Sure do! The silver pre face lift was my 2003, just bought this 2008 last weekend! Don't think you would have seen them both there though, unless I can somehow drive two cars at once? :confused:

Nice outback! Looks lowered ;)

Cheers! It may or may not have had the soft/bouncy/horrible suspension swapped for my bilsteins with STI pinks the day after purchase!

ps. What/how on earth did you get those flaming basketballs of bump stops out?

I used a vice grip on the actual rubber - they spin out - maybe try spraying them with crc or something to help

How close are your bumpstops from the upper control arms?

Currently sitting on the control arms, hence why I need to get them out! I've tried vice grips and pipe wrenches so I'll give them another go tonight.

Are you currently running custom legacy arms on your 3 litre?

They're off an 04 forester STI! They don't quite fill out the flares on the outback (sat really flush on my legacy)

I'm still running the factory outback arms - I got some legacy bumpstops and trimmed the **** out of them to give me an effective bumpstop with a decent amount of travel. Putting legacy upper control arms in will give even more room. I'll see if i have a pic of the whoriness

Sounds good to me!

I think that is the route I'll have to go down, just need to get the damn things out first!

Had a good look through my pics and didn't find anything - must have been pretty whory if I didn't take pics of them haha - I'm contemplating just chucking some adjustable legacy upper control arms in there (mo camber) http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/nissan/suspension/auction-1090978959.htm (holy **** these are cheap currently)

I'll move all these posts into another thread so this tag thread isn't so messy

Don't you have a sunroof? :confused: It is an nz new 2.5l 5 speed 'Lux', (sunroof, leather seats etc...) plus I'm the second owner!

Fark those are cheap right now. No wonder no ones bid on mine. They were north of $250 from scarles when I first put mine up. Could do mine for $150 for CS members if any of you are interested. They're brand new too.

Non-Mcintosh for me also, the previous owners (or wingers?) installed a parrot Bluetooth hands free though

I think they're great! Not sure if yours does but mine allows ipod connectivity, line in and usb playback.

Great choice of radio station by the way :cool:

I wouldn't have a clue if it can or not - Might have to actually read the user manual haha

Just a ****ty small one which I found at work.

Also try use just your bare hands - this worked when I changed them after modifying them (I failed with the vice grips and in a final attempt used my hands)

I like your style :P No ****ing around haha

Bought the car in Hamilton, drove her back to Auckland and it handled like crap (in my opinion), I had to remedy that asap!

Have you had your D2s certified? If so, how simple was the process? Did they snag you on anything else? Wondering whether I should go down the adjustable route...

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
