    welcome.

    i agree with some of the above.. except the radar detector. i've never really been a fan of them.. i feel like if i personally had one, i'd get in more trouble because i'd speed everywhere and think that i would never get caught. to each his own though!

    enjoy the new car

    A good radar detector like an Escort or Valentine 1, if used right, will allow you to speed everywhere.

    Radar detectors are great for letting you know your about to get a ticket.

    As far as mods go, i dont see myself doing much for now. i want to get used to the car. and know it inside out before i bolt on something new.

    however what do you suggest to help maintain a smooth running vehicle?

    drain and refill with new fluids? new brake pads?

    anything i should remove and clean??

    oil changes every 3,000 miles, I am using Mobil1 0w-30. Also use Subaru genuine oil filters.

    get MAF cleaner and clean the MAF sensor on the intake every 10-15k,


    change the tranny and differential fluids every 20-30k.

    Change the brake pads when they start making noise.

    a new Subaru paper air filter cant hurt either.

    Agreed. I used one years ago and have since found being aware of the road and traffic flow is more helpful and effective. A well setup radar trap is can be very difficult to defend against. Let someone else get the ticket.

    0W-30? Why Subau filters are the ones to use: http://www.bescaredracing.com/sti/oil/filters/
