    I need to drive more!

    Meant to type "drive"...

    I guess it's a good thing but my car will be hitting 4 years and i will be under 30k miles. A 1 year short tour to Korea and i will be deploying this week so there goes another 6 months of no driving. I am wondering if i can convince my wife to let me get the 2014 =). Honestly i think i will stick with my 09' I have had zero problems and i know the exact places to punch when there rattle goblins start acting up. Other than some small dents from a hail storm while i was in Korea everything looks great, just need a new intercooler, to many smashed fins. looking forward to a 30K service when i get back.

    Ahh you have no need for a new intercooler. Just get in there with a small flathead screw driver and bend the fins back.

    I heard that this company, Process West, makes intercoolers with stronger fins, you should let her know so she can help you pick out a new one that this won't happen to again...

    Your brake pads have worn. Next time you rotate the wheels have a look at them and make sure you look at the inner pads, not just the outers.

    I can't imagine how much leaks out already. It just doesn't seem like the way they clamped the ends down can be very efficient.

    Does that come from a modified WRX? the blown IC?

    So in about 15 years you will have about as many miles on your car as my 2011 currently has.
