Thought it would be fun to start a thread on everyday things we do here and there to our beloved Subarus. The weather is getting nicer, so I'm sure we will all be outside more tinkering on our cars.
(if this is a repost, please delete it)

Today has been a busy day for me! Got my Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tires in yesterday from Tirerack for the Sti and had them mounted and balanced today by a real cool guy off of Nasioc. If anyone wants his info in the PNW PM me. He runs a legit business out of his home doing tire stuff n such, for a really good deal. But let me tell ya, these tires are STICKY!!! They pick up gravel everywhere but they are SOOOoo nice! It feels like a different car

When I got back from joyriding the STi in it's new tires, I washed the Forester (for the second time this week) and finally got around to hand waxing it. Looks pretty, but boy is there a lot of bumps and bruises on it!

What did you guys do to the subarus today?? :biggrin:

Enjoyed the ride; after being stuck driving a work dodge caravan for 8 hours yesterday the Foz feels pretty good. :biggrin:
Had the front brakes done this morning, Forester is at 72km now and the stock pads were down to 2mm..

My local shop put on Raybestos blue pro-grade pads and rotors, they look good and work well, still smoking from bedding in when I parked it in the driveway. :biggrin:

I debated putting Hawk pads on by from what I hear cold bite can be a bit slow in wet conditions, I wouldn't mind but it's the Babywagon so it needs to stop..
