    General Maintenance?

    any general maintenance i should be doing regularly other than oil changes?

    i have heard of some sort of anti-rust undercarriage cleaning from the owners manual, does a wrx need to have a frequent tune up to help it run?

    tell me what you all do to keep your ride nice, fresh, and strong.

    If you do not have an owner's manual, get one and follow it to the letter.

    What anyone or everyone does only matters if it happens to agree with the owner's manual.

    Prefer authentic parts whenever/wherever possible.

    I think he meant oddball stuff like engine bay cleaning and such - they not quite REQUIRED stuff.

    "The spark plugs should be replaced according to the maintenance schedule in the 'Warranty and Maintenance Booklet'".

    I do not have that booklet so does anyone know how frequently the spark plugs have to be replaced ?

    Here it took me 30 seconds to search in Google. Get used to researching you will be doing a lot of it.
