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:

Installed some shoulder pads and updated the navi to the latest version.
Drove to work, went to the tint shop for an appointment, to the Subaru dealer and back home:biggrin:

Pictures follow later... Foz is at the tintshop right now :biggrin:
Went to the dealer for some touch up paint and hit my 1st 1000km mark.

And replaced a light bulb.... kinda lousy job:icon_frown:
When replacing my lights yesterday i found out that my grille came loose, 3 clips were missing... So i had to buy some new ones today
Finally put the front sway on today. And apparently with more research it's a Whiteline and not a Perrin. =) Car feels quite a bit tighter in steering now. I Liiiike! :biggrin:
Pics, or it didn't happen :icon_wink:
Looking for the best place for my stand-alone navi sys :biggrin:
.... a few minutes ago i ordered some parts @ Jackies :woohoo:
Looked at it and try to decide where i'm gonna put the rally pig decal.... still don't know :icon_redface:
Sticked the rally pig decal on the rear window and put some silicone strip behind the door rubber to reduce the wind noise
Went to a huge carshop where they sell alot off bling that lasts for 3 months... :shake:

Oh well, I will order my replacement filter online.
This morning I used the touch-up paint on a small rust part

And in the afternoon I did something on the noise reduction

All went very well :cool:

Accept for the fact that my face got sunburnt...
