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.

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:

Dynamatted doors and installed new speakers

Yesterday I installed Polk Audio dB 651s in the front and rear doors. I also put Dynamat in the doors while I had the panels off. From what I've heard so far, it's a good improvement.
Installed front license plate bracket, so license plate will stop rubbing against front bumper.
Oil (Pennzoil Platinum 5W30) & Subaru filter, installed a Fumoto F-105 quick drain valve. No more F#@%(ng crush washers or splashed oil -WOOT!
Did the same thing, well except for the oil (I used Castrol). Looking forward to the next oil change with the valve...
Installed Rally Armor mud flaps and installed the footwell illumination kit.
