Just ordered a set of Kumho I'ZEN KW31 off QuattroTires for pretty cheap. Anybody have any experience with these? Reviews seemed pretty good so I pulled the trigger on them.

Looking awesome Paul! I just got into the subaru game with an 07 Hawkeye wagon not too long ago and I'm loving it. Unfortunately it's just an auto 2.5i but it's still a fun little daily.

I can't remember, have you graduated yet? I've still got 2 more years :(

So they look almost new now.

Haha thanks man. I'm still sad you sold your celica...

You'll see my car in Q lot at uni, say hi!
Yeah I'm sad too... :(

And I won't be Q lotting it this year, might as well take the bus because of this U-pass garbage  :unamused:

Looking for a cargo cover for my 2007 Impreza wagon. Just installed a sub and would like to cover the trunk so people can't see right into it.

Exterior & Interior / Removing surface rust from rock chips

Unfortunately the foz has a few more chips than id like to admit. Does rondex sell a primer for the deeper chips to the Metal/Plastic?

37J is the paint code for Satin White Pearl. I have one spot on the roof that has some rust built up, took a nasty rock, any advice for clearing that up apart from the fibreglass pen, sonax and rust inhibitor acid? Ive also never done anything like this but would like to get better at it...Any advice is welcome. Ive read that this colour should contain The Base Color, The Semi/Gloss Coat, and The Clear Coat. and just practice a handful before attempting with a tricoat.

Also should do the Legacy, perhaps a good project to learn how to touch up??

@Vince Sonax review?
We have some filler primers but only in spray cans and it's not going to fill a larger chip, your best bet would be clean it out with rust inhibitor, a bit of spot putty or fiberglass, a bit of primer, then the base, the pearl, then clear.

In for TTI Deals, which Rondex? any Satin White Pearl for a '14 Forester?
There's only one in the city, 177 Isabel :)  Yeah I can mix up any colour but I'd need the paint code. Should be in the passenger side door jamb. Pearl whites aren't easy though because they're what's called a tri-coat. You need to apply a base of solid white, then a translucent pearl coat, then a clear coat.

I remember seeing it at Piston Ring a long time ago, like when Plasti Dip first became a thing. Not sure if they still have it

Apply a bit of rust inhibitor acid in the spots with a Q-tip then apply some touchup paint in there then clear nail polish over top to seal it. Contrary to above the touchup paint at Rondex is $15, I work there.

Yup the console comes with Halo 5, GOW Ultimate Edition, Rare Replay (pumped about that), and game downloads of Ori and The Blind Forest. I've always loved the Halo series so I had to get Halo 5

Nice buy. Any modifications besides the exhaust and tail lights?

@McRae555 They're both very reliable cars, mechanically. The suspension design is relatively similar between the two, although they don't actually use the same components. Balljoints and bushings should be taken care of on cars of that age but aside from that, you are most likely to encounter electrical issues in the form of solenoids burning out for the power options, or other old electrical problems. The 2JZ-GE and 1UZ-FE are ultra-reliable and will go for a long time when taken care of. The NA 2JZ-GE is a real dog though, it kills the fun you could be having in an S16. The chassis itself is pretty good with some stiffening up, or you can just enjoy the quiet comfort. The Celsior is going to be slow and pillowy regardless, even with the V8. But the interior was top notch world class at the time in terms of quietness, and it's pretty a nice place to be even by today's standards. I would choose the Celsior, since I found the NA S16 to be pointlessly slow- might as well drive a full-on luxury car. The interior is nothing special in the Aristo either, until the later half of the model's run, where it got some nicer finishes and bit more wood. Earlier models just have way too much plain plastic. The fuel economy is still bad with the I6, so even that doesn't justify it. If you wanted a sportier RWD Toyota, but not a TT Aristo, an Altezza would make more sense than an NA Aristo.
Are either of them easier to safety? Or about the same considering they both have USDM equivalents?

These were shot in auto mode in HDR for the most part, but I've been starting to mess around with the manual mode a little bit. The photos were also edited in Lightroom slightly so those aren't straight from the phone.
