    Badger's BRZ

    I think so. Came back from Norfolk with the seats folded and the car seemed a bit stiffer. Mainly fitted it to put a luggage net on Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Steering Wheel Locks

    Had to have one on my old focus at and what a pita. You either had to get out and put it in the boot everytime or have it rattle on the back seat. Most of the time it will stop an opportunist thief but I think they are few and far between to take the whole car. If they want the whole car they come prepared with battery grinders etc Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Badger's BRZ

    After this I decided to address the other shortfall with the BRZ, the lack of boot luggage nets or clips. I brought a net off eBay and a Summit Racing C Pillar brace which was really easy to fit once I had worked out where it went, I have since hung a net from the brace and removed the dangling straps. Then the Saturday just gone I got bored and decided to fit the HKS Intake Duct and HKS panel filter, which involved taking the front bumper off, I cant belive how difficult it is to take the side repeaters off. Difference between OEM and HKS Future plans are HKS UEL manifold, cross over pipe and exhaust with remap. 18" Rota GRA Wheels in Gold with Michelin Pilot Sport Tyres Tein Coilovers with EDC

    Badger's BRZ

    I picked up my 2015 BRZ back in November 2018 direct from Subaru in Cambridge with 14k miles on the clock. I am the 2nd owner as the 1st owner sold the car back to Subaru as he was unable to drive it due to ill health. I attended the Museum of Power Cars and Coffee event less than 24 hours of picking the car up. (Picture taken by the event below) The 1st thing I did was fit a Pioneer AVH-Z5000DAB head unit (ordered before collecting the car) with Apple Car Play (work phone) & Android Auto (personal phone), this was chosen as I could have both phones connected via Bluetooth at the same time, little did I know the BRZ doesn't have DAB in the UK even though the radio has a DAB button, I tried a DAB aerial split, which didn't work with the shark fin, I tired a mag mount mounted upside down in the boot which was better but still wasn't great, so I took the plunge and replace the Sharkfin aerial with a proper DAB / FM aerial. Having used this for trips to Norwich and back the signal doesn't drop out (like the other half's Duster). The other high priority item was to fit a reverse camera (Fensport) so I didn't back into anything as the rear visibility is limited at the best of times and my driveway is tight between 2 houses.

    TPMS question on a BRZ

    Do you have the sensor id? If so it can be done with the carista app and OBD2 dongle. Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Toyota software

    Got mine through today so played with it at lunch, its really easy to use and you can enter new TPMS id's for other wheels. Just need to record what they are for each wheel each time. The interior light timer was useful as it goes off too quick, adjusted the follow me home headlight timer too.

    Is the GT86 going to be safe for my girlfriend?

    Years ago my misses wouldn't drive anything other than small hatch backs. Then got the keys to a Mk1 ford Kuga for a long weekend. She went off to change the baby in the car after a show and when I got back she had set the seat and mirrors to her position so I said fine you drive and every since then she has loved the bigger cars and now has a duster. Sometimes they need to drive something outside of what they are used to / like to see that it's not all bad. She drew the straw at my old transit though Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Is the GT86 going to be safe for my girlfriend?

    Same here. If I provoke it the car will slide but most of the time it doesn't when driving normally and I'm not always hanging about And I still have the OEM tyres (premacy hp) Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    My misses is exactly the same. So 1 week after getting the BRZ I chucked her behind the wheel and she loved it. If you provoke it, it will chuck the back end out but you drive normally it's fine. Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk
