  1. I see the one on trade-me has the tyre carrier and the wings on the back as well, must be a tight fit! So happy to have both the brush bar and the tyre carrier, just need to find the front spats and the side-skirts and it's done!
  2. Finally test fitted the rear tyre carrier, pretty happy with it, and it definitely gives it the distinctive Gravel Express look. Just need to work out how the it mounts permanently, setting the height etc, and also build a catch for it, as it's the only main part I don't have. And of course attempt to remove the advertising on it.
  3. Nice result! Apet by the looks of it? Nik's always been a good yarn there, really need to get my WRX finished and over to him... Speaking of, I'm one step closer now, finally got a new up pipe for the WRX, the old one had a cut in it from removing the heat shield, found a stainless steel one brand new on trademe for $80. So that should get me a step closer to running.
  4. Wow, I'm amazed it's still available, this is great 🤣
  5. Different I know, but just some random info. My partner's Mazda 3 has this feature, and it's very hit and miss when it works, I think there's a ton of conditions around when it'll turn the engine off etc, sometimes under harder braking it'll turn off, sometimes not on hills etc. But we always just disable it as soon as we get in the car. It's the most frustrating thing ever. Pull up to a stop sign, find a gap in traffic and go... wait no, engine has to start now! And now it's too late to pull into traffic and the gap has gone....
  6. It wouldn't get as much e-fame if it was stock looking though. It's all about the publicity.
  7. I have previously, I ran it just to the left of the throttle body outlet if I recall correctly. Not sure if I have any photos though sorry!
  8. Mate has a Outlander PHEV with similar features. It helped him avoid a crash on an off ramp when there was sunstrike, and a car directly in front of him slowed down very very quickly. It's definitely a feature where if I had the choice, I'd definitely go for it.
  9. Lost the windshield washer cover on the STI a wee while ago, found a part number online for a replacement, but wasn't sure whether it'd come unpainted, or painted. Received it today, and thankfully it's painted, and even the correct colour! The car goes in for paint in a few weeks, a brand new front bumper going on, a few scratches/dents repaired, and some paint fade being sorted.
  10. For noise, here's a few sound clips from our 2011 STI, it's a 2L, but the noise volume should be about the same for a 2.5L. We started with just an R400, cat-back. Then later on went with a cat-less down pipe, we never did get a CEL from that. We had it tuned, as we also did an after-market intake system. Tuned at SAS as recommended by PBMS and CroweSport, think it was around $700 for the tune. Just the R400 exhaust: R400 + cat-less downpipe:
  11. If you can, I'd try go back to the correct turbos, as it's most likely still on the original tune, so best to run the original turbos etc. And yup, you can swap to the 20G CDB no problems at all.
  12. Pretty bloody sad TBH! Such an iconic Subaru, and being culled after 32 years Although I've heard the outback is likely to stay, so at least that's some of it continuing on, kind of...
  13. Not the best, but about all I can find from the last year:
