General Chat / SG9 XT Break In

So I was at Mall of Africa Tuesday evening with the family, just to get out of the house a bit. Lock the car when leaving the underground parking, and then check one of the doors (as I always do).

One hour later, when we get to the car the drivers door is open (but still on the catch, about 10 mm ajar). I first think that I must have left it like that, and somehow the other doors still locked. It's always a mess when getting the kids and their stuff out of the car, so that's not impossible.

There was not much of worth in the car (Bosch laser measurement tool, safety bag, torch, tyre pressure guage), but nothing was gone, so I didn't think much of it until the next morning. When I get to work I lock the car and check the drivers door. Not locked. Try again. Still not locked. Then I figure out that the mechanism is jammed, cannot move the internal (at the handle) lock toggle at all. Stays unlocked. Then, when looking closer, see that the external key lock spring plate is all messed up, and the door panel is slightly dent around it. Someone did have a go at it!

Last night I stripped the internal door covers and had a look. Lock is all messed up, and the panel around it as well. They must have applied a massive amount of force, as the whole lock turned 90 degrees inside the panel. The lock and door panel interlocks to prevent this, but they just bent all the little lips straight out of the way. They must have had a power bar or ratchet with a long screw driver like attachment at 90 degrees, forced it in and then turned the whole lock. That worked the cables and rods enough to unlock the door. Pretty easy to get into a Forester really.

Now, my question, would someone actually try to steal a 2007 XT? A dirty one with 16" black wheels at that?

Or were they just after potential stuff in the car?

I'm not so sure, Mall of Africa is the car theft capital of Midrand.

Either way, it seems that someone disturbed them midway through whatever they were doing, or we just arrived in time.


Looking for one of these please:

I'm in Midrand.

Bought these from an engine builder for my Forester, but I ended up needing oversize pistons and undersize big ends and mains.

General Chat / Subaru reliable? Pffffttt

I'm busy falling out of love with Subaru.

Head gaskets on EJ255/7 motors that last are more of the exception than the rule. My blocks, at 190k km, needed re-boring, a hone left flat spots.

I'm just not so sure anymore, but what else is there? We'll see when my engine is back together if I'll enjoy my car again. That is when Subaru SA eventually gets stock of the few O-rings and washers that I needed from them.

I need to spice these up a bit.

Black is a safe option, I know it will look good.

What other options would look good without being toooo zef? White maybe?

Car is silver.
