Peccy

I got it from Vivid Racing, USA

I wouldn't reccommend these guys though - took around 8 weeks to get here and they charged me US$50 shipping

It's a genuine Subaru part - I will see if I can find the part number for you.

More lovely Type R's I wish I didn't use fotopic [img]images/smilies/mad.gif[/img]
SIMB you asked about Octane booster well I have only ever used optimax and had import scoobs for 4 years with no problems.

Too all Type R owners What do you do with your centre diffs?
I find my car much scarier than my WRX was (but fun in the dry!) I leave my diff set fully back as don't want to damage it but have tried it 2 click forward (1st orange) which put the drive forward and a bit more understeer but it clonked when I turned into my road! Some people leave them and others change them if the road is wet ect your advise please.
Cheers Col

Fatman...

What a Beauty!!!

Very Nice indeed

Where did you get that rear spoiler from? and what exhaust is that on the car? Both of which are spectacular!

Some VERY SWEET Scoobs displayed altogether!

No, not standard - I just thought it suited the car perfectly, didn't like the huge rear stickers, etc.

Col stone - I have a play now and again with DCCD, I posted the same sort of question regards the 'Juddering' when turning a corner at slow speed, this is normal so don't worry.

Ian - See you sunday.

Peccy,

I wish I could say that I was responsible for the full spec. All I have done is build on an good foundation. I was after blue, but the deal was too good to miss.

Knocklink is deffo a good idea, it has shown up some dodgy petrol in its time.

Lamda link - Dont really look at it The cars mapped, so im not bothered TBH.

We need some grey and yellow R's now.

Has anyone ever seen a Red one?

Well, i feel this thread is coming along nicely, however i reckon there must be a lot more Type R's out there, come on lets get them on here!!

Also, a question, what does everyone do about proof of servicing, do you just keep the receipts, use a folder etc, or has anyone worked out a way of convincing their local Subaru garage to let them have a new one?

i have the original japanese service book, however it is impossible to understand how to fill it in accurately.

any ideas?

I have a large box file full of all paperwork regarding my car - service records, mods, etc.

It's all dated and the service sheets have mileage and service check lists

Im lucky enough to have a full history in a UK service book. Right from the very firsy oil change.

I also have a folder with all the receipta dn emails where I have bought things second hand.

So far, without servicing the costs, the car weighs in at 48,000, including the purchase price in 98 and extras/upgrades.

Scary, but most of it was the previous two owners.

I dont think that figure is out from most either.

Centre pod has Voltage, oil pressure and oil temp, steering wheel mount has boost guage (1.3bar).

Never have been sure if mines a ltd or not (as it has the roof vent but no plaques - also has the red on steering wheel/gearstick).

I use the DCCD a fair bit when it lashes down, keeps the back in check a fair bit, and allows even faster progress in said wet conditions.

The previous owner imported it from new, and put some different (progressive) springs on (unsure of make) as he didnt like the ride too much! Even so, it still has a hard ride!

Recently found out that it is also a fire spitting monster (without flamer kit - didnt want to drill through the Nur Spec)!

I dont think I will have another car for a LONG LONG time! They are such a complete package!
