Its a wrx, not a ferrari...

Read the car storage on unibomber's manifesto. It'll tell you what to do.

Required:
1. Top off the tank and add fuel stabilizer. A full tank helps prevent moisture from accumulating. Run the engine so that fuel stabilizer runs through the fuel system to prevent corrosion.
2. Remove the battery and store at room temp. Trickle charge the battery if you can. Periodically starting the car for 15-30 mins to charge the battery is not recommended. The engine does not get hot enough to burn off condensation that builds up when the engine cools down. This causes corrosion of internal engine parts.
3. Change the oil and filter.
4. Don't use the parking brake, the pads could adhere to the rotors.

Optional:
Put the car on jackstands to prevent tire flatspotting. Alternatively, roll the car a few feet periodically.
