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:

I put a brand new radiator and battery in it.
Took the WRX rims with the all seasons off the Foz (I'll be painting them black) and put my spare set of 7 spoke aluminum rims with Blizakks on.
It snowed last night.

This weekend the 20 inch STI swaybar with drop mounts etc, and trailer hitch reciever goes on.
I put the 1999 2.5 RS 5 spoke rims on the XT Fozzie.

It was sunny and almost warm, so my 3-1/2 yr old son and I got a big bucket of warm soapy water with a big honking sponge & garden hose and washed down the Foz old skool style.
Nothing. Wife is always stealing it from me!
Same here,my wife is ALWAYS begging to take the XT out on errands (I think she is a turbo boost junkie).

Today I loaded up both 2 dirtbikes (XR400 & XR100) into the 5x8 enclosed trailer and brought them from the shop to the house.

I made a snowman on the hood of the FXT as the rain turned to snow today (May 29th),here in Edmonton Alberta Canada, so here is a couple of of crappy cell phone pic's.
