What have you done to your car today?

It did cross my mind but not sure if I'd use it enough to bother. The wheel came with all of those so will probably just flick them on.

I love cruise control - so mint for cruising on open roads

Maybe?

Took my car in for its latest recall last week.

Borrowed a 2019 XV from Winger... Man they are nice. Radar cruise on the motorway is awesome. Just remember to cancel it when you come to a roundabout 🤫😂

Hit up Winger about coming to the party for the HVAC debacle.... Will see what they say.

Tinkered with the ecu tune image a nudge for first start and drive home tomorrow. 

 

Let's see what happens. I'm not holding my breath, I'd have assumed the first start on a new motor would have been done a day or 2 prior to collection. 

 

We'll see.

Then you discover Radar Cruise Control...it makes you lazy - honestly!

Yep!

 

I drove a brand new Toyota Camry rental with radar cruise control from Queenstown to Chch last year - just set a distance and enjoy the drive for most of it

I've driven my Dad's 2016 Mazda 6 Limited (GL chassis, not GJ) quite a fair bit, and it's brilliant in that! Had the chance to test drive a new Mazda 3 today (top spec one...until the Sky-Activ X engine comes out early 2020), and it can do stop start traffic with the radar cruise! Like, do I even need to drive anymore!?! Ffs's it makes driving too easy

My outback has the i-sight stuff and the cruise control is simply amazing, used it on the way back from Christchurch and was so good

Gave car a really good clean as hadn't done so in a while. Came up really good.

Next up is tinting front windows, redo the carbon wrap around outside doors, fuel flap and headlights as well as interior.
Don't have any time off till next week but will look stealth I reckon being all black

And she’s in, seems the controls that came with the wheel are either a different, darker version or all my silver trim pieces have just faded a heap over the years, not sure whether I should swap my old ones in or not. 

 

Install took a grand total of about 30mins with half of that spent finding the correct sized torx bit for the airbag. 😒

Facelift have grey panels not the same silver stuff in the earlier ones :) 

 

Ahh so they're STI controls rather than Legacy ones, which stayed silver the whole way through. So at what point did the STI’s get the black controls then? I was also always under the impression the STI’s never got the separate mode and mute button and just had one large button instead.

WRX - over the past two weekends I half Mother's 3 stepped the car with a Rockwell Polish/Buffer I got from Supercheap. I say half because I didn't have space to touch the passenger side, but I did claybar then use a Fireball nano coat type thing

 

Here is the 3 stepped side:

Taken on my iPhone with a damaged camera lens, should have taken my DSLR with me.

Got it started

 

Found an oil leak out the bottom of the oil pump.

 

Mechanic to pull the oil pump out Monday, re seal, then crank and run for 45 mins ish.

 

Then dump oil, check for shards of glitter in the oil filter, new break in oil in and drive it

 

Let the break in begin.

 

Need to sort out a time with @gotasuby to get it tuned... Chch is a bloody long way from Auckland but probably the only tuner I'd trust with my build

Soo... my diesel tractor has a factory launch control. Much fun indeed. 

Now, curious to see what it does 0-100 with/without the LC  - what is the best free logging app? Android of course.

 

This is what it looks like, not my vid:

Dash Command is a good one, not free though.

 

Looks way to complicated for my basic needs 🙄 :D

Dropped off new (smaller base) air filter, should fit better. Oil leak found, one of the block plugs at the front, not oil pump. Win. Car being started and run up to temp, leak checked and first start oil filter check being done. Barring any other issues she'll be home tonight.

Oh mate you don't want to see it atm, she fiiiilthy. If I'm honest with everything that's been going on and the dramas and s*** it's not had a proper clean for about 12 months.

 

Got a few more bits and pieces to go before it'll be ready, but this is a big hurdle out of the way. 

 

You'll see it if you're at the clubsub meet on Wednesday ...
