    Changing your pads require little to no work. There is like 2 bolts and the pads just pop out. When the pistons get stuck I just push them against the rotor and they pop back on. Buy hawk pads they come with grease and proper break in instructions.

    I'm just saying....Considering the initial beatdown you received, you should probably make a conscious effort to not make yourself sound like a spoiled brat moving forward.

    And people who are focusing on this issue need to themselves move forward.

    This is childish.

    Aw, thanks. When you're 38 years young, being called childish is a compliment.

    Sorry. I was a little harsh. I have a case of the Mondays, and repeatedly hearing how your dad's connections seem to bail you out of the abuse you give your car irritates me. I'm just being honest.

    I understand. I was abusing my car, I can admit that, but I have honestly and truly since relaxed. I respect what I was given and realize now how hard someone has to work for such nice items like this. I respect that I was lucky enough to be able to get a new car at 17. I understand all that now, and I an admit I did not before. I since changed and I'm now caring for my car a bunch better then I have been. I will not lie and say that I don't rev out 2nd gear or 3rd gear while getting on the parkway every now and then. But I truly have been treating my car a lot better and drive at acceptable speeds and in an acceptable manor now. I'm sorry that my past posts set a horrifying example of myself, but I'm really trying to change that and make everyone realize, that I'm really just a good kid, that wants to get into the whole car thing young and learn what I can, so that when I'm older I can hopefully be as knowledgeable as you guys. No beef between us man, I sure don't want you to have the idea that I'm a spoiled piece of crap, but please try and forget about my past posts and look at me with an open mind, and hopefully you won't have any grudges against me in the future, because I truly want to be a good member of the Subaru community, and want to own many of these cars in the future and frequent this forum for years to come.

    ^ beating a dead horse ^

    It happens, espacially here, where everyone has an opinion or (worse) just accepts pre-made opinions. I'm old enough to know better, just honest enough to admit "have toy - will play" also applies to me... I'll probably get flamed for saying it, but hey, So what?!
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?
