  1. Hi Team Apologies for the thread necro but figured it'd be better to show having used the search function as opposed to starting a new thread. Been a little but have since rejoined the Subaru fold with a ... *draws breath*... Tribeca. Like the OP, I'm seeking recommendations for a good Subaru tech (not a stealership) in the HBC / Shore area please.
  2. After collecting a puncture, which I only realised after having driven 100m or so and ruining any hope of repair in the process, I called into a Beaurepaires at an undisclosed location. The staff were friendly and accommodating but for some reason, could not follow simple instructions: 1. Fit 2 x new tyres to the front wheels (matching tyres but already ~30k in so elected to buy two etc) 2. Move best remaining tyres to rear wheels 3. Conduct alignment Arrive to see them tightening up the wheel nuts. New tyres are on the rear wheels. Instruct manager to correct. S
  3. Doesn't make sense to me why it would perform better on E10 as opposed to PULP unless someone's specifically tuned it as such.
  4. It'll work but it's a false economy given that ethanol has a lower calorific value than petrol (i.e. requires more energy to do the same amount of work). It sounds as if your problem may not be fuel specific. Have you conducted any monitoring on your car - for example using SSM?
  5. I had Bridgestone Ecopia on my 3.0R when it came into the country. Previously I had always used Bridgestone RE001/002 on my VR-4. At first I was extremely dubious as to the Ecopia's touted fuel saving ability and their ability to keep me from flying off the road. I was pleasantly surprised - they are certainly more economical than my current set of boots (Goodyear somethingorother) and surprisingly grippy. The current tyres are really quick to protest at the slightest combination of turn-in and generous application of throttle. Next time I'm definitely going back to B
  6. Top drawer service again from H.A. Car went in today to replace the oil cooler and valve cover gaskets that were indicated as leaking on previous visit. Figured may as well replace the spark plugs at the same time. Was informed that upon inspection it was found that they still had plenty of life in them and that there was no need to change them. Great to see that honest mechanics still exist.
  7. Hi Admins Recently experience a year old message (PM) from someone being presented as a new notification on my Activity Feed (viz 3.0R not starting thread).
  8. Not quite sure why I was tagged on this thread but ja, I am a 3.0R owner - no sunroof. Never really been something that appeal to me, just another potential leak hahah!
  9. Thoroughly good experience. I've a 2006 Legacy 3.0R which I booked in via their website for transmission service and brake system flush. Contact was responded to on the same day and job was booked. Arrived this morning at opening time. Was attended to promptly by the knowledgeable lady at the front desk - indicated I was happy to wait for work to be conducted (no choice really as I work a fair distance away). This wasn't a problem, was offered power point for laptop and coffee. I was picked up by a friend and left the site for a while. The mechanic phoned me to inform
  10. Bit of a thread necro but I did manage to come across one on TardMe several months ago. My early elation at finally having found a replacement unit turned to dismay when I found that the connectors on the back did not correspond to those of my car. Basically the unit I'd bought did not have the multimedia functionality in order to drive the HDD and DVD drive in my car. So it was a few hours of painstakingly taking apart each unit and then swapping the circuitry (and accordingly the connectors) from the old unit to the donor unit. Of course the easier thing would be to swap the scre
  11. Car: Legacy 3.0R 2006 Tuned: Stock Fuel: Mobil / BP 98RON Tank: ~64L Fuel economy: OPEN 12.7km / litre (7.87litre / 100km), URBAN 7.4km / litre (13.5litre / 100km) Tyre Pressure: 34psi all round
  12. Used Bridgestone Rxxx series tyres when I owned my Mitsubishis before turning to the dark side (the light?) Bridgestone Ecopia were on my BLE 3.0 when I bought it. Good tyre, surprisingly grippy and far more fuel efficient than the Goodyear "fuel saving" equivalent I replaced them with. Will definitely replace with Bridgestone again when the time comes.
  13. The only time I've experienced this problem was when I had the exhaust off to flush / replace the ATF. Rear O2 sensor wasn't properly connected. YMMV.
  14. Thanks, doesn't look like there are any at PaP or Strong. I'll continue to bide my time.
