  1. I doubt you'll feel the difference. More feel will be felt from any torque limits changes or changes to the torque curve. Waste of time and money trying to remap a NA engine imo.
  2. How many miles had you done?
  3. If they fail prematurely then yes, otherwise they are considered a wear and tear item (i.e. no). I don't know how long you would reasonably expect bushes to last.
  4. Not sure whether that section it is fixed too can easily come out on its own or not. I know the bit around the gear stick just unclips upwards, but if you don't get the angle perfect you can bust some clips. I ended up replacing it when I pulled mine off - it went back on okay, but I always had the niggle some of the clips were broken, lol.
  5. Perhaps it was well used by the previous owner. Not sure what to suggest other than getting to the other side of it, to see if it looks intact,
  6. It's a small displacement NA engine, not really any gains worth bothering with. Better to save your money towards a more powerful car in future
  7. Looks fine to me, are you sure you are using 3.5mm? Do you have any headphones you can try plugging in to test fitment?
  8. Possible that the actual jack socket has fallen away from the hole.
  9. Ask them for a print out of the order status page, it should tell you exactly where it is. If they won't, then they are trying to hide something.
  10. If you're within 6 months of purchase from a trader/dealer, take it back and have them fix it.
  11. They're not cheap tyres, one reason I didn't want 19s. (Not that my 18s are that much cheaper). I wouldn't scrimp on tyres for an ST personally.
  12. What model tyre do you have? There are 7 235/35/R19 Michelin tyres on black circles.
  13. On the rear of a FWD car they are mostly holding up the rear end and providing a contact patch for braking. I wouldn't worry too much about having an odd tyre on the back. I'd be a bit OCD it didn't match though, lol. Avon are good (my mum has them on her car), but not a top brand I'd stick on an ST if it was me. What others are available in your size?
  14. Have you looked online, black circles, places like that for them? You can always order tyre only and get your local trusted garage/dealer to fit it. I'm sure they won't mind if they can't get hold of them anyway.
  15. Being an ST you need to stick decent tyres on it anyway imo. The traction control and suspension are more tuned than on the standard cars. I'd only put the same ones on mine, but then I like the big lip on the Eagle F1s.
