    Newbie to subie etc....

    Just wanted to say hey. Picked up a wrx tr. Bone stock with 28k for work purposes etc... 4 door, decent gas mileage. Fun car to drive. Not sure I'll mod it but who knows. Time will tell. First post and all. Just thought I would get this over with. Being from "the other side" with a 06 A4 GTO the WRX is a different animal to enjoy. Well thats about it. Over and out.

    Quick question though. The plastic shroud to change the oil. How many just leave it off. Its truly a pain to change the oil. Took mine off tonight when changing to synthetic. I'm not sure if I'll clean it up and put back on. Thinking about it. If I hit a log in the road, I doubt it would protect much. Just looking for input. I'm sure there are some short cuts. I'm a newbie etc...

    thanks.

    Welcome, I generally keep mine on, just to keep water and dirt out from there. It is lower than most cars are so I guess it helps to protect it some.

    You can change the oil while leaving it on the car. Just take some cardboard and jam it under the oil filter and let the water drain onto the cardboard and into the drain pan.
