  1. Hi STImulation, I got to the bottom of the cam sensor / misfire , one of the diodes on the alternator had gone down so now she is running great , i just have a couple of little jobs to do , ac controls the off button doesnt work , i do have a new control to fit (or swap the button) and it is now smelling of fuel in the cabin so fuel leak somewhere i guess. Then who knows, the way work is it might be time to downsize the fleet will see
  2. I will get a better picture up soon but for now this is the only one i have of them together . The leggy is still misbehaving so she is in my garage haha
  3. turns out that my signature was right and also that the wife was true to her word , she let me have another scooby, and without selling the leggy too BONUS! So am now the proud owner of the leggy and a wrx sti 2018 plate and love it so now have the best of both worlds, well i think so anyway!
  4. I love it , so much so that after a motorbike accident the wife said i could buy any car i wanted but i just didnt want to sell the legacy. I have just put some prodrive wheels on just like my old ones and think it looks great . So service kit next and maybe speaker upgrade
  5. Welcome to the club, i too have a legacy , albeit a newer b4 variant 03 plate
  6. Spotted T reg sti at croft circuit at the jack frost rally
  7. I wonder if anyone can assist me . I am trying to fill out my registration information for my car now its had its first mot but i cant seem to find my emmisions data anywhere so i dont know what the tax bracket is . Has anyone else had any dealings with first registration forms Any assistance would be apreciated
  8. They might aswell come off as the radio is going to have to come out since its all in japanese and the radio frequencies are no good unless you love radio 2!
  9. Yep that looks like the winner , it has a sony double din that does have a tv function on the menu
  10. Not really an introduce yourself as i did that a while back but my car arrived just from japan and i wanted to introduce her A 2003 legacy b4 rsk s-edition I dont suppose anyone would know what the brackets are for on the 3rd picture ? They are stuck to the back window i wondered about a spoiler but seem a bit low for that
  11. Thanks for that guys , its all just so i know what information to put on the forms , i have plenty of time and an mot to get through yet , once it arrives of course
  12. I wasnt planning on just adding any old digits , i was more interested in wether dvla were happy to use the jdm system in its current format or wether they allocated their own system in order to make it into a 17 digit uk standard , eg maybe have the applied model code in front of the number and include hyphens or something similar
  13. I am not trying to make it something its not i was just trying 5o make sure i put enough information on the forms , i just want to make sure that i am legal and perhaps just as importantly , should i sell it in the future all the correct details are there
  14. I am in the process of importing my car and have been looking at insurance etc Whilst doing this i realised that the car doesnt have the standard 17 character vin so my question is can i make it into a 17 number vin or do i just leave it and only put on the paperwork the 10 digits of the chassis number that i have What do you guys have on your log books? Thanks
  15. Spotten on the m61 at around 1pm today a tidy terzo taking it easy with a 555 plate
  16. Hi all. I havnt been on here for a good few years now since i had an early m reg silver wrx which i went to japfest in with the group and then a p reg sti type r in sonic blue , both of which died after i had to sell , the wrx died under a couple of tonnes of scaffolding and the type r , p 927 yae was stripped and broken But after about 4 years away i have now moved back to what i love in the form of a legacy b4 rsk s-edition , may or may not be a keeper as its an auto but we will see in about 6 weeks when she gets to the uk !! I loom forward to chatting with you all
  17. i believe it will but unless you happen to have a full turbo car there , ecu , wiring , engine , brakes etc then it is a very expensive swap , probably easier (and cheaper) to buy a turbo since that is what you will be insuring anyway.
  18. some idiot has decided that they should build 5 of them , i dont know whos fault it is but heads should roll for this one! i am beginning to wonder if this is industrial espionage. http://www.manchestersubaru.com/test.htm the side view just looks , so criminal
  19. its helpfull comments like this one that make people want to avoid using forums like this one!
  20. i have tried looking into ecu types before so i could get information on mine but it seems like there are a million and one different ecus fitted to the same type of car , i didnt get anywhere , i even tried to start a subject about listing ecus and the car they were fitted to to try and narrow it down but nobody seemed to be that intersted so didnt get anywhere
  21. i agree , my scoob definately , my last memory of driving would have to be my favourite , the only trouble with picking a different car to use is u might not actually like it if you have never driven one before , just imagine how disappointing that would be!
  22. i hope it is electrical otherwise it is slightly broken as the needle is stuck on vacuum , i have an electrical gauge on mine and it seems to work fine , i purposly bought a digital one so i could take it apart and fit the digital screen to the clocks under the speedo next to the knocklink so dont need a pod just another idea for ya!
  23. shame we didnt have the model code and all the guessing would stop , or the chassis number , whatever it is i think the 'bitsa' tag is very accurate and it is one of them that you would warn your kids about! STAY AWAY , STAY A LONG WAY AWAY !!
