    Spent some time with the STi today

    Put it up on the lift today to do some product test fitment


    After that it was time for a wash. Its been raining the last few days and the car got quite dirty! We got our favorite SONAX cleaning products and went to town.

    This is the effect of the SONAX wheel cleaner, it turns red after a few minutes as it begins working away at the brake dust. Quick scrub with a soft brush and the wheels are as good as new.


    After that finished off by doing a quick wax on the car using the Sonax High Speed wax and the car is better then new

    Looking good... I sat in one recently and I like it! I will wait for the update look in a few years though. I too sat in the drivers seat and felt that the seats were horrible and I didnt even drive it. I think the 3rd gen WRX seats are the best thus far. Honestly...it doesnt seem to hug your ribs and shoulders if you were planning on taking it for a good canyon run/drive etc

    Sorry for lack of updates recently. The STi has 850miles on it, and I am trying to break it in ASAP! Its so close to being broken that its driving me crazy.
    However we have some testing lined up as soon as we can start driving the car hard.

    850...1000...not that much difference. You're practically there anyway

    The Sti has just been itching to be broken in.. well okay that’s not true, but we have been itching to get the STi all broken in. We just want to be able to go have some real fun with it, so we are excited to say that it is 100% broken in, and the first order of business is an oil change, so let’s get started.

    Tools needed:
    17mm wrench
    12mm socket
    Flat head screwdriver for plastic clips
    Oil Filter Wrench (why are these factory filters on so tight!?)
    Clean Funnel
    A few rags or paper towels


    What we used:
    4.5 Quarts of Penrite Racing 5W30 oil
    Prova Oil Filter
    Dimple Magnetic Drain Plug M20X1.5X14
    Note* if re-using your factory drain plug, make sure to pick up a new crush gasket for it




    First thing we like to do is remove the oil fill cap, it seems to make draining the oil quicker and also less messy. Once done, get under your car, as we will have to remove the factory under panel. There are 6 plastic push clips total (3 on each upper side of the panel), 2 large clips, and 3 x 12mm bolts holding on the under panel.





    You can see the 3 side panel clips here. Remember there are 3 on each side.





    And the large clips on the rear of the panel will pull out.





    With the under panel off, we now have access to the oil filter, and this will also make draining the oil easier as well. Use your 17mm wrench to break the oil drain plug loose, and make sure to place your oil catch pan under the drain plug and let er’ loose.






    Once the oil is drained, insert the drain plug back in and torque to spec, which should be 33 ft-Lb’s.





    Now we can move onto the oil filter. The stock filter was on incredibly tight, so we had to use an oil filter wrench to remove it.





    With the filter off, we like to clean up any residual oil left on the bottom of the oil cooler.





    Fill the new filter with oil, and use the oil to lube up the O-ring before installation.





    Install the new oil filter, Subaru lists the torque at 10.7 ft-lbs, but we usually just go hand tight plus about of a turn extra.





    Reinstall the under panel in reverse order. It may be helpful to have a buddy to help you hold the panel up while you get the first few bolts or clips in.

    Now use your funnel and put in the rest of the 4.5 Quarts. Double check the dipstick to make sure oil is showing, put on the oil cap, and start the car. Look for the oil light and make sure it turns off, let the car idle while you visibly check for any leaks. If no leaks present, shut off the car and let it sit for a minute, check the oil dip stick and add any oil if needed.




    If everything looks good, give yourself a huge high five and make sure you do a victory dance as you just successfully did your own first oil change on your 2015 STi.

    Last and most important step, go for a drive and enjoy your car!

    Thanks,
    Rick
