General Chat / White Smoke
« on: June 20, 2017, 07:30:51 PM »
Hi Guys

So I have recently noticed that my XT is puffing a little white smoke out the tail pipes.
It's intermittent and seems to only be in the mornings (it's gotten colder in the Cape so it could be related) drive to work and it's there and home with nothing.
White smoke, doesn't smell like coolant, car radiator fluid in all the tanks hasn't dropped.
Any thing else I should look for? Or get checked?

Car has been decatted and tuned so those of you with the same mod list did you notice anything similar?

Wheels, Tires and Brakes. / Pad and Disc combination
« on: February 07, 2017, 07:05:17 AM »
Thinking it will be quite nice to track everyone's current pad and disc combo and feedback on it, along the lines of the below:

Vehicle SH XT
- Pads - Ferodo Premium
- Discs - OEM
- Rating - 6/10
- Could do with better initial bite.

Nice to see what combos are out there.

General Chat / Service History-input
« on: January 08, 2017, 10:15:26 AM »
So I am wanting to do my 200k timing belt service and have ordered the kit from Rockauto. This is a general question and I'm after everyone's input but how much value is there in having this job done at a dealer (Subaru/Pyro etc) vs a reputable private mechanic.
I would have proof of parts but obviously there will be no workshop stamp for the belt change.
And by value I done mean knowledge wise but rather in terms of resale value.

Full service history will still be done at a workshop.

Turbo Tech Chat / SH XT what Gates timing kit?
« on: January 07, 2017, 07:25:20 AM »
To me it looks as though TCK328 is the one to go for, however a few US sites say this doesn't fit the SH XT?
Has anyone imported a kit for an SH XT from Rockauto? if so what was the kit?

Thanks, just want to make sure I get the right kit here.

What is the interval time for a time based Cambelt change? We all know it's 100k km based on mileage but paging through my service manual it has 96, 84 and 48 months.

Gents, what are the best options, shocks/springs to drop my Foresster XT, without going for coilovers?

Hi Guys

Quick hello from a new scooby owner in CT.
Vehicle in question is a 2007 XT, bought her with 125k  on the clock, she has been very well looked after.

Was quite a change from my usual barrage of German vehicles however I am loving it, goes like a dream, space for the family and capable in many areas.

Looking forward to hopefully meeting a few of you guys and learning a bit more about my Scooby!
