I plan on getting the front bumper (Including fog light surrounds), rear bumper and boot handle all colour coded.

The plan for the plate is to make a custom mount that replaces the passenger side fog light, with the drivers side becoming a feed for the induction kit.

Just need to find a decent bodyshop.....

I'm looking for a tower strut brace preferably in carbon / black though can accommodate silver (No other colours). Something like the the 20th anniversary one here, though this will be 300+ once postage and customs have been added.





Any suggestions?

That's the one I imported from Japan parts , worth the money.
Just watch exchange rates when the is better for importing.

I also got the front skirt lip trim at the same time
Delivered including duty and royal mail handling fee I'm sure it was all under 300

Its about 270 including shipping for the strut brace at the moment plus the import duties when it lands. It looks ace, though I have also been looking at the Perrin one which is about 200 landed unless I can find a UK stockist (Not as nice looking, though I am planning on getting some Perrin engine bay bling).

Default Secondary Air Pump Recall

Just booked my MY11 hatch in for a service and been told there's a recall notice on the secondary air pump, new unit to be installed at the service.
Anyone else had the same notification?

Mmmm, a bit of digging and in the US there is a recall to replace the relay and the pump if it's in bad condition... it applies to Legacy, Outback, Forester & Impreza/WRX. So I assume it's possibly the same thing...

"A faulty relay that controls the air pump may let the pump run continuously, at which point the pump could overheat, melt, and catch fire"

I'll see in a month when it goes in for service, but can't imagine they'll replace the pump if they can get away with just the relay!

Will let you know what happens.

in the usa there is litigation in the UK it will be owners fault for using non oem air fresheners.

perhaps be quite and wait long enough

1) they catch fire instead of a warranty claim
2} they will be in garage for head gasket or pistons done
3} out of warranty and owners foot the bill.

IMHO

opps maybe im just too cynnical

I have a question.....

The 340R upgrade is an excuse tweak and an exhaust upgrade right? Does the upgrade involve removing the second cat or is it still there? I'm trying to ponder if changing the exhaust will add much.

Thanks

When I picked mine up a few months ago, I was told it was a cat back exhaust, ECU replacement, and mine also had a PRO R panel filter. I've since replaced that with a Cosworth item as it was filthy as anything.

Hope this helps.

I thought the ProR filter was cleanable and reusable?

I believe it is, but I think it was as cost effective to replace it with a Cosworth filter, than to buy the kit to clean the ProR. I prefer replaceable filters too.

Contacted my local Subaru dealer regarding my MY12 STI 340 R and they confirmed that a Secondary Injector Air Pump relay would require replacing. Took the car down and they had it completed in 20 mins.

There are 2 cats in the system I think, so does that mean that there are still 2 or the second one has been removed? I'm thinking it could be an easy way for a few more horses 🐴

Remapped, new back boxes and second cat delete pipe.

If yours was a 320r perhaps just exhaust would be the same.

IMHO the back boxes in the proR kit were complete carp. 😡

Most I know fell apart inside and started rattling 10-25k miles

Some sold car and still weren't replaced. Mine did 12k and failed under warranty Waited ages no joy. So replaced after warranty ran out. I think just binned not worth selling.

Amazing what people are told

ECU remapped (on an exchange basis or return to subaru via dealer).
2nd Cat replacement pipe.
Replacement sports silencers

I had "a" Subaru remap applied at Subaru UK HQ (Coleshill) with both cats still in place but an H&S catback exhaust - 340 BHP/360lbft

H&S centre pipe removes the resonator.....

Don,
Who remapped your car?
I'm not sure where to take mine. I'm based in Northamptonshire. Have Invidia N1 catback 3", 3" downpipe (not fitted)
Any other cheap mods to squeeze a few more ponies from it?

As stated - "I had "a" Subaru remap applied at Subaru UK HQ (Coleshill)" as a gesture for those of us who purchased the cars new prior to the 320R free upgrade.

Default Upgrading Original Xenon D2S Lamps

Has anyone changed their dip beam D2S lamps for some of the latest generation ones and if so which ones and what colour temperature?

I'm wanting a little more light and throw on unlit roads, but kind of like the colour of the originals, does anyone know what colour temp they are?

I was considering going for something in the region of 4800K. Auto Express did a test in 2016 and the Osram Night Breaker Unlimited Xenarc was the best, has anyone got any first hand experience or suggestions?

Thanks in advance
Andrew

Just checked my old bulbs and they are Philips 85122 + 110F17. Looking on the Philips website the "standard" bulb seems to be 4400K. The gen 2 looks promising https://www.philips.co.uk/c-m-au/car...ry.p-grid-icon

Cheers Don
I was thinking the Philips ones looked interesting, if a tad expensive. I might give them a go.
Thanks for checking the colour temp of your old ones, 4400K makes sense, I think I'll go to 4800K for a slightly whiter output.
