Hi all
Will be looking for a STI Forester the 1st quarter of next year, I am in the Midlands near Gaydon, where would be good places to go for a look around?
Where's the best place to go for mapping in the area and other such work?

Thanks

Just had mine mapped at TDR, can definitely recommend them. Taking mine back in soon for some other work when funds allow, and will be using them for servicing despite the hour drive to get there.

I had mine done on recommendations I got here when I picked up my fSTi last year, the guy I used was Richard at Fbtuning. https://www.fbtuning.co.uk/

Before dropping it off I fitted an axle back exhaust (HKS) and a new airfilter (Cosworth) and supplied him with a SWRD fuel pump and 3 port solenoid for the map. Cars been flawless since, decent on fuel and quick enough for the moment (felt so much quicker compared to fresh off the boat). He's in Princes Risborough which is what an hour or so from Gaydon? He dropped and picked me up from the station, really pleased with the service and work :)

Was there a solution to getting a UK satnav system fitted/retro fitted?

Have you guys done any suspension changes? The STI set up seems quite good, but I see quite a few people doing aftermarket arb on the back? And things like that

You could do what I did and buy the alpine add on to their stereo for £400 which is absolute garbage , no wait its not even that its "£$%bage

I went for a Sony XAV-AX200 double-din unit replacement so I could hook it up to my phone for the satnav and hands-free etc, works OK but I think that there are better and cheaper units out there.
