    Does air suspension ruin road feedback

    Hi I haven't forgotten about this post, I was planning on waiting until I moved to my new house before working on the car, however the house move has been delayed so I've ended up fitting it last weekend. I am in the process of editing the install video for my youtube channel and will also be doing a first drive reaction video as I can honestly compare it to the previous setups I have had on the same car as previously it had BC coilovers and I have also driven it on stock suspension so I genuinely have something to compare it to unlike others that guess what its like from what they have read somewhere. On first impressions its a thumbs up, but I want to drive it more before I share my thoughts.

    Does air suspension ruin road feedback

    This is the exact reason I have a used(like new) air setup in the garage ready for my Mini R56. In the uk there is so many opinions flying around RE air, where 90% of those people have never driven a car with it installed. I’m looking to form my own opinions by installing it and giving it a go, if it’s rubbish I sell it for what I paid for it, but at least I know based on my own experience rather than someone else’s opinion. Air isn’t all about stretched tyres and 3 piece wheels. And if it’s any good I will be going for the same setup on my BRZ

    tweedbean's Porsche RS Green BRZ Build

    Time for a little update, so this year I have just enjoyed driving the BRZ, I love that it just works with no fuss and even though its my slowest car its full of drama. I fitted the Mod society auto fold mirror module, it works perfectly and fully recommend it. Install video here I do need to try and get to a show or two in this as it feels like forever since I've been to anything like that. Last week I decided to give it a good clean and get some up to date photos as it sits right now: Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr I have no major plans to change things, maybe a few minor mods here and there over the coming months as I am currently going through a house move which is taking a lot of my focus right now plus I have a couple of other projects on the go. I plan to upgrade the speakers all round at some point and I need to space those rear wheels out a little. For those that want to see the car in more detail, feel free to give my latest video a watch:

  5. Hi all if anyone has any 15mm spacers hanging around they are looking to move on, please give me a shout before I go the new route. Thanks James

    Hi all, its been pretty quiet over the winter. I've just been enjoying driving it even if its just popping to the shops, which is about all we can do right now. No short term plans for any major changes, just little tweaks here and there. I plan to do a walk around video soon covering the current state of play. I also have a new instagram account to follow my BRZ build, I'm currently doing a recap from day 1 to now for anyone interested: www.instagram.com/tweedbean_brz

    What a transformation, really happy with how my BRZ turned out this year, I cant take many positives from 2020 but this is certainly one of them for me. Thanks to Adam Ball for sending me this photo below. From a white write off in March before I purchased it, to how it sits today, what to do to it next, no short term plans other than drive it right now.

    Interior Light Bulb

    How did you get on with these, nice and bright? Assuming no horrible blue tinge, but bright white?

    2nd Gen GT86

    I like the new exterior, its grown on me over the last few days. But its that dash it feels dated before its even out and really does remind me a of an early 2000's MR2.
  12. For anyone looking for some help getting more information about that generic engine management light on their dashboard in any modern car, including the GT86/BRZ/FRS, I recommend getting hold of a cheap code reader(As little as £10) as it can make a real difference in working out whats wrong, check out my latest video covering my recent engine management light and how I managed to work out what it was. Remember to always stop the car when its safe to do so and seek advice from a professional if you are unsure whats causing it: In the 86/BRZ/FRS the OBD port is found here: https://youtu.be/E5WsYqiCAm4
  13. Super easy install, no splicing of wires etc, all plug and play. Works exactly as expected, when you lock the car they fold in automatically and fold out when you unlock the car via the remote or door handle:

    Had some good news RE the history of the car. As it was a write off, I received no paperwork including history when purchasing it. I did some chasing today with a local dealer to find out if it has had the recall work done. They confirmed it had been done by a dealer in Cornwall, so I gave them a call and they were really helpful. A month or two before the car was written off it had the following: - 6 year service so spark plugs etc - Valve Spring Recall - Power Steering ECU and Wiring Harness Recall So the above saves me a lot of time, money and effort as its all been done. In other news this arrived this week from Mods Society, Australia. Its an auto mirror folding kit which im looking to install this week and hopefully record a fitting guide: Untitled by James Baker, on Flickr

    Hi they were from someone called Thomas on Facebook, it came from a recommendation from another GT86 owner that had purchased a pair from him. https://www.facebook.com/tomasz.osadzinski.3/ He is happy for you to contact him directly, I checked before sharing the above link. In terms of the grill I havent measured the stock grills yet to understand the size difference. I will get everything lined up and see where I get/what the options are.
