  1. I only go to the deaership here because they serviced the car before I got it and have good records of everything so far. Also havn't found a new mechanic to go to as of yet but I understand dealers are expensive usually. Good to know that that cost doesn't sound too bad. In terms of the Shocks, i know there is a difference between struts and shocks but was hoping you or someone else could help me with understanding these. WHat exactly do Bugeyes have? They have Struts right? Not separate Shocks Is this a repair you can do yourself if you have th
  2. Hey guys Just failed wof on the following: Front suspesnsion Top hats Split Vehicle has no rear bump stops Rear shocks need replacing Steering rack bushes need replacing. What is a reasonable cost including parts and labour to do this? I was quoted between $1,200 - $1,500 for this work at a subaru dealership.
  3. Thanks dude that is good to know appreciate it!!
  4. 198,000km Ok so this doesn't necessarily mean the car has been thrashed to buggery or that the rest of the gearbox is bad?
  5. Hey guys Looking at buying nice Bugeye STI exactly what I am after. However been in contact with the seller and he says it is getting a worn synchro repaired. Is that a red flag? I know that the STI gearboxes are stupid strong and can easily handle 600hp so to hear them having issues makes me think it has had the living daylights thrashed out of it and that the entire gearbox might go boom. I'd hate to buy an STI only for it to have an expensive gearbox replacement. So should I avoid this vehicle? Any checks I could get done professio
  6. Ah ok so it is better to ride the clutch briefly in these situations? Ok cool so I don't need to worry about the lugging in this situation as it was for such a short time and in such a low gear aye?
  7. Hey guys I have just been practicing not riding the clutch as much as possible and I have got a pretty good hang of the bite point now so i don't ride it too much these days in many situations. I was reversing out of a gravel driveway that was on an incline of about 30 degrees so quite steep but was not very long. I didn't want to ride the clutch so I had clutch fully engaged and was just letting the momentum carry the car up. I didn't want to accelerate much either as it was not very far up the hill and onto a main road, so I ended up letting the torque at 500 - 900rpm
  8. Hey all Was just wondering if I needed a tune for the following: I recently had a dyno tune done on my WRX on stock Downpipe. Got some nice gains and came out around 302bhp. Been wanting to buy a Blitz Exhaust but they are over $1,000 and in looking a few of my friends recommended the following exhaust https://ppdperformance.nz/products/subaru-wrx-sti-turbo-back-exhaust-with-catalytic-converter Good price for a very nice sounding exhaust and even comes with Downpipe. However, I don't want to put the Downpipe on if it would cause probl
  9. Oh that is cool! I like that. yeah I was thinking this haha!
  10. Hey guys was hoping to get some feedback on where others have placed their gauges? I currently have 2x Prosport JDM gauges mounted in the A Pillar. I have a new Defi Boost gauge getting installed next week. Currently, the Pillar Pod is only held in by double sided tape as I am waiting to get this final gauge put in before I drill through the pillar and connect it and feed it all properly as once I do that, it is basically locked in. I always wanted my gauges on the A Pillar as I thought it looked amazing and I love the look. The only issue is driving at night. If there
  11. Hello all! Just wondering what could potentially cause this. My check engine light has flashed (by flashed I mean appeared and disappeared a split second later) a few times in the 2 years I have had car but never had any issues and had them checked/diagnostic and never shows up anything. Today however I turned car on and was letting it idle for 1 min as I always do before taking off and noticed Check Engine Light and it was staying on. I turned car off and back on just to double check and it was gone and when driving it did not come back on. If it is not coming up again n
  12. Nah I am not worried I am relaxing more now and am actually just enjoying the car :). Was just curious what it could be and if it is something I should just leave chur
  13. So today I noticed a whining noise in 5th gear. It sounded like a high pitched noise but it ONLY occurs at 94 - 96km/h in 5th gear with light throttle. If I am off throttle or building any boost I don't hear it and I don't hear it in any other gear at all, and I don't hear it in 5th if I am below 95km/h or above 100km/h which is really weird. What could possible be making this noise? Diff? Bearings? Is this something worth getting checked or should I just leave it for now as it only seems to happen at 95km/h in 5th. I should note that trans shifts with 0 issues at all a
  14. Sweet I will definitely look into it :). Yeah I definitely have been thinking about over capitalisation of the WRX. So far I have bought it for 8k and spent about 3.5k on it. SO far it is just a tune, STI SPoiler, STI Scoop and 3 gauges. If I did buy a blitz (would cost me $1,000), i would just take it off once I got an STI anyway so it is not like I'd buy it and leave it on the WRX if I sold the WRX or bought an STI and kept the WRX, I'd take the blitz off. I am not planning on taking the WRX any further, I am super happy where it is I was just looking into
