General Chat / Solid towing bar
« on: December 04, 2014, 09:03:22 PM »
Hey guys,
Do any of you know where I can buy a solid towing bar/pole, as in the picture?
Preferably the Johannesburg/Randburg/Fourways area.

General Chat / June 16 Drags and "Breakfast Run"
« on: June 08, 2014, 07:04:14 PM »
Hi guys,

Which of you are planning on going to the national drag racing at Tarlton on June 16th?
Why don't we all get together somewhere, and drive all together to Tarlton?

I'm not from Gauteng, so do not really have an idea of where we could meet and so on.

OK, how about this:
Who is going to the national drags at Tarlton on the 16th?
Perhaps we can arrive all together?

General Chat / Auto Lock

Not sure if this has been discussed before.

Is there any way to program my Outback's central locking to automatically lock the doors once I start driving?

Does anyone know when the new Forrester Diesel will be launched in SA?

General Chat / Best dealership in Gauteng?

Hi guys, I am looking at buying a new Outback or Forester.
Which dealership around the Johannesburg area would you say is the best to go to?

General Chat / Outback or Forester
« on: August 29, 2013, 03:29:31 PM »
I want to buy a Subaru again, but do not know if I want an Outback or Forester. I'd like to buy new, but will not buy the new Forester, I think its ugly. I had the previous generation Outback and loved the space and ride, was just a bit low.
I would buy a low mileage previous gen Forester if I am persuaded to rather buy a Forester.
My questions:
Perhaps Loopsoostroop could answer me about a lift kit. Are they available for Outbacks? Will it be the same kit as for a Forester.
Which of the new Outbacks come standard with a lsd in the rear, and which of the previous Foresters did?
Diesel or Petrol? I would prefer diesel as I often tow, but those dang dpf's are a pain in the butt. I live in Moz, so taking a jerry can of 50ppm diesel from SA will not work.

What say you?

General Chat / Subaru Diesel Questions
« on: November 05, 2012, 01:52:28 PM »
I am a first time member and would love some information from you guys.

I loved my Outback but sold it quite a while ago. I want to return to the brand but the salesman put me off.

He said the boxer diesel has loads of issues with the dpf after I told him I travel into other Southern African countries all the time. Then he told me to carry my own fuel with me! I wanted to give him klap for being stupid. I do not want to tow a fuel bowser behind me if I wanted to travel Namibia, Botswana and Mozambique.

Obviously only SA has 50ppm diesel available, and not even in all towns or cities. Can you drive from Jhb to Cape Town all the way on 50ppm? Is it available in Colesberg or Beaufort West? I do not think so.

So my questions to the diesel guys are:
Do you have issues with your dpf?
What do you do if you go outside of South Africa for fuel?

I sincerely hope to get a few favorable answers.
