    Get the Kartboy front shifter bushings and rear. Those combined with the SPT short shifter make for a really comfortable precise shifter.

    My personal preference is Kartboy shifter with Kartboy bushings but since you already have the SPT it probably isn't worth getting another new shifter. Definitely do bushings though.

    You may want to take it back to the dealer if it's that bad. I thought it was just the same notchiness I feel going into reverse, but I definitely don't have to go through all that rigamarole to get it in. For me it just kinda hits a point where I have to give a little muscle and it'll click past, but it's not a huge effort.

    I would just avoid 3 point turns altogether.

    Subaru's are notorious for being difficult to get into reverse. By design you should be in first before going into reverse. Double clutching is also very helpful. Also, consider different brake fluid. The OEM stuff isn't all that great and changing to Extra-S (pain to find) or Motul (What I use) can be very beneficial in getting into 1st and reverse

    Nope lol. Motul makes a damn good transmission fluid. Motul Gear 300 75W90 (I know you know that but just to clear up any potential confusion with other posters lol)

    Hmmm...I'll think about the Motul 29k from now. Just had my tranny fluid swapped with Subaru Extra S a month ago.

    I'll replace the blinker fluid next

    Motul makes a great headlight fluid as well, they are the Ace of all fluid trades

    You can't go wrong with Extra-s, its just such a pain to get ahold of sometimes

    The good thing is that because the paint is so bad,you can always repaint in a color of your choice.
