  1. At least you knew about it before hand, I found out on the day! The cruise & lane assist is what made it absolutely boring to "drive" for me.

    Rear parcel shelf query

    Had a look at this last night... It feels pretty flimsy and easy to pull to where it looks like it should be but just snaps back to the wrong position again. Nothing else looks out of place and identical to the other side other than where it meets the parcel shelf. There's a white bit of metal that looks like it should hold it in place (you can see it in the OP's pic) but even putting it over that doesn't fix it properly. Think I'll leave it

    Had a quick chat with @Lauren at the sprint and have decided to just use the bolt that the reel is connected to as that's what Lauren's done and if the rear reel is connected to it, it must be strong enough (seems pretty well bolted in to the car anyway!). Fit the rear piece last night and you can do it without taking any trim off really. Just lower the rear seat back, remove the 2 pop clips holding the boot liner in at the side and you can get access to the bolt with an extension. A normal socket set should be strong enough to get the nut off.

    BBK Options

    Had the reyland kit (reyland curved groove discs) fitted last week. Produces a fair amount of brake dust but nothing a half decent wheel cleaner can't shift (and then deposit on to the road... oops) but other than that, the feel is great and didn't have any issues at the sprint at the weekend (although hardly the heaviest on brakes!) One issue I sort of have is when applying the brakes in reverse, there's a clunk when the pedal is pressed. Has anyone else experienced it? It only does it when the wheels are going backwards (jacked it up and span the wheels and it'll still do it). Only possibilities I can think of is the pads having some movement (although they seem solid), the discs having some play around the studs - they do with the wheel off but would have thought the wheel + nuts would clamp it on tight enough so there's no movement. The only thing I could find loose was the brake line on the drivers side where the braided line connects to the main line. The clip is on properly but it's like the groove is too high on the braided line so the clip is just keeping it in the general area and not tight like the passenger side. Thoughts anyone?

    You make a valid point! Will just grab a blank to put in the buckle then...

    I'm guessing the stock belt doesn't flap around too much if left loose then?

    Sounds like a solution to bending it then. Will make a decision when I do it. As long as the plastic trim isn't causing a bend in the strap, think it'll be bolting to the car.

    I get that, but that bolt is what the belt reel is attached to so surely must be strong enough?

    Any specific reason why you wouldn't use it?

    I might end up doing that as I don't know if the harness will foul the seat belt or not (if a spacer won't fit either) but using that bolt seems a cleaner install as there's no bending or twisting of the harness. Just want to make sure I'm not missing anything as it must be strong enough as the load from the seat belt will go through the bracket before the car itself. Your pics are the only ones available of the actual mounting points, other than a number of Germans who have used the top isofix point which isn't strong enough.

    Finally getting round to installing my harness and not overly comfortable with bending the metal connecting the rear strap to the pillar. Is there a reason not to bolt it in between the actual seat belt reel and the bracket (using bolt in image below)? Seems a better place as its directly out towards the front seat then rather than coming down and being held in a bit by some plastic??
  12. Japan parts do them, but they're similar price to the subaru link that @BRZ-123 gave. And then you'll have to pay VAT + duty on them so it makes sense to just get them from subaru. Unless you find someone selling them 2nd hand...

    Setting yourself as the target this year? Personal preference but think the flag would look better on a blue car. I'm guessing you wanted this for round 1 but ran out of time?
