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:

Boring day....drove to work...

...Light bar, sport grill, tint, and maybe some 2000 Impreza RS wheels in the near future if I can find them).
Went to my local Subie dealer for an oil change (I am not mechanically inclined to do my own). Ended up costing $100 because the previous owner never changed the cabin air was black as night.....disgusting...

Drove to work and then to band rehearsal later!
Good timing for pollen/allergy season! =)

My thoughts exactly!
Got a call from Annapolis Subaru saying my parts were in! Paid and shipped!

-Sports Grill

-Rear Bumper Cover

-Fog Light Switch (for impending Hella 500FF install)
Received my parts from Annapolis Subaru...the day after I ordered them! GO FEDEX! I live in Jersey...those parts travelled hard last night! Ha!

Drove with the windows down blasting Cage The Elephant.
Hit a construction cone doing 60mph last night....messed up the plastic skid plate....cursed a know..the usual...
Bought a new front skid-plate, wiper blades, and for some reason one of those severe weather companions...I really don't know why.
washed all the damn pollen's getting a little ridiculous!
Where did you get the sticker from? I ordered a bunch of stuff from them on April 12th and have yet to receive any of it... Looks nice though!
Someone point me in the direction of these stickers please!
Took Beatrice in for an oil change.....came out paying for a 7.5K service that I forgot I was due for....

...also had a new front under-shield put on due to a construction cone randomly in my lane a few weeks back..
Had my Pioneer 3100DVD outfitted with the Bluetooth module. IT ROCKS!

It worked seamlessly with the Sprint EVO 4G I had for a few days...ended up returning it because it was just WAY to big and I couldnt get used to Android!

Had some initial problems pairing it with my Blackberry Bold 9650, but got it to work. The only thing I have to figure out is loading the contacts onto the stereo!
Looked at it in disgust.....shes filthy!!!
Scheduled my 30,000 checkup!
Had a Viper 5501 starter installed! The remote is a little big but I'm very happy with the install!
Another good day for my car! Washing her all weather mats because they are filthy...

Then going to get some new tires! Riken HR's to be exact...I have been hearing really good stuff about them!
Today was a big shopping day of my 06!

Ordered a Rally Innovations Light bar, Hella 500 driving and fog kits, and two OEM fog light switches to hook them up too if I can figure out how to do that!

Subtle Solutions spacer lift and new Pioneer head unit are next!
Vehicle Car Electronics Multimedia Vehicle audio

Installed a Pioneer AVH-X5500BHS. My old Pioneer was having a problem keeping my phone connected for hands free calling! Better safe than sorry!
