  1. Knocking

    How loud is the sound, and do you feel anything, anything at all, through any point of contact (steering wheel, pedals you're in contact with, the seat)
  2. TRD calipers into 09 Aurion GTX?

    @Darren69 snows nothing? Snow you know! :D
  3. TRD calipers into 09 Aurion GTX?

    Personally, I reckon sell 'em and buy some kluger calipers, at least the rotors will be well priced and easily found down that route ;)
  4. Front Rotors/pads

    When I was reading into it, the general consensus was that slotted/drilled rotors don't offer any performance gains, it's purely visual aesthetics.
  5. One of the first things to do would be to check that the phone itself is fully updated, might be a bug that's already been fixed.
  6. Trd aurion engine sound

    Rattle on startup, but goes away fairly quickly? vvti. Noticable rattle on idle, but lessens as you increase the revs? Supercharger coupling.
  7. 2014 Aurion Strut Brace

    But don't go for the ridiculously large diameter swaybar (what is it, 23mm?), 19mm is the sweet spot.
  8. Kluger brakes fitted to Aurion sx6

    You are the man! That'll definitely be the first thing I do when I get my sportivo back from the 'beaters. When I had the TRD the price on rotors was extortionate, so I like the sound of vastly more affordable parts :)
  9. gsv40r presara door handle sensors

    I've gotta say, I prefer the real speed being under what the speedo reports. Even though I know it's in my head, it feels damn good to lock the cruise control on the north side of the speed limit. Silly, but makes my driving experience that little bit more enjoyable.
  10. Better 2GR-FE Engine Cooling

    I'm with the others on the don't change it scope of things. But I'll respect that's not your intention, so what about setting up a mister in front of the radiator?
  11. Competitors to Aurion Sportivo?

    Gotta say, after writing my TRD off recently, I was left scratching my head as to what to look at going for with my payout. If I had found a g6e for the right price & kms I would've probably jumped on that as a kinda diagonal step upwards. Would've strongly considered a recent model Mazda 6 if the prices weren't still recent model prices. Did consider a BMW which was a similar size, model escapes me though. Happily though, I ended up with a Sportivo from the same year as the TRD. Only 77k on the clock, and with a number of luxury features that I didn't have in the TRD. I miss the extra poke of the supercharger, and the bucket seats, but otherwise absolutely love this car :)
  12. Floor mats

    It's about $130ish for genuine mats from the dealers, that's for both front and rear footwells.
  13. SX6 grinding/rubbing noise

    A simple test you can do yourself is to place the car in park, but don't apply the footbrake. Jack up the rear of the car, and spin the wheels by hand. This should give you some basic feedback on the state of the brakes/bearings. A second test is to hold the wheels and see if you can give them a jiggle, first side to side and then up/down. Again, it's not guaranteed, but if you do feel a little bit of play then there's definitely a bearing issue. Also, did he supply invoices showing the bearing had actually been done, or did he simply tell you?
  14. Kluger AWD on Aurion

    The amount of engineering required to fit such a system in kind restricts it to a lotto dream, be horribly expensive to pull off. Be a lot easier and more affordable to fit in-wheel electric motors on the rears, then the largest amount of work would be fitting in a suitable battery system and running the necessary cabling.
  15. Engine Carbon Clean

    Some experience already on this forum: Subaru Upper Engine Cleaner just need to rustle matt36415 up to see what the long-term result was.
