  1. I don't keep up to date much on new cars anymore and was pretty confused coming into this thread like no s*** its important haha Drove a brand new camry in the states in 2017 which had the adaptive cruise control and lane assist and collision avoidance which sounds a lot like this subaru equivalent. Never got to test the collision avoidance thankfully but on the large highways the adaptive cruise control was pretty awesome. I found the lane steering assist a really odd sensation. It felt like when you have a big gust of wind push you to the side in a light car. I can see it being a very good way to avoid rear ending someone if you lose concentration in traffic or fall asleep on a long drive etc.
  2. I actually just disabled it for now. Google days it takes 6 weeks for a team to manually review the submission? Whole thing seemed a bit too serious for what we are doing lol. If they approve it one day I'll reactivate, if not nothing lost?

  6. Don't give up on the jdm braapapap woosh dreams
  7. If you want a reference my 96 Suzuki Alto, 660cc turbo, gets average 6.2L/100km and I am not light on the throttle and drive daily. Would probably get better if you drove it like a city car should be.. Tires are 155/65/13. Look after it well of course but most of my journey to work would be on the motorway. 5 speed box though so it's not too bad in terms of revving it's nuts off. Lots of fun, highly recommended.

  11. I think we would all concur with this statement. If you want more performance start saving and buy another car one day. You won't really get any value for money out of this one. Enjoy the Subaru life with a decent fuel bill while you can!
  12. Yep the wire or wires should be pretty clearly labelled.
  13. I have always done installs myself but I can at least say the people at driving sound in Mt Eden have been friendly and said the right things when I have bought some stuff there. Chat to them and see if they seem onto it. Wouldn't go to sound around but that's my personal experience. Sound Tech NZ in new Lynn would be the budget option, super sketch, great price. I would take my own product there to get installed not use theirs. Rapid radio have a good reputation I think but are probably expensive as their work is marketed at high end. Never tried hot wire but they could be good option price depending? Or do it yourself! It's pretty easy once you get into just take your time, disconnect the battery first, and don't break any plastic 😁
