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:

Today I installed a new cargo liner in my 2010 limited. It is great, and I'm very surprised how close it matches my platinum leather seats. If you don't have one yet and are interested, go to Also, I'm interested in installing blind spot mirrors if anyone can recommend good ones for heated mirrors. I want to be sure any I purchase will work on heated mirrors. Any suggestions on that subject?

Hey Thomas,
One of the first things I did after buying the Foz was to go to Autozone & buy a cheap set of 2" round parabolic mirrors.
They are mounted on the lower outside corners of the stock mirrors with double sided tape.
I find them indispensable when changing lanes or backing up.
There should be no problems using them on heated mirrors, as the summer ambient temp in North America far excedes what the stock heated mirror can generate.
Thanks, I'll check that out.
Is it safe to install blind spot mirrors on my new X Limited which has heated mirrors? What is the best brand? Has anyone else done this?
