That helps a little lol. Well I'm sure it will go by fast and the mods will start, and once they start, they just keep rolling.

Yeah, that's always a fun trip. This will be the first time in a long time I won't be needing to swap parts out for my upcoming inspection.

Nice. I really like the yellow fogs on the bug eyes. 08+ not so much. They look good on my girls 02' RS as well.

And where's the pics man! FOL...

That's what I figured too when I finally got an AP. They will claim you were abusive, because everyone goes out and beats the hell out of there car all the time. The car is meant to be driven, IMO

I did the same. I couldn't wait to hit 1000m so I could start modding! I don't drive mine nearly enough to ever get to take advantage of a warranty anyways. I've had my car 11 months and only have 4k lol!

Yeah Dave and I got to talking earlier this week. Discovered we're both trying/running different brands/weights. Figured it be perfect for a little test and info swapping...even though we're running different setups. It'll be good info for all of us though for those with WRX's on pump gas and STI's on e85. I've seen logs on NABISCO but I'd def rather be doing my own for determining a final brand/weight to run permanently in my car.

Yea definitely you guys seem like you have a good handle on the wrx/sti world. Dave's helped me out a lot with different things recently.

Only if you're extending OC's though. If doing every 3-4k breakdown isn't gonna be much of a concern. I change my oil every 3-4k no matter what I'm running or a manufacturer says lol!
