  1. Just drop it on its guts ๐Ÿ˜…
  2. Nah dude, no longer have the old girl...
  3. Nice work behind the lens mate @ACE3.0R
  4. NZ new 2008 BP9 Like these? Not factory so been switched at some point in its life...
  5. Not uncommon on the JDM models. B4 are sedans only... Colour: Grey
  6. Any BP towbar will work, same chassis from 03-09. This is the case with the vehicles tail lights, unsure whether the same applies to trailer LED tails... I had a factory fitted towbar on my old wagon, didn't appear to have any flash wiring associated. Might be best to push on and deal with the issue should it arise instead of resolving an issue which may or may not exist.
  7. As previously mentioned, the wheel offset is reasonably low and is what's causing the rub on the inside of your outer rear quarters. It's the best place to start, failing that there are some other options but would be good to avoid if possible as it sounds like you just want to remedy the issue and are not intentionally modifying.

    Speaking from my experience with 4x4s here; Anything regardless of the overall lift size by way of spacer requires a certification... Anything with increased ground clearance up to 50mm by way of spring lift (ie. lift springs on factory or replacement struts) does not require a certification. If you're going to do it, go for a spring lift - far far safer...
  9. FYI, youโ€™ll burn through RE003s in a year or less if you donโ€™t correct the camber, speaking from experience here ๐Ÿ˜…
  10. Ughhh I can't remember exactly ๐Ÿ˜… you'll be pleased to know that the Legacy struts are 40mm shorter than the OB, good drop there without even considering the springs!
  11. @ride Subtech are excellent, have used them for all my cars as I know the owner personally.
  12. @iludez Legacy & Outback suspension is interchangeable yes. You will need to either a) cut the OB bumpstops or b) source some Legacy ones from a wrecker (I've actually seen them brand new on TM too) as even a moderate drop will cause clearance issues there... Depending on how long you want your tyres to last, I'd recommend getting some adjustable rear camber arms (upper control arms) to correct the camber as even a set of Legacy struts will set you at approx. negative 1.5 degrees. Other than that you'll be away laughing. I still miss mine, handled so bloody well with all the suspension upgrades I'd done. Goodluck!
  13. My mechanic (Subtech Performance Services) uses Zic, never questioned his judgement nor had any issues
  14. Sorry dude, that's as far as my knowledge level goes - never had one of these factory auxiliaries, always had a Parrot bluetooth system...
  15. Yes, pull off trim in front of gear stick, followed by side panels. This will reveal 3? screws either side of the unit which when out will allow the whole unit to be removed. As per the video @Sphinx posted... I wouldn't bother replacing, his Kenwood unit has the auxiliary button and therefore should have the auxiliary input in the back. Confirm the input is there and then buy the auxiliary input adapter that I posted from Trade Me, just like that Bob's your Uncle. Confirm the auxiliary input is there while you have the unit out and before buying the adapter...
  16. Welcome, What model are we talking here? Legacy BP? You can buy an adapter which plugs into the back of the unit which enables the auxiliary ability. Similar to, if not exactly the one in the link below... https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/subaru/accessories/listing-1745448051.htm?rsqid=623fb94debb042118776059ee3651666 Good luck!
  17. Perhaps instead of a 20/21mm solid bar, whatever the brand/company is decided a massive diameter (27mm) hollow bar would be the go...? Just a thought... @iludez can you post a photo please? I'd like to see how out of proportion it looks mounted to the car.
  18. To high to high Lil self thread plug here have my D2s for sale, both @ADIKT and I have run them in our Outbacks. I think they're good quality, similar to that of BC Racing I'd imagine... @blackseb you could buy all my suspension components if you wanted (minus the bracing and camber arms)! If you want that low life you'll need camber arms and smaller bumpstops. Read back through this read and @A_J_T's build thread, everything you need to know is in these two threads. Seeing someone else just starting out is making me feel like a grandad of this lowered Outback stuff
  19. After two years, I want my money out
  20. 225/40 would be it I reckon, although good for comfort my 225/45s were to tall on my 18x8.5s
  21. Hey @Inked, (This comment is meant in the nicest way possible, the current punctuation is driving me up the wall #grammernazi ). There isn't any need to have the apostrophes in 'Boxers' or 'Beverages' within the title of this thread...
  22. I've got a tonne of parts yet to go into the BF actually, needs a proper service too... Not looking to replace the Outback at this stage but if something were to surface which I couldn't refuse well then we'll see won't we. Bit of a sucker for the E61 Touring though @sobanoodle Haha yeah, still work in the vicinity! Can't say I've seen you cause I'm not sure what I'm looking for these days! Hmmm something over 5 metres...
