Hahaha his Instagram bustinjieberr or something like that. He's a legit photographer though, as young as he looks.

Theoutbackdream- They are forcewerkz sideskirt extensions. I think they can look good, but I'm
debating whether to get the oem Subaru sideskirts in addition lol

Carfax doesn't report anything except standard maintenance ... it would report a change like that, unless it got done outside the dealership, right? Two/three owners total, and the last one only had it for 10 months; person before that kept it for 11 months, probably after buying out their three-year lease. While that isn't super reassuring ... I was *hoping someone decided they just didn't like manual (or something trivial).

I'll def. ask them to look at the exhaust. Would that cause the low-end fuel economy, just so I understand?

Any other ideas for what could be happening, or seconds on the exhaust possibility, would be appreciated. I find it can be helpful to go into the dealer with a few ideas ... thanks!
I have no idea. Without hearing it myself, it's really impossible to say. Wouldn't think a failing exhaust would hurt mpg much at all unless the manifolds were falling off. Maybe someoine else can chime in.

I wonder if you have a brake caliper dragging or something. I had a '95 200SX SE-R once that constantly dragged it's pads on the rotors and got bad fuel economy and sounded like it was running a little hard. It was my wife's car actually, and she didn't notice, but I would drive it and I knew something was up. After that was fixed, it felt and sounded like a different car and MPGs improved. That probably isn't your problem but who knows.

Ha, I just found an old pic of that car. Fun little car it was..

How do you plan on mounting them without the OEM sideskirts? I've been thinking about doing the same.

Not sure tbh. Probably just drill into the frame and spray done primer or rust inhibitor and bolt it in. That's why I'm holding off for a while since I've always wanted the oem sideskirts as well.

Gotcha. And you bought them right from the forcewerkz site? Or somewhere else?

I bought them from a member on the classifieds for less than half the price of brand new

I believe theirs a group buy for them right now for $225 shipped from Jon Motoring or something like that.

29.4/29.7 mpg.... You drive a lot of highway? I've been struggling to keep it above 25 lol.

Maybe the WRX quadtip, 17s, 225s... I would assume being lowered would improve drag coefficient though?

I drive almost exclusively highway. Don't trust the gauge though my actuall is usually around 28mpg. Also If I ever do a pull I get up to the speed limit through 1st, 2nd, and sometimes third then straight to 5th to avoid most of the gas guzzling gears.

Lucky you.

So like 33ish 1st, 60ish 2nd, 70ish 3rd, then skip to 5th?

33ish is seems a bit early for me in first maybe 25ish 1st, 45/50ish 2nd, 65/70ish 3rd then skip to 5th. If I'm really in the gas saving mood, maybe a pull to 45 then up to 5th.

That first shot looks great! Makes your paint almost look like it has a matte finish

Just waiting to take it to a shop that my insurance would approve lol. Only thing I'm worried about is the shop not matching the paint right.

WTF man that is such BS. If I caught someone doing that I would shoot them in the face with my AK repeatedly, and ask questions later.

It looks like that trend I saw on the news "axing" a car because the losers who do it cannot afford such things so they take it out on hard working people's possessions.

What a bunch of cowards. And I would shoot them.

Ohhhh man I'm with you! Someone turned into my sportbike while I'm going 50mph so lucky in 3 months time will be healed. But I've never touched a cig never took a hit of the j finished school to be a police so morally I'm almost perfect. But after the pain I put up with daily I've considered ending another's life. And even damaging another's property is enough to make a normal person just snap.

But even better idea if ya catch them is to sue them till their stripped of every asset but the clothes on their back.
