It's an AA issue and is fixed in the beta version of the app.

Thanks. I'll try and go hunt that down.

Is it AA beta or Google maps beta that fixes it?

AA I believe. I researched the issue when I had it and just decided to wait till it updates itself

I couldn't find a beta program for AA but did find one for Maps.

UHP all seasons under perform in the cold compared to any winter tire, and under perform compared to any max performance summer tire in the warm. By performance I mean braking capability especially in the wet.

A/S's are compromise tires at best. If you've got a standard grocery getter, it's fine. But a performance car really does need the best gripping tires for your budget for the conditions. So you can't afford two sets of wheels and tires, you're going to be spending a good deal on the best all out A/S's out there.

I'd recommend Michelin A/S3+'s. But I hope you don't get more than very light snow.
I probably should have worded it as "trade off" instead - but you get what I mean - spend a bit more and invest a bit more effort and get more performance year-round as a result.

I ran the A/S 3+...great tire, but in regards to snow, I was most comfortable using it to drive home once the snow started and not using it in anything other than the lightest of accumulation (mind you, it was on a RWD BRZ...but even on a WRX there would still be similar concerns in regards to stopping.) This time around, partly based on all of the feedback here, I'm running all-weather Nokians for my winter tires and plan to keep using summer tires on my fun car in the warmer months.

Fair point...that is of slightly greater significance.

That's a decent setup. Nokians are known for being worth the small fortune that they cost. We've got winter Nokians on the outback (bought in July. The previous owner used them as year-round tires) and they work well.

Happened to me at least 2x.

Anyone know whether the steering column plastic is just a snap together or not? I couldn't find a screw holding the top and bottom halves together.

I ask because I was cleaning my car today and figured out where the rattle was coming from inside the steering column cover.

I have a 2018 STI with very low miles, both the glove compartment and dash have a decent rattle that drives me nuts. I sometimes drive with the glove compartment open just so it's quiet.

In other cars I have had a latch adjustment does the trick. Maybe two screws....

Pop off 2 clips just under the gauge cluster under the cloth-like shroud, take off the steering wheel (the hardest part... lots of youtube guides for this), then remove the two screws that are now visible with the steering wheel off. If you have push button start, you have to pop off the cover blank where the key cylinder would be... then separate the top and bottom halves of the steering column cover.

Thanks, that makes sense. I wonder if I can crack open the halves partially to get a peak inside without removing the steering wheel. I’ve removed steering wheels on past cars so not a big deal but rather not mess with the SRS if I don’t have to..

I think maybe the wiper/turn signal stalk module might be making the noise where it attaches to the steering assembly. Will have to see if I can mute the noise while holding it down tomorrow while going over the same rough roads. Only makes the noise when the plastic is cold though.

No problem I don't think you'll be able to separate that part you want to look at without taking off the steering wheel, though. The 2 screws are right by the stalks just behind the steering wheel so its pretty secure right at that area. I was looking at that area this morning before leaving for work and no matter how I rotate the steering wheel, I can't get a clear shot at those screws. Good luck though.

My steering column was making a noise with it out all the way, pushed it in just a tad and the noise went away...

Huh! Thanks, I will try this tomorrow. I can't remember if I had mine telescoped all the way out but I will push it in a bit.

My steering wheel was only telescoped about half way, but pushed it in another 10mm. It was kind of warmish this am at 33F so not sure if the setting change helped or if the temp was just too warm but no rattling.

I posted a solution to this issue on page 3, here's what I did to completely solve the issue. Granted, this was a week and half ago, it may be fixed in a normal release by now.

""For those of you struggling with Android Auto issues like I was, specifically with the volume control being stuck on "maps" when you plug your phone in / volume in rear speakers only, there's a beta update for Google Play Services that appears to fix the issue. You'll have to go into Settings > Apps > Google Play Services > More info, that takes you to the play store where you can opt-in for beta testing, then you'll receive the update to version 14.5.75.

Hope this helps others out there that were extremely frustrated with AA not working correctly.""

Contemplating trading my 2013 wrx limited in for a 2019 STi... should I reconsider?

Background - havenít modified my current wrx but have the stage 2 parts lying around I never installed. Do not plan to mod the car but want a fun car to drive around.

STI is definitely fun to drive and probably more so on the 19ís. Do it!
