Just out of curiosity, how would you justify your oil changes if you did the work yourself? Just showing some receipts for quarts of oil and filters doesn't mean anything. Nothing says you actually used them.
I'm interested in this because I buy oil by the case and I've got about 3 of them sitting in my garage. Same with filters. I bought a 6-pack months ago. I'm not even sure where the receipts are anymore. But as I said, even if I had the receipts, nothing says I actually DID the oil changes.
Your receipts and your word. Also I tend to save a quart of the batch of the oil in the engine.
Some auto companies will do an oil analysis, but that's a bit rare. Most cars have OLM now. WRX is a throwback, and I love it.
Got a call last night from dealer. They finally got approval from Subaru. Basically getting a whole new engine.
Good deal. Sucks you had to go through the torture.

Finally on my way to go pick up my car!!! Been almost a month!
Can the dealer not actually tell if the ECU has been tuned? I'm having this same issue, however I have a stage 1 tune right now. I plan to revert it back to stock and factory tune before taking it into the dealer and trying to get the rod bearing covered under warranty.
This is caused because of the UEL header and some oil starvation. Piston #2 and 4 basically get the most heat and that isn't good for the bearings. Mine spun at 42,000. At least your baby is back.
If they could tell if the ecu was altered then why did they ask?
