i'm quite interested in this system, if not for the reduced insurance but rather for the security and piece of mind..

Available on their website (http://www.walldonwaypartsshop.co.uk...K_STI_SACC3393) for 113.40, seems like a pretty good price if they were ~250 before.

seems like they have one left but who installs these sort of things? and is it suitable for the 5 speed in a rb5?

I have one fitted to my 6 speed STI, brilliant bit of kit. I think the fitting is done by lifting the car and fitting a bracket around the gear linkage in the transmission tunnel under the car, the pin then locks through the bracket and gear linkage at the same time. As said before they only fit the 6 speed box.

They do a version which fits the 5 speed, as fitted to my WRX.

For a RB5 you need a different version called a Barrier Deadlock, requires some welding unlike the Dipol.

Sorry no, but your best bet would be to start with a main dealer. My Barrier Deadlock was fitted at the dealer when the car was new (2000), but they didn't actually do the work.

The Deadlock design was probably dropped in favour of the Dipol, due to it being easier to fit (no welding required). The Deadlock was a better product as the pin stayed fixed in the device, and therefore couldn't be mislaid. Both are very good though.

I'm getting mine fitted by Clark Motorsport in the early new year. Told them about it when it was booked in for the MOT/Service and they said not a problem.

any idea what the part number of the "barrier deadlock" is? don't fancy calling up a dealer and asking them for some random part, at least if i can quote them a number, their monkeys can go away punch it into the system to check

Yes it is!

Or at least it was... It has, as stated previously in this thread, a part number of SACC3393... Perhaps they have discontinued it now I don't know, but that part number is specific to the UK Subaru Franchise and was created by I.M (the official Subaru importers) when they commissioned the product and started to sell it through their Dealer Network as an official Subaru upgrade/accessory.

Subaru part numbers for standard factory parts are generally made up using a format of 5 numbers 2 letters 3 numbers ie 15208AA100, but all accessories commissioned by I.M for the UK market have a part number which starts SACC (S=Subaru, ACC= Accessory) followed by 4 numbers....

Just as any accessories promoted by I.M for their Izuzu Franchise uses a part number that starts IACC.

If you google the part number then you will see that apart from e-bay, the listings are nearly all from Official Subaru Dealers.. If this part has now been discontinued it may be worth your while contacting these dealers to see if they still have stocks of these and wan't to get rid of them for a decent price

Honestly a fitting guide shouldn't be needed. It's held on place by shear bolts and is simple to fit. The trickiest part is probably lining up where to trim the side panel for the locking pin to go in...

I'm guessing it's a squarish bit with a hole in it..... It's what the pin goes through. Attaches to thre gear change bits under the gaiter trim. The pin doesn't block the lever it locks through the 3 chunks of metal....

Are these recognised by insurance companies yet? If so what range of discount do they seem to attract?

No idea, i think they used to be and i think their website says they are. I fitted it for my own peace of mind cos i got used to having one on my other scooby. I'll check with my insurance company when i call to get the whiteline kit added. Not sure mine would be 'officail' though as it wasn't fitted by a sanctioned installer. Not that i could find one of those in 3 months of looking

Thinking of getting one of these, at the price of 113 its a snip. Just been to the Walldonway website and they are out of stock. Any ideas when they may get some in or somewhere else I could get them from for that price.
