  1. Hey all. I'm new to the forum so please don't bite my head off if this isn't the place to post this content. I had a question regarding my 99' Impreza SRX (non-turbo). Is it possible to switch a SRX bonnet (no scoop) for say, a WRX bonnet with a scoop? Or does a car have to have turbo for a scoop? I have found the same Impreza colour (Gun Metal Grey) scoop bonnet on Trade Me and was wondering if I could even attempt to switch that with mine. Also, the bonnet I have seen on Trade Me is currently sitting on a hatchback. Would that effect fitting if my body model is a sedan? Thank you in advance for any questions answered
  2. 08’ Impreza 2.0R manual, 214xxx k’s. I have had the car for about a week and I’ve noticed when driving it that the car has a slow/flat/sluggish spot around 2000 until 2500 rpm where it struggles to accelerate. The revs kind of fluctuate up and down around and it slowly climbs until it hits around 3k rpm and it accelerates fine. Some days are worse than others, sometimes it happens, sometimes it does not. My first guesses are are spark plugs and leads or something wrong where it’s starving it from fuel? Maybe a fuel pump or the likes of. Any ideas?? Thanks guys.
  3. Hey team Ive managed me score myself a nice deal on a new daily driver which is an 08’ Subaru Impreza 2.0 Manual. Super nice car for the price and really my first decent car that I’ve owned. I’m looking for advice on lowering the car at some stage, what sort of route to take, easy and sensible options for this car. I was wondering is struts and springs from a WRX or S-GT from the same era would be an idea? I reckon these cars look super nice on a decent set of wheels and a wee bit lower to the ground. Correct me if I’m wrong but the stud pattern for the wheels is 5x100? Could anyone advise me on the offset of the wheels, etc for when buying aftermarket wheels? I’m not that clued up on them. and for anyone who has owned the same sort of car, what are some general modifications you did to the car to improve anything from basic engine performance, driveability, servicing, and general things I should keep and eye out for, whether it could be problematic or not? Any help is appreciated Cheers.
  4. In lieu of a new Technical board structure being implemented soon, here are the workings for the new FAQ posts to replace all technical stickies, and hopefully most of your searches. This is a temporary post because it isn't helping anyone locked away while I'm too busy to finish it. Please post additional useful links as a new post for a Mod to add to the list. Mods, I've tried to categorise things logically and keep double-ups to a minimum. PM me any questions.

  5. So I bought an old 1994 impreza hx 4wd last year and the shifter bushings have completely worn out. The play in gear feels just like neutral. I have been searching high and low for new bushings or even the whole replacement assembly but have had no luck. Does anyone know where I can locate some, aftermarket or OEM I'm not fussed, Cheers
  6. Hey guys so recently my newly-bought WRX refused to start and the garage I got it towed back to who installed my alarm - have diagnosed it as a fuel pump issue. I'll need a new fuel pump put in. I just want to know if a quote of $550 is a fair price or am I getting ripped off? At the time of the fault I would have had the car for less than a month and I would have done less than 1000kms in it lol. So I'm preparing for a motor vehicle disputes tribunal case.. as a former employee of mvdt I think it could get to that stage.
  7. Hi Team, I am after some roof racks for my 2002 Impreza which is proving to be an absolute nightmare!! I have been to a few placed to see what my options are, turns out there pretty much aren't any. The only solution that has been offered is having perm fixed Thule racks installed at a cost of $900.... Something about this doesn't seem right to me as Subaru's are well known for they're durability and sporty outdoors identity. I cant be the only one that is having this issue so just appealing for some advice, tips, options or hacks to help get some racks on my car! Any feedback will be greatly received!! Thanks in advance
  8. So I recently bought a 1994 Impreza 1.8l for my first car and I've been having a couple small issues with it. Occasionally it just won't start, the engine turns over but won't fire. This doesn't happen very frequently, maybe three or four times over the last couple months I've owned it, and seems to happen when I am restarting the car after just turning it off. Cheers in advance for any help given
  9. Hi there, sorry for the noob questions but my wrx with an ej205 has a hose in the engine bay that goes no where, just wondering if anyone has any ideas, cheers. The picture was too big for the forum so here's a link to my question on facebook.
  10. Subaru of New Zealand has issued a recall of some 2004 - 2007 Impreza and WRX: Source:
  11. Hey guys looking for some advice here. yesterday i parked my un-warranted Sub on a public road in wellington, and got absolutely destroyed with fines. $200 for: Operated an unlicensed motor vehicle-parked vehicle and another one issued at the same time for: No evidence of vehicle inspection also $200. now i have heard that i could write a letter saying that i am a poor student and provide evidence that i have now got a warrant and possibly get the fine waived or i could go to court but i am not sure what the costs or risks are involved with doing that. any help would be greatly appreciated cheers.
  12. New to the forum and unsure if there's a 'Spotted' thread, tried to search, but saw this motor on Tory St a couple of months ago and thought it looked hell mean. The owner is probably on here somewhere Subaru Impreza STI Wagon by AlexDenvorB, on Flickr
