All about the bottom line it seems...

I don't know how they will survive. For reasons other than yours it also seems I'm on my last Subaru. Probably Honda or Lexus next.

Ja, that's messed up man.

I'm doing everything myself and my car is still blowing up.

Sounds like a release bearing to me, had that on my X, same symptoms. The clutch plates themselves might be fine, but most people do them as half the expense is getting the box out.

Not going past the rings?

Is it using oil?

Given Subaru's reputation with soft cylinders and oil rings, might be worth looking at.

The Farm Road / Re: Replace Subaru with what??

I went to look at one during lunchtime, 2011 model.

Biggest drawback is interior space. Although it is much larger than a Foz outside it is narrower or about the same on the back seat, and due to the sloping back window the boot space is also limited. Not really for a family with three small kids. Legroom is more on both rows.

Otherwise I would trade my Foz in a heartbeat. I can go for a more refined car now after 7 years of SG Foresters.

I find myself looking at Lexus RX 350 ads....

Anyone have some experience with them? Looks like good value secondhand. Might be a bit more reliable than a Scoob.

Good thing I don't have any money.

I unfortunately do not make diff guards for the SH. I tried once to come up with a workable template, but failed. Not much to fix to in that area.

Hei Chris, bly jy leef nog man!

Is daardie outjies vir voor of agter? Watter km's hardloop daai Foz nou?

Myne breek vinniger as wat ek hom kan regmaak...  ;D

1. Not sure how the ARB or custom bumpers would affect airbag activation and warranties and insurance? Adds a lot of weight. I would stay away personally, but understand the appeal.

2. You can import the mats yourself via something like Shipito or directly from the supplier. No one in SA will stock them for a Scoob I would guess.

3. Use the OEM recommended platinum plugs. Plugs on a Subaru are a major pain to change, so it's best to do it as few times as possible, so the 100 k interval for platinum is a win.

I managed to fit a 215/65R16 G012 in the spare wheel well by simply deflating it. Then you obviously need something handy to inflate when required. Tyre bombs or a simple hand pump will work in a pinch.

Looks like a lekker car!

I'm in need of a stock turbo inlet pipe if you want to sell the old one?

Few are the men that can remove the stock turbo inlet pipe without cutting it to pieces. I'm not one of them...

True... but maybe it came off during a build so you never know. I managed to salvage mine, engine going back in tonight.
