  1. that's super cheap but nay, go for 2 layer as minimum unless budget is tight. either way try for size before you buy !
  2. chicane also have a range of suits and kits http://www.chicane.co.nz/products.asp?CategoryID=11
  3. lexan expensive ? every gram counts. my 2 door frenchie is heavier than my old 5-door golf !
  4. that would make sense but the sedan weight 1270kg matches. dry weight is usually stated as such.
  5. i find some of the weights listed incredulous... v5/6 type r coupes only 1200kg ? the nz brochures list as 1260kg ! nz sti wagons 1310kg
  6. complain to your local council !
  7. people pay good money to get bangs, pops and backfires. every new sporty car seems to do this now.
  8. tire rack has a good online comparator where you can try various wheels on your car.
  9. what size are the rotors ? mine are 340mm brembos behind an open lattice style wheel. find a monoblock type wheel design rather than an open spoke style ?
  10. ^^^ agreed stock gen 5 have one of the worst looking guard/stock wheel combos. i prefer tyres to fit squarely on the rim; no bloat, definitely no stretch ! this prompted me to seek out the specs on my megane wheels - a very un-subaru like 19 x 8.25 et65 with 235/35-19 tyres not seen such high offset before.
  11. what is all this talk of "valuing" ? do you mean valving ? or are you talking about value for money ?
  12. a sad disease that afflicts almost all sporty cars. they become more powerful but also fatter, softer, less hardcore.
  13. sub nz seem a bit slack on the news... they didn't even mention the levorg won the 2017 btcc ? https://www.caradvice.com.au/669960/subaru-wrx-sti-type-ra-r/
