Default 48k km service notes

Just posting this 'cause I need a break at work, yo... Got my 48k km major service done at Specialty yesterday. Got the free loaner Forester. That thing needs an anti-lift kit pronto, but it hauls pretty good. Got some free brand spankin' new posters.

4L of synthetic gear oil for the front, rear diffs and tranny, new NGK copper plugs, DOT4 fluid, flushed the radiator juice, new fuel and air filter, and some other misc. stuff. Damn, the synthetic is expensive though.

With the synthetic, The shifting is a lot more enjoyable now. Before I was some problems up/downshifting. Now it takes less efford to shift. After 2.5 years and 48k km's, I still got over 75% on the original oem brake pads. With the new air filter, I think I can tell it's breathing a lot better, and probably the clean fuel filter has probably helped making the car drive smoother because of the uninterrupted fuel delivery (not being clogged). Brake pedal seems firm enough after the brakes were bled, and nothing new to report with the radiator.

And now for some reason, the stock exhaust burbles a lot more after I get off the gas and the rpm's drop, hehe.

All in all, good prompt service and they did it all right. Hand torqued my lugs, but they washed my car when I told them not to, haha... but that's cool.

Yeah, it was all around $600, but I didn't get my oil changed since I did it last week.

No grinding at all. I can just feel the gears more when shifting, and at the same time it's smoother. I believe it's the same 75 weight, but Penzoil synthetic. Wouldn't of been my first brand choice but it does the trick.

I think I need to do an ECU reset though...

oh...way less than AT....

AT takes 5.7L or sth....crazy....hehe

nope....should be MTL from factory or redline....

yet MTL weight close to 10W30....u can use 5W30 for better cold temp or sth but i think the redline doesn't help me a whole lot....haha....

i do think when i mixed 1/2L of ATF helps....but i only used for 1 week and i changed to Redline....
