Don’t the Aus spec ones get the reclining rears?
Never really have rear seat passengers so it’s a much unused feature.

Next goal is to find a set of leather pre-facelift front ones with airbags and chuck those in to replace the current bench seats

Recently finished off the braking replacements with the fronts now done aswell

Wasn't as hard as I initially expected finding a prefacelift set of front seats in full leather with heaters and airbags.
Have them in and working already. Still aiming to move the memory controller and side panel from the facelift seat plus the seat backs into the pre bases to try get the memory function back but not super bothered if it doesn't work out.

Plus had my first track day this weekend for the 21st anniversary of the main NZ Subaru club
May have had a slight collision with a tyre wall unfortunately. Not sure if it was liftoff oversteer or just getting on the accelerator a bit early. It was a stupid place to be changing gears anyway, was only the second session of the day with it being raining for the first so hadn't quite worked out what speeds to take each corner and what gear.
The majority has buffed out with just a couple of scratches left and a few missing hooks on the bracket below the headlight so nothing major thankfully.

The Brembo's with Ultimates and DBA rotors did a bloody good job pulling the car up time after time without any noticeable fade so besides the squeaking i'm bloody happy with them and the general handling of the car, just need a bit more power for the straights and it'll be perfect.

Couple of GoPro video's from the day

Na didn’t even know that car existed. Looks like a mint setup. The blue bugeye in some of his pics was out on the track last weekend though. Sure he wasn’t going all out at all but goes bloody well. Their might be hope for Kinugawa turbo’s afterall
