  1. No difference in suspension set-up between revs A-E.
  2. Urban selection series perhaps? Nothing extraordinary in this department though. Push start/keyless entry was introduced in MY08, shifters even earlier in MY06.
  3. There are two O2 sensors, are you sure you're replacing the right one? OEM ones are made by Denso, look up up the corresponding Denso part number and order one of those, significantly cheaper than OEM, direct fitment and everything. I had to order one a few years back, the cheapest Denso sensor I could source was from the UK actually.
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong by RSK is just a turbo B4 (JDM designation), K stands for a Kompressor in German . Same as GT-B in a wagon form. The trim bits you're referring to are just optional part numbers. You'd need a fair bit of luck finding a complete bumper with all three bits still attached.
  5. Thinking of sanblasting some calipers - who's a trusted reasonably priced go-to in Auckland and how much should I expect to pay for a full set to be blasted? Thinking of restoring the Brembles myself and then selling for a $$$ instead of asking for a $ in their current state. People seem to be too lazy to pay less and re-paint themselves.
  6. 2.5i have CVT transmission, having some known service history will be beneficial. Do not expect it to be super economical. Some come well specd will keyless access, steering wheel controls/cruise control etc. Others can be complete poverty spec.
  7. MY2006 Blitzen
  8. Drivetrain is no different to any other GT of the same era (4th gen BL/BP 06/2003 - 06/2008) - i.e a single turbo. Porsche Design were involved with the exterior, again nothing to do with the drivetrain. Post some pics for us. Some JDM catalogue goodness MY2005 Blitzen
  9. Test-drove a Porsche diesel. Unimpressed and somewhat disappointed.
  10. What you get when you buy XForce 3.0R do get very droney if opened up too much. You need a decent resonator in there, or beefier mufflers.
  11. Redline used to (or still) sell HKS and XForce to suit. I had Fujitsubo and HKS systems installed on my BR. Fujitsubo was loud and droney, HKS was sweet as. Hardly ever anything used comes for sale as these are fairly new and do not get modified as much as the previous generation.
  12. He did not have any rubbing issues with the older rims though. Even if the struts are shot they're still not the cause of the rubbing.
  13. My prediction: New shocks in Still rub +35 offset is your main issue, as @Andy_Mac said you will need to remedy that by guard rolling and/or camber mods.
