  1. had this issue couple years back when i was at the dealership. stereo doesn't come with security code from factory but the owners can choose to put a security code as some of these are security enabled stereos. there is a way to bypass those using select monitor with a special code. i did this once only and im pretty sure i have the code written somewhere. long shot but if you can make your way to the shop, i can check if my scanner can crack that code. i might also have a stereo that you might be able to try
  2. $200 for the whole set only to cs members
  3. im wrecking a gt legacy if you need the brakes, i have the whole set atm. for brake pads i would suggest getting EBC Yellow or Blue Stuff. they are really good for track use.
  4. sure just pop in and see me ill quickly check it for you. cheers
  5. @adamp. first of all welcome to the forum. you can get a lot of useful info about your car from here. members are great with lots and lots of knowledge. now if you need your car scanned than just pop in and see me, we dont charge scan fee for club sub members. as far as you are an active member here in the forum, you will get all the benefits from us as the rest of the members get. Cheers. AJAY
  6. i tend to stay away from engine flush. as @pedro stated if the engine has sludge (which we cant visually see form just opening the filler cap), putting flush in makes it break down and go down the sump and all over in the engine. just by draining the oil only some portion of that sludge will drain, with high possibility of that sludge getting stuck and blocking the strainer, making the risk of your engine going bang sooner than expected
  7. well this sucks. pre-facelift legacies have the added extra loom for 4 pin brake light switch. facelifts dont. but can be done with the right pinouts from BCM and ECU.
  8. will be worth looking at these link. its a known problem on the newer generation engines. burning 1litre every 2000 km will be like 6.5 litres of refill before every service. so who will pay for that 6.5 litres (if its consuming that much). Dealer or the customer? And this TSB
  9. its normally customer preference when it comes to oil filters in our shop. we use Valvoline oil filters (unless customer requests for genuine). but as for ATF, Air and Cabin, we only use genuine. ATF filters are external on your model, located behind the L/H fender. access it by removing the battery.
  10. the only difference between genuine Subaru and aftermarket ones are the release bearings. aftermarket release bearing inner sleeve that slides on the gearbox shaft has a plastic housing whereas genuine ones are full metal housing. thats what makes me lean more towards genuine. RRP genuine is around $725.
  11. same thing happening with me.
  12. no need to change sump, newer models have been fitted with twin scroll sumps. from memory i think its v11 onwards that have come with twin scroll sumps from factory.
  13. lol i always commute to Wanganui. joys of having in-laws there.
  14. contact Leon he can custom make these.
  15. Cool no worries mate. Keen to see how your one goes on the dyno tomorrow
