  1. I had UltraRacing swaybar in mine, was cheaper than Whiteline back then. Didn't get as much buzz out of an STI's.
  2. Seeing how cheap they're these days, both 4th and 5th gen - you get a lot of a car for the money. 5th gen are more squarish inside and you get way more room/headroom especially for the rear passengers. Aim for a S Pack (Spec B for NZ new ones). Jap spec sheets are all over the place - leather is rare, so are sunroofs. Cruise/steering wheel controls, comfort access, Mcintosh sounds ok but unless it is a nz new one everything will be in japanese. NZ navigation is outdated and useless. NZ new Spec B have majority of that ticked off but lack alloy control arms and folding mirrors. Also 2.5 vs 2.0. I had 2.5GT, central Auckland + motorway would consume around 12-13l per 100km, round about the same or even slightly better than the 3.0 I had prior to that.
  3. That's average. Mine do it within seconds. BMW though.
  4. Unless you have a CD/DVD with map loader in the unit you'll end up with a sweet as message in Japanese politely asking you to insert one...
  5. Unless properly sealed and regularly maintained they'll go back to crap eventually 😒
  6. Yep couldn't fault them either, my stock set is wrapped in them. Really good value for money, in my specs at least.
  7. I find 4s to be rather loud at lower speeds, compared with Dunlops.
  8. S Package is what used to be called SpecB i.e bodykit, Bilstein, blacked out headlights. In actual fact, NZ new 5th gen were still marketed and registered as Spec B. Much better specs than an average JDM S Pack with full leather, McIntosh with steering controls, cruise control, sunroof, comfort access etc. BUT no alloy control arms or electric folding mirrors.
  9. They appear to be the same ones as I had on mine (Crystal Eye), probably come from the same factory. Build quality is very decent and certainly look different.
  10. Don't forget to add facelift/pre-facelift to the mix.
  11. I still have a brand new UltraRacing rear underbody brace I am rather keen to part with if you fancy one @Powder Day...
  12. Are you moving onto something else?
  13. How heave are they? Get the seller to package them up and book a courier to collect through TradeMe. I just shipped a set of stock 18s for slightly over $70 (split into two consignments).
