Washed my WRX and did some minor maintenance on the car. I noticed some very minor but noticeable orange discoloration on the truck drain holes which could be interpreted as rust.. not certain so applied some Fluid Film to the opening to see if that helps.

I hate road salt.

Took her to get pizza when I realized the driver side front window has a ton of bubbles in the tint up high. Time to take her back to get it fixed.

From the weekend: Installed a Panavise phone mount in my STI along with a Scosche Magic Mount XL attachment. Very happy with this; mount is rock solid and the XL magnets are super strong; the phone isn't budging once it's on.

Wash/waxed both subies and polished out some surface scratches & blemishes.

Redid my front springs on my STI for the third time in a week to try to figure out why the ride height is uneven; turns out this is a known problem with STIs that I'd never heard about before. Oh well I'm a pro at replacing springs now. Got it aligned afterwards (only the left toe was out of spec).

Installed the Supertones.

I found out that all of the" 2015+ WRX STI " installation videos are not completely applicable to the 2019 STI.


The lessons learned:

1) videos show the factory horn harness to be tapped into is located in front of the car. I found a horn there, but its connector was a single female spade! The solution is to tap into the horn harness that is located on the passenger side of the vehicle.

2) the male spade connector preinstalled on the aftermarket horn installation wiring harness (I got a Chinese one from Amazon) is too large to fit into the factory horn harness located on the passenger side. The solution was to cut the installation harness spades off and use a modified "U" style connector. A single prong fit perfectly into the factory horn harness.

No other surprises.

^ I think my 19 WRX was the same way too. When I placed order for my Supertones I forgot to order the p-n-p harness so just made my own using standard spade connectors.

Honestly those pre-made harnesses are a waste of money if you already have wires and connectors at home. They are super easy to make.

It's about value; if this harness falls apart anytime soon I can repair or just create my own as well. The harness was like $8 and totally worth not having to spend time creating my own.

Hope it doesn’t fail because that’s a pita to have to redo for $8!!

Had a new tire installed after a large screw made its way into the sidewall. Had a patch in there while waiting and got almost 1k miles down with a slow leak.

Got my second alignment in a week and the car still pulls right. At least my newly recharged A/C is keeping me cool!

This one isn't what I did to my Subie today - it's what I didn't do to it. We're still on our road trip, so after getting gas at a station I probably won't ever pass again in my life I forgot to turn the VDC off.

Turning a sharp curve onto the entrance ramp and looking to start my acceleration in 2nd headed for 70+ mph traffic while turning . . . I might as well have been in 6th at 800 rpm. Nobody home in the engine room. I'd had a similar experience very early on in our 2010 LGT, but this time it felt like I was in for engine troubles 1500 miles from home instead of 10. Took 20 miles to realize what I hadn't done.

Had slightly used RCE yellow springs sitting in my garage for over a year. Finally installed them the other day and I'm loving my car again. Huge improvement during faster speed turns and the drop is perfect.

I wanted to pick up a set of these for the time being until I decide on coilover which will prob be 6+ months out. Only wanted a smaller drop and the 3/4 inch is perfect.

One thing to note is that the WRX rides about 10mm taller than the STI (I own both and measured them side by side after noticing the differences in wheel gap), so if you want only a mild drop you may want to go with the regular guy (black) springs on the STI.

For me nothing different.. enjoyed my commute to and from work in my WRX.

Drove my STI this morning for a nice drive. There was this slow MDX driving in front of me going 50mph in a 55mph rural road and was about to pass him, but I always think there is a reason for things to happen (like maybe a cop on the other side of the hill) so I backed off 4-5 car lengths and just sat back and relaxed.. then moments later I saw a golf ball bounce in front of me between the MDX and my STI.

Went and helped a buddy of mine to solve some DAM issue and finally got to see and hear the Expreme Ti in person. It looks phenomenal but I'm scared it would be too quiet for me. Currently running Cobb DP and ETS Extreme Catback.... Hmm...
