Nope, it's the green stuff.

Yup. Pull a drain plug on the rear diff and replace when done draining. Remove fill plug and use a suction gun to fill rear diff. Tranny just buy the socket I think a t-60 Torx but not sure. Drain trans then fill at the dip stick.

You can buy a suction gun for 10-15 bucks and a quart of Amsoil for 10. Or I suppose you can pay the dealer 1hr labor plus cost of oil to do it. Come on man. Do you wanna make excuses or grab the bull by the horns and face **** it.

We all know Subarus here, lol.

I wouldn't buy the limited. Either get the STi, or wait until you find one. You'll hate yourself if you get something you're not in love with.... unless you can get it for like 5k, lol

I've got some time to ponder this. I'm contemplating getting an Ap V2 for the Sti. So do I get an ap and run the ots map for a while then get a pro tune later in the year. That way I can learn to log, clear codes, etc. or save the money from the Ap and just go straight to the pro tune? If so I don't have a lap top or wideband so I would be looking for someone that does pro tuning through open source. It would be nice to drive somewhere and get it done and be done with it. Any recommendations ?

Pro tune via Tactrix. AP is expensive and loses it's worth if you buy a pro tune. Buy the Tactrix and pay for the pro tune with the same amount of money you'd spend on the AP.

I'm looking for a competent tuner too. Aron recommended Clark Turner, but he only tunes via AP.

Levon: I don't know what to tell you man. I'd be up for coming up to give you a second set of eyes and brain if you want? I'm free tomorrow if that works?

Good time being that it's winter though. If you are not greedy with how much you can get from it you can unload it pretty quickly.

I don't think I'm being greedy. I'm asking 13,900 OBo. I'm not looking to give it away either. Other than some light scratches and stone chips it's really clean and needs nothing.

Blue book is over 14k. What do u all think?
