Hey Jive, you'll be happy to know that I actually used my tripod for the interior pics! I didn't have a lot of room in the warehouse with the doors open on the BRZ... I need to take pictures outside where there's more like and room. It's cold right now, though. Summer needs to arrive.

I have to say, that trim in a BRZ is way less annoying than on the FRS. Looks pretty good, even! Drift knob fits well.

Thinking about getting a set of those shoulder pads. My seatbelt likes to rub my neck. Do you like the ones you got? If so...link? I see lots on ebay, but no idea how crappy they are.

I love mine. Any of them on eBay are legit. They're all going to be from Hong Kong. The only thing I'd like more would be if they were cherry blossom red instead of pink.

I do like that the red is on the upper and lower parts of the wheels instead of the sides, but I hate that it says "TOM'S". The guys on FT86 suggested having JPM redo my steering wheel for about $500 since they already have the matching red leather. Cheaper than buying the $800 steering wheel, I guess, but then I'd be without a steering wheel...

Is there not a GT86 spec that has red steering wheel inserts? Granted it won't be flat bottom, but it might be cheaper if it's an already existing production item.

I want JPM headliner, leather boots, Alcantara hood...just JPM my whole car.

Please expound on what you mean by "steering wheel inserts"?

OE: Yes, that GT-86 steering wheel costs like $800 on its own (doesn't include the center). Or I'm told about $500 just to have my own steering wheel wrapped to look like that.

Jive: That's not even chrome, son. It's just silver pieces. You so scurred.

Davin helped me put in my rear passenger armrest yesterday!

I know. It was one of those purchases where I was thinking, "My God, this will probably be the most under-utilized purchase ever, but DAMN will it complete the interior!" I didn't even know what to call it until last week when I saw that it was called the "rear passenger armrest". I was calling it the "rear leather seat between" since I never thought of passengers being back there, especially ones with arms that would need resting...

I just need an oil change and tires changed over and I'm good to go. Well, and to be done with being sick, but I'm at the very tail end of that.

Do you have the dealership do your oil changes? If you do them yourself, I highly recommend a Fumoto valve! I think I'll get one before my last free oil change at the dealer and tell them to put that on after they drain it. That way my first oil change on this car can be nice and clean. The top mounted filter makes me happy.

I have a local shop (Element Automotive) service my ride. Weeks ago I scheduled to have everything done next week. I'm getting anxious, but I think next week was a good guess because it snowed today, but now it's raining. This weather be crap.

I've never heard anything bad about those valves, except for the 2012 Impreza guys were getting the wrong sizes for a while at first. haha

If you get the version with the short nipple it JUST barely pokes past the skid plate. Like...BARELY. Enough for my OCD ass to not want to put it on; I can send you mine if you like.

Fresh detail!

Question:

Should I buy just regular little bottles of octane booster or go straight up Torco? I've decided to follow multiple points of advice and not chance letting straight 87 Octane flow through my engine when I go through the Yukon Territory.

Also I'm not sure of the math for this stuff. If the car is recommended 91 Octane, how much octane boost/Torco would I want to add to 87 Octane to make it as equivalent as possible? When we found some for the Forester XT back in 2009 there were 3 bottles. I pretty much used a whole bottle at each fill up and then we finally got to 90 Octane in Tok, I believe.

Torco. There's a scale on the bottle. There's 91 in Whitehorse and other major cities along the highway. 94 in some places even.
