  9. Air Oil Separator

    I have been contemplating either a catch can or Air Oil Separator for a few weeks and decided that the AOS is probably the better choice. Anyone got an AOS on their Impreza?

    Have you been fraternising with the enemy? Was Kian (apology for bad spelling) doing all the chatting up? I watched the news and there was no wild fires.
  18. Funny Place Names

    As I stumbled across 'Knob Lane' last week it reminded me of all the funny place names I have seen over the years. My inner child has now decided to do a tour and collect them all in an album. So if anyone has suggestions I am starting to build the list.
  19. The world's most bizarre traffic laws

    I always forget those when I am over there, I have had a few close shaves, once even forgetting to stay on the the right side of the road The great thing about the scoob, is just put your foot down and get out of there before others can even make their minds up
  20. 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.
