I'm not thousands in debt for nothing! I just hope there's not too much misinformation in between the smart mother effers' posts. There's a lot of it on the internet and I see a lot of the old "my uncle's cousin's bloodhound's nephew told me..." crop up here more than I would like. There's a lot of people mistaking generalizations for absolute laws. There's also a lot of high level math and physics that even I balk at when I try and read papers from SAE, etc.

That said, I think we've come to terms with a few simple rules:

1 - The best oil is one that is changed often
2 - Keep it stock or pay to play
3 - Downshift
4 - Ethanol is our friend, but just like people, these cars only like it in moderation
5 - It's just the throw-out bearing

I'd say there's a huge dichotomy in the WRX/STi crowd. If it looks ricey and runs like ****, they probably aren't an engineer/IT professional. That isn't always true, but my engineer friends all have really tastefully modded Subarus. More often than not, they tend to be JDM replica crazies that spend all day looking for the right dome light lenses so they can almost have a real Ver 6 STi to beat off to.
