I replaced the old battery with a shiny new Optima Red Top. I didn't know it until I took it out, but the old Subaru battery from the previous owner was from 2009!

I too have it disabled. I guess I need to play with it a little.

Today I installed a lower front spoiler lip, an axle back exhaust and various WRX overlay stickers.

As soon as the freaking salt washes away, thanks to needed rain the next two days, the WRX will get its maiden wash. Thereafter, I'll remove the stock chrome side badges and replace them with black/red WRX front fender badges. I'll then coat the lower side sills with spray on clear protective film, to protect the side sills.

I purchased mud flaps but I'm considering not mounting them if the spray on protective film proves effective.

Cheers/B

The driver's side sunvisor on my brother's ride was starting to hang loose. He asked me for help so just ended up replacing it and now it's back to how it came from the factory. I managed to find the genuine OEM Subaru replacement online for a nice price and it was promptly delivered to my door. Here's a link to the visor https://www.subarupartsdeal.com/part...11fg032jc.html

Not terribly exciting but ordered a Killer B Oil Pan/Baffle/Pick up. I’ll probably powder coat the oil pan for fun.

Today I'm researching a P0037 code hoping I won't need to replace an O2 sensor.

Default Track car one day?

I cursed the day I bought it, but never fail to keep taking off the do-dads and stuff almost every day, to make it lighter, better and how I want it to be.

I took apart the center console and changed the USB/AUX port on my 2015 sti. I might be the only one that seemed to have this problem but the teeth on my usb decided to get all bent and a piece of it came off rendering my ipod useless. Pretty simple fix, also made a video about it if anyone experiences this same issue.
