So, I am going to install both the temp sensor and the thermostat and hope that the problems will be fixed Then I need to replace the plug wires as they haven't been changed in awhile... Next thing is to get the right front axle to pop out of the hub so I can replace the out side axle boot as it has a tear in it. So yeah, lots to do in the next week!
It's what did you do to your subie, not what are you planning on doing.

http://www.mycarworx.com/store/Impre...entVisors.html or through amazon (which is the same product and company)

just 3m tape but it works. i couldn't justify spending $200+ on a set of jdm visors.

what do you guys think? yay or nay?

So I am curious as to whether this cuts down on noise let in from the windows. I have been noticing a little more road noise then normal and I know Subarus frame less windows don't always seal the best. Wondering if this would be a solution to the problem.

To be honest, with the visors on, I hear more wind noise whistling/hissing near the visors/windows then before without them. Its a tad annoying but only noticeable when music isnt on or when surrounding is super quiet. I dont mind though as it provides more function as window visors, especially since its raining a lot again and more often then not, it'll serve its purpose.

maybe if i bought the jdm visors with the actual clips, it might make a difference in preventing wind noise but these cheap ones has its pros/cons.

Ok then. That is the exact opposite of what I was assuming so I'm glad I asked before I ran out and bought a set. Thanks.

+1 on window visors i had on my LGT... Had them on my old legacy and actually made wind noise worse on like on the freeway cruising. Was pretty annoying!

Just finished up of 4 hours of installing, adjusting and setting my coilovers to perfect ride conditions! Alignment tomorrow!
AND then in NEED of a job driving around!

You forgot the 3rd brake light!

I have been on the fence about doing this or not, I have the paint but I am scared what they will look like down the road. Did you clear coat them or sand?
