  3. Bringing an 86 back from the dead

    Great work! Do tell us what it's like to drive and don't forget the club meet.
  4. Putting back to stock.

    It is brand new never been fitted and cheaper than the £46 fensport ask for with shipping.

    Really enjoyed following your thread. Great job so far, those valentis look amazing. Enjoy driving!
  6. Malian Catback

    So I made the jump and bought a Malian catback. There isn't much information on them on the forums, so it was a bit of a blind bet. The quality isn't bad at all, however after being fitted and turning the engine on it was apparent that it's loud. Well, too loud for me at least (I have a secondary decat, stock manifold). I reckon it could be comparable to an invidia catback after looking at the design. There is a slight scratch on the left muffler tip when I was fitting it but it's very small. Looking for £300, collection from Swindon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Bringing an 86 back from the dead

    Well here it is, after 5 months and 1 day of GT86 Ownership I can say that my car is finally in 1 Piece! Popped around today with a few jobs on the agenda: Fix O2 Sensor error Fit bumper Polish bumper Re-fit clutch pedal cover It all went fairly easily which gives a nice end to this part of the project and I can't imagine anything going wrong for the MOT so hopefully I can spend most of next weekend and the bank holiday getting used to it and having some fun. I'll start off with the messy and boring image, got those wires on the O2 Sensor loom patched up. The liquid electrical tape is messy stuff but hopefully if it does the trick in keeping those wires safe in the long term i'm more than happy. Once I applied a few coats of it I replaced the Fuse, cleared the ECU faults and the check engine light never came back! the car runs much better too. Then I went ahead to fit the bumper which is another thing i've never actually done before on any of my cars. It wasn't too bad but its clear the bumper is a bit knackered around some of fits clips and other areas, theres a few previous shoddy paint repairs on it and some of the clips under the headlights are broken so it does sag a little bit but its good enough for me at this point and isn't particularly noticeable but im sure some of you out there will be quick to spot it It was already looking great but I wanted to give it a quick wash as well as claying and polishing it to remove any overspray of which there was a fair amount from the bumper. As I said getting so intimate with the bumper today really made me realise that it's quite rough around the edges but hopefully these last steps will make it's bad parts less eye catching. Once I got that done I fit the number place with some 3m Double sided tape, not my preferred method but I forgot to order some heavy duty velcro which I normally use. And thats it! but there was one last little job I had to do as I can't stand these stickers personally!

    Cheers! Must be 'first car modding jitters'. Alignment happening on Thursday. Can't wait! Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  9. Nimz is right they are Rays 57 Getters, in 9.5j by the looks of it.
  10. Price lowered and without some mods to make it more affordable for some.
  11. Lowering Advice

    Just let it settle. Give it bit of time to do that and get that geo done as it will be miles out.

    Could the springs be installed incorrectly? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5000 using Tapatalk
  13. Lowering Advice

    mattt you might find that over time you will drop a few more mm as they springs settle and age, but you are right its doesn't look that much different. Then again it also depends on how flat the road is its parked on and your wheel tyre combo. Mine can look stock on uneven ground.
  14. Anyone know this car?

    Many thanks knightryder. I'm still learning about these cars and their mods. I've driven nothing but Alfa Romeos for the past 15 years and attempting to improve on the Italian's design sense was always a no-no! The wheels and tail lights on that BRZ definitely add to the looks IMHO.

  17. Anyone know this car?

    It's got aftermarket wheels (TSW) and lights (Valenti). Mods are common, highly unlikely any cars are a grey import as the UK spec is good. That definitely is a UK car.
  18. Regional Organisers

    Is there any meets near Dundee Scotland?
  19. GT86 wheels and tyres and mods

    Brilliant guys. Thanks for your advice, greatly appreciated
  20. Anyone know this car?

    I've been looking for a WR Blue BRZ on and off for a while now, and noticed this has been re-advertised a week or so after I thought it'd been sold https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201808179598420?maximum-mileage=45000&radius=1500&postcode=pr29wx&advertising-location=at_cars&seller-type=trade&sort=datedesc&make=SUBARU&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&price-to=17000&model=BRZ&transmission=Manual&page=1 It has non-standard wheels, and the rear tail lights are different to the brochure for that model year. Is this sort of thing fairly common, or is it even a grey import? Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

    Fuck off shitty awful swift!!
  23. 600bhp Driveshafts

    The driveshafts are ok but your car will flip over backwards as you accelerate, so it’s not recommended.
  24. Broken open flash tablet.

    You'd be better off asking for advise on FT86Club, here: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=49953a020aacfaaeec8293a60d67b503&f=88 As this is predominantly a UK owners forum, no-one will have any experience with the OFT tablet as we all use EcuTek.
  25. Life after 5 year old

    Toyota are crazy expensive for brake discs and pads and fitting! I purchased pagid discs from eurocarparts and a set of rear pads. Then got an upgraded front set of pads from Partbox on here (preformance friction Z) £200 or just under and self fitted. Or a local garage would charge a couple of hours labour. So including labour plus new fluid if you wanted to save yourself the hassle I would Expect a drive in and out service from an independent to be about £400 :-)
