  1. Past hour
  2. Welcome back to the mad house. Tony
  3. Last week
  4. Ooooh ok bud thanks for that mite be worth getting hold of a spoiler then ill have a hunt round or i could just change the REX for a sti hatch what you reckon mr floz
  5. The light fitted in the WRX low spoiler I think uses the same LED unit as the STi one. I swapped over and they certainly look the same, except for the housing being painted on one of the them.
  6. Hi and welcome. Glad to hear you got the Hatch back on the road. It's a good addiction to have.
  7. Hi everyone. I've just put my hatchback sti back on the road and want to do a few more jobs to it. 2008 grey type UK. 118k miles on the original engine! FMIC TD05 20g I believe, miltec exhaust. I've owned the car twice. Recently bought it back from a friend. I must be addicted.
  8. That is not what you want to come back from holiday and find. If it was heat I assume it have affected more than one area. I wonder if it is overspray from them not covering the spoiler properly? I am sure they will sort it if they are a reputable body shop. Fingers crossed.
  9. Brilliant !!
  10. Hey all I recently got my wings replaced and quarter panels welded and the paintwork done due to rust which I was completely happy with on collection of the car from a reputable bodyshop. Ive been on holiday for a week and on return washed the vehicle as I normally would ... Ive noticed the spoiler is now uneven looking on the top and underneath and am wondering if it could be the heat from the oven or something else. The spoiler had a good shiny paint surface before the other work was done. I intend to contact the bodyshop but just wondered if anyone had experienced anything like this before. Thanks
  11. Earlier
  12. No prob, almost sorted. Tried my local KYB distributor listed from Dons link, ( I thought they just supplied parts to the local trade shops from their industrial estate place, but they serve " the public" as well via phone/ at their counter). A Vehicle specific set now ordered, will be here tomorrow direct from KYB, and a good price. Now for a cheap set of Spring compressors! Another little project to keep me busy.
  13. I found the thread, it was Ultra SR's they were talking about.
  14. Found this while surfing and had to share 1. Driving with a blindfold on in Alabama is not allowed It seems basic common sense you shouldn’t obscure your own sight while driving a vehicle. But apparently somewhere along the line this notion became a bit blurry for someone in Alabama, and the state found it necessary to outlaw blindfolded driving. 2.You can be fined for driving topless in Thailand According to Thai law, it is never okay to take your top off while on their roads. Despite the country’s often blistering heat, anyone caught operating a car, bike or tuk-tuk while topless will be slapped with a fine. 3. You must check for children hiding under your car before setting off in Denmark The Danes have a rather unusual law designed to protect anyone that may be working underneath a vehicle. To avoid being fined, drivers in Denmark must check to make sure there is no one under their car before starting the engine. This includes mechanics, or small children playing hide ‘n’ seek. 4. Dirty cars attract fines in Russia If you are the kind of car owner that cares little for the car wash, thank your lucky stars you don’t live in Russia. Moscow police have the power to dish out fines to any motorist with a car that is deemed to be too dirty. And it is entirely up to the officer to decide what counts as not clean enough. It’s not quite as severe but Brits can land a £1,000 fine if your number plate is too dirty. 5. You can’t drive on Monday in Manilla if your registration ends in 1 or 2 In a bid to restrict the heavy traffic build up in the Philippines capital, authorities have imposed restrictions on which cars are allowed in certain areas of the city. Based on the last digit of a cars number plate, certain vehicles are prohibited from the city on a particular day of the week. For example, any car with a number plate ending in 1 or 2 is banned from driving in Metro Manila on Mondays. 6. It is illegal to drive a black car in Denver, Colorado on Sundays America is notorious for bizarre, outdated laws – and Denver is near the top of the list with this odd sanction. State traffic law dictates it is unlawful to drive a black car on a Sunday in Colorado’s capital. Clearly a very old fashioned restriction, while it is still a legal requirement, it is a near certainty that this is no longer enforced. 7. Hefty penalty for running out of petrol on a German Autobahn Despite their lack of speed limits, Germany’s world-famous Autobahns still come with strict rules. Anyone that runs out of fuel on one of these high-speed roads will face a fine, and could even receive a driving ban in the more serious cases. 8. San Francisco bans the use of used underwear to buff or dry a vehicle One of the more liberal cities in America, San Francisco is rather picky when it comes to the car wash business. For commercial businesses, you can be cited if you are seen buffing or drying a car and you chose to re-purpose a pair of used underwear as a rag. But for private car owners keen to give their car a scrub, they are free to use as many pairs of stained tighty-whities as they like. 9. Every car in Luxembourg must have windscreen wipers, even if it doesn’t have a windscreen Luxembourg makes it a legal requirement for every car to have windscreen wipers, even if the car in question doesn’t have a windscreen – much more common among vintage cars. It is perfectly legal to drive without a glass shield for the driver, but miss the wipers and you’ll be awarded with a fine. 10. Headlights must be used 24/7 in Scandinavia Drivers must have their headlights on at all times when their car is running in Scandinavia, even when the sun is out. While handy for increasing safety during their notoriously foggy weather and short days, the law is largely designed for periods in winter where there is no daylight for weeks on end.
  15. Cheers Floz and Don,. According to the link, theres a distributor just A couple of miles away, will call tomorrow to see if they supply direct rather than just to trade, and then see about availability.
  16. Thanks! Ive only taken one pic yet and its not the best ill get post some later when i get home
  17. Hi and welcome, 4 days? wow still at the beginning of the journey. Any pics?
  18. Hi all, New to the forum and the scooby community as a whole. Ive had my wrx sti for 4 days and am absolutely in love with it already. I've come from a 2.0 GT scirocco (which was a terrible car). Looking forward to hopefully joining some meets in the near future Cheers
  20. I read somewhere that they KYBs are in short supply, someone was struggling to find some 'genuine' ones and resorted to searching Europe . I will check my history and see if I can find it.
  21. Hi,. Anyone recommend a supplier for KYB shocks? The places mentioned in old posts such as Camskill don't seem to supply any longer. After fitting some Pedders to the forester it's clear the Impreza needs new rear shocks so planning to go with KYB excel g ( standard?), and re- use the springs and top mounts, also assuming my GX 2005 will use the equivalent WRX rear shocks ( to be confirmed) Looking for a recommendation rather than just an e bay or similar listing please. Thanks. P.S. The opposed forces site confirms the original GX and WRX shocks have different part numbers.
