A good point - shame really. It's an automatic transmission. If I was looking for a racer, the Forrie would not be it. The test drive just clinched it.I'm waiting for Rerze to post back as I trust his opinion Hey there Deja and Shapey. I'm loving the auto now. Neither was the Toyota marketing department it would seem. SSEdit - www.users.bigpond.com/su...iles/Page394.htm have just released their MY06 kits. *shivers*, *shakes*, *rolls on the floor in fits of laughter*You get the idea.Please don't rice a Forester :(. The maximum boost pressure is lower at 600 mmHg (11.6psi) compared to 700 mmHg (13.5psi) in Impreza WRX.Camshaft weight has been reduced 1700g by using a hollow shaft and an assembly of sintered cam lobes.Luckily the MY06 Forester escaped the nasty grill that the new WRX and the Tribeca get - well until 2007 when the new model comes in. I may just drop the bike in the rear rather than put it on top. If you can find a local dealer for one, and your bike fits on it, grab a Swagman XP with a 40mm tongue on it (assuming Subaru are still insisting on being different to the rest of the world *rolls eyes*). yes indeedy, very much so he sayshe also urges me to advise you, do not use your rear demister on your rear window if is tinted with a film, The only reason that could happen would be if a completely dodgy film was applied in a similarly dodgey way by a similarly dodgey tinter. Failing this, for a flask of single malt (per evening) I could keep an eye on things, Decision has been made and it's an auto ;), Re tested the demo. I've tried that break-in method, it works fabulously. I never realised K mart was such a treasure trove. *shocked* have no idea what you are talking about. Single pipe rails for the side Like sidesteps? Most certainly is ;)The users tend to be a little over zealous but it's understandableHas the tint been done yet ? Certainly makes sense.Speed, handling, smaller size, high cabin area.There are a couple of WRX's in the South Island (one lives in Twizel) I've met ;)I always wondered why they didn't make the move to Foresters as more adaptable than the WRX's and easier to add on extras required for the job. Has been three days now.I'd use the business line but I have yet to disable the route tracking on it.As for the Tribeca being better than the Murano - *cough*, dreaming.Edit - because I like new people (visitors). really bad advice where did Deja say it was advice - it was an explanation.Read posts more carefully - it will help you learn.RegardsEdit - I like too, bad advice Yes we know you give bad advice. I promise to stay on the sensible side of feral !! !Where is the best place / value for money + good service and am i wasting my time searching around to try and save a few $$$$ or should i be able to get these for say sub $200.I live in Waverley in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney. As that is what I'm likely to do...... That would require some serious mods. )Thanks in advanceJeloz. The select shift was too much fun and I suspect had an impact on fuel use (negatively)Sound system was on the mark but will need some work on the sound stage for my tastes. It's such a short trip from Tonka land to Ricey Monstertruckville. ON topic--thanks for your pics of the Obsidian wonder, it really looks the Biz. Hi SS. They disappear with time. I can send you a link if you wantI'd prefer a factory package.Agree about the stuck on unit although at least you can then have a portable unit too.+ and - for both. If the phone works later ! That'd make for an interesting ride ! Cheers Deja. Only thing on my radar at present will be a high flow air filter (K&N) after run-in.Maybe, big maybe, retune the ECU. I didn't note too many issues maybe because of the power on tap but it did seem to hit too high a cog at times.I wasn't being nasty Deja, they were honest questions. I doubt I will be modding the engine in anyway for quite some time. Excellent question. Although I really don't think I've driven enough ( only about 500km ) to really make a proper judgement.At about the 1500km mark, I'll be better able to judge.edit: Morning viZitor. The ethanol blends already provide for that. maybe a brake pad or caliper upgrade ? Slow night huh ? Will check with the service team. Yep, that's for sure. you cannot & do not use your rear demister if your window has tinted film. Regards and good night And you. I keep thinking I should have worked harder on making the Avic fit but it would have meant installing it in a pod and I didn't like the idea.I'm tossing up between the Tomtom 300, a Uniden unit, a Navman pin or a GPS card for my laptop.All very different. I might be looking for an extended test drive Rerzedep - how do you manage that feat Hi Shapey. Dual range is used on NA as they are lower in KW and Torque.
