    The tein’s were new and only covered 10k from New and the EDFC controller meant you could change from soft to hard or anywhere in between at the touch of a button Which is very handy . But the pink Sti suspension is a nicer feel on the road not cheap but worth it .
    Any idea who makes that suspension?
    Where did you find it?

    Still looking at wide track 114.3 PDC suspension options
    (other than same flawed factory, only-to-be-got-at-the-stealers-for-mental-money, oem struts).

    Yeah... very same issue I have been running into with them.
    Have written to them (KYB) before and their response indicated that the units for the Hawk / wide track cars are (still) under license and this stops them from listing and selling direct. They told me previously the license was supposed to run out in 2017 unless renewed by the license holder.

    It has been quite a while I’ve not posted much and that’s because I’ve relocated from ireland to Kuwait sold my wrx. Good thing is I’ve purchased an Sti back here and you know how it is, I got hooked. The shitty thing is after having purchased the car ( was tested at a test center and I was given the go ahead to buy the car as nothing was detected ) I parked the car at home once I transferred it’s ownership, an the evening of that same day I was doing a regular check on the oil level, water etc ... I was surprised that the engine was dry and had no oil in it. I decided to tow the car to the dealership the following day to have the problem diagnosed, after having checked the pressure of each cylinder there was a drop on the second cylinder (20psi was the reading) usually it would be ranging from 142-160 psi
    We pulled the engine dismantled it and the cause was a ring land failure in the 2nd cylinder and the car currently is at the service center ! What are your thoughts I’d love to hear them

    Jesus that's not good Are you getting it covered under warranty? Or was it a private sale .

    Unfortunately it's a common problem if it's not headgaskets with the 2.5 it's ringlands . New forged pistons, uprated headstuds and head gaskets are a must and will see you trouble free for a good while .

    Hope it's no out of your pocket
