    Went to do my first oil change today. Bought the oil and filter from my local Subaru dealership. They said I need a crush washer for the oil filter. I got the crush washer but have no idea what to do with it. There doesn't appear to be anywhere it fits and I have never seen a crush washer on...

    I finally got my car yesterday. Good dealer experience overall besides the wait (which isn't their fault really), they did everything I told them to. I've only driven 120 miles so far, but I love the car. I got the WRBlue Limited 6MT. I will be starting a build thread very soon as I have a...

    Noticed a worrisome smell after driving lately. Seeps into cabin and can smell faintly around engine compartment. Smells like burnt oil or exhaust from an old farm truck. Think this is normal?

    So now that there seems to be a few intake systems out what brand seems to have the better set-up? I've been looking at greddy and injen.

    Was told by local Subaru service advisor that first oil change interval was at 10,000Km like most Subaru cars. I see in other forums that some guys are doing their first oilchange at 1000Km and even sooner. What are your thoughts and recommendations ?

    Basically, I am starting to worry about buying the BRZ. I spent all this time researching and confirming this is the car for me and now people are starting to complain about a plethora of things. I mean the reason I went for the Subie is because it has all the grown man niceties. But the gps is...

    Hey all. I did my first oil change today. I only have about 2000 miles on it but I figured I'd do it at my parents house while I had the opportunity because I wanted to replace the drain plug with one of those fumoto qwik valves. Installation of the valve was as easy as putting the original...

    That’s right folks, its official name is the Albino Rhino, and little did we know that the name would actually be very fitting for the little car. After getting a chance to put about 40 miles on the car today I wanted to go over some of my initial impressions as well as the impressions of the...

    We all know that the new AE86 can drift right out of the box without a problem, but no one has done a really extensive test drive for the average Joe. I knew I had to do something different with the new AE86 if I was given the chance, and after Scion answered my cries and loaned me one for a...

    Albino Rhinos first Oil Change Tools needed: 14mm socket or wrench, ramps or jack and stands, oil drain bucket, small funnel, fresh oil, and oil filter. Gloves and shop rags are very nice but not required. Time Required: I would give yourself about 30 minutes to complete the oil change...

    Hi Guys, I am trying to get an idea what type of modifications will void the warranties. I talked to a tech over at Perrin, and he mentioned that an aftermarket exhaust wouldn't void the warranty, but an intake and a crank pulley might.. depending on the warranty. Anyways, I would like to get...

    I just ordered 3 filters from my dealership and I asked if the BRZ shared the filter with any other Subaru models. Rick the parts guy said that it is the same filter as the new Foresters. Interdesting. PN 15208AA130

    I just passed 1500 miles and plan on doing an oil change this weekend. I haven't looked into part numbers but I'm wondering if we can use STI oil filters, if so is it worth it? Do STIs have different/better filters than, say, a standard Impreza or WRX? Also, ordered a qwik valve. I'll do a...

    I know these types of questions pop up all the time, but I haven't seen this one posted yet. The owners manual says to change the oil every 7,500 miles with synthetic (0W-20?). The dealer said to change it after 3,000 miles. Should I change it at 3,000, then at 7,500, and continue at every...

    My engineering friend told me that I should change my oil after 20-40 initial miles on the car to flush out burrs and tiny metal flakes. Is this necessary? what do you think and when will you guys be doing your first oil change??

    I read in one of the FR-S reviews today that Scion/Toyota is including 2 years of free maintenance for an FR-S purchase. Has anyone else heard this? Any ideas if Subaru is doing this as well, or perhaps just a reason to buy the FR-S over the BRZ?
