  1. Hey guys, Needing to change our cambelt in the next few months on our 2008 Outback 2.5. Wondering if anyone has a contact in CHCH to do this? The local mechanic wanted $1700 for aftermarket one - I politely turned them down. Cheers!
  2. Just spoke to the guy at Winger Subaru and he said it is very very minor and wouldn't stop him buying it at all. Any idea on the approximate cost for fixing those other things?
  3. Guys this is what the pre-purchase inspection had to say: - Play in both rear shock absorbers - Knock in LH boot hinge - Rocker cover gaskets leaking oil - Clutch pedal high suggesting wear - Evidence of accident damage including repaired or replaced lower radiator mounts, slight crease in LH chassis rail So from this, what do you now think of the price? Are these easily fixable or should i stay away?
  4. Cheers for the input guys. So it seems a good deal. Would you be confident to say i'd make that money back if I was to sell it again in 6 months time do you think?
  5. Thanks for the reply ADIKT. Anyone else care to share their opinion? Thanks.
  6. Hi all, Looking at a 2003 Version 8 STi It is fully stock in the STi blue with factory gold wheels. 120,000kms, two owners, looks very tidy indeed. I have been offered it for $15,000. Providing all is good when I get a pre-purchase inspection, is this good shopping? Thanks Scott
  7. Hi all, I am looking at purchasing a 2004 Legacy GT Wagon - it\'s Manual, Black, 18" rims, 149,000kms, and cambelt replaced at 110,000kms. I\'m more of a WRX man in the past, so you Legacy boys, what would be a reasonable buy for this (I know, not a lot of info but your best estimate)? What do I need to look out for? Any issues that occur with this amount of kms? Fuel consumption? Any info greatly appreciated! Thanks

  11. Gidday guys, My mates power steering pump has shat itself on his 1999 STi; anyone got one for sale? In ChCh and will pay ASAP! Cheers
  12. Hi all, Could anybody free up a spare half hour this week some time to help fit spotlight covers on my 1999 V5 STi. The previous owner had spotlights instead of the covers ,and I prefer the covers so bought a pair and also the mounting brackets. I believe I have to take out the spolights in order to fit the covers, so is anybody keen for a bit of cash or beers in return for helping me take out the current spotties and fitting the covers? Feel free to txt me. 027 seven one 0 seven 0 six two Cheers!
