  1. Thinking about that, wasn't there someone on here recently with some similar issues which turned out to be the alternator playing up?
  2. There's no way going on the internet has ’bricked’ an OTG cable. Do you have auto updates on for apps or anything like that? Something updating when you went on the net is the only thing I can imagine that may cause a compatibility issue. Have you force rebooted the Nexus from powerevent manager? My phone was always used as a hotspot with bluetooth split so the phone could be connected for calls and the Nexus for music. With the Nexus connected to the net i’d just upload logs straight from BTSSM to Google drive for later viewing.
  3. With that track record it sounds like it's more of a you problem than a Brembo problem 😂
  4. Wrong fluid maybe. I know nothing about these auto’s but surely it would have to be either the torque converter slipping (unlikely since changing the fluid made things worse) or a failing clutch pack/blocked filter preventing it from applying the correct pressure. Do you get any warning lights on the dash? Worth getting the engine and trans computers checked to see if they have any fault codes present.
  5. Reckon by the time a euro has hit 200+ all the stupid/typical electrical and mechanical issues have already happened and been dealt with by one of the previous owners 😅
  6. PF Auto in Tauranga are the Subaru experts in the bay area. I always use them or DTech if I need something done I can't do myself. Not sure on who the best place in Rotorua would be but imagine there will be someone that fits this category well enough.
  7. Ahh was wondering if you selling narsti meant you might be finally grabbing this.
  8. Well if the barrel is hot you've got a short in that area somewhere that should be addressed before going any further. Rip all the covers off and see if you can see any arc/burn marks anywhere on plugs, contacts, or worn wiring
  9. The rears are always super obvious as they have a big diameter drum section that pokes out the front where as the fronts have a much smaller dome that isn't much larger than the studs Anything less than 330mm diameter won't be for brembo’s though so no idea what rotors you've ended up with.
  10. Does the A-Line use 5x100 or 5x114 wheel bolt spacing? I've got a set of old 5x100 ones in TGA that I could possibly get to Rotorua reasonably quickly as we're doing heaps of work over there right now.
  11. I'll try remember to trawl their site tonight and see if I want anything
  12. Lame. Think i’ve already got all the RCM bits i’ll be needing
  13. Have you had all the boot lining off to see what is working and what isn't? Could the cable at the handle end have popped off? Usually it's the wiring as it travels between the body and the boot gets severed eventually with these models which is probably your issue NTYCME. Pull the rubber boots up and you might find a few damaged wires.
  14. Nice find. I just blindly moved every relay with the same model over one slot last weekend while trying to solve my issues haha
