurance policy and just #YOLO it then, do you think if you stack it the insurance assessor isn't going to notice your adjusties and immediately void your insurance?

    LOL that is something i would do if i had the money and personality to match (so its probably just as well i don't haha). i'm really impressed, i'm going kind of low key with my things but this guys totally in your face about it got those wheel caps, the big emblem, the seat covers, i wanna see more of the interior. what has he done about the dash panel for example??? and is that a batman mug on his center console front? . plate text is a bit cheesy though... *oh the irony* ps. these just arrived my sister gifted me this , i havent decided where its going yet and i have this on my ebay watchlist really half minded whether i should or not... not like my cars even black so my exterior build is bound to end up in the car crimes thread one of these days and probably on various fail blogs ! and then it dawned on batbaruman that despite having a cool boyracer car, he was always going to be a nerd

    The diameter of your rim means precisely three fifths of nothing in terms of getting power down (ok it means a little bit around sidewall flex but that's more of a 1000hp problem) The width of your tyre does. With 268kw, if I apply the jandle at anything below about 80kph it will break all 4 tyres loose. That's with reasonable quality 235/45/R17 on a 17x8 rim.

    Perhaps moving to Wellington might be the solution to your problems. No need for open windows if it's raining, cos its cold. If it's not raining, its cold. If it's cold, you better believe its damn cold. If it's sunny, yup, you guessed it, it's still f'n cold. No need for anything other the heater set on feet all year round.

    good luck bro and support your choice to keep it hush hush for now. you want to give them a fair chance without any name calling / abuse to put it right. all my best relationships in business have come from when things have gone wrong, i've pointed them out calmly and given the guys a chance to put it right. it shows me their character and that they're worth investing back in the future when they do right. everyone stuffs up and if they worth my time & money in future they can consider this a chance to earn that. on the other hand, those who don't have as much integrity after a fair chance is given should be named so others can form their own opinions based on your experience. hope yours goes all good !

    I freakin love having Ac... I also wouldnt cut a hole in the roof of an sti for a sunroof. Ra scoop? Hells yes. Actually quietly hunting for one for my v7 sti wagon... I think a scoop and those rear window vents on a wagon would look freakin baws

    That's an incorrect translation and not why they break actually. Basically the warning is to not OPEN them above 100kp/h, not use. They're more than happy to stay open above 100kph, it's just when muppets like my friend who decided it'd be a great idea to open the roof vent at 110, open it and the wind gets under it all of a sudden creating lots of shock load, which breaks the plastic or in some cases rips the entire thing off. Moral of the story, just don't open it over 100kp/h and if you do, just be very careful and hold onto it so it doesn't open with a shock.

    A while ago I replaced stock RSB (something like 15mm) with a 17mm STI GRB rear swaybar. Gained as much as I paid for it - i.e fark all Finally had a chance to upgrade to 21mm of Ultra Racing goodness - good lord she feels soooo much tighter now!

    Well, Exhaust done. Glorious she is! Sounds bloody good! Almost a straight pipe lol. I think there are 3 or four bends total, one resonator and a muffler at the end. I tells ya, brings out the proper goodness sound of twin scroll. Do approve of RAGE system if you have access to a welder and all that goodness They provided the parts but, this wee 340mm gap between midpipe and downpipe; They also provide a bullet resonator you could put in there if you want, they actually gave me enough pipe I could make both. But only flanges for one. Sounds glorious though. Edit: Also I needed to drill out the holes for the front and rear O2 sensor, not sure if they all come like that, but fitment is mint otherwise.

    The size of wheels on average cars these days has a lot to do with the ballooning scale of vehicles in general due to safety regulations. If you put smaller wheels on modern cars they look weirdly proportioned.

    Nah the dude was stumped. Had no idea why it wouldn't fit. I could have possibly looked for a different steering knuckle but thats more money and I'm not even sure what would fit. I wasn't happy to have to hammer it but I also wasn't going to call it quits after I was this deep in.

    A whole bunch of UltraRacing bits finally arrived. Took 2 days to get from Asia to Auckland, than another two days and numerous phone calls to get from DHL depot to my address. You'd expect a better service from one of the priciest couriers. EMS is just so much better.

    First up - the foot on the clutch all the way to the floor . . . . bugger me worked perfectly!!. Awesome thanks heaps. (see last para below) Secondly, I made the mistake of replying to you all individually via emails yesterday. . . . and then found out just now "Mail Delivery Failure". So it probably looks like I never responded to your tips and hints. My bad. So . . I had already replaced the battery and there was no whine from the fuel pump. Today with engine cranking , but not starting (on the key), there is still no power getting to the fuel pump, so no "whine". My next plan is to just follow the wire(s) from the fuel pump up to a relay to the ignition. Because the fuses/relays are in Japanese can someone tell me on this model where can I locate the fuel pump fuse and/or relay. (even tho I have checked all the fuses). I'm gonna recheck a relay which I thinks is the fuel pump relay, just cos it clicks, doesn't mean it's good. Note - my sister bought the Subaru at Turners, been stolen and de-registered. "We" had no idea about the foot on the clutch. Thanks again.

    While I like the sunroof in my Premium model, I don't think I've ever get one retro fitted. I can't imagine it being cheap and then you'd need all the electrics to go with it along with a new headlining. And, as you say, a high risk of leaking. IMHO, best option would be to fit some monsoon strips to the windows and wind them down a little to keep the air flowing throgh the cabin. Much cheaper in the long run.

    I got the ebc properly wired and relocated to somewhere that makes sense. Whoever installed it the first time just taped crap together, I soldered and put heat shrink on all connections. It was also mounted to the side of the steering column so I relocated it while I was at it.

    just wondering @Joker did you mean volunteers for tapatalk? I think the admin(s) should be able to sort it out through portal.the site as it is is fairly mobile friendly but tapatalk has obviously invested more in to the presentation layer there. they also offer native notifications etc. think the $10/month version gets the forum this functionality sign in as admin go to ips admin control panel install tapatalk plugin file https://tapatalk.com/download_IPBoard.php youll need api key from https://siteowners.tapatalk.com/landing/register there is some financial impact but doesn't look particularly heavy, more info on pricing structure here https://tapatalk.com/start-here.php edit : and just like @1randomkiwi said, google docs sheet for issue tracker is fairly easy. there are other options out there but would be overkill when google docs is free, offers long term stability , concurrency and version control.
