Re: Parts for sale

150 for the pair? I'm not from Vic, WA, but would pay postage. Will have to work out if they would be compatible with my 09 VRX though. Are they HID?

Re: WIDE BODY RALLIART!

Fair enough regarding finances then, the Evo's are definitely much more expensive. I wasn't trying to be negative or anything with my suggestion, just sometimes you see people come in a spend thousands upon thousands on parts to make their RA/NA look like an Evo, which is certainly their preference....

Re: WIDE BODY RALLIART!

Surely for all that effort it would be easier to get an Evo and avoid having to upgrade most of those parts? The Evo has a wider body does it not?

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Yeah like I said, you definitely don't want to put old pads on new rotors, so if you are considering it then you will want to do them at the same time, otherwise you may find yourself needing to buy new pads. Even if you only do 1000km with the new pads on the old rotors, they may develop ridges tha...

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Craig's vehicle is same as mine, so what I've got installed will fit for sure. DBA ones are pretty good, but obviously if you change rotors make sure you change to new pads at the same time.

Re: When will I need new Brake Pads?

Just chiming in, I've got Bendix pads front and rear and they generate an unholy amount of dust for some reason, they really make the alloys look terrible. Installed them with new slotted rotors, so there shouldn't be any issue with the contact surface. Rears are a fair bit worse than the fronts.

Re: Proximity Key Boot Issue?

Reading this I'm confused if people mean the boot button on the key fob, or the keyless entry button on models with the smart key. On my VRX, the button on the key fob MUST be pressed twice in quick succession. Not sure if you can just hold it down, that may also work. The keyless entry rubber butto...

Re: Door Vibrations

I get door rattles too since I have an amp and some decent Alpines in the doors. It's annoying but I've never found out a way to stop it, and I've looked a few times

Re: EGR valve discussion

I think you missed my point. Your previous definition was obviously very broad. It's like saying a burger is something you put in your mouth - it sure is, but that doesn't mean you can describe what a burger is using that phrase. It doesn't differentiate it from any other food or non-food items, in ...

Re: 3rd/Third Gear problem M/T

I went with either Castrol VMX-80 or 75, can't remember exactly. I imported some Redline stuff but it honestly performed pretty crap so I changed back to the castrol stuff.

Edit: Just make sure it's GL-4, as I believe GL-3 contains additives that can damage transmissions designed for GL-4 onward

That's not really true though. A motor is an electrically operated object, too, but a solenoid is not a motor.

Re: EGR valve discussion

A solenoid is a bit like a relay, except that solenoids are used for mechanical actuation - controlling a valve, or opening the locking pin on a door, etc. while relays obviously act as an electrical switch. Like all valves, EGR valves need a method of actuation, something to open or close them. Cou...

Re: 3rd/Third Gear problem M/T

As for changing the oil, I can offer some insight as I recently changed mine 3 times within a couple of months... First, go get a 24mm ring spanner if you haven't got one. You won't get a 24mm socket and ratchet in between the gearbox and the subframe to undo the drain plug. Trust me. Second, get on...
