When I had a WRX I used http://www.subarugenuineparts.com/ quite a bit. They are a dealer in WA (Chapman Subaru maybe? I can't remember the name) and have much better prices than local, even after the shipping.

As much as I like to support the local guys, I also vote with my wallet too.

I'm sure I've found something too good to be true. Every other website I find they want $250-300.

The local dealership will match any dealers prices. Just have to print off the parts you want, and bring it into the parts department.

You do know that Continental will price match any quote from another dealer as long as you print it out and the quote includes the shipping right?

Didn't know that. I sold the WRX 4-5 years ago, did they do that then?

Jerry owns the Shell on Debarr/Boniface. He gives a discount if you pay cash.

This is true. It's a good discount. I never have cash, though. But that's my primary station since it's closest to my house.

I always Shell it out. Chevron is secondary. Holiday is neverdary. Costco is decent.

I Typically run Shell or Freddies. Chevron lately has been out of my way when I am close to needing gas.

All shells gas stations give a discount for cash. You can also use your Fred Meyers rewards points at shells for another discount option.

That could be, I don't buy gas very often. I don't believe they offer it for diesel, or at least they don't to me!

I bought ~$4000 of diesel today, paid in cash and I paid pump price. If your wondering, it's for a few pieces of heavy equipment for logging... enough fuel for about a month.

You guys are aware that each octane level of gas in Alaska comes from the same batch. The difference stations simply put their additives in the fuel.

Lol yeah I feel like an ass when i drive it so i tend to only drive durning the day. But is there any way for me to aim it when I buy regular lights today? Would I have to bake the lights and adjust from the inside?

Check your owner's manual. There are typically adjustment screws for both vertical and horizontal movement.
