    You may want to do some maintenance on the braking system. I believe you're low on fluid.

    Congrats man! I'm just over 95K myself and really looking forward to hitting the big 100K mark. Maybe someday I'll get to 200K. I'm sure the Subie can make there without any problem if I take care of her.
    One question for you Timber, "how often do you change your timing belt?" I've been told a lot of different things. My understanding is 105K, but I thought you might have some first hand knowledge.

    timing belt has been done twice on this car... once at 100,000 miles, and again right before vacation, about 198,500...

    EVERYTHING on my car is still original, except exhaust, springs, some body parts (haha), some a/c bits, and a throttle position sensor. (and maintenance items, of course)

    Good to know about the timing belt. I plan on changing mine soon. Did you do the install yourself? Also, did you use the OEM belt or get the STI one?

    At 198,663 you consciously set in motion the plan to have the car turn over 200,000 AND have the odometer read 1337?! (E)leet?! Why didn't I think of that? I just turned 100K. I should have done that!

    OEM, and my brother in law did the work for me. He is a certified mechanic (Suzuki), and that is a bit beyond my scope.
