Re: Bucket seats

Doing the 10k km interstate road trip back in May and never had an issue with the seats in my VRX, when it comes to comfort.

Re: A/C compressor worth replacing?

One tip, if they say it just needs a gas top up get a 2nd opinion, been told too much gas is just as bad. Got an old Isuzu where I volunteer and it works great for a time then it frosts up so much the airflow is affected, only solution is to turn off the AC and let it defrost for a few minutes. Need...

Re: 2009 Lancer Vehicle Speed Sensor

I've got a BT OBD2 to connect to my Android HU, I think the software can also display fault codes, but I've never used it for that. Don't think it can reset fault codes though, maybe there is an app I can get?

Re: Horn installer in VIC

As long as it doesn't need more power, like an air horn then the stock wiring does have a fuse so if it overloads it should blow the fuse first right?

Re: Quiet tyres

Don't know how they compare but I've got the RE003 from Bridgestone on my VRX (225/40R18) there should be a R16 size to suit, mine cost $209 each so not the cheapest if you don't get the 4th FREE.

In the pic below I used them on a trip back in May.

Re: Ralliart P0365 CEL

Unfortunately lately I've only been able to do small runs, maybe 10-15 min a trip. Planning a day trip up the coast in the new year.

Will add before I fixed a wiring mistake with the DC it did drain the battery to much and after 3 days I needed a jump.

Re: Ralliart P0365 CEL

Just jumping in for a moment... I think I know the answer but should you always disconnect the positive before charging, and how does this affect the ECU? My battery is only 6 months old but I have noticed it dropping in volts. Background - I've got both dash cams hard wired in with a box that cuts ...

Re: WTB: Black bonnet

You could try wrapping it for that carbon fibre look?

Why so much, did the roof on my old coupe a few years ago and it was only $300, wouldn't think a bonnet would be much more?

Re: What did you do on your car today?

2nd hand car yards are worse, especially those not set up with a full dealer for shop. With my CJ had wheel issues when I first got it, one wheel had 3 different nut sizes on it, including one I could not find a socket to fit. Too bad if I got a flat on the side of the road before the issue was addr...

Re: What did you do on your car today?

From memory wheel nuts are meant to be around 90Nm, maybe 95? I keep a torque bar in my boot if I need it. Oh and a lot of the time I now carry my torque wrench :)

Re: Help buying Ralliart

I think the biggest issue with the Ralliart is everyone will say, "nice looking EVO mate". Seriously I've had some thinking my VRX is an EVO. 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 the...

Re: Automatic Door Lock- is this feature available?

What I want is the doors locking when you go above say 10kph. I don't like the idea of them unlocking when you stop the engine or put the car in Park (those unfortunate souls with CVT). When you park you don't always want the doors to unlock until you're ready to get out, just imagine pulling up in ...
