Not today, but last night on my 2015 WRX I got my windows tinted... 15% all around. Monday I installed OLM HP LED Low Beam Bulbs (6000k), A'PEXi Panel Air Filter & SubiSpeed DRL Harness for Boomerang (C-Light). All at dusk, in the freezing cold with low light. Removing the battery to get to the C-light was a bummer, but luckily (unlike in my previous 2006 Scion tC), I didn't have to reset and reprogram everything.

I noticed this as well on my '15 WRX and Winter Maxx's. Uggh, I want to be back on the stock summer tires or better SOON. But because I like to drive up into the mountains for skiing, I knew I'd need something more substantial than performance winter tires. The trade off is feeling like these tires are going to bounce me into a wall or the moon :/

I wanted the Winter Maxx because I have to make it to work pretty much no matter what's on the ground. It's hit or miss whether we get any substantial snow here. I probably would be happier with the 3d/4d's.

If Ya'll hate the gooey sidewall on winter tires get some runflat winter tires, the added sidewall makes for a better ride.

I've been using blizzak lm25 rft's for 3 winters and I love them.

Got some General G-Max A/S 255/40s put on my stock BBS. Fit like a glove, look great, handle quite well. Unsure why this isn't the stock size on the car!!

Checked the oil this morning and the stick was bone dry. Drove it around the hood for a few minutes, checked still dry. Put a quart of oil in, still dry... 3.5 quarts later the stick wasn't dry. Dad drove it to work and checked it cause he likes driving my car for some reason. It was over filled. Where the **** did the two and a half quarts go for that period of time...

Installed a few things today on my WRB '15 WRX:

- Rally Armor
- OLM Interior LED Lights (dome, map, vanities)
- OLM LED Reverse Lights
- OLM LED Rear Turns
- TapTurn
- OEM Rain Visors

Waiting to install the front OLM LED turns I got once I get Morimoto LED fogs, OLM high and low beams, and the JDM grill.

Installed new front rotors and greased the calipers, hoping to solve the front calipers from sticking sometimes. Didn't work, I guess the next post in this thread will be installed SS brake lines.

What I did today? Marked 1,000 miles on my '15 WRX, purchased on 11/28. I guess that means it's "broken in?" Meh, right?

Purchased mine 12/2 and I'm like 10 miles off of my 1K mark. You guys either have short commutes or just like to have something nice in the garage.

Yes. I have a short 8mi (city) commute to work but I've been finding reasons to take extended detours and joyrides.

Was actually worried it was gonna ruin handling but In my opinion which is worth nothing, I believe it handles as good as stock if not better with the air suspension.

I'm just messing with you. It's far from my cup of tea, but it's your car, do what makes you happy!

My commute ranges. I travel from site to site. Could be 10 miles (round trip) to 60 miles (round trip).

My miles would be lower if I didn't take a trip down to the Tail of the Dragon that put roughly 2,200 miles on her.
