Re: Have you ever lost a brake pad?

Years ago, either ACA or TT had a segment about cheap import pads that "shatters". Have not heard that actually happen to anyone until now.

Re: How to kill a 4B11 engine

Girls often treat a car like a television. Switch it on and off. Too bad she doesn't have a real man in her life to prevent her from bumbling into motoring disaster. How much is a recon engine, 3k fitted?

Re: Brand new evo x complete engine 4b11

Re: Ralliart P0365 CEL

Can't remember when they got rid of the 10 yr drivetrain warranty for original owner. Worth checking if you are the first owner.

Re: Help buying Ralliart

Oh and the 2nd issue is if you're ever thinking of getting a tow bar for a small trailer then you can't with the RA, the SST is not suitable and they just don't make a tow bar kit for the RA.

Re: Help buying Ralliart

Rather timely about having a maintenance reserve to pay for repairs, in case you haven't seen the replace transmission thread.

Re: Replace Transmission

Now that you have the code, you can start researching. If you go to a dealer, they will replace the whole thing. They don't inspect individual components and just follow the service manual, which says replace. If you go to a sst specialist, they will look at the springs in the torque damper. If it i...

Re: Help buying Ralliart

Even if the test drive is fine, you need to have $4k in your back pocket for repairs (clutch or timing chain). You don't need that only if you can wait to save up without a car when the triangle light up on the dash. Are these things known for being unreliable or something? Seems like a lot of peop...

Re: Pollen Filter Replacement

Mine is almost always on recirculate so filter is still clean. Don't like the smell of exhaust from the cars in front.

Re: Brake Rotor/Pads Recommendations?

Since you are in Sydney, just get something decent from Tempe or Tyresales. Both have sales from time to time. In June, I got a set of run out FK453 215 45 R18 for $118 each when Tempe had a 15% off sale on ebay. Tyre was 2 or 3 years old but I already anticipated it won't be new stock. A week after...
