I’d be keen to see how you mounted the front camera.

I got my 750S 2 Ch installed the other week too.

Sadly I couldn’t fully tuck the front wires out of sight.

See bad photo below.

Hey man, I just mounted it behind my rear view mirror, as high/close as I could get to the rear view mirror support.

A closer inspection on the STI quick rack, it doesn't look too bad actually. No obvious signs of leaks etc from when it was on the previous car.

I will have to take a closer look when I take it a part to replace the seals - which I will order the replacement kit today


what are you going to do about the steering angle sensor?

Is this only an issue with 2015+ racks?

I thought that was the case... I will message Shae later today. I know he's got the GR quick rack too and not the 15+ rack.

My steering sensor was giving me issues after I put in a spec C rack.

Apparently some VDC equiped cars with the quick racks installed have experience problems with the steering sensor tripping and engaging the VDC..

I've been looking up and reading different threads/forums, and with messaging Shae. I found this thread quite helpful (see in particular posts #58, 70 & 80). In summary, best option is to install a switched relay on the power supply of the Yaw sensor. This disables the VDC, traction control & hill start assist but you maintain ABS. I'm not worried that I lose traction control (as I always turn it off) & hill start assist; but the good point is that you can easily switch it back it on, ignition cycle and there is no problem (handy when you give it to others to drive etc).

A quick update! When I bought my Impreza RS seats, one of the covers on the driver's side was missing. The seller said she couldn't source it to no avail.

Using the manual for the Impreza, I found the relevant part numbers of the missing components that I needed and ordered through Partsouq. However, Partsouq only sent one or two pieces of the entire order, said the majority of the items were out of stock and refunded me the difference. I waited a few months but the items never became available so I had to go to the stealership and source the parts from Japan via the stealership.

When I collected my foz from the two recalls, I checked with their spare parts and the last part had come that day! :thumbs:

Last Sunday, I finally installed the missing cover/components! It was good because I could finally lower the driver's seat (I put it on the lowest setting :lol: ) and now it matches the front passenger's seat height. Pictures below.

Part Numbers:
- 64143AG020JC (KNOB LIFTER RH) x 1No
- 64107AG000JC (CAP LIFTER) x 1No
- 64115AG210JC (COVER HINGE OUTRH) x 1No
- 904710007 (SCREW TAP FT M4) x 2No

I also bought 2No Subaru oil galley plug adapters & gaskets for installing my oil pressure and oil temp sensors; I can't wait to finally get that sorted too haha. Part numbers below:

- 11024AA210 (PLUG-MAIN GALL)
- 037018200 (GSKT-ALMINIUM)

Thanks for looking!

Cheers, Pete.
