Canadian subies get the pioneer unit instead of buying oem stuff just get a good pioneer head unit you can add nav to it but I prefer the portable nav units

I think they are a little bit narrower so the washer bottoms out on the wider part before it comes into contact with the new bushing

Oil change, rotated tires today.

I have almost 30k miles and stock tires still plenty of deep tread. I was expecting much worse. I havent heard of anyone actually running them into the ground.


EDIT Does anyone think this looks remotely like our car? lol http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2089085

Minus the 27"+ wheels, missing mirrors (?!?!?wtf), blue tinted windows, sharply curved headlights, zero length rear bumper, enlarged grille, and front bumper vents (all 4 of them), maybe it looks a little bit like it.

"Subaru's own advanced driving-assist EyeSight system is installed along the front edge of the roof. The images the camera takes can be viewed on a monitor in the center of the gauge cluster, positioned for easy visibility. EyeSight is also networked with the latest in collision-prevention technology, underscoring the safety that customers expect from Subaru."

"Dark blue piping and double stitching accent the leather. A "layered" approach to color, with the upper part light platinum and the lower part a shade darker, gives the interior a feeling of spaciousness and sophistication."

"Fin-shaped fog lamps"

I WISH WE HAD THESE THINGS. why can't we have nice things, soa?!

This is What I think ill do. Its the only way to get what I really want. Just sucks about the hole opening being a stupid size. Perhaps the canadian oem radio surround would look better than the scosch one.

Mine shifts forward about 1/4-3/8". The tsb says place a piece of tape in the top rear corner and then roll down the window. If the tape doesn't move from the trim you are good, but chances are it will.

When rolling the window back up, I can watch mine hit the top then rotate back.

The tsb only pertains to the front passenger and none of the others should be affected

Is there one for the rear driver side? I was washing the car today and I was able to move the window up and down, and side to side a half inch each way. The other windows did not do this.

There anyone in the long island NY area that can help me with a few things sometime soon? I'll pay for your gas and pay you a little bit for your time.

-Eyebrow LED lights (I can't reach them)
-Change angle of headlights (If it's even possible)
-LED Tail lights (just install bulbs and resistors).

If you can't help with some of the things i don't mind, even doing one thing is useful.
PM me please!

Exit 25S off of the southern state pkwy, in NY.

Anyone else installed LED tail light bulbs yet?

Not trying to rob flyboy out of a sale but I have one for sale too and will sell at cost plus shipping.

I'm selling mine if anyone is interested.

How much did it cost you? I have an eBay XV front strut tower bar which I plasti dipped black. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Subaru-JAPAN-...item1e74b5799f

Would it be worth it to make the jump to a Perrin? I have no issues or problems with my existing one though.

So i went outside and showed them the window will move forward 1/2". the guy goes and finds the TSB i told them about and comes back and says I will need to order parts. WTF did i waste my time this afternoon? argh!
Sorry what is this TSB you speak off?

Sorry I found the answer now, I was reading all the posts I missed since the last time I posted.

HIDs and halogen reflectors are a bad idea.

Today I took my car for a good spring wash and I realized how much the quality of the paint is poor. After 1 year, 1 winter, and 26 000km (15 000 miles), the front end is disgusting. I previously owned about 15 cars, including several that were not worth $ 500, and none of them had so cheap paint job. I still like my Impreza, but itís with small details such as this one that we see how manufacturers make cars cheaper and cheaper. I believe that we drive future bundle of rust.
Sorry for syntax errors.

I've got over 16.5K miles and don't have those issues....could it be related to the snow/salt on the roads??

I don't think you can change the headlight angle. Unless you have projectors and then you can fiddle with their position to adjust the cutoff.

Unfortunately I also need the links, nuts and bolts, and the end links are ridiculously expensive.
