Well, automatics are controlled by a TCU (transmission control unit) and some parts of the ECU. Since it's an electronically controlled transmission, you would most likely have issues with the...

Easier (and a little less messy) to just pull the lower radiator hose and let it drain from there.

If someone driving around at night can't distinguish their normal headlamps from the DRL's (especially when some cars' dashboards aren't even lit up when the DRL's are on), then a light on the dash...

Ask me how many times I've ripped off my mud flaps (both stock and aftermarket). This is why I don't run them anymore. On my 04 model, anytime they would get ripped off, they would rip a part of the...

I'm with you on this, I think that body kit looks freaking horrid. It takes away from the car, not adds to it. It shouts "Look at me, I'm a tacky stick-on part!". But that's just my opinion, other...

Yep, BRZ has me at 100% as well. The XV around 80% and the 2015 Outback 3.6R at 70% I'd say. Once I drove the BRZ on a twisty road, all I do is lust after it now.

BRZ is lighter, therefore it will roll less in the corners because it doesn't have the extra several hundred pounds to shift direction. The WRX may have been equipped with extra firm suspension, or...

The 2.5 is less powerful than the 2.0. The BRZ has 200hp. The 2.5 is 178hp. It's also a larger engine, which means it's heavier, which would upset the handling. The reason it doesn't have the turbo...

You guys need an indicator to know when your headlamps are on? Seriously?

Does it really take that much more effort to look at the turn signal stalk versus looking down at the gauges? I don't see...

Does the "park lock" engage? Meaning, if the car is in park, does it allow you to shift to reverse or drive without pushing in the brake pedal?

I'm thinking this is something to do with the...

Burning only a quart every 1000 miles on an engine with 437,000+ miles on it? That's pretty damn good in my book.

The upside to hooning about off road is that you have no cops, no tickets, no points. Finding a familiar off road trail that has just been dumped on by 8 inches of snow is hoon-central for me. I get...

You can lift the car in different ways, but I recommend (as long as your struts and springs are in good shape) a simple 2" strut lift with the trailing arm spacers.

This will maintain the same...
