So my 03 wrx just passed 75k and I'm wondering I should get the 75k service. I know alot of guys are big diy people when it comes to any and all maintenance but my knowledge and skills don't go far beyond oil changing and some engine mod installs.
The 15K service (75K) includes:
fuel system cleaning
air filter replace
top off all fluids
rotate tires and set air pressure
cabin air filter replace
service front and rear brake pads and rotors
check axle boots front and rear
check operation of clutch
inspect steering and suspension systems
I have the following mods on my wrx all of which are roughly 10-12k miles old.
-turbo xs catless bellmouth downpipe
-Invidia N1 race catback
-Turbo xs short ram
-cobb accessport 93 tune
along with upgraded clutch, coilovers, wheels and tires. I have yet to take it to a dealer since I've owned it (just over a year and about 10k miles) and I'm not sure if the previous owner did. So ultimately what I'm asking is, should I take it in to get these things checked out or should I wait until the 105k service? Is all of it necessary or are there a few main things I should get checked out versus having it all done?

-Oil conditioner is just an additive they add in your oil change
-Fuel system cleaner cleans carbon off your upper pistons and they put a bottle in your tank to help clean the injectors. Basically seafoam.
-Air filter is obvious and easy
-Top off fluids is washer solvent, sucking out brake fluid from the resovoir and adding fresh fluid to it. At our dealer we drain the coolant and put in fresh coolant
-Service front and rear pads to me sounds like lubing the slides which isn't a bad thing
-chicking axle boots and clutch operation is self explanatory.
There really isn't much on there that is difficult to do or worth the money you'll pay unless you are unable to do it yourself.

As a dealer tech for 5 years (for toyota) here is what I would recommend.
I guess just trust that the machine is set up to sell you parts you may, or may not, need. Even a trustworthy mechanic only makes money selling you parts you need. The above is my advice to you. Otherwise, just pay for 75k and hope you get what you pay for. I know I always used maintenance list a check sheet, but I cannot say the same for all my coworkers.
G-luck, hope this helps.

At 75k there are no major services. Essentially if you completed the 60k, it would be a tire rotation and oil change at 75k. Next major after 60k is 90k. Check our maintenance page on our website for what we include.
