Default 24K Check-up

I apologize if this has been discussed a lot, but what should I do for my 24K. Its a 2001 RS2.5, Std.
On of the local Dealers are charging $250 (starting). Which seems to be alot.
I was thinking I would:

Rotate Tires
Change Oil
Clean K&N
Change plugs (more for the upgrade to NGK's)
Get under and inspect all boots
Inspect Brake pads

Is there anything I am missing?

I would rather spend $250 on a good jack and solid set of stands and start working on my own car.

The plugs only get changed at 48kms....

You could clean your brakes,
-grease the sliders,
-apply rustcheck to the door hindges, battery terminal, ground
-other stuff can be done.....

I went to Lachute and it cost me under $100 including taxes for the 24k service....

$100 including taxes...wow, that's a big price difference from what you get from the Ottawa dealers.

I wonder if the $100 service applies to WRXs. If it does, then I might want a road trip up to Lachute in the near future...

Lachute is the place to go. I prefer to take my business as far away from the locals as possible. Them taking me for a moron when I bent a rim and trying to convince me that I needed a new hub and bearing doesn't help.

Lachute will actually do more to your car for less money. They do stuff like glass beading the break sliders so they don't seize up (known problem) and oil your long bolts in the rear in case they ever need to be taken out so a cutting torch isn't needed.

Just call ahead and set up a time before you go. They are much better but I find they do take a little longer than other guys. Just get someone to show you the candy shop
