Subaru Impreza 2011: Fitting out exhaust, custom lights and body kit
I wouldn’t buy them without doing some homework to make sure they would suit your car. Find a Subaru specialist mechanic, one who can advise on performance options, and check with them.
Subaru Impreza 2011: What is the update on the Takata airbag recall?
We contacted Subaru to see if there was anything further to add, and they told us that if you were willing to provide your rego and/or VIN number, they would check with customer relations. They added that normally, the first letter alerts the customer that the recall is pending and advises that they would be in touch when the parts are available, but without knowing what phase your car car is at, they couldn’t offer a definitive answer without investigating. I would suggest you contact the Customer Relations Team (1800 22 66 43) and give them the requested information they need to take it further.
Stylish car for $15k?
With your budget you would be looking at a 2010/2011 VW Beetle, which had a regular automatic transmission and not the troublesome DSG that was fitted in later models. That’s a big tick for the Beetle. The Citroen C3 is a decent car, but an orphan in the sense that there weren’t many sold and you won’t find a dealer on every corner. As for the BMW, they’re too expensive to service and repair if you use a dealer, and they have too many niggling issues that spoil the great driving experience. The Subaru Impreza is well worth looking at, but my pick of that bunch would be the Volvo C30.

Subaru Impreza 2011: Brake disks warped after 30,000km?
Brakes are not covered by the warranty; they are considered consumables that wear out as a matter of course. That they need machining at such low lays is frustrating, have you thought about asking the dealer to show you the discs and justify their opinion they actually need machining. There's no harm in questioning your dealer.
Subaru Impreza 2011: Seized wheel nut
I would be asking the service centre to explain why the nuts are seizing when they service the car. I would suspect the nuts are being over-tightened and their wheel guns need re-setting so they don't over-tighten.

Subaru Impreza 2011: What is the optimal tyre pressure?
The tyre man has fed you a line of BS. The is some advantage in running nitrogen in a race car that is operating under extreme duress on the race track where it would be a more stable gas and maintain the pressure better, but there's no advantage of running nitrogen in a road car. I bet he charged you for the gas as well. It might not drop as fast, but the pressure will drop just like it would if you used air, so you still need to check the inflation pressure regularly.
