Hey.. yeah .. so I am feeling very n00b-like today and I have some questions.
I'm at about 3100 miles now in my 2006 wrx and I want to change the oil. I bought synthetic but now I am reading that I should use regular oil for the first 2-3 oil changes (10k miles).. which will make my dad happy at least. Should I just hang onto the synthetic I have, or should I return it? Does oil go bad sitting in the garage for a year?
On another note..
I can't find what oil filter to buy. The books at the store are out of date and only have the filters for the years up to 2005.
What oil filter do I buy for the wrx? Is there a brand people recommend? Preferrably one I can get most places? I read some complaints about fram filters, but to be honest - I don't race or push my car too hard and they sell them in packs of four at BJs (wholesale) ..
but yes.. oil filter part numbers for the 2006 wrx would be MUCH appreciated.
