Welcome!

STAY AWAY FROM REGULAR FUEL! Premium only
unfortunately I don't have the best knowledge about parts but I'm sure you will get excellent help about parts on these forums.
One more thing Ive notice Subaru owners are the nicest people for car groups so don't be surprised if someone waves.

Just like any car maintenance first then performance. Major services at 30,60,90 and the big one at 105k. I find them super easy to work on. If any questions this place is a great place to start. Welcome

Timing belt and while your in there mine as well do tensioner, and water-pump. Gates makes a kit that has all the pulleys as well if you wanna really go wild and replace literlly everything while you have it apart if taken to shop your looking at right around 1000. If done your self looking at I'll say 300 with parts .

Add a thermostat to that 105K Maint schedule.

And cooling system service. Pretty much a good time to change every single fluid you can think of with this service. And plugs
