Re: rant, Alloy rims for free - how many rims to make a "lifetime" set of rims

You had said you had 4, I didnt see the point in buying a set of 4 or breaking them up.

Re: Buyers remorse, need inspiration!

How much more life can I expect out of an EA82 with 400k+ kms if driven and serviced well? While that does seem like a lot of kms, a well serviced motor still should have a reasonable amount of life in it Could I downgrade to an reconditioned EA81 without having to modify crossmembers, use adaptor ...

A TD04 one off a WRX should be close enough, the only difference is the rear hole in the flange is about 10mm further back

Yes I agree, I doubt the immobiliser would cause a miss but I wonder what would happen if you disconnected the imobiliser while the engine is running? Would it cut spark or fuel,... or does the ECU only look the immobiliser signal when starting?

I have a mate who own a workshop and is having a very similar issue with a customers 02 Foz.
He has done everything much like you have and is now thinking it might be an ECU or imobiliser issue
