  1. So I'm looking at getting the timing belt and associated parts changed so I'm wanting to confirm what parts are required so that I can source them. My vehicle is a 2009 BR9, chassis BR9-003770, 2.5L, EJ253 Can anybody who has been through this process advise me what parts list I would need. I haven't been through this parts process for quite some time, so can anybody advise if there is an online database of sorts so that I can look up the parts numbers for all the bits I need? Thanks heaps!
  2. Changed out my Legacy rear boot gas struts. They work just like new again
  3. I can't organise anything as I can't guarantee that I'll be able to attend, as I have no idea what time I'll be getting back to Wellington, from spending the weekend in Rotorua
  4. My first visit back on the forums for ages haha. But now I've seen this... if there's interest for a meet on the late afternoon / evening of Sunday 27th then I'm keen. I may well be travelling back from Rotorua that day so later in the day will be better. I'll also bring down whatever Wagon Mafia stickers I have as it seems that FB group has been garnering more interest lately. I might have to get more stickers for the models that I've got none left.
  5. Installed my Valenti Tail lights & Hi-Stop light.. quite an improvement in the looks department.. especially on a black car! Just need to do something about that Chrome strip now. Might just plastidip it like I did the badges. Before After
  6. Just buy lots of chicken.. stay all day
  7. Have purchased some aftermarket lights but the buyer won't ship, so I need someone to at least go and arrange a pickup with the seller... and then we can arrange shipment to me somehow. The seller lives in Ferry Rd, Christchurch.. somewhere. Who can help me out with this.. chur
  8. A few years ago I got one from Rockautos.com in the US, was around the $100(ish) mark. They have different USDM model numbers, but the part numbers matched up.You just need to to go through their database of cars to see if you can find the correct one. At the time, mine was for a V7 STi.. don't know what you need. Also, if I remember correctly, there is a difference between front and rear (pre- or post- turbo). The one I got was front (pre-turbo, in the exhaust manifold). From the image above, it was the lower one. The big white connector on the end fit through the 'O' end of a standard 17mm (I think) ring spanner, so it was easy enough to install myself, once you get all the heat-shielding off (which was a pain).
  9. So I realise this may be a bit late notice, but I'm driving up to Rotorua on Friday morning, and coming back Monday afternoon / evening. If anybody needs anything shipped between those destinations, then let me know and we can likely hook something up. Chur
  10. Has a carbon bonnet and yes it's been kept in excellent condition. Is an old school CSér, has been around the scene for probably about 15 years, if not longer
  11. Yep but wanted to tag him in the post hah
  12. When you swap the suspension over.. you put this over the top of the top-mount, then install it into the car. So basically, it is sandwiched between the top-mount and the car's chassis. They are 10mm thick so it should still give more than enough thread to bolt your nuts onto. Send me a PM and we'll sort out the $ and postage
  13. That would be a member by the screen name Mitsuriboshi, or something like that haha.. but it doesn't look like he has his account on here any more? Chuck it in the Wellington Facebook page
  14. As luck would have it, I have a set that I got for my Foz's but never used Brand new, still in packet. $65 inc shipping
  15. When you install the struts into the rear, they will sit 10-15mm lower than the fronts. So you need to get a spacer to get them looking level. But if you like the look, then there's nothing functionally wrong with it.
