    It's pretty easy. Ensure you have all your documents. Lots of threads on here with what you need to bring, and that's the hard part. Show up to the office in Vancouver (on Main st. I think), and it...

    I did get it. I flew in to Vancouver on Wednesday morning, cleared customs and got everything to WWS. They were very quick and I was able to pick it up Thursday morning. It was a quick and painless...

    I had mine replaced with OEM. The press the old ones out and new ones in, pretty simple repair. Getting the control arms out is the fun part. Pretty sure the 05 USDM GTb part will fit. Some guys go...

    Thanks very much. She actually called me and I'm just waiting to get in touch again. I'm hoping to fly in this week to clear customs and pick up the car. Is it reasonable to hope to visit customs in...

    My car is arriving Aug 22, and I'm at a bit of a loss about who to call. Are WWL and WWS the same thing? Also, what is the number for Karen?

    This thread has been good reading but I have a couple...

    Too low for RORO?

    I've heard that it can be a losing proposition to try and ship a lowered car RO/RO. But how low is too low? I've got a set of lowering springs for my Legacy GTB, and would rather put 'em on the car...

    Yahoo auc has dashes, for example https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j556484794. But you're probably better off just having it vinyl wrapped, swapping looks like a headache and it seems...

    When are you going? I'm headed back to Canada myself in July after 9 years in Japan, and am looking for shipping options. I've got the price nailed down for RORO but it would be nice to split a...

    I got a spec B and it looks like it's basically just aluminum control arms and bilsteins. My car also has a limited slip in the rear dif, not sure if that's standard. I don't think there's any more...

    nice to hear you found a solution. I'll do something similar when I get some time. At the moment, installing new cv and steering boots, and diff seals is a more pressing priority. Also a tactrix...

    That's too bad. I spent a few minutes this weekend checking the relay terminals and was able to confirm the voltages. As you've discovered, the big concern with using the relay coil 12v wire is that...

    Just had a look at the relays in the FSM. I think you should bridge the two sockets in what you have labeled as prong set 1. From what I can tell that is the circuit that is closed when the relay is...

    Really keen to see how you make out, there will be a lot of these legacies coming to Canada in the next few years and this is a much better solution than the aftermarket DRL modules.

    If you decide to fill a container I'd be interested in chipping in for a space. I want to fill the car with stuff and can't do that with ro/ro from what I've heard.

    I had a V.4 WRX, and I feel the seats were the same as the V3 STi I had. I actually preferred the 98 WRX; they had the VF22 turbo with power a little higher in the rev band. My butt-dyno says it's a...
