    I've been looking for some roof rack/cargo area tie downs for my '06 WRX wagon. I've added the cross bars from the Outback Sport, which have loops for bungie cord hooks.

    I don't want the conventional bungie cords, but rather what I was hoping to find was something with vinyl straps with plastic snap connectors, something like what you might find on a fanny pack. So far I haven't had much luck in finding this.


    I was wondering about the cargo net that's offered for the Baja's bed.

    Any thoughts? Do you think this could work on the roof rack, and/or cargo area? Does it stretch to fit cargo? Do you think it might be too big?

    I checked out the Baja's net today, and decided it wasn't a good idea, for a couple of reasons. One, the front attacment stap is short than the rear one, so that it fits the Baja's beed properly. Second, there's not much of a range of adjustment for various size packages.

    For the Baja I'm sure it's fine, but not for my needs.

    Look at Subaru's basket carrier, it comes with a custom-fit net. Get a Chase credit card so you earn Subaru Bucks, then it's free! I have $300 saved up right now.

    I really like my Yakima LoadWarrior. Works great on my Mazda P5's OEM crossbars. Should work fine with the Subaru. Can load a ton of stuff on it. (Not quite a TON.) Road trips with 2 adults and 2 kids can be done. I can also mount my Yakima bike racks and kayak mounts to it. I got mine from the local RackAttack in Portland.

    Thule also sells one. I don't have any experience with it. Looks similar, a little more expensive.

    I recently got a 2006 subaru impreza 2.5i. Does anyone know of any performance parts for it.
  • Does anyone know how to take a crank pulley off and put a lightweight one on.

    Thanks dustin
  • I just got a 2006 Impreza Sport Wagon. Does anyone know where the subwoofer is located in this car?

    Under one of the front seats, though I forget which one.

  • Thanks, juice, I found it under the drivers seat.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Cool. :shades:

    driver's seat?
    Either they changed the mounting or you're RHD.

    Under the passenger seat is where mine was.
    Now I have under each seat.

  • It is under the driver's seat and it's LHD. I didn't check under the passenger seat yet, maybe I have one under each too.
  • hypovhypov Posts: 3,068
    Nah, you wouldn't have another one on the pass side if you already have one on the driver side. I added the second woofer.

    So, they did indeed changed the mounting and where mounted.

  • I have a 2007 impreza outback sport SE. I seem to remember that the dealer told me that it had bluetooth integration built in. Now that I have bought a bluetooth phone, it doesn't seem to recognize the bluetooth in the car. It seems to have a mic in there. Does anyone know if this model has bluetooth built in and if so, how to activate it?

    Many thanks for helping in advance.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Hmm IIRC the 08's (late availability) have blue tooth on the Impreza line. I wasn't aware that the 07 of any subaru had bluetooth.

  • Thanks for the reply.
    I bought my 07 wagon in Mar so it wasn't a late 07 model.
    I do have something on my dashboard that looks like a mic and I remember I was told by my dealer that I did have bluetooth, so it would be a bummer to not have it since CA laws will start no cellphone in june 08.
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    That microphone looking thing is probably for the auto-temp controls.

    Let me do a quick bit of research on the bluetooth for yah.

  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Yeah only on the 08s with Navigation and Sirrus.
