  1. would this be the similar bit of kit i had on my forester? wasn't quite done at new though, from what i can work out it was at first service. got a nice certificate with it tho, but no badges can imagine your motor is a rare as hens teeth matey, never come across one!
  2. Thats a brilliant bit of info, I will have a look at the website, think no just looked at prodrive in past, but anyway yes exactly same wheels as mine and 215/50/17. The exhaust was done seperate by the looks as its a full unique lifelong system, sports cat and all the way through with no joints to rear box. Has yellow 440 injectors, And a 2c ecu used for the management tweak. Gearbox has close ratio and quick shift, felt more like my old WRX Box than a uk. Desperate to get her on road, needs driving.
  3. I totally forgot to reply sorry Lockheed!, my original plan was to get ready for such events, I'm just not getting the time to finish the fozzy and get it MOTd, nearly there tho! I will defo catch up with some of you guys. Last meeting I went to was 2007! Cheers Andy!, I'm toying with replacing wings, but then ive defo got to get a full respray, rear arches have slight bubbles, and its been hit on near side rear quarter, bumper mainly and just rippled the body above bumper, Not terrible. Its been well used, I'm replacing everything I know that will show up on MOT, brakes are sorted now as they were shocking, nsf driveshaft was shot, tidying Her up inside now, needs good shampoo and general hoover, just fitted standard head unit. I'm missing the fuse cubby hole cover by right knee, other than that pretty sorted. Got to book her in for new windscreen and book mot and cross me fingers๐Ÿ˜ I bet your STi flies!!, proper wolf in sheep's clothing those fozzys, my Speedo is out ... 25 on clock is 21 on GPS, something else to sort
  4. Yeh cheers mate, it deserves to be looked after now, it would of hurt to see her in wrong hands and end up as scrap, Once shes mechanicaly sound ive got to sort the paint, little rust and a few dings.. But 20 years old too!... I'm a valeter/detailer by trade so cant wait to get stuck in ๐Ÿ˜€ Be good to get her out and see some shows, ๐Ÿ‘
  5. There the buggers ๐Ÿ˜‚ I live quite rural so defo get tested!, it used to be my daily driver, was nice to drive. But bouncy now tho, got clutch slave issues at mo so going nowhere
  6. Cheers matey!, shes a tired ol girl now!. 174000 on the clock, her first 10 years of life it was no expense spared by the looks, I knew the history from when I first bought it 2011. I'm going totally up the upgrades, repairs and maintenance, absolute thousands spent. This is why I had to have her back, although got issues at mo but will get her roadworthy and use it as an occasional drive. The last owner swapped my old suspension set up for the coilovers... All I know is they eere purchased from MAX SPEEDING RODS?! Not sure if I like that rock hard ride tho!, been fully poly bushed too.
  7. I fitted impreza suspension to it, some purple kyb adjustables with tein springs, and some 2005 sti rears.... Has since been fitted with coilovers and fully poly bushed,
  8. Cheers guys, certainly didn't want to lose a second chance with this fozzy, although high miles and needing some work but they are such a versatile vehicle. Its for keeps now, ive also got a Jag and my little Pug van for work so getting tight!, I know i did the right thing... Makes me smile when look out the window๐Ÿ˜€ Will try and post a pic up, from when I had it in 2012... Looks a bit sad at the mo lol
  9. Hi all, after originally joining in 2005 with my UK wagon which I had for 3 years, sold to a squaddie came from Germany, had a few other cars before buying a silver wrx, sold that to a guy from swindon.. A year later in 2011, I bought a 1999 prodrive forester, and like a madman I sold that in summer 2012๐Ÿ˜ช I regretted ever selling the fozzy, tried to contact the guy to offer to buy it back.... Had no contact with him.... I watched it online regarding MOT's ect, checking with total car check for any info I could get. Done this for 7 years!!, untill mid July when it can up 15 mins away on EBay out of the blue. Anyway ... Long story short... Arranged a viewing, test drive, still had the SIDC stickers in rear windows!, same guy owned it, px to a trader, offered 1200 to his 1500, eventually accepted, gave ยฃ500 deposit...thought I wasnt ever getting it back!!!... Looking a little worse for wear, it needs some loving. Couldnt bear the thought of it getting in wrong hands, its had thousands spent on it, very unique, and sentimental to myself ๐Ÿ˜€. Welcome home green fozzy!,
  10. Where in essex Andy?, I joined in 2005 originally... Ive just crept back ๐Ÿ˜‰
  11. Had a clear out and found a very sorry looking envelope ! It's was jammed with back issues of true grip, all in very good nick, apart from one which the front cover is missing and can't date it, I have: Vol 7 issue 4 Vol 8 issues 1-4 Vol 9 issues 1-4 Vol 10 issues 1-3 And the odd on titled 'no sleep til show time' I've read these over and over, if someone has a few missing ect then feel free, if you want them sent then just cover postage, I can price up on request, may be quicker to mail me, m.kilburn770@btinternet.com Cheers Mark
  12. hi matt, welcome to the club, i had a silver saloon, same rear spoiler..... got those wheels on my forester now, you in the town then? mark
  13. hi mate, welcome what part of essex?
  14. lol.... yeh, been up there a couple of times lately, canary wharf.. to the O2... south london... up to the wheel and back along the embankment to canary wharf again..... was side by side with another forester and that was it..... no subaru's...... (and i got caught in the zone, forgot to add me fozzy to the auto pay ) and i went up to elstree studios last week...not a single scoob anywhere, even on M25.... at least i showed the locals what me fozzy sounds like going through the various tunnels at just a touch more legaly than the limit.....
  15. blimey mate, you were one of the originals!...i remember you from the off. we have had conversations maybe a few year back when i was always on here and was always helpfull with any queries. i wish you all the luck mate in your next project or just life in general!.. i will add though.. sidc isnt the same as it was, i will pop in and out, nothing to do with the club, just think alot of peeps have moved on, shame really, may see you back one day eh? good luck, mark
  16. absolutly,.... i don't even know why it was on my tv when the other half watched in the lounge.... maybe just curious what sge screams about once in a while... nevermind..!!!
  17. yeh i see it, not sure about the number plate though or that he was 'legaly' driving it, certainly not so with the kid rolling around on back seat and no booster seat either,.... i was waiting to hear it, but i don't even think it showed it moving?......looked like a dodgy one to me!!!!!!.... if its one of phil's then the rear end was probably diferent from the front.
  18. sounds daft but did the scoob come with history?.... check reciepts, i know where every previous owner of my fozzy lives!!!... there must be a name,
  19. sounds like just how it was then...... carry on as normal guys !!! if its fitted then they can't fail it unless its not up to standards after sitting in yer shed for 11 months. just have to take for a blast before hand ....oh damn that means going a bit faster...
  20. yeh my99 uk turbo s, first thing i thought of while test driving was...(being as i'd been driving fords) was remember the indicators on right..... incase i looked stupid ect..ect... .... silly me.. kinda back fired
  21. yeh, i thought it was a subaru thing, change gear with left hand and signal with right! really ain't got a clue about why they changed, bl00dy confusing though and made me look a teet. controls are all subaru... albeit too much going on with them. headlamps on indicator too. never mind, i'll get used to mirror signal manouver....rather than manouver signal gear change lol
  22. i'll be honest though...when i test drove my forester with the dealer with me...approaching a small roundabout with cars coming from every lane.. he said go back around ... so.. went to signal right as per subaru controls...... wipers came on, missed me gear nearly hit a car..and s.hit meself... theres me giving it ..yeh i ve had scoobs before and all that.. now for some reason the forester had left handed indicators??? wipers on the right, he did addmit he thought it was different.... i bought it anyway..had to ..thought i broke it lol. ...the end mark
  23. i'm pretty sure they will all fit the same, you can do a face lift on older models by fitting newer parts so sure the the same year model will go, and dont recall the p1 being any different, it was just tuned and styled from 'new' not sure if they used ally panels though...someone may advise on this..
  24. looks nice mate, good price imho, you going to spend on it or keep it simples?, you may hear the injectors too, quite distingtive,
  25. welcome to the club mate, yep pics ...its the law lol.. enjoy scoobyship, its a great place..
