LOL. You know I'm just playin Kirt. It's a very short story. All in all, stay away from Bridgestone tires (all of em except the 760's and that's only if you have NO other choice).
Had my STi tuned and 2 weeks later I plowed into a boulder trying to get the rear end to catch, and when it did.... It was aimed at a boulder on the side of the road. I still miss that car.
The gears? Are a pile of dung in the older wrx's. Never launched only auto-x'd for a couple years. Put a sour taste in my mouth. Search, you will find.
All in all, I've had a drain valve help me out on my oil changes for quite some time like several others on the forum.
