Mix of both again? Orange would look good, provided you intend to keep the orange accents you currently have, black would allow you more freedom to change the overall look later though?

Yeah and black would sell better but no plans at present.
Staying with orange n black theme. Red white n blue stripped off as a bit naff. Got more orange vinyl todo rh side same as lh and replace some damaged bits.
Just gets the car instantly recognisable.

Worst things to do plugs on too.

Also, before they get silly expensive? Aren't they already like 8k? Not silly as in the near 17k prelude on Facebook last week but still not cheap. 350z is now 7k, were 3k 6 months ago

Tbf I'd not looked at the prices of them in a bit, maybe 2 years, seems they've already gone up a lot then. I did want one one day but even 8k was pushing it for what I'd want to spend and I likely couldn't justify the fuel costs, still sad that I missed the chance though, they look like great cars and it looks like you've got a really good one.

Well new car purchase has gone abit wrong lol.
As part of my checks i removed the cambelt cover and was horrified to see the cambelt in a poor state the back of the belt is melted.
Car has done 70k and belt changed at 60k...but not idlers or tensioners.. this is as per Subaru spec. Inspect. Crazy i know. Ive done a few flat 4 impreza belts but in this instance i want the provenance of a specialist stamp and warranty on the work so its parked up til 16th when its booked into a specialist for a major service. In that time ive noticed a cam cover weep of oil so there doing that to. Also noticed a drain on the battery with it parked up. Alarm went off etc. Forums point to the dealer from new installed trackstar tracker pulling 300ma so we need to find it and cut the power. It could be anywhere..
So my Wagon sold and went yesterday so im down to 1 legal car as there either sorned or not safe to drive.
Mondeo man for 10days lol.
Was abit pissed but glad i found it as im sure the belt wouldve let go by now.
