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:

Busy day with the Foz:
  • Took the kids to daycare (they were mad at me, so they called the Foz "big nose" hoping to make me sad!)
  • Decided to take a day off due to the unusualy nice weather (+15 Celsius with full sun vs. normal of 3 Celciius) which prooved to be an excellent decision
  • Picked up Cambridge audio receiver and sub at repair shop
  • Headed to Lac Phillippe (Gatineau Park) for the last XC ski run of the year + some mud fun
Went to local garage for spring maintenance:

- Summer wheels (Forester Sport STI wheels) installed
- Spring inspection
- AMSOIL SSO 0W30 Oil + filter change
- Swaybar squeeking fixed
- Engine block heater installed (I know, don't ask!!) + coolant fluid replaced

That's it. Great day!!
