Today I did my 3000 2nd oil change on my car. Used Rotella T6 and a Subaru Filter. I lost a quart of oil on my last oil change due to a failed K&N filter O-ring.
I was warned, just glad I caught it, couldve been pretty bad.

After the oil change made my way to discount tire to have my rear passenger tire patched, and my winter tires rotated.

then I decided to try out some of my new detailing supplies



Wash



Cleaned



Waxed, sun was pretty much gone, so there is little shine to be seen



also RAIN-X all the windows to assist with keeping them sealed and clean in these winter months

Today, I got in my subaru Rubber Floor Mats,



Please excuse the dirt


Then I debadged the rear of my WRX


Then I was trying to get a coat of wax on my car before we get more snow in chicago tomorrow, and i found out the previous owner of my car got in to some sort of accident on the passenger side of my car.

the fender has a dime size paint chip near the wheel now and the part of the bumper where the inner wheel well connects is cracked away.I also noticed a large amount of touch up paint around that area as well.

RUINED MY ENTIRE NIGHT!!!!

I talked to my paint guy (good friend of mine, owns a body and custom paint shop) and he said the best way to fix it would be to repaint the fender.

Im going to wait until the weather is warmer though because there are some dents i need pdr'd, but i dont want to do it until after the rock salt stops flying into my car from other's tires.

I didnt do anything to my Car today as i am many many states away from my baby. But i did buy some parts for her so when i get back home i can work on her. First i bought some LED's for the cabin. and my Dash. next i bought a new BOV(dont worry its the stock one.)i think mine might be acting up and the price was good. then today i bought a Starter since mine is going out we seem to think. and also i got some Mishimoto Silicone intercooler tubes. as mine are dried out and im scared if i take off my intercooler i might mess one or them all um to do the starter.
