Regardless of the reason, I would assume that this will cause crazy tire wear on the inside of the rear tires, right?

Dijm8 is an avid form > function guy. Theres plenty of them on these forums.
When the camber is that obvious it looks cheesy, but a ton of people do it so what do I know.

I saw an Impreza with camber like that on Rt 31 in NJ. He had 4 people in the car, the back was loaded full, and it had 2 kayaks on top.

OK, well, that's different from having camber like that when the car is empty.

and yes, needed camber to make them fit inside the guard to keep the po po happy

will be adding bigger rear spacers to get more camber goin on, sitting at -3.27 camber at the moment hopefully get around the -5 -6 with the new spacers

Just called up my local dealer service department to get warranty wiper blade insert replacements. They wont just give them to me, but have to install them because "its warranty work that has to be done by the dealer." For wiper blade inserts.

What's wrong with letting someone fix your car for free?

They tend to muck other things up, like cutting foam bits out of your seat because it was inconvenient to disconnect a wire, or scratch something, or break something, etc...

Just finished reading the final "verdict" report of the 2012 Impreza Sport hatchback (with CVT) in the September 2013 issue of Motor Trend. Very positive report, with really nothing negative to say about the car at all other than that the GPS once made a navigational error.

Hate being at the dealer. I took one day out of my vacation to get a couple TSBs done, literally 3 hours later and they only ended up doing one of them and said another wasnt a problem (seat squeak - and it still is a problem!). Add that to the fact that my car stood outside in front for about 45 mins before I asked what was up. They didnt even bother coming to get me when it was "done". Wasted day

On that note; after seeing the roof of my car at lunchtime today, I was thinking maybe I should plasti dip mine or just leave it dirty. I'm getting tired of these dragonflies taking a dump or laying eggs on my shiny rooftop and hood. It looks like a bunch of tiny yellow eggs. I see them occasionally scrape over a puddle of water so maybe they see the reflection and think my car is water. Whatever it is they leave behind, I have to California dust it off everyday.

Anybody know if these are terds or eggs or do I just sound crazy? lol

Youtube has a plethora of cars with excessive camber... Every vehicle win/fail compilation has at least a couple.
Heres a guy in an STI who's spotted a clown car.
