    Welcome to the forum! If you look in the DIY Guides sticky thread at the top, you will see repair guides to all the common issues. Is that what you mean by 'do's and don't's' ?

    Very friendly I think as a rule, to be honest the lack of punctuation in your post made it quite hard to read.

    Harty tbh I like the car but not a patch on the Scooby everything smooth in the Audi my impreza was just over 300bhp and was more rip your face off kind of acceleration but on a plus and main reason for my swap insurance is a hell of a lot cheaper and fuel costs a lot cheaper Scoob got about 18mpg at best lol
