Changed the oil to Rotella T6, got new Yokohama S4 Tires, and buffed and polished all on the Forester XT.

EDIT: Also wetsanded the headlights and put in Silverstar Ultra Bulbs for the headlights and foglights.

Washed it, waxed it, cleaned up the leather inside. Also put on some new grille inserts (OEM) to show off that factory chrome once again. Oh, and drove to Lubbock with 6 5gal gas cans to have some e85 fun for a bit

One of the big things keeping me away from e85 is the fact that I drive out that way all the time and I've never seen a gas station with it outside of a major city. It's really tempting sometimes though.

Thanks and gig em

Picked up an Audison Bit Ten D for the coming sound system upgrade. Found out that the "D" version has several functions that will eliminate time-consuming DIY projects that I was about to start. So, F those projects. Also, had my speaker baffles altered a bit to fit the new speakers.

On that note, I have a few things for sale:
-Focal 165KR component speakers that I just removed (include woofers, tweets, and crossovers)
-Zapco DSP6-SL sound processor with DRC-SL in-dash control panel
-Zapco 350.2 amp
-JL w3v3 sub (available soon)
-Clarion EQS746 (available soon)

PM me if interested.

Upgraded my system to some Hybrid components and a Morel subwoofer. Also replaced my brake light bulbs since one stopped working a few weeks back.

Does anyone know - do I need a working hazard light button to pass inspection? I know they test the blinkers, but do they specifically press the hazard switch?

Good question. I pretty sure you will.

I replaced the stock STi side badges with the super sweet black JDM badges. Getting the stock badge off and the JDM ones on was simple. The tedious part was getting the original adhesive off.

I used 3M adhesive remover, a hair dryer, a dulled xacto and a surgical towel.

Me too. Chrome just doesnt look good on our cars. These were, originally, for a R205 so that's probably why there isn't a WRX version.

Lowered the Lexus with some H&R springs (sits nice and low now!) and ordered jets and a drive belt for the Ruckus. Looking at adding some power and top end to my little friend!
