    Valenti "Winker" Relay

    Sorted!!! I unplugged the cable to the old one, plugged in the new one and tie--wrapped it to a suitable place. Left the old one in place in the end. 😂

    Valenti "Winker" Relay

    Relay on mine definitely pulls out towards front of dash unless you mean to pull the mounting clip out too ... I've put a far amount of force on it and it doesn't appear to want to go anywhere! But I'm going to have another go later today ... BTW I bought the new "winker" relay through Nengun and to my delight didn't pay extra for customs charges .. came in about £54 on card statement which I though was pretty decent.

    Valenti "Winker" Relay

    Anyone fitted one? If so, how the hell do you get the old one to part company with the mounting clip without breaking either the original relay or the clip?? I've got the dash panels off and can see the flasher relay but access is pretty tight and there are some not so nice metal edges up there! I've tried thin screwdrivers but at the moment the two do not want to part company ... (so the dash panels have gone back!

    mine is NA .. so 0/20W is specified .. Plus I have a couple of litres where ECP screwed up and delivered the wrong stuff when I ordered 5/40 Petronos oil for the other halfs Alfa .. Although given it uses pretty much nothing in 10k miles it's not likely to use any until this cr@ppy lockdown is ended .. managed just over 3k in last 12 months

    4 year service done today (Subaru dealer so my credit card is in hiding! Damn VAT too) Diff oil and brake fluid changed. 0-20W put back this time as they used 5-30 last. I wish I could find them a shorter oil filter and then my Perrin cover might actually fit!!
  6. Actually you spotted me in the Blue BRZ heading into Wokingham but was distracted by SHMBO in the passenger seat so I missed waving back! Anyone here?

    Front Pads

    That sounds so .. horribly simplistic & basic! Probably more reliable than the electronic type ... on my old Alfa the wires to the pad sensors fell out after a couple of months! They weren't cheap pads either (they were a good brand as when I use the brakes I want to stop!) I super-glued them back in the holes in the pads to stop them flopping around but doubt they would work. I just had to check them more often visually.

    Front Pads

    Bit surprised that the front pads don't have wear indicators (to warning light) but been searching online and I keep reading "acoustic wear warning" .. Is this why there is pad material left but they seems to "grind" at slow speeds? Did it first after I washed the car so I thought it was the usual rust layer that appears on the disc being scraped off but now I'm not so sure ... And boy is is hard to see the pads through the calipers!

    New owner, Subaru BRZ in blue

    I'd prefer the extra grip! Even if I am in the minority .. Even in a gentle shower tonight the rear end stepped out on a mini-roundabout with lots of traction control lights in dash .. but that may also have been down to the proximity of two petrol stations and an industrial estate. That part of the road was liable to be glossy with diesel.

    Cheers. I ran SP Sport Maxx on my old Alfa 156 and was more than happy with handling and breaking, but obviously that was a FWD. I went through 3 sets and they all did 30-40k miles. (Except one rear pair when a shock spring plate collapsed!!!). They are my preferred choice for the BRZ if I can ever get these damn Primacies to wear out!! 😁 Also thinking of going 225/45R17.

    Let us know how the Dunlops work as they are on my list. Did you stick with 215/45R17s or go with a different size?
