    Replacement for Ohlins R&T

    Yep, until track activities resume, there's no point in replacing them yet. May get round to it one day...

    Replacement for Ohlins R&T

    If you're using the track to compare, I wouldn't even put Flex As in the mix tbh, I keep being tempted to switch back to the mono sports now that my car isn't used much at all.

    MartinT's BRZ

    My reasonably new battery has never read over 13v with the car off... think the highest has been 12.7v and that's classed as fully charged etc

    tweedbean's Subaru BRZ

    You can usually get things cheaper from Japanparts. My TRD aero fins were cheaper than UK companies were charging. Even something cheapish like the eurowinker indicator relay was cheaper via japanparts than partbox (even with club discount)... things just take a little longer to arrive.

    tweedbean's Subaru BRZ

    Having bought a front wing myself, the boxes are huge with plenty of space around the wing. Not surprising when you realise how flimsy the things are... as I only had my 86, I had to leave the box behind at the dealer

    We'd like your feedback if possible...

    I'm moving shortly and will be ~10mins away again.... don't move 😂

    DAB Aerial options

    Decided to get the kinetic aerial. Fitting isn't that bad, but it's something you work out how to do exactly while doing it, so a pain in the arse first time around but probably a lot easier next time. Don't need to drop the entire headlining, can get away with just the passenger side trim bits, even then it's only the A & C pillars. Took almost all of the old aerial cable out except the piece from the bottom of the A pillar to footwell. Had some blue bits to fit to replace the standard grey trim pieces so was taking all of the center console bits out anyway so ran the new cable along the top of the footwell and up to the back of the head unit. 5m is a little long but nothing that'll leave you with a mass of cable hanging around.

    DAB Aerial options

    Didn't think that was an option as the aerial is already amplified? Splitters I've seen say they won't work with an amplified aerial

    It's a 2013 plate so the old style aerial.

    DAB Aerial options

    Looking at Martin's thread, the BRZ is different, will drop the head lining and have a look what mines like. Potentially fitting a reverse camera along the passenger sill so would do the dab aerial at the same time. Not a fan of going near the curtain airbags... I've seen some YT videos of people putting cables over them... 😑

    DAB Aerial options

    Ah, the standard one wasn't amplified? Is that a BRZ thing? The 86 one is afaik. The model you mentioned shows a power input + amplified on dabonwheels.

    @Badger can you get away with using the existing cabling for FM+power and just need to route the DAB cable whatever way works? Looking at what you have to remove (basically most of the interior) to get the stock cabling out, it's probably not worth it for DAB!

    Ah, ecutek app + dongle?

    AIM being pulled during normal driving

    How have you been logging the IAM?
  15. I'll be honest and say you had more joy than I thought you would have. The previous dealer (if it was different) clearly messed up doing the original work and I would have thought Toyota UK would just point the finger at them and tell them to foot the bill? On the up side, it sounds like the dealer doing your recall knows what they're doing and should be able to check the engine. You should be able to get a warranty on the engine because the recall work should give you a year, and it'll be pretty hard to distinguish between oil starvation events if another one happens?

    Your Fuel Economy?

    It depends on the track, at Oulton Park I'm sure I got less than 13mpg fill up to fill up (includes the short journey to the track).
  17. Mike

    Your Fuel Economy?

    You'll get around 10mpg from a stock car on a track day. I've had to fill up after 100miles on track before...

    Clutch gone?

    It's not the pedal, it's in the engine bay. Just needs re greasing properly. It's behind the engine near the top, just open the bonnet and get someone to press the clutch pedal, it'll be the only bit that moves...

    Problems with standard jack

    Trolley jack goes on the painted cross member behind the under trays for the front, and the diff for the rear I believe. Front can be tricky, mine needs the car raising so it will clear the front bumper. I just use the scissor jack to change wheels, never had an issue, even on a sloped drive, handbrake on one wheel holds it fine.

    Got mine changed under warranty after 4 years when it failed

    Adjusting coilover height

    If moving the rings changes the height differently between front and rear, you'll need to adjust them by different amounts to get 10mm ride height change. Just measure the current height for each corner before you start and then you'll know if you've ended up with the right adjustment. Just remember the car may need time to settle fully so don't just lower and measure.

    Adjusting coilover height

    10mm on the rings though? I thought changing 10mm on the rings wasn't going to raise the car 10mm, it'll be more. And if the ratio is different front to rear, he'll need to adjust by different amounts.
  23. Where abouts are the connectors? Can see what state mine are in if possible. Out of the sprinters I've had the TD manifold on the longest afaik...
