    Smile 1st subby

    I purchased 2003 WRX hatchback couple days ago, i'm new to Turbo cars don't even know what to and what not to. I had 95 corolla, everything was so simple, i opened WRX hood and was stunned ...
    But i'm willing to learn everything, so i can fix some isues by myself.
    Couple first questions:
    1. So far i'we been told to use regular oil, previous owner said he tried to use synthetic 3 times and he had some gasket leaking because of that.
    My new subby in good shape, everything stock, exept 4 tokico d-spec stuts.
    Engine without mods.
    So what will cause oil leak when you put synthetic in it ? For me it sound so wierd.

    2 question:

    I'we got scrapping noise from front brakes area, i already clean the pads and all metal to metal parts, it's still present, and also i have a lot of brake dust on my rims.


    Any help will be apreciated.

    Thanks, i like wagons now.
    After my 95 corolla this car a rocket after 3000 rpm....

    Well the guy said he used synthetic oil, but he had some leaks when did that, so he sugested me to use regular one, coz it doesn't create that much presure or so...
